Meet The Founder

Pete Manzo

I started EAT Saint Louis Food Tours because of my deep love for all foods…you could say I was “born” into it. My mom and dad started both a specialty Italian & Greek grocery store and food distribution company as part of their American Dream when they immigrated from Sicily, Italy in 1955 and I grew up surrounded by food. I am a dual citizen and love to travel. As momentos of my travels, I usually return home with three things: food items, photos of food experiences and… extra weight.
