This was a great experience with Alessandro. Dinner was excellent and informative. A great way to enjoy a meal and culture in Rome. I would do it again.
It was fantastic to eat in the home of a chef. The food was fabulous. Allesandro and his wife were great hosts. They were very friendly and they went out of their way to make the night great - including allowing us to choose the menu from a wide variety of choices, picking an easy meeting point, and even walking us to the bus stop after the meal to make sure we were able to get back to our hotel.
This host and his wife were wonderful. So warm and sincere. The host was extremely enthusiastic about what he did and you could tell how much he loved entertaining, food and wine. He was knowledgeable and even with the language challenge he did his best to really educate us about the wine and food he was serving. There were 7 people at the table and it made for good conversation. I give it 4 stars only because the food was a little disappointing for me. I was there alone, but there was a group of 4 women traveling together, one was their mother and she had diet restrictions so our host had to cater to her restrictions which made the food bland to me, that is the reason it was a little disappointing to me. I was really looking forward to some very tasty and spicy Italian cuisine.
Alessandro was charming and knowledgeable. The food and white wines were great but the red wine mearly passable. Between our group of four and second group of four, Alessandro was too busy cooking and serving to sit with us nor share any insights about wining and dining in Rome. We was good enough to send an email with some info the next day. All in a all, a pleasant experience.
The food was good, location lovely and Tony and Elena very welcoming. Only issue was that since one person was vegetarian the other person was forced to eat vegetarian too and this was inspite of the fact that we had indicated our dietary preferences well in advance.
Nice setting. Okay food.
