Dining Al Fresco in San Diego
Al Fresco
Dining al Fresco in Little Italy (Little Italy Association)

One of the most powerful tools in fighting the spread of Covid-19 is social distancing. Also it is believed that being outside is safe than being inside. Breifly sit down restaurants were permitted to serve diners indoors, but very soon afterwards a state-wide ban on indoor restaurant dining was instituted. To find our more about that, please visit What is still permitted is outdoor dining (with specified restrictions). Many restaurants have opened outdoor dining areas, some have done this in their parking lots and some areas have allowed such dining on sidewalks. We believe that social distancing and wearing masks in public are hugely important and if you do venture forth to dine outside you do so with as much caution as possible!
