Within our Rome food tours you will discover the flavors of Lazio and its capital Rome, through a tasty walk in the typical surrounding of Trastevere (please check also our Trastevere food tour), featuring colorful alleys and ancient artisanal boutiques. You will discover the old recipes of the city and enter into the beating heart of Italian capital, escorted by a local food expert!
Our Rome food tours presents several food stops and each dish is served in a different restaurant or food shop. We will begin with an ‘aperitivo’ of Roman cheeses and a glass of wine. Then we will have traditional must-have such as Roman supplì, the white pizza, baked pork meat (the famous ‘porchetta’). Finally we will get pasta with carbonara sauce. You will learn how to make the real pasta with carbonara sauce and we will play together the “Gioco dell’Ova” (Eggs game), with tastings of unusual and gourmet preparations like caviar and oysters.
As a sweet goodbye, finally we will have a cone of the best artisanal gelato in the area.
Riccardo, Sofia, Chiara & Alexia, your local experts, are all born in Rome, they love their city and want to share their passion with you!
See the menu
Hand-made bisquits crunchy biscuits, with simple ingredients and an unforgettable taste! We will taste them in an old cookie's factory from 1920.
Artisanal cheese tasty local cheeses that change according to season and producers’ choices, made with raw milk and prepared according to natural techniques. All of this and much more accompanied by registered wines and selected according to local excellence.
White pizza unique of its kind, it is a delicacy that can be found only in Rome! The capital’s masterpiece of street food, its apparently simple dough is impossible to replicate if the recipe is not known. Typically tasted warm in the late morning.
Porchetta pork meat, baked in the oven usually served along with the white pizza. It is spicy and perfect if served warm.
Supplì rice ball with meat sauce or other typical garnishments such as cheese and black pepper. They feature a crunchy crust and are deep fried: this is a must try!
Pasta alla carbonara intense flavour, typical from Rome and prepared with Italian bacon, pecorino cheese and black pepper. Hint: international carbonara is different from the traditional Italian one! We will taste it in one of the most important Gourmet restaurants in Rome and we will learn how to make it with the chef!
Artisanal ice cream one of the best in town prepared with natural ingredients and presented in innovative and stunning flavours.
