Live Music and Art at Puerto La Boca in Little Italy, San Diego

Going out to eat is not all about the food. While delicious food can make or break a meal, part of enjoying a delightful evening at a restaurant is about the ambience. You eat most of your meals in the familiarity of your home or office, and a night out allows you to enjoy a new and exciting atmosphere.

A variety of different factors can create an enticing ambience, from decor to the location, but one of the best ways is with live music and art. At Puerto La Boca, we feature a vibrant environment by featuring live music and amazing artwork at our Little Italy location.

TiTio - Artist at Puerto La Boca

Sebastian Reynal O’Connor, known as TiTio, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Coming from a family of artists, his passion for art was always inside his heart. His mother Raquel was the first inspiration that brought art to TiTio’s life. While growing up, he spent long hours in his mother’s studio admiring her paintings and sculptures. When he was in his early 20s, he took art classes at the School of Art Malena Davel, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In 2002, TiTio decided to move to the United States and once he was established in San Diego, he took classes at the Art Academy of San Diego. At the beginning, he was primarily interested in sculpture until he met his teacher Connie Athens, who introduced him into painting. Since then, he paints in oil, acrylics and other media. Today, TiTio devotes most of his time to painting, working with great enthusiasm and discipline in his studio.
