Our guide to Greenwich Village Food Tour
Find out what makes Greenwich Village a true foodie haven on this tour taking you to some of the best spots in town. Get a taste of authentic New York-style pizza, dig into creamy pasta dishes and indulge in some delicious gelato as you discover favorite local haunts and get a sense of the rich immigrant culture that shaped the area into what it is today.
Your exploration of Greenwich Village begins at one of the neighborhood's most iconic landmarks. Dive into the story of the area’s rich Italian heritage the best way possible – alongside some fried arancini from one of our favorite family-run eateries.
Next, it’s time to dig into the fascinating world of handmade pasta-making at our first stop. Run by the same family for over 100 years, you’ll try some of their delicious traditional cheese ravioli and learn more about their methods of preparation, the various types of pasta, and what makes theirs so unique. You’ll also get to see the traditional manual pasta-cutting machine which they’ve been using since the store opened in 1906!
Of course, by now it’s time for coffee! At the second stop of the day, you’ll step inside a family-run café, that imports high-quality Italian coffee beans. For the perfect pick-me-up, a rich espresso is in order.
If there’s one food New York is known for, it’s pizza. As you sink your teeth into a cheesy slice from one of the Village’s most iconic pizza joints, you’ll learn more about how pizza came to be valued far above any other fast food in New York. Afterward, it’s time to swing back to the spot where the arancini you tasted earlier was cooked. Run by the same family for generations, this has become one of the most popular spots for Italian specialties. It’s the perfect place to pick up some authentic charcuterie and cheeses to enjoy a sample of the area’s finest gourmet delicacies.
The next stop is a relatively new addition to the Greenwich Village food scene. Despite only opening in the 1990s, this restaurant has mastered the art of the Italian meatball. You’ll have the chance to try it for yourself, alongside an olive oil tasting led by your expert guide. Finally, it’s time for a sweet treat. With so many delicious options around, it would be a shame to try just one. That’s why you’ll get two! Begin with some freshly baked Italian pastries, then indulge in some gelato in a chic Italian-style ice cream shop.
