Roman Bakery and Pizza
At this stop, learn more the history of bakeries, or forni, in Rome. Get acquainted with a major part of Roman culinary tradition by ordering a hot square of pizza bianca for lunch. In Rome, people line up for these olive oil flat breads stuffed with prosciutto, parmesan and rocket. After you've tasted this treat, you'll understand how pizza need not have sauce or cheese to be delicious. Pizza bianca is a piece of chewy and crispy culinary heaven.
Roman Street Food
Some of the most delicious cuisine in Rome includes quick and casual street food. From deconstructed pizza sandwiches at Trapizzino to traditionally fried filetto di baccala at Dar Filettaro’s near the Campo de' Fiori district, Rome street food is hard to beat. In the spirit of experiencing the joy of Roman street fare, enjoy a stop at one of our favorite local spots.
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].

Food Tour with Monica
We had a delightful time with Monica. We got lost but, thankfully, she waited for us. With the help of some texts from the office we were able to find each other. Monica gave us a good idea of how food evolved in Italy and some of the important elements in good Italian food. We very much enjoyed the evening and learning about some traditional Italian foods and the care with which they are prepared. We made a new friend and had a wonderful time. She is the best and a real five star guide.
Food tour in Rome
We had a great tour in Rome with Merill as our tour guide. We enjoyed the different places that we went to on the tour. We learned a lot about the culture of Italian food.
Our guide was fun and shared wonderful information. We had never been on a food tour and would definitely recommend this to one to someone who has never done one. We had a fun group and very much enjoyed the food and company.
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.
Q: First things first, how much wine do we actually get?
A: 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!
Q: What if I have food allergies, intolerances or other requirements?
A: 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.
Q: Can I bring my kids and do I have to pay for them?
A: 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.
Q: Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?
A: 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.
