At Host's Location near to vatican city.
In a city whose cuisine thrives on guanciale and pecorino, being vegan can be a challenge. Most trattorie offer classic dishes like cacio e pepe and saltimbocca that are off-limits to vegans. So whether you’re already a vegan, thinking of becoming one, or just want to experience an evening of alternative eating, I will deliciously demonstrate that a satisfying meal doesn’t have to rely on meat or dairy. Dinners are held at my home near St. Peter's Basilica.
I live a short distance away from the Vatican City and St.Peter's, in a beautiful, quiet and cozy neighbourhood. The way to my apartment is filled with cobblestoned pathways and beautiful old houses. As it is also on a hill, you can catch a glimpse of the Roman skyline, over the Vatican City.
In the summer and when the weather is beautiful, we can have dinner in my well kept garden where you can see and smell the herbs I will use for your dishes and the lemon tree that I use for my homemade limoncello!
We had a wonderful evening dining in Allessandro's home. He prepared and thoughtful and delicious vegan menu for my daughter and I and even served his homemade limoncello after our lovely dessert. He provided many tips on food related topics as we ate and talked. His communication regarding plans and directions was excellent. I would highly recommend joining Allessandro for any one of his in home experiences. Thank you !!
My husband and I had a great time with Allesandro (Tony) in his home. His attention to detail was amazing. We had the pleasure to dine with another couple as well which made the experience even better. We loved all the foods he prepared and especially his home made lemoncello. Yum! Tony paired each plate with the perfect wine and provided us a story of the wine and the recipe itself. I truly enjoyed the entire thing and would do it again in a heartbeat.
We are always looking for ways to experience the place/ country as a local and cooking class combined with dinner in Alessandro house was a perfect choice. From day one - first email exchange - Alessandro shows he really cares about his guests and provide you with all the info you might need. Very patient and polite cooking teacher. Him and his girlfriend are very kind and interesting people and make you feel during the dinner like you are visiting your friends. I highly recommend the whole experience.
Myself and three friends had the pleasure of visiting Alessandro in his home for a great evening of food, wine and conversation The food was beautiful cooked, and we all enjoyed Alessandro explaining how the different courses were made and the ingredients contained The wines accompaning the food were all locally sourced and of great quality We were joined at dinner by two visitors from Israel who helped to make the nigh entertaining and informative We would highly recommend when in Rome to arrange a visit to Alessandro home We thoroughly enjoyed the experience
My husband and I had dinner with Alessandro and a wonderful guest from Holland. His home restaurant was a unique and delicious experience for us. Our food and wine was explained in great detail by our passionate host. We learned about Roman cooking, as well as having some laughs and great conversation about our different cultural traditions. I love being in the presence of someone passionate about what they do and we had that with Alessandro. The meal he made for us was fantastic. I'll be dreaming about the chicken in red wine sauce!
My cooking experience with Alessandro was amazing. Alessandro was such a warm, knowledgeable and generous host. I learnt so many invaluable tips, tricks and traditional methods of preparation from Alessandro. Alessandro is very skilful and passionate about using simple, fresh, seasonal ingredients to prepare amazingly flavoursome and nourishing dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the prepared meal with Alessandro and his partner Elena, who were able to give me an insight into what it was like living as an Italian. I can not recommend Alessandro as a cooking experience host or private chef enough! It has definitely been a highlight of my visit to Roma.
AMAZING! This was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We learned to make fresh Pasta that was so simple and so delicious. Alessandro is fantastic and the hospitality was outstanding. We had delicious wine and limoncello and great conversation. He gave us several recommendations for Rome and other areas of Italy, and everything we tried was great. We truly enjoyed our experience and wished we could have stayed longer in Rome to do his wine tasting tour. Highly Recommend. Thank you again so much Alessandro!
