ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

In Rome on Easter Sunday but not sure where to eat? Consider a home-dining experience at my apartment close to St.Peter's Basilica! Our dinner will include classic Italian Easter dishes using seasonal spring ingredients, like risotto with artichokes and roasted lamb. Typical Roman specialties like fennel and orange salad and tiramisù round out our menu. Besides being a trained chef, I'm also a certified sommelier, so I'll carefully match the right wine to your meal.
What better way to learn about Easter in Rome than from the locals themselves and right near the Vatican? Come eat with us!

ABOUT THEMENU

Appetizer: Typical Easter specialties (Roman salami, boiled eggs and cheese bread)

First Course: Risotto with artichokes

Main Course: Lamb in red wine sauce

Side: Fennel salad with oranges and olives

Dessert: Traditional Easter cakes

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!

My husband and I wanted to explore the authentic Roman cuisine and we were so delighted to have experienced an amazing dinner with Alessandro and Elena. We had a special Easter dinner. Alessandro has prepared a menu for us when we have arrived. We had a nice chat and discussion about Rome and its surrounding. They gave us great tips on where to eat and shop. The food was great, especially the main course abbacchio al vino (lamb with white wine) and the cheesecake with homemade limoncello at the end.

My husband and I visited Rome with another couple in October and we booked an in home dinner with Allesondro and Elena to have the opportunity to experience the city as locals rather than as tourists. Allesondro and Elena were friendly and gracious and made us feel very comfortable during our time with them. The food and wine and homemade limoncello were excellent! We met some very interesting and fun people who shared dinner with us and enhanced the whole experience. This was our most memorable evening during our time in Rome and I plan to pursue more BonAppetour opportunities in our future travels. Thank you for such a unique way to add great memories to our vacation time in Italy.

We had a lovely evening at alessandro’s home restaurant. Food was great and was paired with wines which were expertly explained by our host. We were joined by a couple from USA who we hit it off with straight away. Thoroughly enjoyable evening I would recommend this to anyone considering it. The evening ended with a taste of allesandros home made lemoncelli which was delicious.

We are always looking for ways to experience the place/ country as a local and cooking class combined with dinner in Alessandro house was a perfect choice. From day one - first email exchange - Alessandro shows he really cares about his guests and provide you with all the info you might need. Very patient and polite cooking teacher. Him and his girlfriend are very kind and interesting people and make you feel during the dinner like you are visiting your friends. I highly recommend the whole experience.

My husband and I had dinner with Alessandro and a wonderful guest from Holland. His home restaurant was a unique and delicious experience for us. Our food and wine was explained in great detail by our passionate host. We learned about Roman cooking, as well as having some laughs and great conversation about our different cultural traditions. I love being in the presence of someone passionate about what they do and we had that with Alessandro. The meal he made for us was fantastic. I'll be dreaming about the chicken in red wine sauce!

My cooking experience with Alessandro was amazing. Alessandro was such a warm, knowledgeable and generous host. I learnt so many invaluable tips, tricks and traditional methods of preparation from Alessandro. Alessandro is very skilful and passionate about using simple, fresh, seasonal ingredients to prepare amazingly flavoursome and nourishing dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the prepared meal with Alessandro and his partner Elena, who were able to give me an insight into what it was like living as an Italian. I can not recommend Alessandro as a cooking experience host or private chef enough! It has definitely been a highlight of my visit to Roma.
