The Italian AperitivoAn aperitivo (or apéritif) is often compared to an American happy hour, but it’s much more than that! A light meal and drink that takes place at the end of the workday, this tradition is designed to whet your appetite before dinner. Tuck into some tasty cheese and cold cuts, including fresh and juicy mozzarella di bufala. Paired with some of the best local wine, this is an excellent opportunity to get to know your fellow visiting foodies and guide.
Filetti di Baccalà Continue your Rome food tour at one of our favorite hidden gems in Trastevere. Once inside the restaurant, with a second glass of wine in hand, taste a popular Roman street food. Baccalà, or salted codfish, is a local favorite dish. Crisp on the outside and light and flakey on the inside, this is an excellent snack to grab on the go.
The Best Roman PizzaIt's impossible to come to Italy and not eat pizza. Stop for some Roman pizza or
pizza al taglio (cut to go). The Italian version of fast food,
pizza al taglio is a popular way to grab a bite to eat on the run. Unlike pizza you order in a sit-down restaurant,
pizza al taglio has a thin, crunchy crust. Once you learn how to order it, this type of pizza is an excellent staple for the rest of your trip to Rome.
Dinner at a Local Roman RestaurantAn evening food tour in Rome isn’t complete without a stop for an authentic Roman dinner. Sit down and relax in a friendly local restaurant and sample two popular Roman pasta plus some antipasti selections. Wash it down with even more delicious wine. Relax and soak up more Roman culture over dinner. Ask questions, get recipes, enjoy.
The Best Gelato in RomeYou didn't think we'd finish a food tour without
gelato, did you? If you've been in Italy, regardless of the time of year, you know how important it is to end each evening with a gelato. But not all gelato will do! Learn how to spot a good one from one with additives.
