Did a private food tour in Trastevere in Rome (Four Roman Pastas) - we had a wonderful time, learned a lot about italian pastas and cooking, and couldn't say enough about Benny - she was a great person and guide!

We tend to avoid tours whenever possible but with private craft beer and pizza tasting seemed too unique and interesting to pass on. We brought our 2 year old with us and the entire experience was perfect. Local Aromas was very flexible with finding a tour time that worked for us and the communications and meeting spot were perfect. We toured with Eric, who was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He was great with our child and made sure we all had a great experience. Even making a bonus stop so our son could get gelato! The restaurants he picked served great pizza and beer and Eric helped you make selections and gave some helpful tips along the way. Also offered great information for other things we can do while in Rome. If you like pizza and beer, do not pass on this tour!

Local Aromas is the best of the best. The family brings Rome and Roman cuisine to life in such interesting, knowledgeable, and imaginative ways. When in Rome, time with Local Aromas is time very well spent.

This was an amazing experience. At first I was skeptical, especially being alone, however once I arrived inside the apartment, my mind was immediately put at ease. I was supposed to be cooking in a group of 8, with another couple and a family. However, with a last minute cancellation, there were only 3 of us, with our chef and host. We began with some Prosecco, and tiramisu in order to allow it to set. Then we moved on to ravioli and gnocchi. The views of the Vatican were amazing during the entire class, where we worked in the kitchen overseeing the dome. With such a small group, we were able to spread out, but regardless, both our host and chef were welcoming, answered lots of questions, and continued to wine and dine us. We sampled olive oils and salts in between cooking courses. When the final touches were being put on our plates, we were escorted into the dining room, over looking the sunset on the other side of the apartment to relax and enjoy more sparkling wine. The food was exquisite, and so filling! What a perfect end to my Italian journey. Thank you Local Aromas!

I took the group cooking class on Valentine's Day, and I am so glad that I did. Carla and Giulia welcomed me with open arms, and were great hosts, chefs and photographers. I do not cook at home, but I loved the class, and the other two couples were lovely. The view from the location is absolutely exquisite. The cooking instruction is clear and easy, but the recipes are also sophisticated and delicious. After we cooked, we were led into a candlelit room to enjoy our dinner. Wine is served throughout. :-) By the time the class ended, I felt like I had 6 new friends. Carla and Giulia also recommended locations for a birthday party for my mother, and helped me find a cab to a party I had to attend after the class. If you want to do something authentic in Rome (even as a solo traveler), schedule this first, and plan everything else around this. Also, Local Aromas will send you restaurant recommendations and a recap of the recipes. Until next time!
