I have been on a couple of other food tours and this did not comparable favorably. It was light on food tasting and heavy on commentary. The guide did a good job with what he had to work with, so I give him high marks. I believe his name was Kyle.
We love this Little Italy guided tour - it has all the ingredients to become one of our most popular foodie experiences. You’ll join a passionate local guide for a walk around some of the area’s most distinctive and authentic eateries to sample flavours of the old country with a series of tastings equivalent to a 4-course meal! Every venue on the tour is at least 100 years old, and you’ll also see key landmarks that illuminate Little Italy’s heritage, from a bootlegging depot during Prohibition times to the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral where many high-profile Italian weddings and memorials have been held.
Stop by Parisi Bakery, a favourite of Frank Sinatra, for fresh-baked bread infused with prosciutto; Alleva Dairy, America's oldest cheese shop, where every day over 4000lbs of mozzarella and ricotta are used, and enjoy a slice of perfection at Lombardi’s, said to be the oldest pizzeria in the country. Also with this New York gift experience, you’ll see where hit movies including The Godfather, Mean Streets and Donnie Brasco were filmed, and learn stories of Italian immigration at the turn of the 20th century. This is a fantastic way to spend a few hours, and we think one of the best New York guided tours around.
