“Saturday Farmer's Market great time to visit Little Italy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

My husband and I caught the trolley from downtown San Diego to Little Italy. It was a short journey. Once we got there at around 8:30am there were so many vendors set up. Everything was so delicious. Many stalls had free samples from almonds, healthy green smoothies, raisin scones, cheese etc. I was in food heaven. I am a particular eater in terms of food vendors and cleanliness. The vendors all had gloves and the stalls were clean. There was also many organic vendors. I had such a great time. If I lived in San Diego I would visit every week. This is a great family outing. Plus it was free and fun.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A 10-15 minute walk from the gas lamp area to little Italy. Lots of Italian restaurants along India street to choose from. We ate at Cafe Zucchero in the outside area and had a great lunch. They have there own bakery onsite which is also well worth a visit to pick up something sweet after.

“Real Boston NY Pizza at Landini's pizza san diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I was shocked to find the first Boston/NY crust since I have been here.
I was told they could not do it do to the water and/or the humidity but these guys do it.
We stayed right around the corner and must have eaten there 4 times in a week.
It was also the cheapest we (2 kids) ate in the town.
