Good for your tastebuds, good for your health and good for the environment
We're in the heart of Trastevere, one minute walk off the main Piazza di Santa Maria down a quiet cobbled side street. One of the central districts within the ancient city walls, many visitors and residents name it their favourite area.
An historic centuries old traditional house (not an apartment). Very traditional self-contained home with original wooden beamed ceilings and private garden (with a well-established orange tree). The dining room is spacious with a candle-lit fireplace setting a beautiful mood.
Rome itself is full of great food markets linked to local regional producers and the perfect place for our Savouring Seasons project with high quality varied ingredients available year round.
A delightful evening with Francesca. The company, food and setting were all wonderful. Francesca kept the conversation flowing and the evening went by too quickly. The whole experience added to an amazing mini holiday in Rome. Totally recommend it!!
My wife and I had an amazing dinner with Francesca (and her adorable little pup) in her charming backyard in Trastevere. The wine and food were delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Francesca and chatting about her time in Italy. The menu included: chickpea flour pita bread, baked arancini balls with potato in place of rice, zucchini boats, and delicious Tiramasu. I highly recommend a visit to Francesca and Ryan’s home for a home-cooked, healthy meal with an Italian flair!
Apologies. I actually did type a review immediately after but we had terrible internet problems. We had a wonderful evening with Ryan and Francesca. Lovely vegan meal served at leisure by interesting and affable hosts. We have since recommended to all of our classmates and are hoping that the same choice in Florence is as good. I hope all their dreams are realised and I will go visit them again. Many thanks.
We had a wonderful evening with a delicious menu and inspiring talks. Francesca and Ryan were great hosts who also had lots of useful tips according our remaining stay in Rome. We would definitely do this again!❤ All the best! Franzi and Emily
Delicious meal, lovely and intresting hosts. Surprising and Original courses, great wine and the cutest dog! If you are looking for a unique eating expirians this is the place.
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.
