Laura was an excellent host. The meal was absolutely delicious. It was a great experience and nice to get out of the city. I would highly recommend Laura!

I have to say this is a wonderful experience in Laura's home. She has a big lovely house and cooks perfect Italian food. We really like the pasta made by herself. Her family is very friendly. We would like to visit the second time and I will definitely recommend to my friends.

The four of us ventured to Laura's on one of the last nights of our trip. It was the third Italian Bonappetour dinner and, again, certainly did not disappoint. I was concerned about the logistics of traveling a bit out of town but it was a wonderful, easy adventure by train. We were picked up at the station by her son who even showed us their town and its fabulous church on the way to their beautiful home. Laura's house rests on a hill looking across fields lit by the setting sun towards the coast and Rome in the distance. We dined on the terrace into the night as Laura, her son, and their friend served us many delicious courses. My husband still tells everyone about the best, most delicate lasagne he's ever tasted. As night fell, the lights of Rome come on and we looked closer at the glowing Vatican dome through a telescope. After dinner they joined us relaxing on the terrace as we chatted until reluctantly heading back to the train. It was a wonderful dinner and I would heartily suggest an evening at Laura's to anyone.

She was kind to pick me up from and send me to the train station. It was a great dinning experience with her and her family in Rome.

I was at Laura's on a winter evening for dinner. The beauty of the house, the flame in the fireplace an the pleasant and comfortable atmosphere made up for the cold outside and ... for having missed the FAMOUS VIEW!!! What about the food? I must say I could not taste all that Laura prepared for us but what I ate was at the same time SIMPLE and SPECIAL and (let's name it properly) GOOD.

Una cena deliziosa, di cui ricordiamo l'accostamento di sapori e la sorpresa dei profumi, degli aromi e dei colori. L'ambiente accogliente e il panorama unico ne fanno un posto speciale dove tornare sicuramente. Siamo stati da Laura una sera d'inverno, ci resta la voglia di provare i sapori, gli aromi e l'atmosfera dell'estate...

Consiglio vivamente di andare a pranzo o a cena da Laura . Le sue pietanze sono eseguite con prodotti biologici, ricche di gusto e fantasia. L'accoglienza calda e cortese che riserva agli ospiti rendono l'ambiente accogliente e famigliare in una location che si affaccia su Roma dall'alto dei Castelli romani, veramente spettacolare.
