Overview
Tours resume September 22,2020..I'm a Line of Duty Retired NYPD Detective and lifetime resident of Little Italy. I bring you to places tour companies don't even know exist. The stories we discuss are all first-hand experiences- no script! From crime families and "red sauce" restaurants to some of the best cannoli on this side of the Atlantic, New York City's Little Italy is a neighborhood not to be missed. Get more out of your Little Italy experience with this 3- and a half hour walking tour. Uncover the mafia-related history of the neighborhood, hear a few true crime stories, and enjoy a dinner of food tastings—from handmade cheese to fresh baked pizza, eggplant parmigiana that will make momma jealous or spaghetti and meatball depending on tour/menu —all included. Experience the culture of Little Italy on this foodie-friendly guided tour. Visit the Lower East Side and Little Italy, and see where mobsters hung out and ran their elusive business.

This was my first food tour with my boyfriend and it was an amazing experience. We tried the best salami, eggplant Parmesan, and best of all the best pizza! Ending with a delish cannoli I would give this tour a 10/10 and would recommend to anyone traveling to NYC!!!!

Awesome tour, tons of food...don't eat before you go! Great stories and Dennis is a great host. This is not a tour where you get a sample of things...this is full slices of pizza and full plates of eggplant parmesan. And the cannoli at the end tops it all off.

As a mafioso geek, I absolutely loved this tour and my only regret is that I hadn't done this years ago! Not only is Dennis a great human, he knows NYC as he grew up in the same neighborhood of some very bigtime people and remains friends to this day. Fantastic stories, and
