Hi everyone, I just moved from a small italian community in Queens, New York to a very small town about 40 minutes from Orlando (St. cloud). I'm missing the italian bakeries, deli's and stuff that I grew up with. I know several people from my old neighborhood that moved to PSL. Is there an italian presence? Is there a particular area in PSL I should look into? We'd be renting from a complex. Are there any malls or movie theaters? My current neighborhood only has a very tiny old fashioned movie theater and that's about it as far as entertainment.

The area is not background specific.... no special areas for Nationality--let your fingers so the walking on the Internet

I'm sorry, I wasn't intending on my post being offensive. It's public record that PSL is 13% italian, which is number 4 on the list of amount of Italians in a city in Florida. I'm just looking for a neighborhood that has a few things that my neighborhood I grew up in had.. like bakeries and delis. I did google that and it seems like PSL has those things.

St. Lucie Bakery in the Morningside Shoppes is supposed to be where all the Italians go to get authentic Italian items.

The line is out the door, especially during holidays.

But, there are no "Italian neighborhoods" in the city. Everyone is mixed all around. Plenty of shops and theaters.

I almost spit my coffee all over the laptop over that!!

There are a ton of Italians here...mainly because there are so many NY'ers that live here. You will have nol problem finding the things you want. St Lucie Bakery is awesome, but so is Bella Roma on Bayshore. There are many good Italian restaurants as well. Don't listen to us though- come on down for a visit and check it out yourself!

Roma Bakery (the folks who own it are originally from Queens) has been here for 35 years, and they recently gave up their old location and bought an Italian deli/butcher/prepared foods market and are now called Bella Roma. I can tell you first hand that there are plenty of Italians here. You should see the crowds at Roma on a Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter morning picking up their specialty holiday bakery items.

Port St. Lucie is the 9th largest city in the state and there is much more here than what you describe in your current location, tho' NYC it ain't.
