We learned about the history of pizza from ancient times and sampled a series of foods related to the discussion, many totally new to me, an... More

Anthony knows everyone (and has a story to share about all of them...) and you quickly become family in the neighborhood. The food is spectacular and sample sizes lead to a very satisfying... More

My wife and I really enjoyed Anthonys Old School Food Tour of Little Italy in San Diego. There was a generous supply "real" Italian food. Equally important and enjoyable was Anthonys narrative of the history of Little Italy.

We took the Old School Little Italy Food Tour, guided by Anthony, who made us feel as welcome as family. He took us to five restaurants, where we were treated like special guests and where we...

Anthony was such a great tour guide for our group! First of all, his energy and charisma are infectious, so you know you'll have a good time immediately. Then he feeds you! Oh mamma mia, that was some great Italian food! I've eaten what I thought was good Italian, but the dishes we tried on this tour I had never... More

Thanks Anthony for the fabulous tour. We enjoyed every moment of the stories of Little Italy of San Diego. We appreciate the immigrant history of your area and hope it remains the vibrant close community that it is. We enjoyed a delicious pasta dinner at Filippo's in your recommendation. This tour is a must-do in San Diego.

Anthony made our Meet Up groups birthday tour a real treat. Even sang in Italian! He knows everybody, has complete knowledge of the area, and tells his tales with great enthusiasm. I am a local and this was my third time taking a tour by Anthony. I learn something interesting and new every time.
