What You Can Expect
Begin your evening of true Tuscan flavor in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your host and make the short walk to the private home. Settle into the cozy dining room and sip an aperitif as your host serves the first course.
Using traditional ingredients with an innovative spin, the homemade specialties included in your 5-course meal will vary depending on the season. (A sample menu can be found in the Itinerary section.) If you’d like to complement your meal with wine, you can purchase some from your host.
As you chat over a leisurely meal, the way real dinner is done in Italy, learn some of the local culinary secrets from your host, including the dishes’ origin stories. Finish up with Italian dessert and a coffee before making your way back to your hotel.

Excellent!!!! The food and the atmosphere was excellent beyond any of our expectations. The hosts were welcoming and delightful to interact with. Definitely we will let others know about our experience and suggest it to them.
Hands down the best food we had while in Florence - for the SECOND time! Hosts are two lovely, warm, open people who provide lovely Tuscan food without all of the touristy gimmicks not 5 dishes of pasta for sure!. It was our second time in Florence, and the second time having dinner with them, and it was absolutely perfect each time. Both times I went with my boyfriend, who lives in Italy, and his opinion is the same - this is not overpriced food, made just for tourists, as you'll see all around the cities in Italy! This is the real deal.
Absolutely a must do. The couple who provide this dinner are welcoming and the food is excellent. We really enjoyed that this was a small group 6 total our dinner so we got to have a great conversation with interesting people and get a real taste of Tuscan cooking. We would definitely do this again!
Wonderful experience - hosts were lovely and dinner fantastic! Really enjoyed talking with the other guests to compare Florence experiences - would highly recommend.
If I could I would give it more than 5 stars. Food amazing, hosts even better.
Spectacular! Our hosts operate a cooking school in their home. The night we were there the only other guests what participated in the school so they ate food that they had prepared while we ate a spectacular meal prepared for us. The courses were well chosen and complemented one another. Our main course was an excellent quail dish that still has us in smiling. We were able to purchase wine at the home quite inexpensively. We would certainly do this again next time we are in Florence!
Outstanding evening with a nice local family. Dinner was worth the money even without the interaction with the guests. Do IT!
Lovely evening with 2 lovely people! Food was excellent and the wine very good. Their knowledge of food and wine and warm hearts was a great joy!
What an amazing experince. My girlfriend and I booked this wonderfu night, not really sure what to expect. We were met at the pre arranged point and taken to a beautiful Florentine home where given a glass of Presecco and introduced to a couple who had been cooking all day on a seperate tour and would be joining us for dinner.
Another couple joined us and that made us 6. What took place over the evening was an amazing nioght of strangers getting to know each other over the 5 amazing courses and in the sourrounds of a beautiful home. The Chef was a genuine, friendly woman along with her husband who served us better than some waiters in 5 star hotels. People, this is honest good food in a relaxed atmosphere and I will be returning on my next trip to Florence. Don't miss this amazing night. Thank you.
Amazing organic food, absolutely delicious. Great way to have a different meal and meet some great people. Provided plenty of food, and offered a wine tasting option, which was well worth it.
