Downtown's historic neighborhood
While other Little Italy neighborhoods across the nation are in decline, San Diego's Little Italy is a thriving community. A vibrant ethnic business and residential community since the 1920's, Little Italy today represents downtown San Diego’s oldest continuous neighborhood business district.
Located just a few short blocks from The Westgate, Little Italy boasts excellent art galleries, one-of-a-kind boutique shopping and authentic Italian cuisine all within walking distance. Currently, creative builders and architects are building beautiful new developments and plans for public art displays are in the works.
