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!
