Ciao! I am Michela. Paolo and I are friends. I met Paolo a long time ago in Ventotene, a small island in the Mediterranean sea off the western coast of Italy between Rome and Naples. We spent many summers on this remote island sharing a big house with other friends. Paolo used to go fishing with an old local fisherman and, in the evening, he loved to cook fresh fish for all of us. The atmosphere was simple and laid back, good food, wine, music and enthusiasm were the recipes. I am originally from Naples so I have the natural Neapolitan aptitude for hospitality, laughter and conversation! Time has passed. We have decided to re-create that same warm, fun and casual atmosphere here in Rome, in my house in Trastevere. I enjoy cooking traditional Italian cakes and pastries. Paolo has become a professional chef. His search for the best local products is authentic and continuous. His creative dishes shaped on classic italian food are all prepared with top quality local ingredients. Paolo believes that the secret of Italian cooking is simplicity and quality. When in Rome...come and visit us! Food brings people together, it doesn't matter where you come from!

Cooking with Michela and Paulo was such a fantastic experience, one of our best nights in Italy! A great really hands-on cooking experience and a super fun dinner with charming hosts. Can’t recommend this enough! And now, we can’t wait to cook fresh pasta at home now.
Michela & Paolo are consummate hosts located in one of Rome’s most enjoyable neighborhoods. The evening began with sparkling wine, local cheese and meats. From there we moved into the well-appointed dining room where deliciousness ensued. Highlights included Paolo’s fresh homemade pasta, local artichokes, chicken cacciatore, delicious wine and Michela’s tiramisu prepared tableside! All top notch. We have enjoyed several eat with dinners in various cities and this was by far our best experience. It hit the mark on several fronts (food, ambiance, drinks, conversation and vibe). Michela and Paolo made all guest feel welcome and cared for. They made sure plates and glasses were never empty. Their hearts are big and full of passion for cooking and hosting. The conversations were interesting and enlightening. We learned a lot. Not only are we recommending this dinner to our friends and family, we will certainly be back again to enjoy the hospitality of Michela and Paolo. Salute!
