Little Italy Restaurants
Dine at Mr. Motto and Caffe Italia
As the only hotel located in the heart of San Diego’s Little Italy, La Pensione Hotel is the perfect gateway for savoring the splendid flavors and European-inspired exuberance of this hip, trendy neighborhood. Little Italy’s best cuisine - from mom ‘n pop pizza parlors and casual sidewalk cafés to romantic bistros and award-winning fine dining restaurants – is just a short stroll from our front door.
Located on the bottom floor of La Pensione Hotel, Caffe Italia is a one-of-a-kind Espresso bar and café serving the perfect blends of robust coffee, cappuccino and espresso made with Lavazza coffee beans imported from Italy. At lunchtime, they offer a made-to-order selection of salads, Italian panini sandwiches, and more.
