The Family Dinner Table – Where memories are made

23 July, 2017

Dinnertime doesn’t only mean enjoying great food, but connection, meaningful conversation, laughter and creating fond memories for the family to look back on. It’s so easy to get distracted by the busyness of life, that sadly, a lot of families don’t even sit down to enjoy a meal together anymore.

There is nothing more important than connecting with the people closest to you. Gone are the days when everyone would sit down at the dinner table to share a meal together. Nowadays, you often see children hiding out in their rooms, glued to their phones, shutting themselves off from the very people whom they are loved by the most.

Family dinners strengthen the family dynamic.

There are many ways to spend quality time with the ones you love. Sharing regular meals with your loved ones is one of them. It is great to catch up and talk with each other. It helps create bonding.

Studies show eating together as a family leads to improved emotional health.

Research has found that eating regular meals with your family encourages healthy communication, we tend to be happier and less stressed, and real connections and feelings of closeness are created.

The Old School Little Italy Tour offers this very experience. Not only do you get to indulge in a little taste of Italy, but you are treated just like family. During the food tour, you get to experience five Little Italy restaurants and enjoy an authentic Italian meal, the way Nonna used to make. Share in love, laughter, and good eats.

What a ball! My colleagues and I took the Little Italy tour for our office party and a bit of team-building. We had so much fun. Our guide was amazing. We learned so much about pizza and Italian cuisine and Little Italy's influence in San Diego. We ate, we learned, we drank, and we had a ball! I would highly recommend taking a tour with Little Italy. Grazie mille!!! — Robin D. San Diego, CA

My work department did this tour as part of our holiday celebrations and had a great time! Our tour guide was very informative and energetic. We learned all about where pizza came from and each stop taught us something new and allowed us to try pizza from a different region. You will leave full and educated! —Sheila S. Boston, MA
