    Wonderful food in a very nice restaurant. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A restaurant we would not have found without this experience but would definitely return.

    Excellent experience. Daniela was very knowledgeable about both food and the area. It was a great way to start off the week in Rome with insider information on where to eat and what to see. Would recommend this experience to anyone.

    This was a wonderful evening! Martina, our guide, was fabulous. She made everyone feel as if they were "home". We were 8 people in all (including Martina). The food was absolutely delicious, and the pairings were great as well. I very highly recommend this.

    had a great time in Rome. The wine tasting was great as was the excellent dinner. The host was a lot of fun and made it an enjoyable night. I also met a family on the tour who were great fun. The whole evening was amazing. would do it again.

    Martinam was a very gracious and engaging tour guide. We experienced 1st wine and appetizers in an old wine cellar that contains one of the best wine collections in Rome. Dinner was served upstairs in an elegant but relaxed setting (casual dress was just fine). Wine and food pairings were outstanding! Highly recommend this tour over finding fine-dining experience on your own.

    My husband, my father in law, brother and sister in law did this while in Rome. I can't say enough good things about this. By far our best food of our trip thus far. The food is second however to the wonderful time we had. Everyone in our party can't stop raving about the staff, location and the entire evening. I highly recommend this tour.

    Booked this as a special treat for my partner's 60th birthday and was delighted with the whole evening. We got very wet on our way to the meeting point but were greeted very warmly by our guide Martina and also by the restaurant owners when we arrived. The restaurant with its stained glass ceiling and racks of wine lining the walls has a timeless feel to it. We were taken down into the wine cellars for prosecco with appetizers and shown a wall dating back to 1BC. Very special indeed! Upstairs we were seated round the table, it was great to get to know our fellow tourists from the USA and UK. Martina told us about the family, how they set up the restaurant and obviously has a very fond relationship with them. She was an excellent host, explaining the different wines and food courses to us as well as sharing general information about Roman cuisine. She also showed an interest in every party and offered to help with any recommendations for visits to other cities. The food was delicious, the wines a perfect choice for each course and the whole evening was delightful. It all ended far too soon. We came out and passed by the Pantheon which is lit up at night, adding to the evening's special mood. Many thanks to the Martina and the Bleve family for this great experience!
