We usually rush through Little Italy to get dinner. So, we decided to take a leisurely group wine tour. We learned about the history of the area. I'm old enough to remember when this was a predominately residential area. There are still a few bungalow style homes. We first stopped at Our Lady of the Rosary, which I had never visited. It is charming and well worth a stop inside. We walked, stopped for wine and snacks, walked and drank and ate and then did it some more. We got a light meal of charcuterie, pizza and bruschetta at Sorrento. We will definitely go back there!
Little Italy is a great area for tourists. It is a small area, but packed with Italian restaurants, other cuisines like Argentinean food and hip California, bars, ice cream places and other shops. It is a very short walk from the harbor area.
