Know More about this tour

Meet your food-loving guide near the awe-inspiring Pantheon, and then enjoy a short stroll to a gem of a family-run restaurant to begin your 2.5-hour wine and dinner experience.

On arrival, greet the friendly restaurant owners — true lovers of traditional Italian cuisine and wine, they also produce cheese and other local specialties. Then, follow your guide through the elegantly decorated dining area, breathing in the intoxicating aromas that waft from the kitchen as you do so, and descend into the restaurant’s private cellar.

Wander around the cellar and immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of this incredible, historical setting — during renovation works in the area, an imposing Roman structure was discovered at the cellar’s floor level. When the time comes, gather with your small group to enjoy a classic Italian aperitivo. Sip a glass of prosecco as you savor a mouthwatering selection of cured meat and rich, regional cheese.

After your aperitivo, head back into the restaurant and take a seat at your reserved table for your tantalizing 3-course dinner. Sink your teeth into dish after dish of exquisitely prepared Italian delights including Roman pasta and beef cheek with potato puree. With each course, enjoy a sample of fine wine that has been paired perfectly by the chef and guide, and learn how the delicate flavors in the wine enhance the flavors in your food.

Your experience concludes outside the Pantheon. Take a moment to marvel at the illuminated facade of this majestic building, before making your own way back to your hotel.

  • 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.

  • Wonderful Food in a beautiful setting. We loved it and it was a great way to end our visit to Italy. Highly Recommended!

  • what I thought would be an exciting evening with the chef preparing food in the cellar turned out to be a surprise. Prosecco and bit size cheeses were served down in the wine cellar, but then we came upstairs into the dining room to eat. First course of pasta was four forkfulls. Second course of beef cheeks was two forkfulls. Dessert was three selections of a couple bites each. Each course was accompanied by a rather ordinary wine selection. Not an exciting evening for what I thought would be, especially at 110. per person.

  • EXCELLENT!!! Lovely place and the food was amazing.

  • The food and wine were wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

  • Best food we had while in Rome. Chef was amazing and our guide was very informative of all the different foods/wines in Italy. She gave us what to eat and what not to eat while in Italy.

  • Great meal, great wine, great atmosphere. Met the owners. Highly recommend this dinner experience.

  • Our first night in Rome and what a treasure! I literally felt like I was immersed into the Italian culture. The food was the best we had while in Rome and the wine created such a warm atmosphere. Our host was knowledgeable and authentic with a warm presence. Our small group of about 10 was laughing it up as if we knew each other for years! This was our mother/daughter trip of our lives and what a welcome this was for us! Thank you!

  • This was truly a 5 star experience. The wine and food pairings were exceptional. We started in the wine cellar with a sparkling wine and appetizer and then headed to the dining room where we had a pasta dish with white wine, a main course with red wine and then dessert with a Moscato dessert wine. The hostess was most personable and charming. We would not hesitate to book this tour again.
