La Villa {Little Italy}


Last Sunday was the Mission Federal ArtWalk in Little Italy. Every year my dad is there with all of his amazing Plen Air paintings on display. If you haven’t had a chance to check out his art, please do so here.

We took the Trolley down there to check out the scene and say hi to my dad. {but really we went for the food, shh!} If you haven’t been to Little Italy in San Diego, the main street is lined with amazing restaurants. If you are part of our family you will know that  decisions don’t come easily. So when Shane spotted a place we hadn’t been to, he made an executive decision, that’s where we would be eating lunch. We were the first ones there but the place was packed when we left.

La Villa Restaurant

We ordered a few different wood-fired pizzas, a salad and a sandwich. Everyone was very pleased with what they had. I think it was some the best pizza I have had outside of Europe, delish.

Caprese Sandwich
Chino Farms Salad
Margherita Pizza with Prosciutto
Spicy Calabrese with broccolini, goat cheese, ramps and chili’s
Margherita Pizza with Burrata

The Burrata on my pizza was the richest, creamiest, most amazing cheese. I tried to find some at a market down there without luck. Once I do find some I am going to recreate this pizza.

Kaili approves with our choice of restaurant

The Little Italy ArtWalk happens every year on the last weekend of April, aka Kaili’s birthday weekend! So plan ahead and take at trip to Itlay without leaving the country. Stop by Steve Kell’s booth to say Hi, then head over to La Villa for a lunch. { get the Margherita pizza with Burrata! }
