Great area

Only visited for 2 days, but wondered about and found some great places to eat/drink and everything was very nice. I'd recommend the area!

This was my first time to this area. It was great. A lot of food, shops and places to drink. There was some sort of festival going on and that added a lot to the visit. The place was very crowded. A lot of cool people. Definitely a place I would come to for great Italian food. Don't miss visiting... More

It's a huge area with tons of shops and of course restaurants. It's worth the time to poke around in this city unto itself

Very small :( I'm from NYC and thought it would be similar but it definitely is not.... went to a restaurant that was good(okay food) but the area is basically 2-3 blocks long.

This are a number of Italian restaurants in this area. If you crave Italian, this is where you should go. You need to walk the area and read menus to decide which is your best choice. Eventually you will find what you want.

Went to little Italy for dinner . It was really busy . Street full of restaurants . Although we waited for 1 and a half hours for a table , the pastas were excellent . It's good to take a walk down the street and go early to get a table at your preferred restaurant over there.

Charming, cool fun neighborhood in downtown San Diego. We loved strolling through the shops and restaurants and sampling treats from the farmer's markets. Card shops, jewelry shops, and gorgeous flowers everywhere. Add this place to your travel itinerary!

What a cute place to walk around. There are lights around strung up and it smells so good here!! They really pay attention to their roots as well, there were light flags of John Basilone and other italians. Definitely go to Civico 1845 to eat when you are here- seriously, don't go anywhere else Civico 1845 is THE BEST place... More
