Little Italy

The Italian heritage of this area is still alive and well in the residents, restaurants and shops that line its streets. The row homes, cultural festival and events, flags hanging on the light posts and archway that welcomes you to the area are tributes to the immigrant families who left their homeland of Italy to live in Wilmington. St. Anthony of Padua Church and its community buildings are the anchor for the neighborhood which has fine restaurants, Italian specialty shops, a bakery and bars all within walking distance.
