A taste of Italy
San Diego's historic Little Italy community is just minutes away from Shelter Island and consistently ranks as one of the best Little Italy neighborhoods in the nation. The community is rooted in a rich heritage from the thousands of Italian immigrants who came to San Diego's shores in the 1920s to work in the tuna fishing industry. Explore its many restaurants, urban wineries and craft breweries, delis, art galleries, shopping venues, boutique hotels and the impressive central plaza, the Piazza della Famiglia.
