The restaurant reservations you made for us ensured that we were warmly welcomed and well treated.
Most visitors of Rome are happy enough with their gastronomic discoveries, but they do not know what they have missed. Guests of Casa MANNI, on the other hand, who let us guide them can eat like the most privileged Romans - whether they seek traditional or cutting edge or both. We offer a variety of private experiences, lessons, and tastings that showcase the best food and wine that Rome has to offer, and are happy to custom create experiences to suit your interests and requirements. In Rome, as perhaps nowhere else, insiders eat better.
Food will be an important part of your enjoyment of Rome. But Rome has some six thousand places to eat. Let us help you pick the right ones with our Taste of Rome. The best chefs and traditional trattoria cooks of our city have been our friends for years. We’ll construct a personalized gastronomic and cultural itinerary made up of fine restaurants, family-style trattorias, pizza, coffee, gelato, and the many kinds of places Romans love to drink and snack. Our gastronomic Rome is an elite world of in-the-know, food-lovers and experts who rely on one another for advice—no fads, no Internet, no guides, and no clichés. With Taste of Rome, we let our guests in on their secrets.
Our experts can guide you in tastings, cooking lessons, and market tours so you can immerse yourself in the rich gastronomic life of Rome. You can do thematic or regional tastings of Italy's best cheese, prosciutto and salumi, breads, smoked and marinated fish, and other gourmet delights, and even an olive oil tasting guided by Armando Manni himself.
For a truly unique experience, you can have a private lesson with a top chef or other specialist in your fully equipped kitchen at Casa MANNI. The lesson can have a theme, such as pasta or risotto or fish, or you can learn a whole meal in a favorite chef's style. Perhaps you have always wanted to make perfect Bolognese tagliatelle by hand? You will have the right expert to teach you.
