Spend your day with me as I share my warm welcome and passion for Italian cooking.
I will take you to a very typical food market then to my beautiful house, a few steps from Piazza di Spagna in the same building as the movie Roman Holiday, where I'll teach you how to prepare the most delicious roman/Italian food. You'll enjoy the lunch you cooked in a friendly and comfortable environment. All wine, extra vergin olive oil, and many other of the ingredients I use are organic and come directly from my Umbrian country home.


We will prepare and then eat a selection of the following dishes:

Bruschetta with pomodoro
Bruschetta with various patès

Pasta Dishes - 3 of the following, depending on the market ingredients available and season
Cavatelli pasta with broccoli and sausage
Fettucini pasta with mushrooms

or others on request

Selected quality wines included (organic, home-produced)
Highest quality home-produced extra vergin olive oil is used throughout.


Via Margutta is a truly beautiful narrow street in the centre of Rome, near Piazza del Popolo, The street boasts the most pituresque buildings and courtyards and is home to numerous artists and art galleries. The film Roman Holiday was in part set here,
After the film Roman Holiday became popular, Via Margutta developed into an exclusive neighborhood, where various famous people lived, such as film director Federico Fellini. My home is in one of the most beatiful buildings of the street, with a large inside place and leafy terrace outside for when the weather is warmer.
