4.1/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Restaurants, retail shops, home design stores, and art galleries line this street in Little Italy. The street was originally an Italian tuna-fishing neighborhood up until the late 1960's and continues to be home to many Italian families. Maintained by the Little Italy Neighborhood Association, this area is a destination for fine Italian wines and gourmet Italian meals.
