Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
Ciao! I am Michela. Paolo and I are friends. I met Paolo a long time ago in Ventotene, a small island in the Mediterranean sea off the western coast of Italy between Rome and Naples. We spent many summers on this remote island sharing a big house with other friends. Paolo used to go fishing with an old local fisherman and, in the evening, he loved to cook fresh fish for all of us. The atmosphere was simple and laid back, good food, wine, music and enthusiasm were the recipes. I am originally from Naples so I have the natural Neapolitan aptitude for hospitality, laughter and conversation! Time has passed. We have decided to re-create that same warm, fun and casual atmosphere here in Rome, in my house in Trastevere. I enjoy cooking traditional Italian cakes and pastries. Paolo has become a professional chef. His search for the best local products is authentic and continuous. His creative dishes shaped on classic italian food are all prepared with top quality local ingredients. Paolo believes that the secret of Italian cooking is simplicity and quality. When in Rome...come and visit us! Food brings people together, it doesn't matter where you come from!

What to expect at Michela & Paolo's place
It takes three ingredients to make an excellent Eatwith experience - hosts, location and great food. Michael and Paulo’s have them all. They are amazing hosts and genuinely warm and welcoming. The apatment is situated in Trastevere which is a very nice neighborhood, and overseeing the river. The food was excellent, real Italian food, from starters to dessert and we had lots of wine. While Paulo was at the kitchen, Michaela was making sure everything is ok at the table. For dessert Michaela prepared an excellent Tiramisu right at the table.
