Little Italy is definitely worth the visit if you are downtown San Diego. There are many little restaurants in this area. My favorites are Mimmo’s Italian Village and Fillipi’s Pizza.
Mimmos Italian Village is a nicer Italian restaurant in Little Italy. Their food is traditional Italian. I love their chicken parmesan and the antipasti salad.
They have a lovely outdoor patio that I would suggest as my first choice of seating. Indoors is a little more traditional with mural paintings on the walls.
Fillipi’s Pizza is a lot more casual and is known to have some of the best pizza in San Diego! Anytime I want good pizza, I go to Fillipi’s. Their pizza had the thick doughy crust. You cannot go wrong with any of the pizzas.
