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!
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!
Amazing amazing the best meal we had in Rome and all our other stops !
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
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.
AMAZING! This was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We learned to make fresh Pasta that was so simple and so delicious. Alessandro is fantastic and the hospitality was outstanding. We had delicious wine and limoncello and great conversation. He gave us several recommendations for Rome and other areas of Italy, and everything we tried was great. We truly enjoyed our experience and wished we could have stayed longer in Rome to do his wine tasting tour. Highly Recommend. Thank you again so much Alessandro!
