Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your evening out in Rome starts at a location near the Pantheon, where you meet your culinary guide and take a brief walk to a family-run restaurant for your memorable dining experience in the Italian capital.

When you arrive, meet the owners of the restaurant, aficionados of traditional Italian wine and cuisine, and then head down to the restaurant’s private cellar. Take in the unique ambience of the cellar, where an old Roman structure was discovered at the floor level during renovation work in the area, and take part in the Italian pre-dinner custom of an aperitivo—a cocktail or glass of wine (in this case, you receive a glass of prosecco) enjoyed with a selection of regional cheese and cured meat.

Then head back up to the elegant dining room, sitting down at your reserved table for your 3-course dinner of Roman-style dishes. Each course is paired with a fine regional wine selected by the chef and guide to enhance the flavors of both the food and vino.

At the end of your meal, your experience ends outside the Pantheon, which is romantically illuminated in the moonlight.

It was an amazing experience. it ended up being just us the and the tour guide; who happened to be a relative of the family who owned the restaurant. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Rome and who loves wine with dinner and dessert. Special mention for their braised beef, it was incredibly tender and flavorful. It went extremely well with the red wine they poured infinitely, and even better with the side of mash potatoes.

Excellent experience. Daniela was very knowledgeable about both food and the area. It was a great way to start off the week in Rome with insider information on where to eat and what to see. Would recommend this experience to anyone.

We Wanted a Group Experience

We very much wanted to be with a group. It'd be better to be contacted if the experience won't be as described.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Dear Jessica, generally people are happy about the smaller experience possible. When travelling low season, is possible (even not often for us) to be in a small group. We guarantee all clients bookings from 1 people only even if , as you can imagine, is not convenient for us. This is a point of strenght we believe. If your desire would be to stay in a bigger group you'd contact us priorly to check since group size is from 1 to 10 as advised. Your rating is very poor considering you had a private experience. Cheers

This was a wonderful evening! Martina, our guide, was fabulous. She made everyone feel as if they were "home". We were 8 people in all (including Martina). The food was absolutely delicious, and the pairings were great as well. I very highly recommend this.

Martinam was a very gracious and engaging tour guide. We experienced 1st wine and appetizers in an old wine cellar that contains one of the best wine collections in Rome. Dinner was served upstairs in an elegant but relaxed setting (casual dress was just fine). Wine and food pairings were outstanding! Highly recommend this tour over finding fine-dining experience on your own.
