Experience Description

A Roman Culinary and Cultural Experience.

Experience the authentic flavors of Rome and deepen your appreciation for its culinary traditions. This event offers a unique opportunity to enjoy exquisite food, explore hidden cultural treasures, and create lasting memories with friends old and new.

The richness of Italian cuisine lies in its simplicity and dedication to high-quality ingredients. Pasta is more than just a staple in the Mediterranean diet; it embodies the very spirit of Italian culinary tradition. In Rome, pasta dishes are celebrated for their simplicity, yet profound flavor, and are a testament to the city’s rich gastronomic heritage. This event is designed to provide participants with an immersive experience, delving deep into the heart of Roman cuisine and culture. It is an evening where history, food, and community converge.

Join us for an extraordinary evening in the charming streets of Rome, specifically Via dei Coronari, one of the city’s most historically rich and visually stunning areas. Our journey will culminate in a traditional Roman tavern, offering a meticulously curated tasting menu that features three of Rome’s most iconic pasta dishes: Cacio e Pepe, Gricia, and Amatriciana. Complemented by a delectable appetizer, fresh bread, and a delightful dessert, this culinary adventure is designed to provide a true taste of Rome.

Our event goes beyond mere dining. It is a guided tour through some of Rome’s lesser-known yet culturally significant landmarks. A poignant stop at the Wall of Dolls—a moving tribute to women who have been victims of violence—adds depth to our journey, fostering reflection and awareness. This thoughtful exploration ensures that our evening is not only about culinary indulgence but also about cultural enrichment.

Nestled in Piazza di San Simeone, within the heart of Via dei Coronari, our selected tavern is surrounded by a rich tapestry of history and charm. Via dei Coronari, historically known as “Via Recta,” beautifully blends medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque elements, showcased through its antique shops and architectural marvels. The nearby Palazzo Lancellotti further enhances the area’s allure, with its grand Renaissance architecture and historical significance. The piazza itself, named after the church dedicated to St. Simeon, and adorned with the majestic Palazzo Lancellotti, serves as a perfect backdrop for our event, steeping it in historical context.

Tasting Menu Highlights

  • Cacio e Pepe: This dish combines Pecorino Romano cheese and black pepper in a simple yet divine manner, highlighting the beauty of minimalism in Italian cuisine.
