"It was a great tour of the various culinary delights of Rome. Our guide Giuliano led us on an entertaining tour in localities that we alone would not have found. We tasted smoothies, pizza, espresso, pasta and gelato in small original Roman family shops. For lovers of traditional Italian cuisine! A Tip: Good English skills are an advantage."

Rated: 4/5 - English-speaking tour with good information about Italian food

"On May 5th we met our guide Giuliano at piazza Mattei for a fantastic 3 hour eating tour through the very centre of Rome. Delicious food in places that we had certainly not found by ourselves. From the memorable pizza slices of different kinds, oven baked at Campo di Fiori and eaten at the benches in front of Palazzo Farnese with Chinotto to drink, to finally the delicious Granita and gelato. Everything was excellent. During this 3 hour walk Giuliano also gave us a very knowledgeable historic lesson of both modern and antique Rome. Thanks to Giuliano this was a perfect end of our short week in Rome. We will come back again and again."

"On May 1st I took this tour with the very good and nice guide Giuliano! After meeting us at Piazza Mattei, Giuliano explained that many restaurants & cafes were closed due to it being May 1st. We started the tour, and what a tour! Fantastic, informative, joyous and tasty (even if some places were closed). We had a wonderful four hours with Giuliano - history, good talks, tasty bites to eat and drinks too - Thank you!"
