Chefs and experts on Italian cuisine lead a walking tour that visit four restaurants in the Pioneer Square neighborhood. Tours start at Il Chiosco for housemade Roman meatballs and a bubbly glass of proseco before moving on to Cafe Bengodi. There, chefs share family secrets for making pizza dough as well as a complimentary slice and a cold Italian beer. At Al Boccalino, tourgoers receive a glass of sangiovese to sip and a recipe to study while watching pasta made by hand in the kitchen. The journey ends with a short walk to Caffè Umbria for a dessert of affogato: creamy gelato with a shot of espresso poured over it. Altogether, the tours last about an hour and 15 minutes and can be scheduled any day of the week.

Cafe Bengodi

A sidewalk patio with shaded seating flanks Cafe Bengodi's corner façade, appealing to passersby with promises of authentic Italian cuisine and al fresco dining. Chefs deliver on this promise by doling out antipasti rich with cheeses and salamis, then cooking mounds of homemade pastas and fresh Neapolitan pizzas. Espresso, beer, and wine accent the meal and allow patrons to propose toasts as a subtle way to drop a hint that they need a new toaster.

The Gist

What some people are buzzing about:
