I had a wonderful pintxos tour with Patrizia. She was quick to respond and even accommodated a solo tour. Patrizia is extremely knowledgeable about the culture of food in Bilbao. You can tell she has a true passion for eating and cooking. We stopped by eight pintxos bars and the main food market. Everything we ate was delicious and gave a good impression of Bilbao pintxos. I highly recommend anybody looking for a great food tour in Bilbao with Patrizia!

I don’t really want to give too much away about the tour but everyone visiting Bilbao should take one of these! Put it this way, when we revisit this beautiful city we’ll be booking another tour with Bilbao Food Tours!

A wise woman told us once that when you make a friend in Northern Spain you make a friend for life – we very much hope it’s true! 🙂

We loved our tour with Patrizia. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and charming. The tour is well organised with 8 stops for a variety of pinxtos. With her help we were able to taste pinxtos that we would not have been able to order ourselves. There was great variety between the more traditional and the more avant garde. The photos and notes that she sends you afterwards are a great service.

My name is Patrizia Vitelli and I am coming from a small region in my beloved Basque Country, where I grew up in a cooking obsessed family, and learned how to cook at an early age.

Food was (and still is) an important topic among us. My passion for food led me to host a culinary blog for the last six years. I am also an amateur cook and a tour guide.

I have spent some time living in China and India, where I loved to introduce the Basque cuisine to my foreign friends. Being a passionate traveller and a culinary enthusiast I would be happy to share my love for food and discoveries with you.
