Elisabeta did an outstanding job curating this tour! She brought us to each locale, explained why it was representative of the fare and what made it exceptional. During these moments history, food and technique were married! There was excellent variety in what we tasted the deli was gorgeous—very old school Italy, the pizza was true Rome especially the Margarita. The Gelato was divine—we went back again. The Suppli came with a recipe which I shall make and all in all the 5 places we experienced at night were perfect. Safety was well managed—masking, distancing, sanitizing all good. Enjoy!

Elisabeth was great! She made us feel really welcome right away. She gave us so much info and answered all our question. I learned a lot and kept thinking how I should have booked this tour right away. The food was excellent and it ended right by the area we wanted to explore. Definitely recommend booking this tour as soon as you get to Rome!

Great thing to do especially at the begging of the trip because you will be more able to recognize great local food through the trip. Guide was amazing and gave us lots of tips on what to try throughout our trip.

Francesca was a great tour guide. She provided excellent explanations of the Roma (not Italian) food selections along with the history of the location. She also provided time to take pictures along the way.

Really great tour of cured meats, pizza, beer and wine, and snacks in Rome. Great guide too.
