What to Expect

Experience a taste of the city's best neighbourhood for food and fun. San Diego’s Italian quarter, Little Italy, has grown in popularity for not just traditional Italian fare, but also for the rich array of local restaurant hot spots that have opened up over the last decade. 


Join your expert guide on a 2.5-hour walking tour of this famed culinary destination, getting an insight into how Little Italy came about and learning about the early fishing industry of San Diego. Visit four amazing restaurants that represent the area and enjoy tasting a combination of mouth-watering Italian flavours and unique bites, including Italian gelato. Wash it down with a choice of tasty wine, sangria or local beer tasters.


In addition to the traditional pasta and pizza dishes, Little Italy offers up top chef cuisine, vegan breakfasts, juicy burgers, and lounges for dancing and fine cocktails. The possibilities to whet your palate are endless. Along the way, you will get to meet some of the local Italians who’ve been a part of the revitalization of the area and, with your personable guide, will give you an understanding of the exciting history and current vibe of the neighbourhood. 


The Venues

Sorrento Ristorante and Pizzeria

This lively family-owned restaurant transports you to the piazzas of Napoli and is known for its traditional dishes, iconic pizzas, and house-made pasta. You will taste one of their famous pasta dishes and calamari, which will both satisfy any craving for an authentic Italian meal. Pair this with a choice of red or white Italian wine.


Queenstown Public House

A New Zealand inspired restaurant with whimsical decor, Queenstown Public House is known for its brunch, grass-fed burgers, a rotating selection of local beer selections, and unique sangrias. Enjoy tasting one of their Little Bitties – a grass-fed slider with onion mayo, cheddar and sweet relish paired with a taster of a local beer or sangria.


Landini’s Pizzeria

This pizzeria is a local staple as a pizza-by-the-slice option for those who want a quick snack. Their New York-style pizza is thin, crispy, and sourced with quality ingredients. Guests get their pick at the slice that looks most appealing to them, but we highly recommend La Piccante with jalapenos, ricotta, pineapple and pepperoni or the Rustica with brussel sprouts, pancetta, and balsamic glaze.



As one of the first traditional Italian bistros, this establishment offers house-made gelato, Italian coffee, and on the go paninis and breakfast. Guests will get to taste a choice of gelato flavours.
