Atwells Avenue, the main artery of the beloved Italian neighborhood of Federal Hill, harks back to the 1950s, when newly arrived Italian immigrants were putting down roots in the area. Today, conversations in the native tongue can be heard on every street corner and outdoor café, not to mention the always lively fountain inside DePasquale Square, where residents like to gather on summer nights and listen to live jazz. Food is the top attraction here, ranging from expertly filled cannoli at Scialo Bros. Bakery to more than 150 varieties of fresh pasta at Venda Ravioli.
