I visited this area as it is recommended as somewhere you need to visit while in San Diego. I just don't understand though as there is nothing particularly outstanding or interesting. Yes, plenty of restaurants but there are a million and one restaurants throughout San Diego. Maybe it is more interesting and vibrant to visit at night, mine was a... More

I went here on a Saturday morning at the suggestion of a local friend and had a blast checking out all of the wares (and particularly foods!) presented by the various vendors. Go hungry and just graze! But bring your wallet - you are certain to find something to take home with you.

We visited Little Italy at night and had been told to give it a try. While we couldn't get in to the restaurant we were referred to visit (the line was out the door!)... we had a great time walking the streets of Little Italy and taking in all of the character and charm of the area. There's dozens of... More

Stayed nearby and was able to try a couple of the restaurants in Little Italy. I have lived in Italy for a year, and the food brought back good memories, very authentic. The pasta was homemade, as were the breads and salad dressings. The long line at the Italian market was so long, we gave up, which is the reason... More

I come from a New York Italian family, so every time I visit San Diego I MUST go to Little Italy to buy some delicious food! The markets are so quaint and smell amazing! Parking can be a little chancy, but totally worth the effort!

The Little Italy area along India Street boasts many great Italian restaurants, delis, and shops that you will not find in any other area of San Diego. This is definately worth a visit to get some great food and shopping.

We went on Saturday morning for the farmer's market and were very impressed. They had great food options and a wide array of fresh food and local jewelry. Musicians played on the corners and the weather in San Diego is always great for walking around. I only wished that I lived here so that I could cook with those amazing... More
