Little Italy, San Diego

(4.1/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Restaurants, retail shops, home design stores, and art galleries line this street in Little Italy. The street was originally an Italian tuna-fishing neighborhood up until the late 1960's and continues to be home to many Italian families. Maintained by the Little Italy Neighborhood Association, this area is a destination for fine Italian wines and gourmet Italian meals. Although the neighborhood is predominantly Italian, a couple of different restaurants offer more variety: A British pub and a craft beer, wine, and sake bar offer late-night dining and drinking.

  • Italian restaurants to eat in a laid-back feel so always crowded. There is no upscale atmosphere, there are pizzerias, and Italy home quite a lot feeling that American pizza shop, you can order in a piece set. There is over here, and many breweries also tour. At the brewery, restaurant meals, but casual atmosphere was clean taste. It is safe even at night.
