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.

Seattle's Little Italy

Like the colors of the Italian flag, Seattle's Little Italy features three stripes of Italian cuisine. At Al Boccalino, diners pull up to white linen tablecloths for classic cuisine made from local ingredients. It's also a great place to stop for l'aperitivo, where guests dine on all-you-can-eat olives, ciliegine mozzarella, caprese, and grilled vegetables. Cafe Bengodi, by contrast, specializes in lighter fare—the bouquet of pastas are offset by a selection of sandwiches, risottos, and pizza served on a shaded patio. And at Little Italy's newest eatery, Che Sara Sara, the chefs focus on the cuisine of the Puglia region. It's all a part of owner Luigi DeNunzio's lifelong dream of transporting the flavors of his homeland to the American West Coast.
