Bottega Americano is a very popular Italian restaurant, bar, and marketplace located in San Diego's East Village. This upscale restaurant-marketplace and bar started operation in 2014, and since then it has been offering the elegance of fine dining coupled with the convenience of a European style marketplace. Guests get to browse through the sensualist market, where they can find a well-curated selection of gifts, gourmet ingredients, and meals to take home.
The market also features organic produce, a selection of rare imported goods, and specialty produce from some of the finest local purveyors.
