  • Must try food in Rome Italy?

    Between the trinity of pasta to ‘cucina povera’ and offal (‘quinto quarto’) plates, there are many must try-foods in Rome. This also applies to vino. Some typical Roman dishes and recipes are coda alla vaccinara (oxtail stew), baccala (salted cod fish), saltimbocca (veal, prosciutto, and sage), porchetta (a savory pork roast), suppli (the Roman equivalent of the Sicilian arancini, known by Italian Americans as a rice ball)…the list of delicious food in Rome goes on and on. But this is Italy, so the availability of the ingredients, food, and dishes all really depend on the season.
  • What food is Rome Italy known for?

    The three most popular pasta dishes in Rome are without a doubt: cacio e pepe, carbonara, and l’amatriciana. The most famous vegetable dish in which there are two types are: Carciofi alla Romana (steamed Roman-style artichoke) and Carciofi alla Giudia (the fried Jewish-style version) are both equally delicious. Other vegetables you must try are cicoria (chicory) and puntarella. And for dessert – gelato or tiramisu. As for wine, Cesanese for red and Pecorino for white is the most common that can be found in the Lazio wine region of Rome. Other wines you may see on the menu include Merlot and Syrah. Much of the house wine comes from Frascati, the Castelli Romani town nearby Rome, which is the most famous wine region of Lazio.
  • Is food expensive in Rome Italy?

    Generally speaking food is not very expensive in Rome, especially compared to other major cities in Italy and Europe. While Rome does have some great high-end and fine dining options, you can find really great food at a very reasonable price at the less formal restaurants such as a trattoria, osteria and even enotecas. But keep in mind that not every establishment in Rome is authentic even if it looks it. Like all international cities drawing in visitors from around the world, beware of tourist traps which usually means overpriced, mediocre food.

Highlite of trip to italy
This was our favorite tour. It may have been our thoroughly enjoyable guide or the great group of people who just happen to be on our tour. What fun we had going from eatery to eatery sampling a different course of food at each, and at each we had yet another glass of wine. Did we say "sample"? We were so full by the end of the tour, there were no complaints among us. During the course of the evening, our group realized how much we were enjoying the company. When our guide bid us goodbye, one of our group suggested we continue the evening together and off we went to yet another restaurant for at least another round of drinks. That night was one of the most memorable of our 24 nights in Italy.

This tour was a nice way to see a particular part of Rome. Our guide was great fun which helped us to gel as a group. The tasters were of good quality and variety and the wine was very nice too. The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact that in one place we were served our wine in a glass tumbler and in another place it was served in a plastic cup! That was a shame because I felt it cheapened the experience. However, we had a really good time with some lovely people from other countries.

Was eigenlijk niet zo duidelijk wat ervan te verwachten. Uiteindelijk was het een groep van 19 personen. We hebben in het begin tweemaal vrijwel hetzelfde stukje gelopen. Daar zou ik nog eens naar kijken. De gids was erg vriendelijk en gaf veel uitleg. De wijn op alle plekken wordt gul geschonken. Je kwam niets tekort. Op het einde zijn ook 4 gerechten genuttigd bij hetzelfde restaurant. Daar zou misschien ook nog een andere verdeling in gemaakt kunnen worden. De gerechten waren goed en je komt op een paar plaatsen waar je anders niet zo vlug naar binnen zou stappen. Eigenlijk vindt ik dit wel een aanrader om een stedentrip mee te beginnen. Wel ben je erg afhankelijk van de gids om hier een positieve ervaring van te maken zoals gelukkig in deze situatie het geval was.

This the second time we took the tour. We liked the changes made and the guide was very good.

Vi var 6 stycken som häromdagen var i Rom och gick den 4 timmar långa mat och vinturen. Allt var väldigt gott. Det bjöds på mycket mat och vin. Hade dock önskat lite mer info om maten och drycken. Vi är ändå nöjda med turen.

Trevlig kvällsaktiviteter. Man kunde verkligen känna in folklivet i Rom. Lagom långa sträckor att förflytta dig på.

AMAZING. Food and wine were delicious. Our guide, Marcello, was great and knowledgeable!! I would highly recommend!
Aidan - 14/06/2019 21:06
Masser af god mad og en helt masse vin! Jeg blev ihvertfald ret fuld Men dejligt selskab og sjove steder at besøge, dog synes jeg at prisen var lidt dyr. Køb i god tid, og husk at komme til tiden, altid irriterende at skulle vente på nogen Hvis du rejser alene kan du sagtens tage på turen, det gjorde jeg og mødte en masse søde mennesker
Jessica - 14/06/2019 15:17
Amazing tour, fun night! Our guide marcello was so much fun and gave us great information about the city and the areas we visited. Had lots of good food and wine! My only issue... too much food! I couldn’t finish my delicious pasta at the end! Great time with the other members of our tour.
