Utica-Rome NY has a pretty high Italian percentage as a metro area(18%). Scranton-Wilkes Barre PA and New Haven CT also come to mind.

The obvious two would be Chicago's little Italy, and Bloomfield in Pittsburgh -- both are larger Italian neighborhoods than Cleveland and San Diego little Italys.

i've been to san diego's (i'm from sd) and have been to chicago's...a few years back we went to philly and the little italy area was VERY little! the italian store keepers told us it became run down when the hispanics moved in. you can definitely tell where little italy ends and the hispanic portion begins. some really great italian food there though, in philly!

I live in a small city of 110 thousand people and about 55 thousand are Italian living in the City. It's an amazing up kept Italian neighborhood with great smells, great food, beautiful houses, and beautiful gardens.

Potentially somewhere in Rhode Island. Surprisingly high percentage of people with Italian heritage.

I definitely felt as if Little Italy was more Hispanic than Italian when I last went.

A few years back.... Hmmm... In the meantime, like currently, there's been a complete revival of East Passyunk Ave which is still the heart of S. Philly's Little Italy. And I guess those Italian store keepers, you spoke to, weren't paying any attention to how neglected the southern half of the Italian Market was before some Asians and hispanics started businesses there.
