Exploring Little Italy and it’s history.

San Diego’s Little Italy, ripped apart by freeway construction in the 1960s, took awhile to recover but over the last decade has become one of this seaside city’s most desirable neighborhoods. Downtown redevelopment, which began in the city’s Gaslamp Quarter in the middle 1980s, at last reached Little Italy, on downtown’s northern fringes, bringing with it an eclectic blend of stylish condos, funky boutiques and classy restaurants. Today Little Italy is known as one of San Diego’s premier dining meccas, with trendy new eateries joining standbys that have been around since the community was a quiet little fishing village. Today there are many great points of interest for you to explore. Please click on the links below to help you discover what Little Italy has to offer:
