Little Italy Walk (Self Guided), San Diego

To experience a generous slice of Italian life and some fabulous food, spend some time in San Diego's Little Italy district. This quaint and delightful village is nestled along San Diego harbor in the northwestern downtown area. Historically, it is where generations of Italian families settled and many worked in the once flourishing tuna fishing industry.

Today, the neighborhood is known for superlative Italian restaurants and cafés and is one of the top dining destinations in San Diego. On offer is a wide variety of Italian cuisines, from traditional meals to classical dishes infused with a few contemporary touches. Such is the quality of the cuisine that some of the eateries have garnered numerous awards over the years. Often, these places are packed, so booking ahead is always a good option.

This thriving restaurant area also features cuisines from several other countries. In addition to dining out, visit Italian delis, bakeries and markets for a good selection of food and wines.

As much as the area pleases the taste buds, Little Italy is not only about food. There are also art galleries and retailers selling furniture and fashions. The neighborhood is also a happening place at night with even more good food and drink on the menu.
