Situated on the northern edge of the San Diego Bay and where the past meets present, Little Italy was once home to the successful tuna industry and is where many Italian families flourished. Today, Little Italy is a dynamic, lively neighborhood studded with patio cafes and five-star restaurants, upscale shopping, art galleries and features the beautifully landscaped Amici Park. Bordered by Cortez Hill, Columbia and is within walking distance from the Embarcadero, Little Italy is one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods. From impressive single family homes to modern high-rise dwellings, there is a blend of residential options available to suit any taste and price point.
Another reason people love living in Little Italy is the local culture. On Saturdays from 8am to 2pm residents and visitors alike enjoy a stroll through the Little Italy Mercato, a three block expanse where local farmers, artisans, bakeries and restaurants open up stalls brimming with one-of-a-kind goods and bites that will keep you coming back for more.
