Local Roman Culture & Cuisine
Local Expert Foodie Guide
While a sit-down meal of creamy carbonara accompanied by copious amounts of Sangiovese is more likely associated with the best Italian fare, street food is nothing to sneeze at. 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.
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.
If you have any doubts about your mobility, we recommend you look at our Private Rome Tour selection.

Our guide Cristiana was very knowledgeable and great fun. The food and wine at each stop was lovely and I was lucky to join such a great group of people on the tour, so great that we spent the rest of the evening together! I would not have found the places we visited without the tour and would definitely go back to them again for a meal. This is the second time I have used The Roman Guy and would definitely recommend them...more

She led us through the streets, ristorantes, and trattorias of Trastevere allowing us to try some of the most delectable pieces of cheese, meat, and other types of some of the best foods that Rome has to offer.
Along the way,she provided fun lessons about the history behind the foods that we were eating - stories ranging from the origins of various dishes to tales of papal vanity and a secret love for deep fried cod.
And of course, there was also plenty of wine. There was a sign written in English in one of restaurants we went to. It said, "A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine."
It was most apropos.
If you think you already know all you need to know about Italian food, think again. These restaurants were mostly unknown to the vast majority of tourists, and they served dishes that will likely be different to even some of the snobbiest foodies among us.
At the end, you'll leave the tour feeling like you've learned something, full, a little tipsy, and, most importantly, happy.
Yes, there are already so many things to see and do in Rome, and you likely don't have enough time (or money) to do them all. But I encourage you to give this food tour a try. Your taste buds will certainly thank you...more
Christiana was a wonderful tour guide she was very knowledgeable about Rome, food and wine! We had a great night!

We startd out with antipasto and ended with an excellent 2 course meal in a charming non-touristic Osteria on the other side of the river. Elena was a great guide to the food as well as to the city as we walked from place to place. This was a very nice experience for us...more
