Get to know your fellow ARA members as we stroll through North Beach/Little Italy and enjoy the area's culinary delights and learn some of the area's history too! Our tour will take us to Cafe Roma where we'll see how coffee is roasted and taste the best cappuccino you've ever had (teas and Italian sodas are available for non-coffee drinkers).


Next, we'll enjoy focaccia sandwiches from Mario’s Bohemian Cigar Shop. Cigar shop, another name for cafe in Italy, has never sold cigars, just the best focaccia sandwiches in San Francisco!


Our tour continues at Acquolina where the high quality ingredients used results in bruschetta that is nothing short of amazing. You can't go to Little Italy without stopping for a sweet treat at Z. Cioccolato and at Stella Pastry, where the brick oven used for baking is nearly 100 years old.


We'll get to sample deli sandwiches at Molinari Delicatessen, a family owned business since 1896. Our final destination is Mona Lisa Restaurant where we'll enjoy incredible pizza made with their fresh tomato sauce and homemade mozzarella cheese.

The regular cost for this tour is $59 per person. ARA is offering it to our members for only $35 per per person! Prepayment is required at time of registration. Go to the website event calendar to sign up for this great event!
