This strip in San Diego has it all: the old, stand-by establishments with grandmother's recipes and the new, posh restaurants with amazing flare, knowledgeable staff and interesting entrees. Walk the streets at night (very safe) and enjoy the "show" of restaurant hosts waving their menus...More

This is such a great place to walk around. You need at least a couple of hours. It is a must that you eat somewhere while you are there.

Downtown San Diego has several Historic Districts and Little Italy is a favorite of mine as it has such a distinctive neighborhood feel. Lots of people out and about and certainly enjoying their restaurants. Wander down India Street to see the overhead Little Italy sign.

Great area with lots of food and bar options. being from an Italian part of Melbourne, Australia we felt right at home here. We tried seafood and Pizza options. All very good. You can walk or catch the trolley from Downtown San Diego.
