Al Fresco


MANDATORY: Visitors are required to wear a face covering, maintain physical distancing, stay within their family unit and follow all other County Health directives.


FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS from 4:00pm to 10:00pm

Ciao Bella! As we welcome back the community to Little Italy, we’re excited to invite you to join us for Little Italy's newest open-air dining experience — Al Fresco!

Under the beautiful San Diego sky, we are closing streets in Little Italy every Friday and Saturday from 3:00pm to 11:00pm to offer open-air dining that will help restaurants alleviate the loss of indoor seating while also creating a safe 30-foot physical distancing promenade for visitors.

Dining in at your favorite restaurants can start as early as 4:00pm and will continue until 10:00pm. Reservations are strongly encouraged to ensure availability and allow for adequate spacing on the physical distancing promenade.

As mentioned above, visitors are required to follow County Health directives including but not limited to wearing face covering, maintain physical distancing, stay within their family unit. Also, the Little Italy Association will be providing hand sanitization stations throughout the footprint of Al Fresco.

Street closures include: India Street from W. Beech to W. Grape Streets including W. Date and W. Fir Streets between Kettner Boulevard and Columbia Street.

Outside the Al Fresco dining zone on India Street between W. Beech and W. Grape Streets, there are several other restaurants and businesses opening for dining and shopping.  For a list of businesses open, click here.

Cin! Cin! (Cheers!) e Mangia Bene! (Eat Well!)
