We did not really understand what all of the fuss was about...its literally 1 small street. We drove past it and through it twice before we realized that we were actually there. There are a lot of different restaurants there, so if you're into Italian you can probably find something nice to eat. If you're looking for a super lively... More

We first went during the day,but I didn't really enjoy the atmosphere as I did for dinner,it's really nice at night with their restaurants on the side walk,good restaurants but not less than $80 per couple plus tip! A more of a mid 30s and up crowd

We had never been to Little Italy S.D. before..really hip little area with restaurant after restaurant, out door cafes, really cute, lively. Hard to choose a spot to eat, they all look great..parking not great however..we had to pay $7.00 in pay lot..drove everywhere and could not find street parking.

We went when they shut down a portion of the area for street ball and a market. This was a great experience watching the street ball being played with so much passion! The food was great and the vendors willing to let you sample their goods, how can you go wrong?

When we got off the trolley, I was expecting an instant Italain treat. In truth, there is nothing really there. However, there is a lovely little park with a cooling water feature where your kids can splash and you can cool your aching feet.

India street is the main location to find good restaurants. We walked in the afternoon and had lunch ar La Villa. Dining in the patio is great! My favorite on the menu is pork belly. Delicious! This is the place to hang out in the evening. The street is well lit. Beautifful! Lots of people waliking back and forth, young... More

The Saturday morning Farmer's Market at Little Italy is a great place to go and people watch, or pick up a few fresh produce items. We bought some fruit, and a few other things, and then were disappointed to see the exact same things at Trader Joes for close to half the price. There were several food stands, and everything...
