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

I've been hearing about Scott's tours for so long, and it was worth the hype. We had Scott himself, and he was super fun and engaging. Our tour was a mix of couples, families, young and old, and he did an awesome job with everyone. I took my colleague on the Greenwich tour as a team bonding thing, and she... More

Well where do I begin....I took my daughter for her birthday because she loves pizza. We were not disappointed the tour was great and Scott the tour guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He gave us the history surrounding pizza and it was awesome. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone living in nyc or just visiting.

Scott is a great person to find out everything you wanted to know about Pizza and how New York City had an influence on Pizza. He is very knowledgeable and super enthusiastic. From the cheese they use, to the sauce, to even what flour is used. I suggest taking the walking tour first. You will do some walking and subway... More

My family had the best time! Scott's honest and sincere enthusiasm were contagious and we now have a new appreciation for ALL THINGS PIZZA. My daughter now has pizza sunglasses, pizza shoes, and even asked me to make her "a slice" for an outside concert she attended recently. Do this tour!

My wife and I attended one of the tours and could not have been happier with our experience. The guide was knowledgeable and fun. He gave us a wonderful history of Lombardi's while we prepared to enter and filled each walk between locations with detailed and interesting information about the neighborhoods and the history of pizza in New York. We... 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.
