We stopped off here when we were on the trolley tour. Not quite sure what I was expecting but was more than a good cup of coffee and cannoli

Thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay here. Nice and quite area close the beach front and public transport. Best thing was the cafes and restaurants providing us with many eating options. I would stay in Little Italy again and if I wasn't staying I would make sure I visited for the food.

Little Italy has a charming market on weekends, lots of people and great local products on sale. You van get here easily by trolley. To reach the market, start upeilla from the little Italy station. Not a huge amount oh shops, but great restaurants. Pretty area, worth a visit.

Don't miss this area for a good Italian meal. You will actually hear Italian spoken and will enjoy sitting in a curbside café soaking in the atmosphere. Great place to stop for lunch. Check the menus though not all the restaurants are consistently good or reasonable in price.

A great place to walk through. On Saturday morning the streets are closed to a farmers market. The stores surrounding the area are filled with great restaurants, pizza shops, and dessert shops.

It was an easy walk from our hotel. Lots of restaurants to pick from. Fun atmosphere and people walking on a weekend night. Pricey food.

A lively, exciting area of San Diego that is contagious! Lots of restaurants, bars, night spots for the young professional, or the young at heart! The area is constantly busy so expect a wait. The problem is parking, metered parking is available along the streets, however, they are usually taken. If you are visiting San Diego and staying nearby the... More
