Cleveland's Little Italy...report

Shadow Jun 29, 2010 12:59 AM

We recently were in Cleveland for a wedding..coming from CA. My Aunt is Italian and she and her family lived in Cleveland's Little Italy section for many years. My cousin gave me a few names of restaurants to have lunch in (they go back to the area at least once a month). On the top of the list was Nido Italia....we sat outside and had the best Linguine with clams...ever! Lots and lots of little clams...yum..the flavor of the dish was spot on! We sat outside and took in the day to day life of the area. Also, Corbo's bakery...what a treat for us Californian's to have the real deal of canoli's...stuffed after purchase, yummy and smooth...very smooth! OMG...wonderful. The Italian side of my family (most are Irish in my family) know how real this area is, they lived there for years.

How I wish I had something as real and good as Nido Italia and Corbo's!!

      I've generally found Little Italy to be hit or miss, but I have to agree on Corbo's! It is always delicious. I don't think I've tried Nido Italia. I'll have to put it at the top of my list for the next time I'm in town. (I'm originally from Cleveland, and make it back there 4-5 times a year.)
