About this event

Join this delightful ‘Best of San Francisco’ food tour leading you to discover and try local tastes in North Beach’s Little Italy. This friendly, small group tour walks the streets to learn about life in North Beach through its restaurants, cafes, murals and cultural artifacts.

Start by meeting your local foodie guide in front of Vesuvio, the oldest bar in San Francisco. It is located in Jack Kerouac Alley (that’s a story unto itself!). Learn the fascinating contributions that the Barbary Coast and the Beats made to the city’s unique cultural identity.

Take a moment to pause and savor espresso from Cafe Trieste, the spot that kicked of Italian-style coffee on the West Coast and the home adopted by poets, authors and cultural renegades for generations. Learn how early Italian immigrants shaped this iconic patch of San Francisco as you sample cheeses from the celebrated delicatessen Molinari’s.

How do you make a cannoli? Learn the answer watching the bakers at Cavali prepare a batch for you to enjoy. One more test for you sweet tooth happens at Z Chioccolato. Browse this charming shop and pick out a few treats for friends back home.

Your walking food tour finishes up on historic Washington Square a gathering spot for San Franciscans (and for Marilyn Monroe but more on that later!). As you sit, feast on award-winning pizza from Tony’s. No need to rush. Linger here until you’ve had your fill of this amazing neighborhood.
