ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

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!

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!

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.

What a delightful time my family spent with Alessandro and Elena on Christmas Eve. Our party of 16 was treated to a delicious meal and true Italian hospitality. Overall, most of the group said that dinner was the highlight of the vacation.

Alessandro was a wonderful host! We had an adventure navigating the little curvy streets to get to his cozy home. Our group of 8 dined with 3 other guests, who were lovely. Alessandro fully explained the menu he would prepare and his passion for local cuisine was apparent. We had three courses plus some holiday cakes (pannetonne) and chocolate for dessert. The main course was an orange chicken with fennel/Olive/orange salad. It was spectacular. With dinner, we had local red and white wine. After dessert, Alessandro served his homemade limencello. It was divine! I highly recommend dinner with Alessandro if you are looking for an authentic Roman experience. We hope to visit again!

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.
