About Little Italy, Downtown, San Diego
More details about Little Italy - all the great things about this Downtown San Diego Neighborhood area!
Living in Little Italy
As you walk through Downtown San Diego, you may find your interest straying from the main city scene. One of the biggest things you’ll see is the Little Italy Landmark sign. Generations of Italian families who made their living on the sea found this to be their home. Little Italy is now a lively neighborhood with cozy patio cafés, international restaurants, craft brew stops, urban wineries, art galleries, sophisticated shops, boutique hotels, and the festive Piazza della Famiglia.
San Diego's food and drink scene is centered in Little Italy. It's a place where the past meets the present, where Top Chef alums have set up shop next to old-school eateries that remain treasured landmarks. India Street is lined with restaurants featuring cuisines of both Southern and Northern Italy, including the classic Filippi's Pizza Grotto, featuring an old-fashioned Italian dining experience.
San Diego’s Little Italy covers over 48 square-blocks, making it the largest Little Italy in the US. And our Little Italy is ranked the top Little Italy neighborhood in the nation thanks to the leadership of the non-profit organization, the Little Italy Association — the only district management of its kind in any cultural neighborhood in the United States.
You can still see signs of the Italian-immigrant community that settled here in the 1920s to work in the then-booming tuna industry: the bocce courts at Amici Park, the Italian Renaissance–style frescoes at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, and the imported cheeses and old-school deli sandwiches at Mona Lisa Italian Foods. A few hotels in Little Italy play off that heritage, too, like the 190-room Porto Vista Hotelwith its mod-meets-Mediterranean aesthetic, and The Carté Hotel, part of the Hilton Curio collection, which has a sea-to-table restaurant and the Fonte di Vino wine bar.
Dining in Little Italy
No Little Italy neighborhood would be complete without a true Italian market and Mona Lisa Italian Foods fits the bill. The deli offers a selection of foods, wine and delicious deli sandwiches.
Since 1934, the Waterfront Bar & Grill has been a favorite local watering hole serving locally brewed ales and burgers. Craft Beer is also in the spotlight here with establishments such as Ballast Point Brewing and Bottlecraft Beer Shop & Tasting Room. And for wine lovers, Carruth Cellars Wine Garden and Pali Wine Co. are perfect places for local wine tasting.
The central gathering point in Little Italy is a European-style piazza known at Piazza della Famiglia. The 10,000-square-foot plaza connects India and Columbia streets and features a dramatic tiled fountain. Enjoy an afternoon stroll across the cobblestone street while relaxing before dinner. The piazza, in the "heart" of Little Italy, is dedicated to the past, present, and future families of the Little Italy neighborhood.
