14 May, 2017

1. You Get to Experience a Week’s Worth of Restaurants in One Evening

The Little Italy Food Tour is like no other. With every food tour you’ll visit five Little Italy restaurants and get a taste of great food, good wine, and an Italian aperitivo cocktail. The beauty about our food tour is that you will be getting an authentic experience with homestyle, rustic Italian food, not the Americanized stuff.

2. You’re Treated Like Family

We’re not just any old food tour. We provide a unique and welcoming experience to all of our guests. Our General Manager, Anthony Davi, treats everyone like family. He personally entertains and educates you on the historic San Diego neighborhood. Not only does he share excellent food choices from the menus, but the stories he tells will remind you of being at a family dinner.

3. It’s Fun and You’ll Make New Friends

If anyone knows how to enjoy great food and have a great time doing it, it’s Italians. Enjoy authentic Italian food with San Diego locals who love REAL food. While Little Italy is now an eclectic mix, about a third of the property is still owned by  Italian families. Capture the essence of Little Italy through captivating stories and an amazing cultural experience.

4. You Gain Insider Information on What’s Happening in San Diego.

Be in the know of all things San Diego. From upcoming events to local news, you will get the inside scoop from Little Italy Tours. Our General Manager, Anthony Davi is an excellent host and storyteller.

“What a great way to get to know a city–whether you’re new in town or you’ve lived there your whole life.  We can’t wait to come back and eat that well again!” – J.C.

“We saw Little Italy in a whole new light.  Anthony is personable, knowledgeable and has such great stories to share. The pizza was the best we have ever had, and Anthony was an outstanding host. He took care of all the details to ensure we were comfortable and had all the food and drinks we wanted. We highly recommend this tour.” – N.R.

“Yesterday’s tour was fantastic! Anthony was an overall wonderful guide and individual. Both being Italian ourselves, his warmth and dynamic personality immediately felt familiar. Beyond his warm welcome at the cafe where he busied himself to make sure to serve all with a breakfast before heading out, he was an informative guide to the history and life of this cultural neighborhood that has gained recognition and recently voted as the nation’s current best Little Italy!” –
