Piazza della Famiglia
The Piazza della Famiglia opened in March of 2018. Visitors and residents can stroll through the 10,000-square-foot European-style piazza on W. Date Street, connecting India and Columbia Streets. A beautiful tiled fountain sits at the East side of the Piazza and tables and chairs with umbrellas line the cobblestone street—inviting the public to take in the beautiful scene and San Diego Bay views over lunch, coffee or a gathering with friends and family. Piazza della Famiglia is located in the “heart” of Little Italy and is dedicated to the past, present, and future families of the Little Italy neighborhood. It has become a central community gathering place to host farmers’ markets, concerts, cultural events, and more. A new addition in 2021 is the Piazza della Famiglia dedication monument on the West side of the Piazza. The monument holds the story of the Piazza and those that helped bring it to fruition and depicts an embossed olive tree – the symbol of the Piazza della Famiglia. The olive tree was selected as a symbol of family, the strong roots and trunk that nourish the offspring that brings new life and family for generations.
Piazza della Famiglia is developed by H.G. Fenton Company. The project is a mix of public, residential, retail and restaurant space, including 125 apartment homes over 16,000 square feet of retail and restaurants on the ground levels surrounding the Piazza. Businesses at the Piazza include Farmer’s Table, Morning Glory, Little Italy Food Hall, Graze by Sam, Frost Me Café & Bakery, and Princess Pub & Grille.
