We are an inter-racial couple from two corners of the world. She is an actress/English teacher/yoga and belly dance enthusiast. He is a guitarist/music producer/wildlife photography enthusiast. We love being together outdoors in Nature, traveling, hiking, museum-hopping, sagra-sampling and whatnot, and being indoors in the kitchen delving into one of our biggest passions - cooking. We believe we were brought together by a mysterious force so that we could share our passion for food and cultures with others. We cook Italian, Asian and Mediterr-Asian, our own hybrid of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. We believe that cooking, like travelling, unravels one's imagination and the food we serve is 100% Caretto creativity da il cuore.

We had the best time with Nadia and Matteo! They were both very welcoming and so knowledgeable about food (as well as many of their other passions). Highly recommend to anyone travelling to Rome :)

We wish we had done this upon our Rome arrival..this was by far the highlight of an already amazing vacation. We cruised 10 days all over Europe and meeting and dining with Nadia and Matteo was the highlight! I would give this experience 10 stars if I could. The food was delicious, we laughed, we rolled pasta, we shrunk Atlantic distances and sealed the deal with flavorful tiramisu, perfect pasta and local limoncello. We will be sure to see our new friends when we return to Rome :)

It was an amazing experience with Matteo and Nadia. They were such a great hosts and amazing cooks. They made the entire process so simple, easy and enjoyable. They were extremely helpful and gave really good tips and advice. We had such a great time that we didn't even realize what time it was. Pasta and and desert were so delicious that we can't wait to try making them at home. It was an afternoon well spent!

We had an amazing experience. From the offset, the Carettos were so friendly & helpful by adapting their menu to suit us and they welcomed us into their house so warmly. The food they taught us to make was absolutely delicious and we especially valued all their advice about places to visit and particularly food places, markets & products to try, all of which we went to! Would highly recommend this is anyone travelling to Rome, incredible experience & so worth it!

Matteo and Nadia were great hosts and cooks! My 2 sons( 11 and 12 years old) and I had a wonderful time. Matteo shared few of his family secrets on how to make perfect ravioli and Tiramisu we made with Nadia was delicious. We then shared dinner together and had great conversations about travels, different cultures and music. Recommending it to anyone who wants some special memorable experience with the personal touch. Kids were very tired at the end of the day and Matteo and /Nadia gave us a ride to our hotel. Thanks!
