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!

Alessandro was incredibly welcoming and informative about how to get to his place and about the food we were served. We had the seafood meal and it was wonderful! It was also my husband's birthday and Alessandro made a fantastic chocolate cake to celebrate!

One of our most memorable dining experiences in Rome was our evening spent with Alessandro and Elena. Not only was the food outstanding but they welcomed us warmly to their home. It was like dining with friends. Alessandro is an amazing chef. He served us a traditional Roman meal. The starter was a mouth watering salmon cannoli followed by a delicious pasta dish. The second course was fresh fish in a yummy sauce, typical Roman style. For dessert Elena prepared a tiramisu and a hazelnut roll cake. They were the some of the best desserts we've ever tasted! We sat around the table drinking wine and contemplating life! We would highly recommend this experience especially with Alessandro and Elena.

Wow. We had an very memorable incredible dining experience with Allesandro and his lovely fiancee Elena. His place is a bit out of the way so I would suggest taking a taxi there if you are staying in the historic area of Rome or allow for at least an hour to get there via metros and trains. He is truly a fine chef. We opted for the seafood experience and it was well worth it. We had a shrimp appetizer in a chickpea sauce which was excellent, as was the seafood Risotto. Everything was wonderfully prepared. This was definitely the best meal we had in our entire 1 month trip in Europe, and one that we will never forget our entire lives. I would say to go in a group of 4 or more, as it did feel a bit awkward at times just having my wife and I and Alessandro and Elena, especially since my wife doesn't speak English. However that in no way detracts from the experience. We had a wonderful Romantic meal for sure, The bonus was the walk back from his place past the Vatican and along the Tiber to our apartment in historic Rome. About 3.5km but a wonderful after dinner walk. Thanks so much for opening your home for us to dine in and meet you Alessandro. Good luck to both of you!

One of the best experiences I had in Rome. If looking for an authentic italian home dinner, this is a great option. Alessandro was very hospitable and shared with us his knowledge of food and his favorite dishes. Make sure to come on an empty stomach.Some of the best food I have tasted in Rome.

Dinner at Alessandro's was a truly delightful part of my short stay in Rome, and the best meal I had without question. I was on my own, and no one else booked on the same night, so I had a delicious meal made just for me. I enjoyed our conversation and learned a lot from Alessandro about the ingredients in the dishes he prepared. He is a talented chef and he and Elena are gracious hosts and I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Rome!

My husband and I had a dining experience with Alessandro during our trip to Rome that was fabulous to say the least. It came at the end of a 3 week trip to Italy mostly in Puglia and was most definitely our best meal of the entire trip. Alessandro is a talented chef as well as a sommelier. Our meal was prepared with care and incredibly fresh with all local ingredients and a great wine pairing of a regional wine. I hope to duplicate some of the dishes when I return home. The conversation was engaging and it was great getting to know Alessandro as a person as well as a chef. We left with full tummies, well satisfied and friends. We hope that our paths cross again in Italy or possibly a trip for Alessandro and his girlfriend to California. If you book a food experience with Alessandro I can tell you right now you won't be disappointed. Bon appetit as they say!

This was the best experience in Italy I had the entire time I was there. We had dinner with Tony on our last night in Rome. His house is so cute and he uses fresh herbs and fruit to incorporate into his meals which is really great. Tony's food was so so incredible, it was such an honor to eat with him and to learn some of his culture just through the food. He paired the dinner with a great red wine that complimented every course he brought out. All of the food was absolutely wonderful and cooked to perfection, but my favorite dish was the pasta he made with pecorino cheese, pepper, and pork's cheek. It was so delightful. Tony himself is so wonderful and really personable and kind. He was a little shy at first, but he warmed up very quickly and then was very fun to talk to. We also had another man join us from the UK and he was also lovely to talk to! I liked how Tony added another person to our group so that there was more diversity and it was really enjoyable meeting two people from another country and really getting to know them in the three hours we had dinner. Tony was truly a joy to be around, and like I said, his food was amazing and that dinner alone was hands down, the best part about my trip to Italy. I highly recommend doing this. Tony also has a little cottage for five people that he rents out which is awesome, and next time I am in Rome I am going to stay there!

This was probably the highlight of our dining experiences in Rome. We had made arrangements thru BonAppetour. BonAppetour lets you discover amazing food experiences and events. They offer everything from food tours, cooking classes, bar crawls, dinner parties, and much more. This was our first time using We read thru the listings on their website for Rome and chose Alessandro, who was offering a truly Roman feast overlooking the Vatican City. Alessandro is a personal chef and sommelier. It was very easy to make these arrangements with him online. He was extremely responsive to our every question. We knew we were in for a real treat, and he did not disappoint us. He really paid attention to our requests and prepared a dinner for us that perfectly suited our tastes. BonAppetour, and we were so pleased. We will definitely try them again in other cities around the world. He gave us wonderful directions to his home. (We were able to take a bus from our apartment to his home.) We were warmly greeted by Alessandro, who we will now call Tony, because we are friends forever. It was a lovely evening so we dined al fresco on a delightful, covered patio. He even had a heater in the event it got cold. Since it was just the two of us and Tony, we sat for a while and got to know each other. We were thrilled to learn how he became a chef and sommelier. He offered us a white wine called Trebbiano from the Sant’Andreas Winery (about 1-1/2 hours south of Rome), which he explained was one of his favorites and he was so surprised to learn that we had visited that same winery three days previously. Tony is the consummate chef – he is really into making his guests have a wonderful food experience. He makes everything and uses the freshest, local, seasonal ingredients available. Our dinner started with bruschetta (a crunchy bread with tomatoes) – a perfect start. This was followed by a delicious risotto with artichokes. Artichokes were in season, and this risotto was light and full of flavor. What made this dinner even more special was that Tony dined with us. We were delighted when Tony’s girlfriend joined us - we really enjoyed the stimulating conversations. Our main course was delicately prepared chicken slices in an orange sauce accompanied by a fennel salad with oranges. The dessert for us was a banana cake with strawberries – a terrific finish to a perfect meal. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. Ah, but we were not finished. Their final act of kindness was to present us with Limoncello made from the lemon trees growing right next to where we were seated. If you come to Rome and want to have a unique dining experience, book an evening with Alessandro. You will not be disappointed. We had a great time!
