My name is Robert Agrippino i was born and still live here in the North End of Boston( Little Italy) in 1958. We will feast on food culture and personal stories of this unique neighbourhood. My guest will experience all the changes that have taken place and the gentrification that started happening in the late 70s. I grew up taking my first job as a dishwasher in one of our local restaurants and then becoming a busboy a waiter and learned the restaurant business from a couple of Italian immigrants and going on to opening my own restaurants. I know all the best establishments and all of the shopkeepers which makes for an authentic experience. The shops we visit are all places that I myself and the locals eat in. There are NO tourist traps on this tour. We will eat like REAL ITALIANS and along the the tour we will meet REAL ITALIANS.

Hands down the best tour in Boston. So many unique stories Robert shared and his depth and knowledge about the North End was amazing. I remember joking with Robert asking him if he’s the mayor of little Italy because literally everyone knows Robert. Robert brought us to the little mom and pop shops that you might not find otherwise if you did any other tour just because of his life long roots of knowing the people in his community. The passion Robert conveys to his guest on the tour is very clear from the first few moments you spend with him. You will not be disappointed!

Robert is excellent! The food on the tour just scratches the surface on what all you get with the tour. Robert covered movie history, Italian market recommendations, architecture, real estate and history of living in Little Italy. In our three hours, Robert ran into 100 people yelling “hey Bobby!” And had a small chat with him and us. They told us their stores along with Robert. It was amazing. The food is superb and his recommendations give you plenty to do well after the tour is over. An unforgettable experience and one I highly recommend!

Bobby is awesome. He has unique insight because he grew up in Little Italy and has been there his whole life. He can tell you stories about all of the local families, talk about how the neighborhood has changed over the years and he even showed us a picture from his past with a view of what one of the streets that we went down looked like years ago. When you’re with Bobby you feel like you’re with a local celebrity as many locals say warm hellos to him wherever you go. He’s very friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful. My partner and I were the only ones on the tour due to COVID and he went to a couple of places not on the tour list because we hadn’t been, we’re interested and they came up in conversation. The food we got was excellent and because of his connections we didn’t have to wait in line even when places we went were busy. He brought personalized face masks, hand sanitizer and water bottles for us. Bobby goes out of his way to make your experience special. We ran into him again on the street on our last night there and he was just as warm and welcoming as when being paid to show us around. If we’re even in Boston again we’ll definitely look him up. We had a wonderful time. If you want an authentic local experience, with great food and a warm, knowledgeable, thoughtful host then you really cannot do better than Bobby’s tour.

Thank you so much for taking my family on a tour of North End! It was such an amazing experience and I would highly recommend this tour! Not only do you get a tour of Little Italy, but you also get a history tour too. All the restaurant/delis/bakeries were amazing and I definitely will return, especially for the brick oven pizza and cannoli!

Robert is exceptional! You can tell how passionate he is about the North End - it felt like we were walking around with the Mayor. He takes you inside to meet shop owners and you learn so much history of the North End. Highly recommend and a highlight of our entire trip! My boyfriend and I booked this for our anniversary weekend — we ended up being late and Robert took extra care of us and showed us the spots we missed. He goes above and beyond for his guests. Thank you Robert!
