Welcome to Rome!
Your Italian food and wine-tasting experience begins in the enchanting Piazza della Minerva. While small compared to Rome's other sprawling squares, the Piazza della Minerva is renowned for its proximity to the Pantheon and unique blend of Roman history and detailed architecture. The square's small size also makes it easy to find your guide and fellow group members. After a quick meet and greet, you'll walk a short distance to a stunning Renaissance building.
Wander to Casa Bleve
Your destination is the family-run Casa Bleve restaurant, and we promise it'll be hard to decide what is most impressive–the beauty of the 15th-century building it's set in or the delicious smells wafting out its doors. Luckily, you won't have to choose between these delights; instead, you'll be met with a warm welcome from Tina, the chef and 'mamma' in the kitchen, and her son Alessandro.
Take a moment to admire the imposing Roman structure on the cellar floor, the building's secret passages to the history of Rome, and the surrounding buildings in the heart of the Sant'Eustachio district. Then, settle in for a memorable night of wining and dining.
An Unforgettable Dining Experience
Your culinary journey begins with a welcome aperitif on the stunning cellar floor. Toast to the start of an incredible evening while soaking up your surroundings and be sure to take a closer look at the wall, made entirely of square work, before heading back up to the street level.
You'll then be treated to a seasonal four-course tasting dinner expertly paired with Italian wine. As the menu constantly changes depending on the produce in season, you'll no doubt be in for a wonderful surprise as each dish is brought to your table.
Discover the Wonders of Italian Cuisine
From the aperitif to the dessert, your food and wine pairing dinner will bring you on an extraordinary journey exploring the best of Italian cuisine. You'll learn about the 'rules' of food and wine pairing and how they can be artfully broken to create surprising and delightful flavor combinations.
Unfortunately, all good evenings must come to an end. So, after a traditional Italian dessert, you'll say goodbye to your new foodie friends, filled to the brim with memories of a truly special dining experience in Rome.

Meravigliosa Cena e Vino
When Alessandro met us in the Piazza Minerva, he told us it would be just the three of us! What a treat and a highlight of our stay in Rome! As a lifelong Roman, Alessandro regaled us with stories and information about the pairings of Italian wines with the delicious food at Casa Bleve. We would love to experience another food tour with Alessandro and highly recommend him as our guide. Grazie mille!!!
Extra special event!
