Know More about this tour

Meet your friendly host inside one of Rome’s best enotecas (wine bars), roughly halfway between Campo de' Fiori and Piazza Farnese, and then sit down at your table. The establishment is fast gaining a reputation as the best gourmet eatery in town. Meet the charismatic owner-come-sommelier and hear about local wine production and regional cuisine throughout the Lazio region.

Sip on six different glasses of Lazio wine, and discover how their flavors are complemented by food. Italians rarely drink without eating, so follow the lead of your host and savor a typical light Roman pasta dish (perhaps cannelloni or lasagne with vegetables in a white wine sauce) with chunks of artisan bread. A dessert wine called recioto di amarone della Valpolicella is then served with a sweet Roman dessert.

Whet your appetite for more? Upgrade to enjoy a further two courses! After the first course (as described above), you'll also enjoy tomato bruschetta, pasta alla carbonara dressed with tomato and olives, pecorino romano DOP cheese, fresh ricotta, porchetta (pork roasted with rosemary), roman sausage, then ciambelline al vino (wine cookies) or tozzetti (almond and lemon biscuits).

  • We were part of a very amiable group of eight - some of whom had participated in the event previously. The owner was a joy, but a bit talkative. He went into such detail on the wines and the vineyards that some of us amateurs were lost and the narrative seemed to drag on a bit much. However, the food, the wines and the company were wonderful.

  • Fantastic evening, would highly recommend. The bar is very easy to find and the owner Massimo is very welcoming and has such a passion for wine. We were both wine novices and he explained everything to us and we've came away with so much knowledge. Wine choices were fantastic as was the food.

  • This was an excellent wine tasting experience. Massimo, the owner, was so informative and very passionate about Italian wines.

  • This was one of our favorite things that we booked for our entire trip. We met a great couple and learned so many things. Massimo the owner of the restaurant is so friendly and knowledgeable. I've never met someone so passionate about what they do. We went back several times to get more wine and eat with him. Every time he suggested something different and told us all about the wine and the area it came from. The wine was always delicious and the food was great too! We got his info so that we can order wines from him. He hand picks all the wine that is sold in his place and everything is amazing!

  • This was the best experience we had in Rome for wine tasting, dinner and for an amazing wine sommelier, his name is Massimo and we had a great time in the wine bar. We actually had a private tasting because the other party didn't show up and that was great for us! The tasting included 6 wines and a desert wine, and the servings were full glasses, this was supposed to last 2.50 hours but we were there until midnight!! I recommended this amazing night out in Rome to everybody that loves wine! You get lots of good information about wineries in Italy.

  • The sommelier was very good. But the venue was crowded, so it was very hard to hear what he said. We did paid for extra food, but didnt get any more food then the guests who had not paid for an upgrade. The only difference was that we got carpaccio When the others got cheese and Pork meat. It was sold to us as something better than it was.

  • Everything was wonderful, we actually had our Wedding in this little place. Small but great time.

  • WONDERFUL!!! Massimo was great! He gave the perfect amount of teaching with the perfect amount of great wine and food. This was the perfect ending to our whole trip.

  • The wine bar did not know i was coming and never got my salami/cheese plate. The place was nice, but i expected something more personable for the amount of money i paid.

  • Too much talking about non relevant stuff. Venue very noisy and we could hardly hear the guide. Food and wine were good but not really enough of either.
