"Home to Old World Style"

Every major city seems to have one, but few can echo the history that Chicago's Little Italy can. The area is home to some of the best known Italian restaurants and the entire area, which encompasses about 12 blocks has a sweet Italian feel to it. Rosebud, a establishment frequented by Frank Sinatra, is still a favorite. Along the street you will find a plethora of Italian goods and you can smell the baking and cooking as you walk along the strip. But the Little Italy of today is not what it once was and most of the Italian residents have long since moved on from the area.

Little Italy had fallen into disrepair for a time in the late 20the century, but as the area around Little Italy and University Village began to be built up so did Little Italy. Today it is a nice area that still boasts some Italian heritage with great eateries and a nice relaxed atmosphere.
