If you could only eat dinner at one Italian in Little Italy in San Diego where would it be?

      I really enjoy Cafe Zucchero..

      I was going to say the Waterfront Bar and Grill but you did specify Italian but dang, the Texas cheeseburger is one of the best and you just can't beat a great dive bar!

        Filippi's Pizza Grotto has a great atmosphere, old school feel, and
        yes decent (not great) food. But an excellent casual date in Little Italy
        Then onto The Waterfront for drinks!

          Puerto La Boca would be my choice.

            La Boca is Argentinian...

              It is Argentinian, but like many Argentinian restaurants it has an Italian-influenced menu. Really great calamari and pastas- it is usually my first choice in Little Italy as well with Buon Appetito running a close second.
