Places in Little Italy

Mamma mia!

The best time to visit this neighbourhood is when you are hungry. The Italian influence on this country’s gastronomy is obvious here. Little Italy is a great place to try this culinary fusion, as every single restaurant has something delicious to offer. In addition to pizza and spaghetti and meatballs, you can’t leave without having tried a typical Cannoli dessert. Originating in Sicily, this tasty treat is extremely popular, and is made with a mixture of cheese and chocolate, vanilla or fruit. This neighbourhood is practically the only place where you will find hand-made Cannolis. If you visit in the afternoon, don’t forget to sample an authentic gelato in one of the many ice-cream parlours.
