Your evening out in Rome starts at a location near the Pantheon, where you’ll meet your culinary guide and take a brief walk to a family-run restaurant for your memorable dinner experience in the Italian capital.
When you arrive, meet the owners of the restaurant, aficionados of traditional Italian wine and cuisine, and then head down to the restaurant’s private cellar. Take in the unique ambience of the cellar, where an old Roman structure was discovered at the floor level during renovation work in the area, and take part in the Italian pre-dinner custom of an aperitivo—a cocktail or glass of wine (in this case, you’ll receive a glass of prosecco) enjoyed with a selection of regional cheese and cured meat.
Then head back up to the elegant dining room, sitting down at your reserved table for your 3-course dinner of Roman-style dishes (see the Itinerary for a sample menu). Each course is paired with a fine regional wine selected by the chef and guide to enhance the flavors of both the food and vino.
At the end of your meal, your experience ends outside the Pantheon, which will be romantically illuminated in the moonlight.
