This year brings newcomers including Above Ash Social, Burgeon Beer Co., Bun & Patti, Coco Maya, CooCoo’s Nest and The Yasai along with neighborhood staples like Caffe Italia, Civico 1845, Graze by Sam and Filippi’s Pizza Grotto.

“Taste of Little Italy has drawn hundreds of people from across the county year after year, and we are so excited to welcome the event back into the community for its 15th year,” said Chris Gomez, district manager of the Little Italy Association. “Little Italy is a culinary oasis filled with some of San Diego’s best bites and we can’t wait for the community to come together once again and sample everything from entrees and drinks to decadent desserts. The Taste sells out every year so be sure to secure your spot and purchase tickets early.”

Upon arrival, attendees will check-in at their scheduled time in the Piazza della Famiglia where they will be given their Taste Passport. Ticketholders will then venture throughout the neighborhood to each restaurant stop and taste delicious plates from San Diego’s culinary gems, each earning a stamp on their passport. General tickets are currently available for $55, plus a service fee.
