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.

SOME TESTIMONIALS

Alessandro was a spectacular host! My friends and I participated in the vegan pasta making class and not only was the food delicious, we learned so much about the process. Alessandro was careful to explain everything thoroughly and even provided the recipes we could take with us to prepare the dishes at home. Alessandro was very personable and a great conversationalist. It was a joy to learn about his family, his career path, and tidbits about Italy in general. He even emailed us with many other suggestions and recommendations for activities, restaurants and areas to explore. We had an amazing experience, topped off by a shot of homemade limoncello! The only suggestion I would make, is to perhaps offer a light appetizer during the cooking. Highly recommend! Thanks so much Alessandro!

We had a lovely evening at alessandro’s home restaurant. Food was great and was paired with wines which were expertly explained by our host. We were joined by a couple from USA who we hit it off with straight away. Thoroughly enjoyable evening I would recommend this to anyone considering it. The evening ended with a taste of allesandros home made lemoncelli which was delicious.

We are always looking for ways to experience the place/ country as a local and cooking class combined with dinner in Alessandro house was a perfect choice. From day one - first email exchange - Alessandro shows he really cares about his guests and provide you with all the info you might need. Very patient and polite cooking teacher. Him and his girlfriend are very kind and interesting people and make you feel during the dinner like you are visiting your friends. I highly recommend the whole experience.

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!
