Little Italy is located on the Northern section of Downtown San Diego California. It is named after the Italian American immigrants who moved from Genoa and Sicily to San Diego and made a living from the highly successful fishing industry. Two of the most important fixtures that remain in the community are the Washington Elementary School and Our Lady of the Rosary Church. Today, India Street is thriving with hip and cozy little cafes, outside eating, small gourmet food markets, memorabilia shops and Italian restaurants. During special events related to Italian culture, many of these family owned restaurants let you try their specialties. Some of the best Italian fine food and delis can be found on India Street. Organized by The Little Italy Association, Little Italy is the chosen place to have the majority of events and festivals throughout the year such as, Little Italy Carnival (Mardi Gras), the largest Art Walk in San Diego region, Festivale Siciliano, Italian Motorsport Show, and the Precious Fiesta. Wow…this busy district is alive with culture! Every Saturday, this area is home to Mercato: an Italian market featuring vegetables, fruits from local farmers, local bakeries and pastries and art from local artists.
Little Italy is a great place to live, with its many new condos, eateries and shops all within walking distance. Few buildings have been renovated, such as modern high-rise condominiums with views of the bay; mid-level charming and colorful contemporary homes with huge archways, restored Victorian-era buildings and lofts with ground floor shops and a few commercial buildings, all prove the diverse mixture of opportunity and comfort.
