New York City: Little Italy Italian Food Tasting Tour

1. New York City: Little Italy Italian Food Tasting Tour

Immerse yourself in the food culture of Little Italy on a 2-hour tasting tour, and visit 4 different venues in the famous New York neighborhood. Every venue you will visit is more than a century old, and the tastings will make up the equivalent of a 4-course lunch. Start at La Bella Ferrara, the delighting denizens of Little Italy since the late 1800s, and get some of its Italian Rainbow cookies. Then, visit the family-owned Alleva Dairy, where more than 4,000 pounds of fresh mozzarella prosciutto and rice balls you'll ever taste. Then, go to the oldest pizzeria in America and see a 106-year-old coal oven at Lombardi's Pizza. Along the way to Ferrara Bakery, your guide will point out movie locations from blockbuster films, such as “The Godfather,” “Donnie Brasco,” “Mean Streets,” and “Sex and the City”. Next, see the bootlegging depot from the days of Prohibition, and discover a square named after New York’s first Italian detective. Finally, peek inside St. Patrick's Cathedral to see where high-profile weddings and memorials take place before concluding your tour.

Tremendous - we had a blast! Our guide, Lionel, was a great host. A fountain of knowledge. It was a very warm Saturday afternoon, with a large group, and I brought my 8 year old son along. Lionel hung in there like a champ, remembered everyone’s name, kept everyone involved, and kept everyone fed.

We had a great tour with Vince. He was very informative. He knows so many of the businesses and their owners. In addition, he knew a lot about the neighborhood and buildings. We samples a variety of delicious foods. The pizza was fabulous! I would highly recommend this tour.

Lee was a great guide. He knew his information and was very personable. Loved that we got shoed off a corner in front of the restaurant, true NY experience. The pizza at the end was so delicious!

Our tour guide, Lyonel, was great. Has lots of information and great food choices. Went with our daughter and son in law and we all enjoyed it.

Knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make the tour interesting.
