What you'll do

Join a local host who is a foodie like yourself and enjoy a meal at a classic trattoria or osteria, where you can taste the traditional dishes that locals really love and learn about Italian food culture.Read more +

Get off the tourist trail and ditch the tourist menus to discover a restaurant that serves authentic dishes, using fresh and seasonal ingredients and classic recipes, so you can get a taste of the real Rome. 

Enjoy a traditional meal with your local, try Roman specialties and eat like an Italian, starting with a pasta like the perfect carbonara or amatriciana for primo and saltimbocca, roast veal or some artichokes if they are in season for secondo. Or why not let you Local Host order a local dish you may never have heard of?

Slow down and take the time to immerse yourself in the local food culture, discovering a restaurant that’s loved by locals where you’ll see just how passionate Romans are about their food, and sip a glass of wine while you can discover the dishes that the city is renowned for.

Spend time getting to know your Local Host, chat about your favourite foods and get some insider recommendations for the best local places to eat for the rest of your trip. 


What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you. 

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary based on your literary loves, and to agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary. 

Although this is a food and drink themed experience, your Local Host will also help you to discover unique shops, inspiring places and independent galleries as well as sharing stories that you won’t find in a guidebook, and make the city unique.
