Michaelangelo's experienced chefs delight guests with a finely crafted selection of Piedmontese-style dishes made using classic preparation techniques and fresh, organic ingredients. For lunch, cacciatora con riso bundles a half of a chicken with stewed vegetables and parmesan risotto ($13), and a melanzane layers eggplant terrine, mesclun greens, and aged provolone until it is classified as a skyscraper ($12). For dinner, the pizzaiola, a pounded veal tenderloin with tomato concesse, olives, bocconcini, and herb risotto cake ($32), and the raviolini, a combination of rock shrimp, tomato-cream sauce, and lobster tucked safely in a ravioli casing ($28), voyage into mouths bearing gifts of taste.

When La Dolce Vita'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 saut?ed 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.

The chefs at Acappella at Playhouse Square craft a menu of pastas, veal, and seafood dishes in an eatery conveniently located near Cleveland State University and Playhouse Square. Dinnertime diners can savor the tender medallions inhabiting the veal parmesan ($21.95) or admire the youthful exuberance of the pasta primavera, which is crowned like an Italian beauty queen in fresh seasonal vegetables, alfredo sauce, and a dollop of marinara ($15.95). Alternatively, Groupon holders can quell midday cravings with a lunch portion of seafood pasta ($10.95) or sink their forks into baked chicken parmesan ($6.95). The restaurant's close proximity to Playhouse Square also makes it an ideal spot for couples to commence a night on the town or for hecklers to pick up fresh tomatoes before a show.

More than four decades ago, Corey D. Konicki's grandparents signed the deed for their first restaurant, Angie's Pizza. Over the years, their descendants carried on their culinary tradition of kneading and embellishing pies with only the freshest ingredients — and today, at New Era Grill & Pizzeria, the philosophy and recipes live on. The eatery's menu encompasses the full gamut of Italian eats, but according to a reviewer for the Sun News the mac 'n' cheese reigns supreme. The reviewer applauds the dense, scrumptious pasta for its flavorful trio of cheeses and creamy noodles, which chefs even stuff into the house-made crust of mac 'n' cheese pizzas and into their own mouths. Diners reap the fruits of the chefs' ingenuity in the softly lit dining room, surrounded by exposed brick, cozy booths and a TV.:m]]

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.

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.
