About Little Italy

Delicious Italian food and shopping, along with public art displays and piazzas tell the story of San Diego’s Little Italy, once a thriving community of 6000 Italian families working in the tuna industry. Newly renovated streets and store-fronts, along with a popular Saturday Farmer’s Market liven up the community, located near Downtown San Diego and the airport. Little Italy is popular for those who want nightlife and fine dining at a slower pace than the Gaslamp Quarter. And, if shopping is on your agenda, numerous art galleries, home decor stores and even antique dealers are worth a visit.
