Are you looking for the best food tour in Rome? Embark on a Trastevere food tour that offers an excellent introduction to some of the best food in Rome. Led by a local foodie guide, visit some of our favorite restaurants and trattorie in Rome. This 3-hour tour includes:

  • An English-speaking food-loving guide

  • Maximum of 12 people per group

  • 4 carefully selected stops with multiple tastings including wine

  • Sit-down dinner at a local Roman restaurant

Roman Salumeria

Your first stop will be at a family-owned Salumeria where you will sample prosciutto, cheese and some local wine. This establishment has been serving the locals for over 100 years, so they definitely know what they are doing. Learn the difference between Parmigiano and Pecorino or Prosciutto and Salame. Wash it all down with some local wine and we are positive you will visit here again before you leave the city to stock up!

Roman Street Food

Many people wonder Baccala is such a popular dish in Rome considering they are not near the Atlantic where the fish comes from. This is why you have joined our tour! Your local foodie guide will go into the fascinating history of this local favorite telling you some amazing anecdotes.

All these stories will be told as you are around the table at one of Rome's most historic restaurants for this delectable fish. Wash it down with some local white wine and you will be licking your fingers. Rome street food is hard to beat.

An Authentic Roman Restaurant

Sit down and relax in a friendly local restaurant and sample an antipasto starter, tastes of two popular Roman pastas, a traditional meat dish, and local wines. No Italian dinner is complete without a digestivo to wash things down, so you'll finish things off with some Limoncello. As opposed to the other stops on this walking food tour in Rome, this is your chance to rest your feet, enjoy your dinner and learn more about what makes the Eternal City so special when it comes to dining. 

The Best Organic Gelato in Trastevere

You didn't think we'd finish a food tour without gelato, did you? If you've been to Italy, regardless of the time of year, you'll know how important it is to end the evening with a gelato. Learn how to spot good quality gelato from ones with additives and try some new flavors. From caffè to fragola to pistacchio, there's a gelato flavor for everyone. 

There is plenty of food to fill up even the above average eater on this tour. If you have food allergies or dietary restrictions, it’s important we know so we can do our best to accommodate them. Please email us immediately after you book and we will make notes so your guide knows. If you'd like to be certain before booking or have any questions, email us at [email protected].

Fantastico!

The Trastevere food tour was the BEST! Our guide, Francesca, was so delightful, friendly, fun, informative and overall just a great host for our tour of special local places. We loved hearing the stories of the food and shops, some of which have been in Rome for many years run by family members. Everything we had was delicious, and we felt that we were really living like locals, going to their favorite places. We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting a true Roman local experience. (And we couldn't eat another bite!)

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

Piazza Farnese - by the fountain on the right (when facing Palazzo Farnese). A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.

What to bring?

Come hungry and wear comfortable shoes, you'll be on your feet walking between tasting stops.

Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?

Stops and tastings on this tour are subject to change due to seasonal/holiday venue closures. As the places we frequent on this Rome Food Tour are local institutions and family-run businesses, they can close at any time with very little to no notice. In this situation, your guide will take you to another nearby eatery. If you have any doubts about your mobility, we recommend you look at our Private Rome Tourselection.

Can I bring my kids and do I have to pay for them?

If your child is under 6 years of age and will not be eating during the tour, you do not need to pay for them. If they will be eating please select the 'youth' category before checkout and add them to your group in order to save them a seat at the dinner table.

What if I have food allergies, intolerances or other requirements?

Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs. We will work with our collaborators to provide you an alternative when possible.

First things first, how much wine do we actually get?

We promise at least 3 glasses, but in many places, it is served by the carafe which is the typical family style way in Rome. In this case, you can probably drink more, but don't overdo it!

What to bring?

Come hungry and wear comfortable shoes, you'll be on your feet walking between tasting stops.
