Valentine’s Day in San Diego’s Most Romantic Neighborhood

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and the Little Italy community is prepared to celebrate a night of love. Couples will feel treasured by a romantic date-night with authentic Italian dinners and desserts to live music that will make you swoon. Residents of Savina, Little Italy’s best luxury condos in Downtown San Diego, are only steps away from experiencing an enchanting night.

Begin the night by indulging in some of the most sought-after dishes in the nation. Couples can dine at Herb & Wood, named #1 Best Restaurant in Little Italy by USA Today. Celebrity Chef, Brian Malarkey, is celebrating Valentine’s Day with a 4-course dinner including Tuna Tartare, Oxtail Gnocchi and Pan Roasted Seabass.

Wine and dine at Born and Raised, San Diego’s hottest new restaurant located on India St., Valentine’s Day is the night to do so. The Jay Gatsby approved steakhouse was inspired by the mid-century and art deco eras and showcases a timeless and luxurious ambiance. Sit for a drink at the rooftop bar during a winter sunset for a match made in heaven.

Satisfy your sweet tooth at Salt & Straw, Little Italy’s newest ice cream parlor that does not serve your average scoop.  On Valentine’s Day, the shop will be stocked with its Chocolatier Series featuring flavors which incorporate chocolate from local San Diego chocolate artisans. On our must try list: Eclipse’s Cardamom Rose Chocolate and Nibble’s 85% Peruvian Chocolate Sorbet.

When dinner is finished but the night is still young, visit the Little Italy Food Hall for a limited edition “Love Elixir Cocktail” prepared at the central bar. The cocktail is mixed with gin, St. Germain, lemon, rose water, pomegranate and is topped with a rose petal. The bar is also offering day specials including two-for-one mimosas.

On your walk home, slow dance to romantic sounds of the past under the moonlight. Just Cousins will be performing from 6 to 9 p.m. at Piazza Basilone located outside the Little Italy Food Hall. Nestled between San Diego condos and restaurants, the newly constructed Piazza della Famiglia sets the perfect backdrop to end the special day.

Savina’s luxury condominiums in downtown San Diego make enjoying Little Italy simpler. The central location of the waterfront condos gives residents easy access to San Diego’s best restaurants and attractions, helping create a Valentine’s Day beyond compare.
