Lovely small neighbourhood with lots of nice restaurants. Good place to hang around with friends and families for a lovely meal and gathering. It has a lovely Little Italy Mercato Farmer's Market on Saturday morning with lots of local farmers' produce.

A very cool, centrally located area of San Diego! Came here twice for dinner and dessert during a week-long visit to San Diego. Loved seeing all of the restaurants, particularly all of the outdoor seating. Great food, pastries, gelato!

During my travels it was Halloween night. It seemed all the local restaurants were handing out candy to local kids. It was very cool. The food was fantastic.
