ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Are you looking for a cooking lesson in Rome? How about taking a cooking lesson with locals in Rome? Join me for a hands-on cooking lesson in Rome, near the Vatican City, and experience a variety of delicious authentic Italian dishes.

Being a professional Chef and a Sommelier, you can expect to all the tips and tricks which will help you make this dish for your friends and family even after you go home! I'd love to pass on my knowledge of Italian cuisine to you as we cook the most important Italian dish of all: Pasta.
We will cook with fresh seasonal ingredients and enjoy the meal together once we're done cooking, 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 THEMENU

We will prepare the 2 most important kinds of home made pasta: fettuccine and ravioli.
Fettuccine with "white ragù"sauce (with sausages)
Ravioli with a classic Italian tomato sauce with carrots, onions, celery and garlic.

Timing: Morning, Afternoon or Evening, depending on availability. I will do my best to accommodate your Roman schedule!

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's pasta-making class was flawless, one of our very favorite memories from Rome! He taught us how to make the full meal, from start to finish, and we had the time of our lives rolling that pasta! And the FOOD - it was one of our most delicious meals in Rome. (We couldn't believe we cooked it! :) ) Highly, highly recommend!!

I was actually on a business trip to Italy, and I had two free days in Rome before flying back to my country. Found out that Bonappetour is offering such service. So I thought of learning some Italian cooking to surprise my wife. My experience with Chef Alessandro was a very pleasant one. He is very friendly, and speaks perfect English. Not only he was teaching me how to cook Italian dishes, but at the same time explaining to me about Italian ingredients, geography, and even the culture! It was an amazing night spent with Alessandro and his lovely girlfriend. I've learned so much about Italy from them, including Italian wine areas and their characteristics. It was truly a memorable time. I will definitely come to Chef Alessandro again if I ever come back to Rome.

Thank you so much for this fantastic experience for my sister and brother-in-law!! They only said great things about Alessandro and his girlfriend. After their dinner, my sister texted me, "Alessandro's dinner was so fun and so delicious! He and his girlfriend were lovely and we were super impressed with what he did without wheat and dairy." Alessandro even had a birthday candle and dessert for my brother-in-law's birthday - so thoughtful. Would highly recommend!

Don't miss a delightful evening in Rome with Chef and Sommelier Tony and his marvelous food. It was so enjoyable having fresh food with healthy preparations that tasted so decadent. What a beautiful patio setting on a beautiful October evening and fun to share it with new friends from Chicago. Thanks so much for making our experience in Rome special.

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!
