Filled with historic charm and a wealth of food to enjoy, San Diego's Little Italy is one of the city's most popular areas to visit. Encompassing 48-square blocks, this neighborhood boasts the largest Little Italy in the country. From its beginnings as a fishing village for Italian immigrants, this area is now filled with an array of authentic Italian restaurants, boutique stores and one of the best farmers' markets in the city. Try these places to explore not far from these San Diego apartments:


Nestled in the heart of this bustling neighborhood, Little Italy Mercato is one of the area's most popular destinations. Reminiscent of a village market in Italy, Little Italy Mercato sets up every Saturday throughout the year. Covering six blocks, this famed farmers' market offers an incredible selection of fresh produce, artisan crafts, flowers, and other specialty items. 


Open since 1956, Mona Lisa Italian Foods is a Little Italy mainstay. Family owned and operated through three generations, Mona Lisa Italian Foods is filled with old-world charm. Consisting of a deli and a full-service restaurant, this mom-and-pop eatery offers Italian favorites such as a Caprese or Sopressata sandwich from the to-go shop or generous portions of classics such as Pasta Al Forno or Chicken Parmigiana from the dining room.


In business since 2011, Bottlecraft Beer Shop and Tasting Room has become one of San Diego's most visited beer providers. With over one hundred specialty beers as well as 25 draft lines, Bottlecraft is a beer lover's dream. The industrial-style digs feature large garage doors that make for a spacious indoor/outdoor tasting area. In addition to the bar space, there is also an area dedicated to selling those hard-to-find beers from around the world.
