ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Are you looking for restaurants in Rome? How about going for a meal while meeting locals in Rome? Join me for either lunch or dinner in Rome, near Vatican City, and experience a variety of delicious authentic Italian dishes.

Being a professional Chef and a Sommelier, you can expect to have a wonderful 5 course meal, of course with the best wines chosen by me, and perhaps some home-made limoncello! Join me and my girlfriend - we are both Romans and we like cooking, wine, films and rugby. During our meal together, you can be sure to have a good, relaxing time, full of pleasant conversations. We like to talk about various subjects including food, films and readings. My girlfriend is in fact a writer and a film critic!
Besides cooking the best Italian dishes, we love meeting new people from around the world!

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!

We had a really lovely dining experience with Tony and Elena, He clearly loves sharing his passion for the food he prepares, explaining each course and matching the wine to it perfectly. Tony even had something prepared for our young son which was not on our menu. We would highly recommend this experience and hopefully will be back one day to spend another evening with Tony. Not forgetting his wonderful home made Limoncello made from a tree in his garden. Thank you Tony and Elena

Tony is a warm and welcoming host, and his love of Roman home cooking is delightful. As a first-night experience for our arrival in Rome, it was perfect. We loved sharing our table with people from a variety of places. Best moment: When Tony serves you limoncello made from the lemons growing on his little tree a few feet from the outdoor table.

My husband and 8 other friends of ours had a fantastic first experience with BonAppetour while on a visit to Rome. Alessandro was an extremely gracious host and the meal was the best dining experience we had while in Rome. We will definitely consider BonAppetour as a dining option in the future when we travel and highly recommend Alessandro.

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.
