Little Italy District
San Diegans of Italian ancestry are working hard to restore and revitalize this seaside district just off downtown San Diego and the results are fabulous. Visitors will enjoy the plethora of Italian markets and bakeries, may watch a game of bolla at the local park or light a candle at the Our Lady of the Rosary Church where Italian fishermen of San Diego's once-massive tuna fleet used to seek blessings. In October, a three-day festival brings 50,000 visitors to the area. Credit card acceptance varies.
the day i went was a Saturday..its so quited and not fun at all...a waste of gas and time..i wonder why is it an attraction..did i missed something a street or a building? maybe it will look different in weekdays..
Come to Litte Italy for a bite to eat and to walk around. It's a nice break from downtown because it's less busy. If you're staying in downtown and want to walk to Little Italy it's only a few miles north.
It's home. You can find fresh Italian bread & cookies � imported cheese & meats � Fresh Italian Food by the load & cappuccinos. It's a small Community, with Artisans, Day spas & Italian residents. Mimo's, Cafe Italia, Larissa & Erin @ Urban Skincare (urbanskincare.com) are some of SD's tops.
There is always something going on in the streets like Stick Ball for the old NYC crowd, and Artwalk in the Spring & Holiday events which invite YOU to come by in period costumes...why did I leave???
I enjoyed SD's Little Italy. Unfortunately it is way too small of an area. We ate at several places and they were all good. There was one place that started with a Z that was particularly yummy. Enjoy!
our family's first trip to little italy. what a blast. some of the oldest buildings in the area, very quaint enjoyable. some of the best italian food we have ever eaten!!! enjoy!
try fillipi's for homemade sauce and sausages.
Not to many places a teenage girl wants to go to hang out with her Mom. We had a great day walking around the atmosphere is charming. The shops are darling.
The food was authentic and delicious.The service was great .We recamend it to others .
My daughter wants to go back again with me.
Many excellent Italian restaurants and I truly enjoyed the Pizza and huge lasagna at Flippi's Pizza Grotto. You can walk to most all with a easy block and a half. Also, just 2 1/2 blocks from the fun San Diego light rail trolley stop. A definite not to be missed in beautiful San-D-Ego.
