Review

We had a wonderful time! The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to add a lot of color to the tour. The food was amazing! So many stop and savor moments, from foccacia to chocolate to olive oils, it was a wonderful and filling afternoon. A bonus, we got the opportunity to see some of the hidden gems of Little Italy, and go off the beaten path and find local treats.
