Explore its vibrant food and wine scene
The bright lights of Little Italy’s landmark sign draw guests into this lively neighborhood. Steps from our San Diego hotel, Little Italy’s streets are lined with trendy and traditional Italian restaurants, art galleries, shops and bars. Every Wednesday and Saturday, the Little Italy Mercato, the city’s largest farmers market, sells a wide variety of flowers and local foods to peruse. The neighborhood's crown jewel, the Piazza della Famiglia is a beautiful photo spot in the heart of Little Italy. From there, window shop at the dozens of art galleries that dot the streets or stop by stylish stores like Stroll. And if you’ve had enough pasta and meatballs at Barbusa, the Little Italy Food Hall has something for every eater, from burgers to tacos.
