By Mike in Downtown San Diego Urban Living with 0 Comments

If you’re in San Diego and craving Italian food, there’s no better part of town than Little Italy. San Diego real estate experts at 92101 Urban Living have put together a list of the top 5 Italian restaurants to check out in this neighborhood.

1. Buon Appetito

Buon Appetito tops the list as not only the best of Little Italy, but a favorite local spot for all of San Diego. Patrons appreciate Buon Appetito not only for its famously homemade gnocchi, ravioli, risotto, and lasagna, but also for its top-notch service. The homemade tiramisu is also to die for.

2. Davanti Enoteca

Davanti Enoteca provides a rustic yet romantic atmosphere that is accommodating to both dates and large groups. Their famous cured meats and cheeses are perfect for snacking on while enjoying the San Diego weather out on their unique secret garden patio.

3. Bencotto Italian Kitchen

Literally meaning “well done” or “cooked perfect” in Italian, Bencotto lives up to its name, as it was voted Best Italian Restaurant 4 years in a row by San Diego Magazine. Bencotto emits a friendly and cozy ambience with dishes designed to share. Perfect for picky eaters, Bencotto offers 8 homemade pasta sauces to select from.

4. Filippi’s Pizza Grotto

People who have actually been to Italy may feel immediately nostalgic upon entering this cozy family-owned restaurant. They put pizza in the name of their restaurant for a reason, as their mouth-watering selections truly make it their signature dish. An enormous and delicious meatball sub awaits those who have room for more.

5. Civico 1845

The warm and friendly atmosphere coupled with satisfying and savory dishes makes Civico 1845 a go-to spot for Italian food enthusiasts. The amount of Italian patrons in the restaurant is a sure sign it’s a keeper. If you’re stuck on where to go because you have a vegan friend or family member, Civico 1845 is the place to take them because they also have an extensive and impressive vegan menu.
