ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

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.

ABOUT THEMENU

Appetizer: Bruschetta with fresh tomatoes
First Course: Seasonal risotto - depending on the time of year, your risotto could have artichokes, porcini mushrooms, asparagus...
Main Course: Soup of pulses
Sides: Coleslaw with tomatoes and carrots or fennel salad with orange and olives
Dessert: Tony's vegan muffins or vegan tart with jam

ABOUT THELOCATION

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!

What a delightful time my family spent with Alessandro and Elena on Christmas Eve. Our party of 16 was treated to a delicious meal and true Italian hospitality. Overall, most of the group said that dinner was the highlight of the vacation.

Alessandro was a wonderful host! We had an adventure navigating the little curvy streets to get to his cozy home. Our group of 8 dined with 3 other guests, who were lovely. Alessandro fully explained the menu he would prepare and his passion for local cuisine was apparent. We had three courses plus some holiday cakes (pannetonne) and chocolate for dessert. The main course was an orange chicken with fennel/Olive/orange salad. It was spectacular. With dinner, we had local red and white wine. After dessert, Alessandro served his homemade limencello. It was divine! I highly recommend dinner with Alessandro if you are looking for an authentic Roman experience. We hope to visit again!

Don't miss a delightful evening in Rome with Chef and Sommelier Tony and his marvelous food. It was so enjoyable having fresh food with healthy preparations that tasted so decadent. What a beautiful patio setting on a beautiful October evening and fun to share it with new friends from Chicago. Thanks so much for making our experience in Rome special.

Allesandro was very friendly and informative. He ensured we could easily locate his apartment. We enjoyed eating outside in the garden. I especially enjoyed the wonderful Pasta anchovy primi course he made. It was so subtly flavored and the herbs were his own organic home grown. The wine pairing with dinner was perfect. We got an education about the wines and foods and what is typical in Rome. This was a unique experience.

We absolutely loved the hospitality and delicious, authentic Roman feast prepared by Alessandro. The private dining experience provided by AlessNdro and his wonderful wife was very intimate and informative for first timers to Rome. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to indulge in local, authentic Roman food and to attain first hand knowledge of Italy, the culture and local experience.
