The Italian area you're talking about is Overbrook Park, not Farms. Two different areas. Overbrook Park is largely mixed now, not just Italian. A very nice area, very walkable. Not close to downtown, but well served by bus transit.

Wynnefield is also still a beautiful area, the wine homes holding up well. The closer to St Joe's the better the housing stock, but more expensive of course.

Without knowing what your budget is, my first instinct is Naval Square, which is a gated community in Grad Ho, which is central to everything you are looking for, as well as near the Expressway if you need to get out of town easily. I don't think it's particularly Italian, though.
