Some authentic, some questionable. Nothing compares to being in Italy but walking the streets and trying the eats and treats, we could really tell which restaurants were authentic and which were just there for the tourists. Overall, merchandise is chachky-touristy items.

There is some good food, though there are so many restaurants it's hard to choose where to go. On weekends it is pretty crowded, you can barely walk on the sidewalk.

By reading reviews online I was under the impression that Little Italy was somehow "fancier" than Gaslamp, but I found the opposite, I would describe Little Italy more "cozy" since everything is more tight together and crowded. Gaslamp is more spacious and most restaurants feel like a better a level up from Little Italy.

Lots of restaurants and fake Italian accents. Service was horrible and slow, definitely a good tourist restaurant area, but I had better Italian food at the Mission Bay area.

Little Italy was great to go to. We ate at Mona Lisa's and enjoyed it immensely. The jets coming into SAN fly so close to the buildings!!! So much fun. Great wines and different places made it an enjoyable evening for all.

Not my first time to San Diego, but it was my first time to Little Italy.....tons of places to eat, but if you go on a weekend night, expect a long wait. Very nice area and lots of places to eat.

Many street people in this area and many are volatile so be aware of your surroundings. Lots of great places to eat. Only irritating street parking availability but pricing is not horrible if you can find a spot.

The neighborhood consists of several blocks of Italian restaurants and wine shops. Nothing special. It’s clean, safe, family-friendly, but nothing to write home about.

Our guide, Cynthia, was wonderful, very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. This walking culinary tour let us experience a variety of great Italian specialties. We’ve been to San Francisco many times, but never experienced North Beach from this perspective.
