ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

If you are visiting Italy on honeymoon and are looking for romantic things to do in Rome, I would like to cordially invite you to a gastronomical dining experience at my place, where I will prepare a special menu for you and your loved one. It will be a romantic ambiance, away from the hustle and bustle and long queues at restaurants and other tourist traps. An intimate setting, will make for a more romantic and unique experience. It will be just a private dining experience, with me, as a professional chef and wine sommelier, at your service. You could choose to have your own romantic time with your loved one, or dine together with me and my girlfriend (a double date), and we will share with you some of our stories, and what we like about Rome as well.

ABOUT THEMENU

For the special romantic menu, you will have a 4 course meal (appetizer, first course, main course+ sides, and dessert) + wines paired. The choices are:


Appetizer: Smoked salmon rolls with cream cheese OR Bresaola rolls with cream cheese OR Selection of meats and cheeses OR Taste of chickpeas cream OR Jar with burrata, cherry tomatoes and lamb's lettuce.

As in all my menu, the wine is included and it is chosen and matched by me according to the menu chosen.

Upon request, I could also help you arrange any special surprises that you might like! Just tell me and we could work it out.

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!

SOME TESTIMONIALS

Elizabeth

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.

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!
