I was born in Rome and have lived almost all of my life here. My flat is just a 5 minutes by the car from the Vatican City. It’s furnished in a classic Italian style and has a cosy atmosphere.
I love to cook, especially traditional Roman and Italian dishes, and entertain my friends here, and that’s why you’re more than welcome to join!

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.
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!
