Ciao! My name is Jennifer! I'm an Italian from and living in Rome. I offer exclusive personalized food tours in Rome for small groups (max 8 people).
My Food Tour brings you to one of the most traditional areas of Rome: Trastevere. By walking and eating through this quarter, you will feel what it is to be a Roman. This is the perfect place to taste the real Roman cuisine and to discover the spots frequented by locals.
I will take you to a mix of Rome’s most famous food stops and tiny, family-run Gems, where you’ll get to meet the passionate people who are dedicated to this city's cuisine and traditions. We will talk ingredients, recipes and sample delicious food as we go.
I will show you that Italian cuisine is more than just pizza and pasta, there is so much variation and regional differences! I will try to give you an overview of the Roman cuisine and you will learn the 'do' and 'don'ts' of Eating in Italy. Everything you will taste is made with organic and locally sourced ingredients.
* If you have any special requests over and above what we will be seeing, I'll be happy to personalize your tour for you!
The popular Trastevere district is a postcard neighborhood of narrow, cobblestone streets with medieval buildings all weaving in and out of each other, fantastic restaurants, and overflowing bars. Here you will meet people full of character, living life to their fullest with traditional Italian food and loads of flavor!
This was an amazing experience (one of the main highlights of our entire Italy trip) and I suggest it to anyone that is travelling to Rome! Our guide, Nicole, was so passionate about the food, history and culture in Rome. It was infectious! She was extremely knowledgeable and provided the history of a couple different places that we passed while walking. She was also very personable and shared her personal life experiences while living in Rome. It was like spending the afternoon with an old friend! This is a must-do activity!
Andrea was simply amazing. His openness, love for food, and attention to detail was contagious. He clearly is not faking it, his knowledge and love for the art of food making was clear and illuminating. My wife and I went on the food tour of trastavere and testachio with 'the eating Italy' food tours and found there service to be more complete and developed. Also, both times we left their tours, we both were very full and not hungry. The portions on your tour were about half of what we had in the other tour. Because of that, I felt that the value was not as good. However, Andrea was much better than the guides on the other tour, who seemed to just have a packaged presentation. I hope this feedback helps.
My husband and I toured the Trastevere area of Rome with Jennifer who grew up outside of Rome and is very knowledgeable about typical Roman and local Italian cuisine. This tour was the highlight of our trip and we highly recommend taking it! Best to take it near the beginning of your trip because Jennifer will leave you with a list of best places to get different types of food. There are 2 other people who share the business with Jennifer who also do this food tour. We took the night tour and it was such a magical evening. Go ahead and book this tour. You will be so glad you did!!!!
We were part of a small group who did a tour of the Trastevere area with Jennifer. It was perfect, lots of local products and interesting insights into the food of Rome! Definitely a must do on your arrival in Rome as it will really help you enjoy the rest of your stay if you know more about where and what to eat! There were several stops where we sampled pizza by the slice, hams and cheeses, artisanal cookies, olive oils and fried artichokes! Perfect for our first night in Rome!
My family and I had an awesome time on this tour. We got to try the best food in Rome and explore the city. Jennifer was amazing and so knowledgable. Definitely do on you're first or second day in Rome so you know where to eat for the remainder of your stay.
Our guide, Jennifer, was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the local food in the Travestere region. We went to a cheese shop, a pizza shop, a meat shop, a gelateria and a bakery. The food was great and it was nice learning about the culture and history of Roman cuisine. Would highly recommend to anyone who would like a local food experience!
