An animal-free feast, this completely homemade dinner has a focus on local seasonal produce, quality ingredients and explores many wonderful tastes and textures.
Over 4 courses, we showcase our favourite Roman recipes and look forward to serving our food with discussions of cooking techniques and philosophy.
We welcome you into our home in Monti, Rome's ancient centre, and serve you in a wonderfully atmospheric dining room with unrivalled views of the Colosseum and forum.
Good for your tastebuds, good for your health and good for the environment.
View the Colosseum from our dining table and we'll also take you on the rooftop terrace for a cocktail and the best selfie in Rome.
We're in the Monti neighbourhood, with its many undiscovered gems we'll happily share with you.
You can very easily reach us with a metro station one minute away and taxis and busses always available.
We had the loveliest time with Francesca! Unfortunately, Ryan was out of town, but we really enjoyed chatting with Francesca. She’s a great conversationalist and a truly wonderful host. Our dinner was out of this world. We had a radicchio and onion toast appetizer, an autumnal soup, perhaps the best cacio e pepe we had in all of Italy (yes, including the dairy version we treated ourselves with another night), some mushroom balls with a delicious yogurt-like sauce, beans, potatoes, and then a dessert we cannot believe didn’t have dairy—a chocolate mousse-like bar. Additionally, the organic and sustainable wine she served us was great and the digestif after the meal was spot on. Bonus: a killer view of the Colosseum from their beautiful apartment.
The best vegan food available in all of Rome! Ryan and Francesca have exemplary taste and style with an obvious passion that shined though all evening. We will book with them again next time we are in Rome!
What a fantastic evening. Francesca and Ryan were a very welcoming couple who served delicious Gourmet Vegan Food which was fantastic! Their passion for quality and tasty food shines through everything they do, using seasonal produce and working hard to find new healthy ways of giving vegan food a contemporary and imaginative twist with Italian influence. The location is amazing too, a beautiful home just over looking the Colosseum! We really appreciated the time and effort they obviously put in to create this meal. It couldn't have been a better evening and we wish them every happiness. Rachel and Colin, from Edinburgh, Scotland.
This was our first time using BonAppetour and we had a fantastic evening with Ryan and Francesca. We were made to feel at ease as soon as we arrived with a welcome cocktail and a trip to the rooftop terrace to enjoy the amazing views of the Colosseum.The food was of a very high standard and the conversation with the other guests flowed all evening. I would definitely recommend this experience to others. Thanks again Ryan and Francesca!
Wow! The food was absolutely delicious - Ryan is an excellent chef as well as cocktail mixer. It’s clear he has a passion for creativity in the kitchen. Francesca is a wonderful hostess and did a great job making sure the evening was filled with great conversation. The company was just as delightful as the food. Of course the spectacular view of the coliseum added to the ambiance. Would highly recommend this experience!
This was my first experience with BonAppetour, but Francesca and Ryan definitely set the bar. I was welcomed very warmly into their cosy home, located in the heart of Trastevere. Although I'm not vegan myself, I do enjoy eating vegetarian (mostly) and vegan (occasionaly). The dishes they prepared were not only bursting with flavour, but also beautifully presented. They even made an extra effort to make every course gluten free, especially for me. It's hard to choose my favourite dish of the night. I was crazy about the homemade crackers and I thought their own take on farinata, made into a lasagna was a winner. Between all this lovely food, conversation was very easy and touched topics ranging from healthy eating, history, poor service in cake shops, movies, yoga, mummies (yes mummies) etc. Time flew by and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I wish them the very best and I'm sure their passion for healthy food/living will take them far!
I had the pleasure of dining with Francesca and Ryan for a whole week when I visited them last September and it really opened my eyes to vegan and vegetarian cuisine. Like a lot of people I have, out of habit, been a big meat and dairy consumer for most of my life but I have started to examine this in recent months and Francesca and Ryan helped me do this not only by showing me delicious alternatives to animal based foods, but also by sharing the wealth of knowledge and nutritional information they have. They were happy to answer all of my questions in a really helpful and positive way. I now eat significantly less animal products and feel much happier for it. In such a meat and cheese eating culture as Italy it is hard to find good vegan and vegetarian food, so the fact that Francesca and Ryan are sharing their home, their food and their passion with other people is a great thing.
I'm not a vegan but Francesca's food is always so delicious and it inspires me to make changes in my own eating habits. Francesca and Ryan are very knowledgable about food and nutrition and it's interesting to learn about these things from them. They have really opened mine and my partners eyes to the huge health benefits from being vegan, and made us realise that we can still get all the things we want in our daily diets from the vegan lifestyle. I can not wait to try more lovely dishes that francesca has to make.
