Full description
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 Parisi Bakery, loved by Frank Sinatra for its prosciutto-infused bread. Then, visit the family-owned Alleva Dairy, where more than 4,000 pounds of fresh mozzarella and ricotta are whipped up each week at America’s oldest cheese shop.

Go to the oldest pizzeria in America at Lombardi's Pizza, and take a peek at their 106-year-old coal oven. Skip the lines (among New York’s longest since 1892) at 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” along the way.

See the bootlegging depot from the days of Prohibition, discover a square named after New York’s first Italian detective, and peek inside St. Patrick's Cathedral to see where high profile weddings and memorials take place.

Hear stories behind the historic landmarks as you stroll, and learn more about the immigrant experience in turn of the 20th-century New York.
