Are you looking for restaurants in Rome? How about going for a meal while meeting locals in Rome? Join me for either lunch or dinner in Rome, near Vatican City, and experience a variety of delicious authentic Italian dishes.
Being a professional Chef and a Sommelier, you can expect to have a wonderful 5 course meal, of course with the best wines chosen by me, and perhaps some home-made limoncello! Join me and my girlfriend - we are both Romans and we like cooking, wine, films and rugby. During our meal together, you can be sure to have a good, relaxing time, full of pleasant conversations. We like to talk about various subjects including food, films and readings. My girlfriend is in fact a writer and a film critic!
Besides cooking the best Italian dishes, we love meeting new people from around the world!
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!
We had a perfect evening with great food equally matched by Alessandro's wine recommendations. On top of that it was a please to feel his passion about cooking when he presented the different dishes. Also meeting other guests contributed to the experience and we left his home with happy memories of food, wine, limoncello and interesting conversations. Thanks!
We enjoyed a wonderful evening with Alessandro and Elena! The food was fantastic and his presentation added a great deal to the meal. We learned a lot about life in Rome and really enjoyed the conversation with both hosts. We highly recommend!!
Dinner with Alessandro was the best meal we had on our week-long vacation in Italy and the highlight of our stay in Rome. Not only was he so welcoming, informative and friendly, but he is an excellent chef! Each of the 5 courses he served was above and beyond delicious and intricately prepared. He explained how each course was prepared, from picking the tomatoes from the garden at his mother's countryside villa to the process of making homemade limoncello. He taught us what the difference is between real classic Roman food vs. what you see at all of the touristy restaurants and I learned so much that I never previously knew about pasta, sauces and all the well-known Italian dishes I have eaten in the past. He even sent us an email afterwards with recommendations for restaurants and sights around the city which was such a nice touch. The experience was a great deal for the value and something we will never forget. I 100% recommend this to anyone visiting Rome!
A wonderful meal with a gracious and knowledgeable chef/host. Simple dishes carefully explained served with a fitting wine and home-made lekoncello.
Wonderful dinner and experience - one of the highlights of our trip!
Allesandro was very friendly and informative. He ensured we could easily locate his apartment. We enjoyed eating outside in the garden. I especially enjoyed the wonderful Pasta anchovy primi course he made. It was so subtly flavored and the herbs were his own organic home grown. The wine pairing with dinner was perfect. We got an education about the wines and foods and what is typical in Rome. This was a unique experience.
We absolutely loved the hospitality and delicious, authentic Roman feast prepared by Alessandro. The private dining experience provided by AlessNdro and his wonderful wife was very intimate and informative for first timers to Rome. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to indulge in local, authentic Roman food and to attain first hand knowledge of Italy, the culture and local experience.
Alessandro was GREAT! A group of us booked him to celebrate a close friend's birthday! Unfortunately, were got lost and arrived late but he was extremely understanding--even after we moved our initial reservation time! He met us with smiles! He served us a 5 course meal with ingredients fresh from his garden and local wine! It's the best meal I have throughout my entire 7 day stay in Italy! And best of all was the desert! Peach cheesecake which was utterly DELICIOUS! On top of great food, he has great conversation. He asked about our lives and shared his too! I recommend anyone traveling to Italy to take full advantage of his services!
We had the most fun and culinary experience with Alessandro. He really made it into a special and homey evening and everything was taken care of to perfection. We are real foodies and this was the best dinner we had on our trip to Rome. Thank you so much Alessandro and can't wait to come back!
The dinner chef Alessandro Ricchi prepared for us was the best meal we had on our two-week vacation to Italy! Fresh, flavorful, and plentiful the experience was a memorable treat!
