Hi, I'm Alessandro (Tony for my friends!). I'm a true Roman living very near the Vatican City and St.Peter's! I've always had a passion for cooking, though I studied and practiced law for a while. I learnt cooking by watching my grandmother, Iolanda and my mother Maria Pia. As a child, I loved experimenting in the kitchen. My passion for cooking, led me to quit law and pursue a diploma by Chef of Hotel where I also worked as a Chef at a famous international hotel chain. So I'm certified by HACCP. Actually I'm a Personal Chef and I'm also a graduate Sommelier registered in the Worldwide Sommelier Association. I also have a Guest House next to my Home Restaurant. My cozy cottage hosts until 5 guests! Here you can relax while waiting for taste my delicacies! It is always a pleasure to cook for guests. I find it relaxing, rewarding and I am always happy when guests love my dishes. I love to experiment with new recipes, starting, by tradition, and then adding a modern touch to it, or even designing completely new delicacies! I hope you will join me soon in my Home restaurant!

My husband and I wanted to explore the authentic Roman cuisine and we were so delighted to have experienced an amazing dinner with Alessandro and Elena. We had a special Easter dinner. Alessandro has prepared a menu for us when we have arrived. We had a nice chat and discussion about Rome and its surrounding. They gave us great tips on where to eat and shop. The food was great, especially the main course abbacchio al vino (lamb with white wine) and the cheesecake with homemade limoncello at the end.

We had a great dinner with Alessandro and Elena! My husband and I came with two friends, and he had arranged for two other couples, also from the US, to come on the same night. Alessandro didn't eat with us, but had some wine, and had lots to say, especially about food and cooking. It was a very comfortable, social evening, and the traditional Roman meal was the best we had during our stay in Rome!

Amazing time with Ales and His girlfriend Elena!! I will surely have another dinner with them if ever I come back to Rome. I advise anyone to try this experience, especially if you are doing a solo trip and yo are interested in learning how to cook Italian food and hear point of views about local Italian. I truly worth thing to do in Italy, it was good to also now that he also does group classes, great opportunity to get know new people or just to come along with all your friends to attend the class. Thank you for everything. See you over here in London!!
