What To Expect

Your evening out in Rome starts at a location near the Pantheon, where you meet your culinary guide and take a brief walk to a family-run restaurant for your memorable dining 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 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. 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 is romantically illuminated in the moonlight.

Great food and host.
Rick_F, Jan 2022
This was a most excellent tour. Our guide was more than exceptional taking time to provide so much interesting information and great conversation. The restaurant was very impressive, both the building, wine cellar and food were outstanding.
Wonderful dinner experience!

Completely over Priced and not a special experience
Linda_C, Sep 2021
Didn't live up to our expectation in any way . A bit lack luster if I'm honest - met by guide in square walked to the restaurant (restaurant not really near the pantheon) - restaurant off the beaten track a little but once inside nothing spectacular at all about it . We stumbled across nicer restaurants ourselves during our stay. We ate at a table with plenty of other diners in the restaurant so not sure what the semi private in description is about . Food ok nothing exciting at all about any of it - zuchini flower in batter/pasta with cheese & pepper then , veal and mash potatoes and a medley of 3 very small desserts each course accompanied with a small glass of wine . Not worth the money at all. We have had much better & nicer meals in other restaurants in Rome that were a lot cheaper - Booked it for a special occasion but it wasn't.
Better than expected
Theodora_G, Jul 2021
From beginning to end the dinning experience was great. Daniela's knowledge and expertise, the ease in which she explained and guided us through each individual part of the food and wine pairing allowed for an amazing evening.
Response from Host, Sep 2021

One of the best evenings in Rome

One of our best evenings in Rome. Such a great venue, guide, restaurant personnel and facilities. Everything was wonderful. I cannot say enough about how good this was. You must do this!

Excellent private dinner and wine tasting
Tracy_W, Feb 2020
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.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Thank you for you lovely review. Happy you saved this memory in you heart. We did it too cheers
Absolutely Worth the Time and Money
Alfonso_K, Feb 2020
It was an amazing experience. it ended up being just us the and the tour guide; who happened to be a relative of the family who owned the restaurant. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Rome and who loves wine with dinner and dessert. Special mention for their braised beef, it was incredibly tender and flavorful. It went extremely well with the red wine they poured infinitely, and even better with the side of mash potatoes.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Dear Kelly, Thank you for your review. I'm sure it will help other nice people to choose this experience. Stay connected with us and have a gourmet-life! Cheers Cheers
Perfect for First Timers in Rome
Moises_L, Jan 2020
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.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you for your nice review.
We Wanted a Group Experience
Jessica Kay R, Jan 2020
We very much wanted to be with a group. It'd be better to be contacted if the experience won't be as described.
Response from Host, Jan 2020
Dear Jessica, generally people are happy about the smaller experience possible. When travelling low season, is possible (even not often for us) to be in a small group. We guarantee all clients bookings from 1 people only even if , as you can imagine, is not convenient for us. This is a point of strenght we believe. If your desire would be to stay in a bigger group you'd contact us priorly to check since group size is from 1 to 10 as advised. Your rating is very poor considering you had a private experience. Cheers
