Simply put - do not miss this tour! Our first night in Rome was perfection with this tour. Jess was wonderful at educating and entertaining us as we learned about the food of Italy. This was super at helping us for the rest of our trip with how we ordered and what we ate. The evening included cheeses, pizza, meats, pasta, gellato, wine and lots of laughter! Our group of twelve was perfect in size. So fun! So tasty!
Great tour around a residential area near the Vatican. Enough food for dinner spread over 5 places.
My husband and I did this tour our first evening in Rome, and it was tremendous! Raluca, our guide, was absolutely delightful, super informative and very knowledgeable about what we were tasting, in a very relaxed atmosphere. The walking part was very easy and not the least bit strenuous. The food samples were terrific and great to have a taste of the food that makes the region famous - all accompanied with wine. The appetizers were enough for a taste, the pizza was heavenly, the home-made pasta super good, and the gelato was amazing. Highly recommended and could not have imagined a better way to spend the evening.
My favorite tour, you could tell the guide loved food and her job.
Highlight of our ROME trip. MUST DO!!!! We were lucky to have Laluca as our food guide. She is charming, funny, informative and the food was all out of this world!!!! Perfect in every single way!!!! I repeated, MUST GO!!!!! try to engage Laluca if you can!
This was a tour we did on our first night in Rome. Best thing we could have done. The guideJess was awesome, she knows her stuff and really seems to enjoy what she does. There is no shortage of food and the time spent at each place was perfect. I did this tour with my 11 year old daughter and she thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Highly recommend.

What is not to love - there's wine, food and walking around in the cool evening!! We met our tour guide at the Cipro metro station - actually we took a taxi there. There were eight in our group - small and comfortable. We were lucky to get a really good group so it made
conversations easy and interesting. We walked to two different local shops to try various combinations of appetizers- antipastos - cured meats and cheeses with wine parings. Then it was time to get serious about the food. We next went to a pizzeria. The pizza chef is world famous and has been on cooking shows in Europe and the States. There were numerous pizzas with various, unusual, creative toppings. We each chose two pizzas then the group all shared the different toppings. They put the pizza slices in the oven for a few minutes so the crust and edges were so crispy and good. Then we walked to a family restaurant for dinner. We were all already pleasantly full of good cheeses, meats and pizza! We were treated to gnocchi and ravioli- all handmade by the chef who came to our table to speak with us. This was followed by fresh hot fried calamari. And of course two types of wine. Then our guide asks if we are ready for dessert! Seriously? We were all so stuffed we would barely move. But when in Rome ....... So we went to the gelato shop! We each chose two flavors and savored away. . . Our tour guide was excellent. She came from Romania to go to college but discovered Italian food and knew she had found her calling. She was very knowledgeable and definitely loved Italian food. I learned so much about where foods are produced and why certain symbols and stamps are necessary on the food. It was very educational as well as a delicious way to eat my way through this quiet family district of Rome away from all the tourist noise and hustle. I so wish I could take this tour again- right now or tomorrow. Yummy. . . .

This was even better than I ever expected !!! Our tour guide was Jess. She gave us SO much information about the food we were eating. The food and wine was all exceptional ! I highly recommend this tour. If you like pizza, cheese, pasta, you will love it !!!!!! A do not miss tour in Rome.
As a budget conscious traveler I was hesitant to sign up for this tour for my husband and myself. However, I'm glad I did. It was a dinner party with strangers that turned into a fun, delicious, and very informative moveable feast. Our guide Jess led ten of us to six eateries whose owners take great pride in their food. You will learn a lot and have more than enough food and wine to drink. Most memorable? The potato and cheese pizza from Bonci, but it was all good! Jess was a wonderful guide.
We had a group of 6 friends all do this tour with Raluca. She was awesome! She was so informative and fun. We did this tour on our first night in Rome, which was so nice because it taught us so much that we kept in mind for the remainder of our trip. We went to a lot of places and had different wonderful food at each place. It was all so so good! I would highly recommend this tour and would love to do it again! :
We were so looking forward to this as the highlight of our trip to Rome and it was! Jessica Rojas was amazing - fun, informative, knew the local neighborhood and we felt welcome and adventurous at the same time. It was terrific!
Unbelievable tour and one of my best experiences in Rome. I have been on many food tours in different cities but this one was the most memorable led by a vivacious, charming and very caring guide!

This is a must do in Rome! The Prati District, the location of the tour, is a community that has fantastic restaurants, specialty shops, pizza, and gelato. Our guide, Raluca, is an enthusiastic foodie and a delight. She took us to amazing places to sample pizza, gelato, pasta, prosciutto. Raluca's interest in Italian cuisine, knowledge in its history, and goal to make our tour a fun, delicious experience was exceptional.
My husband and I did this tour our first night in Rome and totally enjoyed the experience. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. Food was great and we were so full by the end of the night. Highly recommend
We loved this tour. Our guide, Raluca, was both entertaining and informative. The food was amazing and the sit down dinner with our multi-national group was engaging. We really felt like we got to be Italian for a night!
Amazing tour guide and food! The experience was one our favorite parts of our entire trip. I would highly recommend this to tour.
Great way to learn about the food and culture. Our Guide, was top notch!!!
Fantastic waling tour, excellent local guide amazing food experience.

Tour guide - Jessenia Jess hosted by Roman Food Tour - This tour is fantastic. We visited 5 different locations getting the all inclusive appetizer to dessert menu. The guide - Jess was informative and she made the tour a success.
Excellent. Food was great, and the guide was very enthusiastic, and very informative.
If you are visiting Rome, you must first go on this tour. Our tour guide Ralucca was awesome and gave us great tips about the quality and what to look for when deciding to choose a decent restaurant. The food we had was a great experience and the hosts greeted us with open arms. My friends and I are still talking about it.
Jessenia is THE best tour guide ever!! This tour was just brilliant - we learned so much from Jessenia about cured meats, cheeses, pizza, gelato, wines and pasta - I know so much more about what is 'real' Italian food, and the places we visited were so much fun. We did the 5.30pm tour which was good because it was sunset and we had a lovely dinner. It was easy walking and Prati is a really nice little district. This tour was my favourite thing in Rome because of how much I learned - thank you Jessenia!!
