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.

It was a really lovely evening filled with delicious food, good conversation, and great company. Francesca is an inventive and wonderful cook. Using high quality whole ingredients she fed us a lovely multi course meal. The location is very convenient and the perfect setting for just such an event. Would highly recommend.

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!

What a wonderful first experience with BonAppetour! Francesca is a gracious hostess, a magician in the kitchen, and fine company. Since I am from Boston and have been a solo traveller abroad now for several months, she was thoughtful enough to invite one of her friends who also hails from the Boston area to join in the fun. Over a delicious dinner, the three of us had a thought-provoking and wide-ranging conversation about our travels and misadventures, the Briggs-Meyer personality test, Alaska, astrology, and the farm-to-table movement. I didn't notice time passing! That, to me, is a measure of a successful dinner. Our menu: On the evening I visited, Francesca prepared a crudite sampler with fava, a bubbling hot potatoes au gratin, an innovative variation on vegetable lasagna, and a fresh plum tart. Everything was homemade from fresh ingredients. We rounded out the meal with fizzy ginger tea and a very nice red wine. The location: Francesca's apartment is cozy, conveniently located, easy to find, and meticulously clean. It was the perfect backdrop :-) Overall, I would give Francesca 6 stars if it were possible.



from London

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.
