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.
