We had the most fun and culinary experience with Alessandro. He really made it into a special and homey evening and everything was taken care of to perfection. We are real foodies and this was the best dinner we had on our trip to Rome. Thank you so much Alessandro and can't wait to come back!
The dinner chef Alessandro Ricchi prepared for us was the best meal we had on our two-week vacation to Italy! Fresh, flavorful, and plentiful the experience was a memorable treat!
29th May 2017 7:06am My husband and I had a lovely dinner with Tony and Elena. They are a totally charming couple and speak excellent English. The meal and wine that Tony served was delicious from start to finish. Tony is a professional sommelier and can tell you anything you want to know about Italian wines. This is my second experience eating in a Roman home and what a wonderful, eye-opening experience it is to learn about the daily life of the people who live in the city. The very best part of traveling the world is getting to know other people and cultures in a deep and authentic way. Breaking bread and eating delicious food and wine make it even better. I could easily have stayed another couple of hours chatting. I encourage anyone keen to break away from the pack of tourists in centro and experience the real Rome to sample this truly memorable experience.
We dined with Alessandro and Elena one night on our vacation to Rome with six friends. It was an excellent meal and we enjoyed talking with Alessandro and Elena. A highly recommended experience!
What a great experience! Tony (Alessandro) and his girlfriend Elena were so welcoming and the food was amazing. Tony gave us tips about Rome and was just overall warm and pleasant. Thanks so much Tony. We had a great night and we will hopefully see you again!!
