Depends what you consider "the south".

South Florida has some communities with a significant percentage of Italian-Americans as does West Virginia.

Independence LA is about 40% Italian or so.

As some others have mentioned, the Gulf portion of the South will have the most visible presence. You'll have some in WV and western VA due to mining and I believe select towns like Drew in the MS Delta have visible populations.

Even in Tampa there is no Little Italy per say. Italians are just prominent in most neighborhoods throughout the metro. They live everywhere other whites live and to a lesser extent Cubans.

Tontitown, Arkansas was founded by Italian immigrants. It is quickly being assimilated into Springdale and other Northwest Arkansas growth cities.

There have always been a number of Italian restaurants there and the city hosts an annual Grape Festival.
