Viva Italia is a diverse Edmonton neighbourhood bursting with the charm and flavours of Europe. While the area’s heritage is steeped in Italian culture, a mix of ethnic and cultural backgrounds make walking and shopping around the district a curious and distinctive adventure.
Stroll the quaint sidewalks and discover unique shops and restaurants offering a mix of old world charm and contemporary amenities. Think hundreds of bottles of olive oil, cappuccino (made the right way), exuberantly told stories around each corner, European-style hand-tied flower bouquets and more tomatoes than you can imagine! Think loud soccer games, a deli that can’t be beat, street festivals that can’t be beat, hotly debated issues of the day and oh, did we mention the food? Sip a latte while the kids play in Giovanni Caboto Park by the old-world fountain or dine on a variety of authentic cuisines.
Here in Edmonton's Little Italy we have events for all ages from movies in the park to hay rides to full out street festivals. Stroll the quaint sidewalks and discover unique shops and restaurants offering a mix of old world charm and contemporary amenities.
