What to expect at Claudia & Francesco's place
The dinner with Claudia and Francesco was delicious featuring the superb selection of Sicilian dishes and wines. What made it even more enjoyable, was the intellectually stimulating conversation in their beautifully decorated and furnished flat. It’s great to meet the people on the other side of the world, who literally “speak your language”, whose warmth, kindness, and knowledge of great Italian, Sicilian, and European history and culture, made the dinner the unforgettable event.
Claudia is charming and genuine and we loved every minute of our tour.
Simply the best. If you have a chance to share a meal with Claudia and Francesco, do it! 5 stars is an understatement. They are gracious hosts in a beautifully furnished home. The food is extraordinary, the table was set beautifully and the wine was paired expertly with the meal. But especially, we appreciated spending an evening with such interesting and lovely people. Claudia and Francesco, thank you for an unforgettable experience and a glimpse into real Roman and Sicilian life.
