Taste of Little Italy

Tuesday, June 22, 2021 & Wednesday, June 23, 2021 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm


The Taste of Little Italy is back and ready to welcome the reopening of California. With new guidance from the State coming on June 15th, the Little Italy Association is bringing back the Taste you’ve grown to know and love. Although we will still have some slight modifications in order to ensure public safety, Taste of Little Italy will be reminiscent of pre-pandemic Tastes. This year, the event will be held over two days, with two time slots, allowing plenty of room for attendees and minimizing congestion. As attendees meander through the 48-square-blocks of Little Italy they will sample mouthwatering bites from over 20 culinary gems. Each evening different restaurants will be showcased. The Taste Passport will be provided to ticketholders as a guide, listing all participating restaurants, menu offerings and COVID-19 procedures.

Upon arrival, attendees will check-in at their scheduled time in the Piazza della Famiglia where they will be given their Taste Passport. Guests will then make their way to each restaurant stop, taking away their “tastes” to enjoy at their leisure.

To ensure the safest experience for everyone, attendees are:

  1. Asked to maintain proper physical distancing
  2. Required to wear face masks when they aren’t sampling their “taste.”
  3. Will be split into two different time slots each day to disperse guests more evenly during event hours.


Tickets are priced at $50 for advance purchase, plus a small service fee, and will increase to $55 effective Tuesday, June 15th.

A portion of every ticket sold goes directly back to the restaurants to provide some financial relief from the hardships they have suffered due to COVID-19.
