We’re so excited to bring back Taste of Little Italy this year on June 22 and 23 from 4 to 6 p.m., closer to a format you’ve all grown to know and love. As one of the top events in our beautiful neighborhood, it’s a great feeling to be able to welcome everyone back, after the turbulent year we’ve had.

People say the way to a man’s heart is through food, so what a better way to continue the Father’s Day celebration than with some tickets to Taste? Once you check-in at the Piazza della Famiglia, you’ll receive a Taste Passport, provided to ticketholders as a guide, listing all participating restaurants, and menu offerings.
Tickets are priced at $50 for advance purchase, plus a small service fee, and increase to $55 on June 15. A portion of every ticket sold goes directly back to the participating restaurants to provide some financial relief from the hardships they have suffered due to COVID-19. For a full list of participating restaurants and to purchase your tickets to the 13th Annual Taste of Little Italy, visit www.tasteoflittleitalysd.com. We can’t wait to see you there!
