  • This was such a great experience. Our guide Martina was full of great information about the food and wine we were served. She kept us entertained with funny stories about herself and participated in the group conversation regardless of topic. The food and wine pairings were perfect.

  • Great food and great wine. Our guide, Ilaria, was so full of energy and shared great information about Roman food and culture. It was a wondeful night out!

  • This Dinner Experience was simply the BEST, it was Outstanding. We were a little worried about traveling during the off season, but were we ever wrong. Our guide was Alessandra, and she was the best guide we had on our trip. She was friendly, had a great personality and was very knowledgeable. I guess because it was the off season my wife and I were the only ones on the tour. The food and wine pairing were outstanding. The only thing about the hole night I did not like was reaching the end of the tour. I would Highly Recommend this to any one who loves great food, wine, and company.

  • This was a great way to start our visit in Rome. In the private cellar we were greeted with delicious wines and appetizers.
    From there the main and second courses were even better and paired with excellent wines. Our guide was also well versed in the local cuisine and additional restaurants to enjoy during our stay.

  • My wife scheduled this tour for our first night in Rome at the beginning of our vacation in Italy, and it did not disappoint. Having never been to Italy, this was a great way to get acclimated and make sure we had a great dinner. And the dinner was really great. Delicious dishes paired with ample wine portions. Our tour was on a Friday, which seems to have less guests than the Saturday tour. This worked out in our favor, because they seem to provide the same amount of wine for every group we also had two people who bought this tour that did not show up- they missed out!. The food was so good, we went back on Saturday night for dinner to try some more menu items on our own. We made the mistake of not making reservations, however, and almost didn't get in. Make reservations for dinner in advance everywhere you go in Italy! No one gave us this advice and if we hadn't encountered this issue on our second night, we would have missed out on some trattorias during our trip. Even during the week, make reservations.

  • Excellent meal with great company

  • This was a fabulous event. Our host, Martina, was a wealth of knowledge about the area, food and wines. The pre-dinner trip to the wine cellar was a really neat experience too. Consider this tour if you are looking for a wonderful meal in Roma.

  • This gourmet experience is amazing! We felt very welcome and special. The little aperitivo in the cellar is perfect to start breaking the ice with the host and with the group, plus, I had no idea about how much history can be hidden underneath a restaurant. The food and wine pairings are so delicious that I couldn't believe it! My vegetarian option was simply perfect. Incredible food, wine, dining with a local, all the tips about Italian and Roman cuisine: it's all definitely worth the cost!

  • our guide was amazingly friendly and accommodating. Pasta, appetizer and dessert were amazing, we weren't blown away by primary course and we did not meet family owners either, but still loved the experience and would recommend to others as well

  • Martina was our guide and did a great job teaching us about Italian wine and cuisine. The food was wonderful and it was very enjoyable as a small group tour.
