Bloomfield is Pittsburgh’s Little Italy. In the early 20th century, hundreds of Italians from the Abruzzo region settled here, opening restaurants and businesses in an attempt to recreate a little piece of coastal Italy in snowy Pennsylvania. Today, that heritage is evident in unique, family-owned businesses, groceries, and restaurants. It’s a welcoming, tight-knit community with distinct charm, and in recent years it’s become a haven for the Pittsburgh grad-student set. It’s easy to see why: Rents are affordable, the neighborhood is attractive, and Carnegie Mellon and Pitt are a short bus ride away.
