An old neighborhood, whose commercial activity is living off it's romantic past. Themenu's I obseved were mostly 50's comfort food with one or two outliers. In my view not worth the parking hassle.

Definitely worth a trip for great Italian food and pastries. Many restaurants were only open for dinner. Many restaurants had outside dining. On street parking.

We ate at Mia Bella and it was outstanding! Then we had dessert at Presti's bakery which was incredible. It was really busy but it moved pretty quickly. Other than the restaurants, there's not much else to do in this area.

Yes. There was a time many, many years ago when that was not true and you may be asking that question because you heard some rumors. I don't think that is true anymore.
