TOURS STOPS & DETAILS
The tour begins in New York and starts out with sites as seen in the opening credits, including the exit of the Lincoln Tunnel and the famous Manhattan skyline. As you arrive in Jersey, you’ll see more sites including The Muffler Man, Pizza Land, a featured Tudor house, and the ramp to the Pulaski Skyway as seen at the end of every episode.
The tour then hits some more recognizable places: Barone Sanitation, the Skyway Diner, Big Pussy’s auto body shop, and Satin Dolls, also known as the Bada Bing.
The tour visits major sites that were used in filming the show such as Cozzarelli’s; Party Box (now unoccupied), Car Wash, Searchlight Diner and St. Cecilia’s Church, all of which were locations for major scenes as seen in the series.
Get off the bus for a fun stop at Holsten’s (where the final scene of the last episode was shot) and enjoy complimentary onion rings. Sit in “Tony’s” booth with your family for a nostalgic photo to share with friends.
Another major location, Satriale’s Pork Store, was a fictional establishment that was housed in an empty warehouse next to the Irish American Club in Kearny. The set was dismantled after the filming of the series concluded, and the building was torn down to make way for condominiums, which never happened!
More filming locations include the Gold Driving Range, Harrison High School, Seabra’s Rodizio, the statue of Christopher Columbus, St. Cecilia’s, the Nuovo Vesuvio; and many, many more.
During the tour, you’ll get the chance to eat at Holsten’s Diner. If you’d rather venture on your own after the tour, grab a bite to eat in the great Manhattan neighborhood of Little Italy.
Just follow the red, white, and green parking meters along Mulberry Street (between Grand and Canal streets) and you will find more Italian eateries than you could ever hope to visit in a single trip, like Amici II, Café Roma, Casa Bella, Lombardi’s, Fratelli, Caffe Sorrento, Il Palazzo, and more.
In the late 1800s, an influx of Italian immigrants created a Little Italy that wasn’t so little. Now, it is a bit smaller, with only a few thousand Italian-Americans calling Little Italy their home. However, the neighborhood has never lost its charm.
Stop by Umberto’s Clam House, or Il Cortile to have a delicious lunch or dinner. Try La Mela for family-style Italian or Grotta Azzura for upscale Italian. Skip dessert and grab some great cannolis over at Ferrara Bakery and Café, or enjoy a glass of wine and tiramisu at one of the many outdoor cafes.
