Are you looking for good places to eat in Rome? If you are meat and barbecue addicted, this is the right event for you! This time I'll light my barbecue in the garden and will prepare a mixed grill for connoisseurs. All will be accompanied by an appetizer, vegetables and dessert for a complete menu that will delight you.
As always, I’ll choose personally the best wine to pair with each dish to make that perfect marriage between food and wine that will enhance the flavours from both and will allow you to have a unique and unforgettable experience of taste and smell! Courage barbecue lovers, come forward! Besides cooking the best Italian dishes, we love meeting new people from around the world!
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 such fun. Part of it was finding Alessandro's Apartment. The meal was excellent and the presentations were beautiful. Loved the wine Alessandro served. He has a great breath of knowledge of the wine, the food and the area. Both he and Elena were wonderful hosts.
This meal was exceptional, everything we hoped it would be. We were presented with three different meats, each barbecued to perfection and wonderfully seasoned. The wine was excellent (both bottles!) and the dessert was tasty and light. Alessandro's homemade limoncello was incredible. We only wish we had been able to spend even more time with Alessandro and Eleana, both of whom we found to be personable, informative and very interesting. This was a winner!
I booked a Roman barbecue with Alessandro not fully knowing what to expect since it's my first time booking. From the moment we arrived both Alessandro and Elena greeted us as if we were friends. The food, the ambience and conversation was excellent, I especially enjoyed the sausages and his family recipe for limoncello. If you go to Rome, you need to have this wonderful chef cook for you.
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!
My cooking experience with Alessandro was amazing. Alessandro was such a warm, knowledgeable and generous host. I learnt so many invaluable tips, tricks and traditional methods of preparation from Alessandro. Alessandro is very skilful and passionate about using simple, fresh, seasonal ingredients to prepare amazingly flavoursome and nourishing dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the prepared meal with Alessandro and his partner Elena, who were able to give me an insight into what it was like living as an Italian. I can not recommend Alessandro as a cooking experience host or private chef enough! It has definitely been a highlight of my visit to Roma.
AMAZING! This was the highlight of our trip to Rome. We learned to make fresh Pasta that was so simple and so delicious. Alessandro is fantastic and the hospitality was outstanding. We had delicious wine and limoncello and great conversation. He gave us several recommendations for Rome and other areas of Italy, and everything we tried was great. We truly enjoyed our experience and wished we could have stayed longer in Rome to do his wine tasting tour. Highly Recommend. Thank you again so much Alessandro!
We enjoyed a wonderful five course dinner with Alessandro at his " home restaurant" in an intimate teracce setting. Alessandro had put a lot of thought into the menu, and the dishes were perfect for a very warm August evening. Everything was fresh and light, and many of the ingredients were from his garden. Alessandro was also a gracious host shared lots of insights into local food and wine. Everything combined to make a wonderful, memorable evening.
We booked a four-course dinner at Alessandro's home restaurant via BonAppetour. It was a great opportunity to experience a genuine home-cooked meal with a local host, in a non-touristy neighbourhood (albeit not far from the Vatican). From the start, communication with Alessandro was very easy - he was friendly and quick to respond. We were a group of four with very different dietary requirements and preferences, which Alessandro took into account with the menu. Our opinions of individual dishes differed, but we all agreed that the pasta and chicken were outstanding - the best dishes I'd tasted in Rome! The bruschetta made with homegrown tomatoes was also stunning. I don't drink, so Alessandro introduced me to Chinotto, which was refreshing and absolutely delicious. Alessandro was a great host. He explained how he made each dish and we had a very interesting conversation about all sorts of things! As it was summer, we sat in the (sheltered) garden and were able to go up to the roof terrace and see the homegrown herbs and vegetables he used. Afterwards he sent us an email with plenty of food-related tips and recommendations, and we visited one of the recommended food stores which was indeed amazing! I highly recommend dinner with Alessandro. There are many great restaurants in Rome, but Alessandro's kindness and hospitality, and the personalised experience, made this event truly memorable.
