So we did this as a birthday activity for my son who turned 18. Mike was our guide, and he was terrific--knowledgeable, funny, always had answers to our questions, and overall very engaging. We went to the original pizzeria in the US, learned about how pizza got started and how it became popular, how different kinds of pizza are made... More

This is not our first NYC pizza tour. Scott is a pleasant and very nice young man. He explains everything and anything you need to know about pizza. From the water to the flour used. He provided everyone with a little notebook and fun little "toys". What I really liked about him was how he would help the pizza shops... More

Went with grandparents, 15 year old and 10 year old. Everyone loved it, very information, excellent pizza. Our tour guide MIke was very friendly, and you can tell he loved his job.

We did the Original Crosstown Pizza Walk. Thankfully, no town-crossing was necessary: our tour was confined to Nolita, where our guide, Mike, took us to Lombardi's, Rubirosa, and Prince Street Pizza for three very different slices. Along the way, he supplied us with interesting pizza history facts (and some pizza science, too), and after each stop the group shared tasting... More

At the risk of sounding "cheesy," our guide Emily was a bright slice of NY life, providing us with the rich flavor of pizza's history, rivalries and ingredients. Fun for native "nuyawka" or tourist. Bring your appetite, interests and a comfy pair of shoes.

Lombardi's, Fiore's and Joe's were vintage New York pizza, and Emily was a stellar guide! Even on a hot hot day we had a great time and learned loads about the history pizza. Know the difference between mozzarella cheeses and oven-types? Go find out!

We tasted in 4 pizza places and each time our guide explained why this place, made sure we each had our slice and finally was lots of fun with interesting stories about growing up with pizza

Scott is obsessed with pizza and that enthusiasm shines through. In fact he knows more about pizza than is probably safe for one man to do. Passing that knowledge on is a self preservation mechanism like a pressure release valve. The format of the tour works well - combining a stop in 4 pizza restaurants around New York/ Brooklyn with...

Alexis was our terrific guide for three pizza places, clocking in at appx 3 hours. Alexis was funny, gregarious, and possessed an expert-level knowledge of both the pizza and the neighborhood. I'd never been to Brooklyn before, but have visited Manhattan a half dozen times. It was refreshing to take the subway to a new area, have a local walk... More

Alexis was our fantastic tour guide. We did the crosstown walking tour. 3 pizza joints in 3 hours. Lombardi's was my favorite, with delicious Napoli style pizza. I thought I knew a lot about pizza already, but Alexis entertained us with pizza history and science--and fascinating Little Italy history as well. If you love pizza, take this tour. If you... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
