Lunch in Little Italy SD?
My husband and I are planning on grabbing some lunch in Little Italy today, anyone have any suggestions on where to get something CHEAP and YUMMY?
Mona Lisa deli (not the restaurant attached) for some of the best italian sandwiches ever. Certainly the best in SD. I recommend the one with all of the italian hams in it (I think it's the Deluxe or the Special?) and the Caprese. Pick up a Lemon or Orange Pelligrino can in the back to with it. Wonderfully cheap and excellent.
Otherwise, go to Mimmo's. By day they are a full service walk-up deli and sit down. At night they're just sit down. You can get pizza, pasta, side salads of all kinds, and of course more italian sandwiches. They have tons of space indoors, a patio out front, and even a private patio in the back, which no one seems to use but is a great quiet little spot.
Also a quick and cheap spot.
And don't forget some espresso at Caffe Italia and some gelato a few blocks up at Pappalecco.
