History, family and the best food in Bronx little italy

5 Star Rated on TripAdvisor, Google, Facebook and Airbnb Experiences

Highly lauded, our food tours of Little Italy have been featured on CNN Travel, profiled in the Los Angeles Times, the Sunday Times London and on the cover of The New Yorker magazine. Our food tour company grew from our family butcher shop which has been on Arthur Avenue since 1918. We weave together delicious food, history and introductions to the shopkeepers on every one of our tours.

Choose either the classic Daily Shopping & Tasting Tour ($75) or satisfy big appetites with the Pizza Pasta & Parm Tour of Arthur Avenue ($95).

We’ve been here for 101 years

In 1918 my great-grandparents Albino and Grazia, immigrants from Naples, opened their shop on Arthur Avenue. A century later, their store is still here and our family business has expanded to introduce serious food lovers to our Italian village in the Bronx.
