Wine pairing isn’t as simple as “white wine with fish, red with meat”. There’s so much more to it, and we want you to come along and learn about the finer nuances of Italian food and wine pairing with us. Marco, our Italian Master Sommelier, guides you through 6 fine Italian wines – from sparkling whites to oaked reds to sweet dessert wine – that you’ll try pairing with everything from Roman pasta dishes to Tuscan meats and real buffalo mozzarella.
You’ll learn how the right wine can enhance even the simplest of dishes (and how the wrong wine can have drastic consequences, too!). Join us for a truly educational dinner from the comfort of a Roman trattoria, which just happens to be slap bang in the centre of town next door to the Spanish Steps – perfect for a post-dinner stroll! Taste your way through Italian food and wines in one delicious evening – one that we think will truly revolutionise the way you look at the art of eating!

A wonderful way to see a unique part of the city and sample terrific food. I’ve taken food tours with this company in Rome and Florence and now Amsterdam. Each tour has been unique and truly outstanding. Our guide Estephen shared interesting information about the Jordaan area and the foods we sampled. Highly recommend!
Extraordinary food is made by extraordinary people. Whenever we find very special food in Rome, we know behind each culinary creation is someone who is very passionate about what they do.
On our tours, you’ll not only taste these delicious treats but you’ll also get a chance to meet the people who prepare them.
Food tastes even better when you know the story behind it.
