Dine and Do in Little Italy, San Diego

Dine and Do in Little Italy, San Diego, San Diego, California (B)

I’ve had the opportunity to visit Little Italy many times, and each time, I discover something new. It is time to share with you why I think your visit to downtown San Diego should include Little Italy. This is a perfect addition to my ‘Dine & Do’ series because Little Italy is a prime location for dining and doing!

San Diego’s Little Italy was established in the 1920’s. This Italian neighborhood has grown and flourished in the last two decades, mostly because of the dedication of its residents and business owners. A walk into Little Italy today will convince you to stay and enjoy it for awhile. It is a vibrant neighborhood with tree-lined streets, boutiques, art, upscale residential units, quaint bungalows, an incredible foodie scene, several beautiful piazzas, and the Our Lady of the Rosary Church at the heart of it.

Little Italy is a place where people gather. You’ll see residents sitting on their front porches or out walking their dogs, children playing in a piazza, and friends meeting for dinner at a sidewalk cafe.
