Close your eyes and imagine strolling down quaint and narrow streets while enjoying colorful sights, tantalizing aromas, and chaotic sounds as you get an ‘insider’s view’ of these ethnic communities, alive with colorful immigrant history and undiscovered “hidden gems”.

The secret of a cuisine is the high quality of ingredients, a sense of regional tradition and an understanding of the culture. For an outsider, finding the finest is not always easy. The marketplace has become overrun with fraudulent foods and these imposters have found their way into our kitchens. We’ll make sure you are lining your pantry with authentic products that are both delicious and good for you. Join us on a culinary walking tour of Boston’s “Little Italy” (North End) and let us be your passport to unlocking the secrets of the world’s healthiest cuisine.


Just a quick update on our Covid19 protocol. Yes, we are taking this seriously. With the uptake on cases in Massachusetts, as a precautionary health measure, we are continuing to be temporarily closed. I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding. There’s nothing I would like more right now than to be sharing my passion for my neighborhood and the Italian food culture. Stay safe and healthy. We will get through this together.

Gift cards will continue to be available for redemption at a later date.
