I thought the tour was going to be a lot different to what it actually was!! But in saying that we had a good day,was just the two of us and the guide which made it a lot better. All the food was great!! And our guide was very knowledgeable about the city which was interesting.

This review is the subjective opinion of the person who shared it and not necessarily of Bucketlist City
What To Expect

North Beach is San Francisco’s Little Italy and has historically been home to a large Italian American population. Enjoy a walking food tour down the streets that are still home to many Italian restaurants today! This guided tour will include 5-6 food tasting locations in the historic North Beach neighborhood. All food tastings (enough for lunch) are included in the ticket price.

Examples of stops on the tour are (subject to change):

  • XOX Truffles – XOX has been named one of the Top Ten chocolate-makers in the United States by prestigious Chocolatier Magazine, and The Rosengarten Report! This cozy little shop is a great place for an afternoon pick-me-up. Enjoy truffles created by the talented Chocolate maker Jean-Marc Gorce.
  • Tony’s Coal Fired Pizza & Slice House – Home of the 11th time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani. Tony brings his passion and perfection to North Beach, sharing his award winning pizzas with us all.
  • The Italian Homemade Company– Italian Gourmet Street Food and Specialty Grocery, specializing in the Marche & Romagna regions.
  • Caffé Grecco-. Caffe Greco is recognized by many, as the most authentic Italian Café in the city serving the world famous Illy Caffe , award winning homemade tiramisu, cannoli, and gelato. Its acclaimed popularity and reputation was culminated in rave reviews by the New York Times, Gourmet Magazine, Food Arts, S.F. Chronicle, and Smithsonian Magazine.
  • A Cavalli Café– Just as a bar in Rome, the aroma of fresh, imported coffee from Italy fills the air. The sounds of spoken Italian can be heard over the music of Andrea Bocelli and other Italian artists, old photos of San Francisco’s Little Italy adorn the walls and usually a soccer game plays out on the TV in the background. Enjoy the best hand stuffed Cannoli in North Beach.
  • Located in the heart of North Beach, San Francisco, Mona Lisa serves authentic Italian cuisine. They have an extensive selection of homemade pasta, seafood, meat, and pizza. Walk and taste your way through North Beach, which was an actual beach, filled in with landfill around the late 19th century! Your tour awaits you and yours!
  • Visit Washington Park which has long been the heart of North Beach, home of Saint Peter and Paul which was seen in 1923’s film The Ten Commandments by Cecil D. DeMillie.
Be sure to come hungry!
