i ask because i want to visit your city, but i want to make sure there is an italian neighborhood. i REFUSE to visit any city that doesn't have an italian neighborhood (just not worth my while). i have to feel comfortable around people that know how to behave, are super repsectful, have delicious food, and live like honest good hearted catholics. if i like i will buy something in that great italian neighborhood. my grandfather started a foccacia EMPIRE and kow we are looking to expand, if people are up on the level of enjoying high-end bread!

LOL, this should go over well. Can't wait to see the responses from us Non-Italians who don't know how to behave, lol. I'm ashamed to be in the same state as you.

Nah, that's alright... no need for fancy bread here- we'll just stick to our Wonder bread made by Atheists in the Mission.

If you're talking about North Beach, yeah. But it's today probably majority Chinese, because of the growth of Chinatown which is next to it. It's not really an Italian neighborhood per se these days, though many of the traditional shops are still around. I got my wedding cake at that fantastic bakery, Victoria Pastry. And yes, Molinari's is the place for your deli meats and cheeses.

Similarly, in New York City, Little Italy is next to Chinatown (across Canal Street) but as the younger generation of Italian Americans move away to the suburbs, the Chinese have also moved in.

Italian-Americans are "respectful" and "know how to behave?" That's a new one.

Unfortunately there are few true Italian neighborhoods left in big cities. The Italians became well to do and headed to the suburbs. There is a really good Italian restaurant I can recommend in San Francisco - Caffe Sport.
