Our day with Francesca and Ryan was one to remember! Both dishes we made were so simple yet delicious. Our favourite was the cacio e Pepe.. we still think about it to this day and can’t wait to make it back home for our families! Even the side dishes were amazing. Ryan and Francesca were awesome, we had great chats over lunch looking over the colosseum and hanging out with their gorgeous dog :) A valuable experience we won’t forget and so different from a lot of other touristy type experiences. So would highly recommend!!

We had an incredible dinner with Francesca and Ryan! We had the most delicious « Roman » dinner and learned so much about Italian food and culture. All the dishes were extraordinary! Both are great hosts, very nice and welcoming. It was the highlight of our trip! And they have a very cute dog (which is always a plus).

Francesca and Ryan provided a truly spectacular dining experience! My friends and I were in Rome to celebrate my 50th birthday, and I wanted a memorable experience to commemorate my milestone. Francesca and Ryan did not disappoint! The food was delectable, the conversation delightful, and the view was magnificent! I have wonderful memories for my 50th birthday celebration! I have told everyone I know how fantastic our evening was! Cannot thank you enough.

My BonAppetour experience with Ryan was an absolute highlight of my Italy trip and I would HIGHLY recommend to others! The location of their apartment (right across from the colosseum) is incredible and their rooftop patio makes for some incredible photos. The food definitely met and exceeded my expectations, especially the cacio e pepe pasta that was hands down the best pasta dish I had in Italy! Not only were all 5 courses absolutely delicious, but I loved learning about the ingredients and cooking techniques from Ryan. His passion for food was contagious and he was so friendly and personable that it made the dinner feel like we were eating with an old friend! My only regret was not booking this experience earlier on in our trip as it would have been great to know all of his insider info about eating plant-based in Italy to guide our food choices along the trip.

Francesca and Ryan gave us a fantastic experience and I would 100% recommend it! Their home is a lovely place to spend an evening - clean, welcoming, amazing decor and unbelievable views of the Colosseum. The food was TO DIE FOR and easy to recreate - they sent us simple recipes after the class which we will use again and again! It turned out to be fantastic sharing the class with other fellow travellers, an unexpected opportunity to talk with people from around the world, and we felt really connected by the end of the evening. The best part was Francesca and Ryan's knowledge of Italian food, their explanation about the different regions, local dishes and ingredients, and where to buy things. We did the class near the start of our trip, so for the rest of our time in Italy we had a greater appreciation for the different names and variations of fresh produce and dishes by region, knew better what to expect as we travelled around and had fun relating our food experiences to what Francesca and Ryan had taught us! Francesca and Ryan not only welcomed us into their home, taught us a lot of new things and served us an incredible meal, they inspired us with their lives. They showed us it's possible to move to a new country, pursue a dream and build a life around your passions. We will always remember them and the night we spent at their apartment. One of our favourite experiences in Italy.
