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.
From architectural style to life tastes are full of Italian style.
The multi-ethnic, multi-cultural characteristics of the place.
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/
