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!
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 were in Rome for 3 days, and of all the food we tried, of all the restaurants we ventured to, Alsessandro's meal was the best. Not only was it made with love and family recipes, but he also took the time to teach us how the food was made, the history behind it, why certain wine's pair well with the meal, and that's just the beginning. My fiance and I felt incredibly welcome and as if we made a new friend in Italy. We can't wait to go back because we will 1000% do this again!
Alessandro is a talented and well educated chef and a lovely person. Our dinner with him was delicious and one of our favourite experiences in Rome. He prepared a 100% plant based meal as per our request. I will recommend this opportunity to all my friends.
I booked with Alessandro for a group of friends as we celebrated a friends 40th. We were also looking for a different experience to the usual restaurant excursions. The host was great with such a large group and everyone in the group enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent, and the wine even more so.
Great food and wine from a wonderful host, chef and sommelier. Alessandro (Tony) was great. The reason I give it a 4 is because of BonAppetour's misleading promotion, suggesting an evening with a Roman couple. It ended up being a meal in a home restaurant with 10 other customers.
We had a great experience dining with Alessandro. The food was very authentic traditional Roman cuisine, but he still managed to put his personal twist on every dish he served. The atmosphere and company at his house was friendly and familiar. As a seasoned chef and sommelier, he was also happy to share his knowledge about where else to find good food and wine in Rome and Italy, so we could make the most out of the rest of our trip. Grazie mille!
We had so much fun cooking an authentic and delicious Italian dinner with Alessandro. The recipes we made were amazing, we were so satisfied with the dinner and enjoyed learning old family cooking tips from Alessandro. Our conversations with him were so easy and he made us feel right at home. If we are back in Rome we definitely plan on cooking with our new friend Alessandro again. Thank you for making our visit to Rome so special and memorable!
Alessandro was a spectacular host! My friends and I participated in the vegan pasta making class and not only was the food delicious, we learned so much about the process. Alessandro was careful to explain everything thoroughly and even provided the recipes we could take with us to prepare the dishes at home. Alessandro was very personable and a great conversationalist. It was a joy to learn about his family, his career path, and tidbits about Italy in general. He even emailed us with many other suggestions and recommendations for activities, restaurants and areas to explore. We had an amazing experience, topped off by a shot of homemade limoncello! The only suggestion I would make, is to perhaps offer a light appetizer during the cooking. Highly recommend! Thanks so much Alessandro!
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.
Myself and three friends had the pleasure of visiting Alessandro in his home for a great evening of food, wine and conversation The food was beautiful cooked, and we all enjoyed Alessandro explaining how the different courses were made and the ingredients contained The wines accompaning the food were all locally sourced and of great quality We were joined at dinner by two visitors from Israel who helped to make the nigh entertaining and informative We would highly recommend when in Rome to arrange a visit to Alessandro home We thoroughly enjoyed the experience
