The St. Anthony of Padua ITALIAN FESTIVAL attracts 75,000 visitors to the Little Italy area of Wilmington, Delaware every year - but even after the crowds disperse, a deep respect for the traditions of Italian cuisine is evident throughout the region all year long.

If you're looking for classic family-owned Italian, spots like RISTORANTE ATTILIO and LUIGI VITRONE'S PASTABILITIES occupy much of Little Italy and offer all the familiar tastes and smells of a Sunday supper with grandma. More contemporary spins on classic dishes can be found inside PICCOLINA TOSCANA, where many small plates make the menu perfect for sharing and sampling. NEWARK'S Main Street offers polished charm and one very well-stocked dessert case at CAFFE GELATO, as well as a modern take on rustic Italian cuisine at TAVERNA.
