I think there are enough "Italian" elements there to justify the name-from restaurants, cafes and ice cream shops. We had a delicious Italian dinner (pasta, Montepulciano wine) at La Forchetta, and delicious creamy ice cream at Dolce.
Little Italy is also a place to experience foreign cultures. This Canadian European-style area is home to many European communities, and many visits are also rich in European and American cuisine.
I don't know if it is an artificial attraction, but there are really many Italians or Italian restaurants here, where you can eat authentic pizza and pasta. The architecture is also very Italian.
Little Italy is very petty bourgeoisie, various cafes, dessert shops, various restaurants, I heard that there are really many Italians here, and most of them are from Italy or their descendants. They are integrated into them and sit with them. Drink coffee on the street for dessert/
Little Italy is on the northwest side of Chinatown. It can be reached within ten minutes by walking, but I am a little disappointed. Except for the little Italy on the street sign, I can't feel any Italian style. Of course, it may be aesthetic fatigue.
Little Mexico Street in Toronto, Canada is a gathering area for Italians. When I was in Toronto, Canada last year, I was experiencing the annual happy festival, so I went to join in the fun. There are various shops on both sides of the street, mainly Italian, cafes, restaurants, etc. In my opinion, the Happy Festival is similar to a domestic temple fair. There are also many dining tables and ovens at the door of many shops. There are also some promotional activities and the distribution of free supplies. Because there were a lot of people and there were performances, I saw some policemen maintaining order. People come and go, it is particularly lively, the leisurely dress and unrestrained enthusiasm of foreigners make the whole atmosphere romantic and pleasant. We are also very excited to be involved.
