Scott's Pizza Bus Tour is an absolute must for both visitors and locals. He changes the tasting locations each time to accommodate the group, so you never know what you're going to get. We actually had several people in our group who had taken the pizza bus tour 3-4 times before, and he took special care to ensure there were... More

This was just a great tour. I gave it to my husband as a gift, and I struck gold. Scott is unbelievable, witty, personably and so very smart, he knows everything about pizza making, sauces, varieties, and makes the day a blast, complete strangers come together for a fabulous experience. We are native New Yorkers and would go again to... More

We had a fantastic time on this tour! We have done a heap of different food, and pizza specific, tours in NYC, but Scott's was a standout! We started out in Little Italy at Lombardi's, and then spent the rest of our day travelling to different spots in Brooklyn. Scott was a fantastic guide, ridiculously entertaining and really knows his... More

I cannot say enough good things about this tour! It was incredible. Scott is a gifted man, his love of pizza and his ability to entertain a crowd were immediately evident and unwavering throughout our 4 hour excursion. Scott taught us so much about pizza, the temperature of the ovens, the different types of ovens, the myth of Queen Margherita...need... More

We love taking tours with experienced, local tour guides. Our Sunday Bus Tour with Scott was one of the best we have ever had! We hit the lottery when we realized we were fortunate enough to have THE Scott of Scott's Pizza Tours as our guide! He was young and saucy instead of being old and crusty. In addition, Scott's...

We were among the only locals on this tour, but we had a blast learning more about our city's signature food and the history surrounding it. Our guide was Joe, who is high-energy, genuinely passionate about and well-versed in the history of pizza, and gave us context about what neighborhoods we were walking through in light of the Italian communities,...

It was our 1st time taking a Pizza tour and Scott's in New York City is surely the place to start. Our guide was Scott himself who does know his Pizza! He helps you understand how it's made, the history of the New York Pizza, & so many interesting fun facts I couldn't have asked for more. It was a... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
