Description

Eat like a local and feel like a Roman with us on this unique evening adventure that will allow you to discover the historical center of Rome, away from the tourist crowds!

This tour will give you the chance to enjoy more than 15 food and wine tastings, all "seasoned" with storytelling about our city’s amazing history and culture.

You’ll drink a typical Roman "aperitivo" in an historic bar owned by the same family for 150 years.

In the narrow streets of Campo de Fiori, you’ll taste mouth-watering Cannoli and have exclusive access to the last traditional family grocery shop of the area where you’ll eat cheese and salami paired with a local wine.

You’ll be given a glimpse of Roman street food, with the pizza "al taglio" in an ancient bakery opened in 1880.

Then it will be time for a seated meal in a cosy restaurant where you’ll feast on traditional bruschetta and the best Carbonara in town, cooked by a Michelin Star Chef!

We will finish with a toast of a homemade limoncello, created with love and passion, as well as some Tiramisù for dessert.

If you want to enjoy the deliciousness of life – join us!

Wonderful night of food and fellowship
We take a food tour in about every town that we visit and this Rome food tour was exceptional. We talked and tasted food, learned a bit about the history of Rome and had a wonderful time exploring the city at twilight. Definitely a tour to do within the first couple of nights in Rome as you will leave with more places that you need to explore. Just make sure you go on an empty stomach because you will need the room!
I cried during the cheese tasting...in a good way...
We were in Rome for 3 days this past July and decided to book this tour last minute, the morning of our tasting. Like a Local Guide was able to confirm the reservation by the afternoon. We met Stefano at a local family owned restaurant that had been a part of the family for 150 years. We started with a glass of wine and a local sparkling beverage for my mother and my sister as they were not drinking. Stefano was very knowledgable about Rome and Roman history. We went to places that I would not have gone into on my own.
My favorite part was the cheese tasting. I have a soft spot for cheese and wine in general and we went to this local cheese shop. The owners were so kind to let us come into their store. Stefano had a map of Italy and as we tasted the different cheeses, he talked about the region they came from. The owner let us try this soft blue cheese that was out of this world. Maybe it was the heat (we went during the heat wave), maybe it was the wine, maybe it was the passion with which the Stefano and the owner were discussing the cheeses, but it literally brought tears of gratitude to my eyes. An excellent way to spend the evening that I would not have been able to do on my own.

Gratitude, love, and light!

THE MOST AMAZING TOUR OF ROME
Real insight into Italian lives and Roman way of living, beautifully told history of the city in the context, delicious food and plenty of it, warm and exciting tour guide, hack and advice for life when it comes to food! Great value for money, responsible when it comes to disposable single issue plastic. Would recommend it to anyone! Loved it to bits, now I seek it in other cities.
A Treasure!!
This was an AMAZING experience. The guide was so knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person! They take us to hand picked places mostly family run and have been around for almost 80-90 years and are authentic to what they are doing. We did a bit of cheese tasting, meat, Olive oil tasting (so good), local jams (got four flavours for myself and it was home made), bruschetta, pizza, lunch with some really nice red wine and gelato . Every single stop was totally worth it. If you are in Rome and if you are a foodie you HAVE to take this tour! Thank you for the incredible food journey!!
