Postino WineCafé Opens Two San Diego Locations This Spring

Postino, the all-day restaurant and wine café known for its cult-like following, welcoming hospitality, and inspired spaces—is making its anticipated entry into San Diego with the opening of two locations this Spring, one in the city’s lively Little Italy neighborhood and another in Del Mar’s One Paseo urban village.

Postino has become synonymous with serving as the perfect date night spot, host for your everyday happy hour, and gathering space for friends and family to catch up over great food and drink.

Expanding the Postino WineCafé Experience to San Diego

Centered around Postino’s warm, come-as-you-are culture and eclectic design, Postino Little Italy will land on the corner of Kettner Ave and Ivy Street, across from Chef Brian Malarkey’s Herb & Wood.

It will be within Kilroy Realty’s LEED-certified 2100 Kettner, a 2,652-square-foot space that includes a spacious outdoor patio along the district’s buzzy main thoroughfare.

Postino Del Mar is slated to open within the all-outdoor One Paseo in a 2,426-square-foot space at 3745 Paseo Place, Suite 800.

The restaurant, which includes a spacious outdoor patio, is situated directly across from the center’s “Fire Pit” lounge area, near Parakeet Coffee and North Italia.

Postino is excited to introduce two new neighborhood hangouts that embody their renegade ethos of ‘Drinking Wine At Lunch Is Not a Crime.’


Offering an ever-changing selection of boutique wines and craft brews paired with a decked-out menu of bruschetta, panini, salads, and crave-worthy charcuterie boards and shareables, the Postino Team is dreaming up one-of-a-kind kicked-back spaces served with a sophisticated twist.

Postino WineCafé draws its name from the Italian word for postman—an homage to the former 1940s post office where the first Postino was born over 20 years ago—but each location is unique to the neighborhood and community in which it lives.

Unique Blend of Culture and Community

Accordingly, the move to sunny San Diego started with discovering the perfect vibrant, pedestrian-friendly communities in America’s Finest City.

“Feeling a connection and alignment with a community is what drives us to open our doors and a new location,” said Postino Co-Founder and CEO Lauren Bailey.

“Honestly, it comes down to a feeling in our gut that this is our next home, and the stars aligned with these two perfect locations at just the right time.”

“There is so much to love about San Diego, and we’ve dreamed up these spaces to be an exciting and intimate gathering place for the community.”

Other Postino hallmarks include sophisticated mid-century modern furniture sourced from local vintage shops, off-beat found objects and showstopping art installations, rollup garage doors, custom walnut wine walls, and playlists that keep the good times rolling.

Plus, what makes Postino special is their simple yet powerful mission to “Make People Feel Good.”

See you there!

Postino WineCafé will be located at 2100 Kettner in Little Italy and 3745 Paseo Place, Suite 800, in Del Mar’s One Paseo lifestyle center.

Opening timelines and location-specific details will follow soon, but in the meantime, more information can be found here.

See you there, San Diego!
