La Strada’s expansive space has “the ambiance of dining on an Italian piazza after sunset” according to Cleveland Magazine. Distressed paint covers the walls in muted colors, and unfinished wood trim balances the ornate framework around the bar. Eclectic sculptures stand in nooks or sneak out to watch wall projections of black-and-white movies like the Fellini film for which the La Strada was named.

Like the vagabonds followed by Fellini's camera, the restaurant's menu roams from place to place. The kitchen staff employs premium ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, whole grains, and artisan cheese in dishes inspired by the traditions of Italy and the Mediterranean. Flatbread pizzas get crowned with kalamata olives, feta, and hummus, and pastas are tossed with a variety of vegetables. Varied seating lets patrons huddle in pairs, dine out of doors, or pass the time playing telephone at family-sized tables that seat up to 12.

At Gillespie's Map Room, a glistening row of taps pours forth mouthwatering glassfuls of tasty suds while ovens roast cheesy discuses of thin-crust pizza to crispy perfection. Nestled in the Warehouse District, a stone's throw away from Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field, Gillespie's Map Room relishes in its location at the heart of Cleveland's bustling nightlife neighborhood, as well as the adrenaline gland of the city's boisterous sports center. A no-frills row-house façade decked in humming neon shamrocks and wood-lined glass panels exudes a heartwarming turn-of-the-century charm. Inside, an interior of rough brick walls, live acoustic music, and a roaring fireplace frames relaxing post-shift beers and hearty meals of chili-topped hot dogs or pollock-fillet fish 'n' chips with welcoming hominess.

Reddstone head chef Jeff James draws on ingredients culled from Cleveland’s local farms and shops to craft a menu of Asian-inspired appetizers, grilled sirloin burgers, and pizzas laden with innovative toppings such as fried squid and duck confit. Traditional pub taters take a gourmet turn with chipotle ketchup and truffle aioli dips, and chopsticks strain and splinter as they attempt to lift hefty asian reubens laden with schezuan corned beef and kim chi. The bar’s taps issue forth frosty cascades of beer to soothe tongues overheated by the surf 'n' turf pizza’s sriracha tomato sauce or the Cleveland Heart Attack’s spicy italian sausages and smoked bacon. The leafy shade of an alfresco patio contrasts with the interior's charming brick walls and pressed-tin ceiling, and the polyrhythms of live jazz music mirror the menu’s distinctive cross-section of culinary themes.

When La Dolce Vita Bistro's chefs aren't serving the crowds of diners during Little Italy's annual Feast of the Assumption Festival, they craft iconic Old-World cuisine for the restaurant's diners. The chefs dedicate themselves to the dishes' original flavors by ordering entire bales of Italian parsley and importing plum tomatoes through the Atlantic Ocean's subterranean tunnels. These ingredients add a distinctive Italian essence to the menu of oven-crisped pizzas, freshly blanched pastas, and sautéed veal tenderloins. Outside the kitchen, the atmosphere gets a dose of Italian essence from classic Italian films that, according to Gayot, are screened against the dining room's back wall. While taking orders, servers can help diners complete their meals by recommending wines from the 200-bottle-strong list.
