Pizza dough crackles in wood-fired ovens, freshly roasted espresso radiates alluring aromas, and red-checkered linens adorn tables on the terraces of sidewalk cafés. Let a local guide lead you to the best eats and treats that North Beach—San Francisco’s Little Italy—has to offer.

Follow the scent of baking bread as you traipse through the hilly streets of North Beach with your knowledgeable guide. Make your way between stops and learn about this neighborhood’s colorful past, from its Gold Rush days as the rowdy Barbary Coast to its transformation into SF’s Little Italy with the arrival of pesto-loving Ligurians and spaghetti-making Sicilians.

With such a fantastic wealth of eateries to explore, stops on this tour vary each day. The focus is on Italian, so you might start with a pasta dish, pick up antipasti at a neighborhood deli, or sample focaccia and pizza. See coffee being roasted, grab a scoop of creamy gelato, or bite into a rich chocolate or delicate, cream-filled cannoli. To end your tour on a historic note, you might stop for tiramisu at a bakery that’s been churning out this classic dessert since 1880, or detour to a Gold Rush-era saloon for a drink at the same bar that welcomed pirates and prospectors in the 1800s.
