Rome Local Food Tour Description

Your 3-hour tour includes:

  • Culinary walking tour through Trastevere

  • Four stops with multiple food and wine tastings

  • Sit-down dinner at a local Roman restaurant

  • End the evening with delicious gelato

  • A local English-speaking foodie guide

  • Maximum of 12 people per group

Roman Salumeria

Your first stop will be at a family-owned deli where you'll sample prosciutto, salame, cheeses, and some tasty local wine. This establishment has been serving locals for over 100 years, so they definitely know what they are doing. Learn the difference between parmigiana and pecorino, and prosciutto and salame. After you wash it all down with some local wine, you'll probably want to visit this little shop again to stock up for your trip home.

Street Food of Rome

Many people wonder why baccalà (cod fish) is such a popular dish in Rome, considering they aren't close to the Atlantic where cod is usually found. Well, your guide will share the fascinating history of this local favorite and why it's a popular dish in Trastevere. You'll enjoy another glass of local wine with this local street food favorite.

An Authentic Roman Dinner

Sit down and relax in a friendly restaurant and sample a three-course meal with an antipasto starter, two popular Roman pastas, a traditional meat dish, and local wines. At this sit-down restaurant, you'll be able to rest your feet, enjoy your dinner, and learn more about what makes the Eternal City such a popular food destination. No Italian dinner is complete without a digestivo, so you'll finish your meal with a limoncello.

The Best Organic Gelato in Trastevere

You didn't think we'd finish a Roman 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. Your guide will help you learn how to spot the best quality gelato as you try some new flavors. From coffee to cheese or pistachio, there's a gelato flavor for everyone. 

When you book your tour with us, please contact us if you have any special dietary restrictions so we can do our best to accommodate you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

Come hungry and wear comfortable shoes, since you'll be walking between tasting stops.

Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?

Stops and tastings on this tour are subject to change due to seasonal/holiday venue closures. As the places we frequent on this Trastevere Rome food tour are local institutions and family-run businesses, they can close at any time with little-to-no warning. In this situation, your guide will take you to another popular eatery nearby.

Can I bring my kids and do I have to pay for them?

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 eat food at any stop, please select the "youth" category before checkout and add them to your group in order to save them a seat at the dinner table.

What if I have food allergies, intolerances, or other requirements?

Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs. We will work with our tour partners to provide you an alternative when possible.

How many glasses of wine will I get?

You'll enjoy three glasses, but in many places, it is served in a carafe which is the typical serving style in Rome. In this case, you might enjoy more than three glasses of wine, but we recommend not overdoing it so you can enjoy your evening (and the following morning).

What to bring?

Come hungry and wear comfortable shoes, since you'll be walking between tasting stops.

Can I still come if I don't drink alcohol?

Yes, you're welcome to come! Just reach out to us directly so we can work with our partners to accommodate your needs.
