Very authentic
Melinda was like our Italian freind in a very turistic town .
She made us feel the love and tradition of Italian food.
It was one of the best things we have done in Rome.
Thank you

Totally Awesome!
These guys are fantastic, we had the absolute best evening spent learning all sorts of things we never knew even though we've been to Rome many times. Their passion (and knowledge) for their subjects ooooozes out of them and becomes infectious. Our tour guides stared out as amazing guides and ended up as great friends. Cant recommend highly enough!

Don't leave Rome without doing this tour!
My boyfriend and I decided to book this tour for our last day in Rome. We started off the morning on a different tour that was just awful and put us in such a bad mood. However, this tour was so wonderful and it just erased all the bad memories from the morning. Our tour guides were friendly, fun, courteous and SO knowledgeable! We toured some places located off sides streets just a little away from the touristy areas and discovered some amazing food. We got to try some authentic Sicilian pastries, wonderful cheeses, and other foods as well. In between the food we walked to some areas and learned some fascinating facts. To finish the night we had a WONDERFUL dinner. Another thing to mention is that my bf is gluten and lactose intolerant and they accommodated for him and the gluten free bread he tried that night was hands down the best gluten free bread ever. It was warm and fresh out of the oven. I just cannot recommend this tour enough. It was a beautiful way to end our trip to Italy.

5 star experience, said by an Italian
What a real Roman experience. I did this experience with foreign friends (I am Italian) and I have to say that these guys knows what they do. Considering how much amazing food you eat, this experience worth the money you pay. But if you also consider all the hidden gems that you discover during the tour, all the historical information about Rome and the traditions of the people leaving here… well, this tour really goes beyond expectations.
I will try more experiences with Roma Eat when back in town, this is sure.

WOW...CUISINE AND CULTURE AT ITS BEST
Max and his wife entertained us for hours with excellent food, wine and lots of great insights pertaining to Rome and it's culture. Six course meal was so wonderful , very tasty and beautifully presented. This was an unforgettable experience to take back home to the United States complete with pictures. Max picked us up from the hotel and delivered us safely so we would not get lost.
THANK YOU, PHYLIS AND MARY

Max was delightful
We had a great time with Max enjoying a home cooked meal and nice conversation. This was a very different experience that we took a chance on, and it paid off. If you are in Rome and want something unique to do - have dinner with Max!

Awesome Evening!
Had a very delicious, Italian home cooked dinner with Max and his girlfriend. Max selected some great wines for our dinner. Great conversation and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. One of our best meals in Rome!! Definitely a “Must Do” !!!

Fantastic Meal and Evening
Max and his girlfriend were extremely warm and accommodating to my friend and I. Max picked us up and dropped us off at the metro and was right on time. The food was very authentic and nothing short of spectacular. Warning though, there’s a lot of courses and the portions are hearty so pace yourself so you can enjoy everything! The chicken dish, pollo alla cacciatore, was the highlight of the meal. Also, Max’s choice of wine was a fantastic red and we made it through two bottles throughout dinner. These are great people with great stories and food! Can’t recommend dinner at Max’s highly enough. Grazie from Jacob and Claudia!

Perfect last evening in Rome!
My friend and I were visiting from London and wanted to try something new while in Rome. We decided to take the cooking class on the last night of our trip. We were greeted by Francesca's family with open arms and learnt how to make all difference flavour combinations of pizza from scratch, including how to make the perfect dough.

Francesca was a great teacher and we have come away with lots of hints and tips to create the best pizza in Roma :)

Me and my friend took the bus to Francesca's from the City centre and was an easy journey on public transport which was great.

Thank you Francesca and your lovely family for letting us into your home and for teaching us your secrets! We will be hosting many pizza parties at home in your honour, with Italian beer of course! :) x

Don't eat breakfast before the tour
We loved it and told all our friends to do this tour when visiting Rome. Far too much food but our guide was lovely and made the tour really special with her local knowledge and cultural tips.

family pizza perfect
We, father and 14 year old daughter, booked the pizza cooking class & dinner with Francesca and her family the night before and we are so happy we did: it was one of the absolute highlights of our stay in Rome. Francesca was kind enough to arrange transportation (striking bus drivers and no taxi's available) to make the evening possible. We were welcomed by Francesca's lovely parents in their nice apartment and after a brief introduction we set to work: making pizza dough while sharing food stories and having some aperitivos was a great ice breaker and Pino was a very amusing and skilled teacher. We started to make pizza's and had great samples and learned some secret family recipes and ingredients. We set to the table and after about 10 shared pizza's, nice drinks, coffee & dessert we left very inspired. We felt very welcome and had a fabulous evening and have taken on to make pizza's with our own guests now and we always have great success! Thank you Francesca and cari saluti ai tuoi genitori - we hope to be back some day! Maud & Jan

A different side of rome
We were lucky to be the only people on this tour which was booked fora birthday celebration.
We had the local knowledge of our lovely guide to take us through some of the best places for food. This is billed as a tasting tour but in fact was large portions wherever we stopped. The food was delicious highlight being the slow cooked beef pattie and wines plentiful.
We had to stop before completing all the tastings just because we were too full from gelato, cake and pasta. Hoa did an excellent job and she made our trip very special. We could've done with a slightly shorter tour as we were expecting it to last 3 hours and it would have been 4 ½ hrs if we'd done all that was on her list. For anyone concerned about how far you walk it was a gentle walk with lots of stops so very manageable.

Highlight of my time in Rome
Francesca and her family were so kind, and made us feel like we were part of the family! After a long weekend adventuring in Rome, it was exactly the relaxing night we needed to finish our trip off right.

We participated in the Rome food and wine walk. Our guide was Mara. We had a lovely time and Mara was an excellent guide. I would certainly recommend it to my friends and if I can. The only issue for us was the starting time. 10.45 was a bit late to be "breakfasting". By the time we got to the final restaurant we were actually stuffed and perhaps did not do the lunch justice. All three of us consumed less than 10% of what was provided. Despite that, the structure of the walk and places we visited was just right. We returned the following day for lunch at the market.

We have been to Rome numerous times and after seeing just about all of the historical sites we were looking for a different experience. Well, the Savor Italy Tours with Holly is definitely the thing you have to do.
Aside from eating your way through some of the best establishments Rome has to offer, you get the pleasure of Holly who without a doubt is a wealth of knowledge and is just charming. You definitely well not be disappointed or leave being starved.
