Meet your guide in Campo de’ Fiori in front of Ristorante La Carbonara for this small group food and wine tasting tour of Rome. Explore the city center, passing vibrant cafes and buskers, while listening to your guide sharing stories of Roman food and history. The first stop is for classic aperitivo, including wine and artisan salami. Learn about the salami’s protected geographical indication, or PGI, an important element of food in Italy. Taste more PGI products at a charming cheese shop, then sample the traditional Roman dish of baccalà fritto, or fried salt cod, pizza ordered by the slice, and supplì, fried risotto balls. After a short walk to Trastevere, settle into a cozy restaurant for a light dinner. Snack on traditional Roman antipasto and two primi, or first course dishes, alongside two different types of wine. The final stop is a gelateria where you taste rich, creamy gelato in the flavor of your choice.

We went to 7 different places and were truly stuffed by the end. It was a great way to eat and try food I otherwise wouldn't have ordered myself.

The gelato spot was not great but other than that the food was delicious. The pasta with pig cheeks was a highlight.

I can't remember our guide's name but he was from Germany and learned Italian and lives just outside of Rome. He was great; very informative and entertaining.

9 of us met up, different nationalities and most were couples, for an evening to try different restaurants and italian food and drink. It was good fun, good food and wine. However it felt a bit rushed, I think this was t because there was a tight schedule to get around the booked restaurants.

Extremely disappointing. Our guide did not introduce herself and did not appear interested in giving us any history of the areas we were walking through or why we were tasting the specific foods. She appeared to be casually strolling through the tour waiting for it to be over. I wish we knew her name so we could warn everyone not to request her. We could have easily spent the money on an exquisite dinner for three somewhere else. Would not recommend!

I do food tours in almost every country I visit and I was so looking forward to this one! I thought - with all the amazing food in Rome, how could one go wrong? The tour guide was one of the worst I’d ever experienced, speaking with far more enthusiasm about his homeland of Albania. One of the other guests finally asked - are you secretly working for a tourism group of Albania? He even was showing YouTube videos for Albania on his phone during dinner! The walking layout was insanely ill planned (crossing over the same piazza 3 times!), the food was mediocre at best and again, the guide made no effort to make the group feel cohesive or enthusiastic. Absolutely not worth the $$$ :(

I highly recommend the Food and Wine Tasting tour in Rome. We saw places and
neighborhoods we might have missed. Tasted different Roman foods at authentic
places. Our tour guide was fabulous - knowledgable and friendly !!
Excellent follow through concerning food allergies.

Overall the food we tasted was good but or tour guide was not good. I wish I could tell you her name but she didn’t give it to us.
She did little to describe the the food and less to describe the wine . We have taken several walking tours and our guide gave us no information on Rome or it’s neighborhoods.
Our guide seemed bored and disinterested.
You can find better or do a self guided tour.

Wow, this was a great tour! Alma was a fantastic guide. I'd not only book this tour again, but I'd book any Rome tour she was leading. I visited Rome with my father- this was our first "food tour"- and the bar has been set high! The food experience was wonderful...so much food! It was also cool getting to speak with the others on the tour- by the end, everyone seemed to have enjoyed each other's company.

What a memorable experience! We met Ian, our tour guide in beautiful Piazza Campo de' Fiori. (Get there earlier to wander around.) We started our tour with delicious cheese and Prosecco. We then had deep fried Baccala and wine while standing in the piazza and then to the back room of another shop for salami and more wine. After the first 3 courses, we headed out for pizza and Suppli (delicious). After being stuffed, we then sat down for dinner! Our dinner began with a deep fried zucchini flower stuffed with cheese and anchovy. We then had two different pastas, wine and bread. Everything was delicious. We could not finish all of the food that was on the table. We ended our sit down dinner with a digestif after dinner drink. Our tour ended at a Gelato shop where we could sample two flavors! We were all completely stuffed. Everyone in our group had a blast. We met a lot of great people during this tour. I would highly recommend this tour!
