The Market by Buon Appetito 



1605 India St
(between Cedar St & Date St)
San Diego, CA 92101
Neighborhood: Little Italy
Ph (619) 237-1335

La Famiglia!

We feature local San Diego artists on a bi-monthly basis.
Click here for the current artist and artist’s reception.

Buon Appetito, inspired by the owners of Trattoria I Trulli in Encinitas and Arrivederci in Hillcrest, combines a dash of nouvelle and a splash of sophistication to bring forth a cozy San Francisco-style eatery in the heart of Little Italy, San Diego.

This little trattoria stands out by encompassing food and wine and showcasing art. This is a reminder of what the true history of Italy is all about: Food – wine – art. There is nowhere in Italy that you can go and not be affected by the art, sculptures and fountains. That is the utter beauty and essence of Italy.

That is why we have this restaurant. To remember who we are. And that is why we come together in celebration of food, wine and art.
