ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

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!

ABOUT THELOCATION

I live a short distance away from the Vatican City and St.Peter's, in a beautiful 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, we can have dinner in my garden or on my home rooftop 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!
