Little Italy is San Diego’s charismatic slice of Italy’s modern style and old-world sensibility. Most importantly, it’s a place that holds a special place in the hearts of most San Diegans.
Just ask any local and they’ll sigh and say how much they love to love Little Italy.
Little wonder. Hours spent in Little Italy are the closest you can get to the nonchalant la bella vita that Italians are masters in.
Walk past a circle of old men conversing in rapid Italian, stroll past mom’n’pop shops while nibbling a cup of gelato, sip your espresso at an outdoor café, duck into an Italian wine bar lit up by candlelight, or simply eat your way silly through the seemingly endless options of Italian and fusion restaurants.
In Little Italy, you can act as if there are no deadlines to meet, no schedule to abide by. Little Italy is the cosmopolitan side of San Diego’s famed easy-going lifestyle.
What makes this neighborhood even better? It’s literally steps from the glistening waters of San Diego Bay, for even more strolling and sweet living.
What’s my dream day exploring Little Italy and San Diego Bay?

Below are my picks for three diverse, adventurous evenings – just add good company and enjoy! South Bay Drive-in and Ye […]
LEGOS are part of the furniture at our house. I find them in the couch and some mornings wake to a coffee table topped with LEGO monuments from imaginary worlds. So a visit to LEGOLAND, California in Carlsbad is a treat for my family. I ventured out with my six-year-old boy and two eight-year-old girls. […]
For years, it was known as one of the happening spots. Every week, people from all over San Diego would pack The Magic Lounge – a cool, magic themed bar where employees would pull double duty as bartenders and magicians.
