Out off the beaten paths, we will taste some amazing "Biscotti" from the oldest grocery shop or bakery of the area, and if we are lucky we will find the super rare "Limonella", a lemon cake considered the great grandmother of the cheescake.

This tour was absolutely fantastic and… sweet! I can’t recommend it enough. Our guide was so knowledgeable, engaging and could help us a lot. We loved it so much we booked the daily experience for the next day. It made our trip in Rome so memorable and enjoyable. Loved it so much. A must do! Highly recommended.
“A family tour” I joined the tour with my wife and two kids. Considering the price, that is not too high compared to other tours I did, we decided to book the food also for the kids (9 and 4 years old) even if they usually do not eat that much, and… It ended up with them eating also our food!!! Everything was superb, but the tiramisù was the best. Especially because… You will eat it in one bite (no spoiler, but there is a surprise on how it is served). One hour and half of pure pleasure
Amazing experience!
Tiramisù in a cup of chocolate: AMAZING” I am a tiramisù lover and the small tiramisù served in a cup of chocolate is something I will not forget! Almost two hours tasting different sweets and listening to really interesting and funny stories about Rome. I appreciated that the guide, Selene, is a real local and also an archeologist (but she said all the team are archeologist). We were in a relatively small group, with 5 other people, and the organization was perfect. Selene took care of every aspect and all the tastings were well organized
Lovely, lovely, lovely!!!
So happy to have found this experience! The sweet treats were amazing, but the tour and all the insider information we got, was even better! This was the first thing we did while in Rome and I’m so glad, now we have a staring point and some great recommendations on things to try and places to go back and explore more. Having these guys as guides felt like we were meeting up with some old friends and catching up rather then being lead around by strangers. They are passionate and love what they are doing and it absolutely shows. We can’t wait to come back and do one of the other tours Roma Eat (check out their website) provides! Thank you so much!
