Insider Tips

  • Lake View Cemetery borders Little Italy. Some stone masons who once called the neighborhood home rest there alongside John D. Rockefeller and Eliot Ness.

  • Kids will love the modernized playground along Mayfield Road. There are chessboards, too, if you want to exercise your brain.

  • Valet parking here isn't destination-specific. Drop off your car at any of the stations on Mayfield Road (Thursday-Saturday) or the one on Murray Hill Road (Friday & Saturday) for $5.

  • The private Montenerodomo Citizens Club is underneath Michelangelo's. If your descendants don't hail from the Italian city, an annual $15 social membership gets you into the club and allows you to buy tickets to social events such as Palm Sunday breakfast.

  • A stroll through the community garden behind Tony Brush Park is a nice end to your night. Just keep your hands off the veggies.

  • If you dine at Primo Vino, try a Menabrea beer. It was the first Cleveland restaurant to carry the import, made by Italy's oldest brewery.

  • Sidari Italian Food's pasta production facility on East 119th Street supplies many of the neighborhood's restaurants. Its pastas are made with machinery imported from Italy.
