Favorite Restaurants Near Pulse San Diego
barleymash – yep, with a lower case “b” – barleymash was voted one of the best restaurants in 2023. The fun, high-energy eatery with a warm modernist design is so popular you’ll likely find a line to get in. The food and service are great and the vibe is like no other.
Rustic Root – great rooftop views and Southern comfort food makes this a popular eatery, even for the locals.
Civico 1845 is our favorite Italian restaurant in Little Italy. The owner/brothers hail from Calabria, Italy and the menu offers traditional Italian with a modern twist using only locally-sourced ingredients. The food and setting are both impressive.
Though there are more classy, pricey Little Italy restaurants, Mona Lisa has roots stretching back to 1956. The restaurant serves a wide selection of pizzas, pastas and salads, but the old-school deli is where we buy our authentic Italian ingredients like fresh bread, olive oil, mozzarella, and other imported edibles.
