ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

If you are spending your Christmas or New Year in Rome, I'd like to invite you to come and celebrate it together with me and my family, the traditional Roman way. It won't be so fun to have your Christmas / New Year feast in a restaurant (long queues, extra charges), and I want to make sure you experience the REAL Christmas and New Year celebrations in Rome! We love having friends over to celebrate it with us, and also meeting new friends. Besides cooking the best Italian dishes, we love to meet people from all over the world! So we would be more than delighted to welcome you to join us in our Christmas and New Year celebration in the heart of Rome.

We will have a traditional Roman style feast, so it would be a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture, and get to experience first-hand, how Christmas and New Year is celebrated in Rome, Italy. I hope it could be one of your most memorable Christmas/ New Years' celebration, as we share together some of my signature dishes, wines chosen by me, and also the company of new friends. I look forward to welcoming all of you to my home to share these moments of celebration together with me and my girlfriend! So come by and let me give you a taste of the best Italian holiday dishes and of the Roman culture! By the end you will be able to say Buon Natale e felice Anno nuovo (Merry Christmas and a happy New Year) !

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!

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!
