What You Can Expect

Best Rome Gourmet Food and Wine Tasting

Enjoy a wine-tasting session in Rome!

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 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 along with a dessert of either chocolate pudding or fruit.

Whet your appetite for more? Upgrade to enjoy a further two courses! After the first course (as described above), you'll enjoy an inviting selection of six regional cheeses, six premium salamis and hams as well as a cold meat and smoked fish platter.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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.

What an evening! Our party consisted of our son and his girlfriend, private wine tasting. A table was set up by the window and we could see all the local patrons having wine and enjoying this special wine bar as we were about to experience. The knowledge of Masimo, 5th generation, and he was also the chief, made this a cultural experience we were looking for. The wine was from local vineyards, fabulous selection, and the food was just as fabulous, home cooking. This was an experience not to be missed and it complemented our day of tours. It was a great way to end our day and one we will never forget.

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

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

The wine was delicious and the owner was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. However, the upgrade was either inaccurately described or simply not worth it. I received pasta, a small amount of cheese and prosciutto and that was it for the food. The price of the regular tasting would be worth it but the upgrade is certainly overpriced.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2014

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.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2015

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.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2013
