You cant really go wrong with many of the restaurants in Little Italy, but it seems most people have gone to La Dolce Vita or Maxi's at one time or another so one of our esteemed members suggested Trattoria's
http://www.trattoriar... and it won our recent poll by a nose, so close in fact that Antonia's (A wonderful Turkish Restaurant in Cleveland Heights) will be following not to far behind. In an attempt to match everyone's schedule Im putting Trattoria's up for a Tuesday and then Antonia's back on Monday. The meetup is scheduled at 7:00, but I'm going to check what might also be available for fun in Little Italy that night so we may play with the time a little if something comes up within walking distance.

(a walking map an directory of all the businesses in Little Italy) And look for our first cultural festival outing of the year in less than two months as the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church on West 14th kicks of the season with the The Hellenic Heritage Festival May 22cd through the 25th. If anyone has some of those festivals in mind, email me and we will get it up on our schedule.
