ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

In a city whose cuisine thrives on guanciale and pecorino, being vegan can be a challenge. Most trattorie offer classic dishes like cacio e pepe and saltimbocca that are off-limits to vegans. So whether you’re already a vegan, thinking of becoming one, or just want to experience an evening of alternative eating, I will deliciously demonstrate that a satisfying meal doesn’t have to rely on meat or dairy. Dinners are held at my home near St. Peter's Basilica.

ABOUT THEMENU

Appetizer: Bruschetta with fresh tomatoes
First Course: Seasonal risotto - depending on the time of year, your risotto could have artichokes, porcini mushrooms, asparagus...
Main Course: Soup of pulses
Sides: Coleslaw with tomatoes and carrots or fennel salad with orange and olives
Dessert: Tony's vegan muffins or vegan tart with jam

ABOUT THELOCATION

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 wonderful evening dining in Allessandro's home. He prepared and thoughtful and delicious vegan menu for my daughter and I and even served his homemade limoncello after our lovely dessert. He provided many tips on food related topics as we ate and talked. His communication regarding plans and directions was excellent. I would highly recommend joining Allessandro for any one of his in home experiences. Thank you !!

My husband and I had a great time with Allesandro (Tony) in his home. His attention to detail was amazing. We had the pleasure to dine with another couple as well which made the experience even better. We loved all the foods he prepared and especially his home made lemoncello. Yum! Tony paired each plate with the perfect wine and provided us a story of the wine and the recipe itself. I truly enjoyed the entire thing and would do it again in a heartbeat.

SOME TESTIMONIALS

Alessandro was a spectacular host! My friends and I participated in the vegan pasta making class and not only was the food delicious, we learned so much about the process. Alessandro was careful to explain everything thoroughly and even provided the recipes we could take with us to prepare the dishes at home. Alessandro was very personable and a great conversationalist. It was a joy to learn about his family, his career path, and tidbits about Italy in general. He even emailed us with many other suggestions and recommendations for activities, restaurants and areas to explore. We had an amazing experience, topped off by a shot of homemade limoncello! The only suggestion I would make, is to perhaps offer a light appetizer during the cooking. Highly recommend! Thanks so much Alessandro!

We had a lovely evening at alessandro’s home restaurant. Food was great and was paired with wines which were expertly explained by our host. We were joined by a couple from USA who we hit it off with straight away. Thoroughly enjoyable evening I would recommend this to anyone considering it. The evening ended with a taste of allesandros home made lemoncelli which was delicious.

We are always looking for ways to experience the place/ country as a local and cooking class combined with dinner in Alessandro house was a perfect choice. From day one - first email exchange - Alessandro shows he really cares about his guests and provide you with all the info you might need. Very patient and polite cooking teacher. Him and his girlfriend are very kind and interesting people and make you feel during the dinner like you are visiting your friends. I highly recommend the whole experience.

My husband and I had dinner with Alessandro and a wonderful guest from Holland. His home restaurant was a unique and delicious experience for us. Our food and wine was explained in great detail by our passionate host. We learned about Roman cooking, as well as having some laughs and great conversation about our different cultural traditions. I love being in the presence of someone passionate about what they do and we had that with Alessandro. The meal he made for us was fantastic. I'll be dreaming about the chicken in red wine sauce!
