There is not really a "little Italy" in San Antonio, but there are a number of Italian and Italian-American organizations. See this thread: Some Italian here?

San Antonio has a very small Little Italy. The New Orleans area has the largest Italian population in the South. I wish they had some excellent mom and pop restaurant in SA. Piccolo comes to mind. All others are either chain restaurant or high dollar

There's a restaurant downtown that serves pretty good Italian food. I went there for the first time last Thursday for lunch and had a tasty calzone...

New Orleans? Interesting. I lived there for awhile and Nola didn't seem to have a lot of Italians. I never realized that there were so few Italians in the South.

Little Italy, the restaurant at Blanco/West-ish (about a half-block off Blanco at Afterglow) has nice Italian food. Their cheese pizza makes me happy! It's usually packed at dinner, but worth the wait.

As far as a "little Italy" neighborhood, you're outta luck.

there is the Italian Catholic Church, San Franchisco de Paulo, downtown. It's off of Martin at Santa Rosa. Lots of Italians, and others, there for Mass on Sunday at 10 AM.

They also have a spaghetti supper at least once per year - well worth the donation! YUM!

But no - no Little Italy, and to be honest, the only "mom and pop" style Italian restaurant that I've found here is Piccolo on Evers. The rest, as others have mentioned, are all either chains or expensive.

Capparelli's is fairly inexpensive, and honestly, Little Italy is not what I would call expensive. Both are good and satisfying.
