Information about the Taste of Little Italy
The Taste of Little Italy is an annual event held in the hip and historic downtown Neighborhood of Little Italy San Diego. The event is usually held in June and is a great event to help kick off the summer season. If you are visiting in the summer and staying at the economy Pacific Inn in Little Italy San Diego, this event is surely one you won’t want to miss.
With a ticket, you can stroll through the streets of Little Italy and enjoy appetizers, entrees, beverages and desserts, served by the area’s top restaurants. The showcased restaurants will highlight both seasonal entrees, as well as specialty items from their personal menus. The event is similar to a pub crawl, allowing attendees to stroll from one participating restaurant to the next. Unlike some of the street festivals in Little Italy, the Taste of Little Italy is more of an in-restaurant event and participants will enjoy their meals inside of each individual restaurant.
How Do I Participate in this Little Italy Event?
Tickets for the Taste of Little Italy event are available at the Taste of Little Italy’s officially website with ticket prices typically around $35 dollars. Tickets usually sell out, so if you know you are going to be in town during the event, advance purchase is highly recommended.
On the day of the event, you will take your ticket and check in at the marked Taste of Little Italy kiosk. This kiosk will be in the center of the district at the corner of India and Date Street. Here, you will receive a “Taste Passport.” You will be asked to show your passport at each participating restaurant and they will then mark that you received your taste. The Passport also includes a list of each restaurant and what they will be serving, as well as a map to help you navigate your way through Little Italy.
If you are unable to get tickets in time for the event, the Little Italy district, as well as participating restaurants will still remain open to the public.
