Overview

Sip a strong espresso at an outdoor cafe, grab a quick pizza for lunch or dine in style at a gourmet Italian restaurant in this historic section of the city, also know as Little Italy. You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

From amazing Italian dining to Great Dessert locations this is an all-around must see... If you're in the mood for Italian I would definitely recommend Sienna or a Zooma..

Nice feeling of a “little Italy” although there are other food options. Nice mix of business, couples, families, couples.
