Italy is full of traditions, and moving from one home to another everyone has their own, which are intertwined with those of the territory. Antipasto and Dessert under the banner of the elegance of yesteryear, a fresh sauce that takes us southward and an iconic pasta format of Roman culture, recipes that are delicate and at the same time full of flavor, all to be replicated at home. In the company of a good glass of wine and a table full of laughter in an 'artful' home!

WOW!! Our dinner with Ophelia was on our second to last night of a seven night vacation with family and friends. Ophelia prepared an absolutely magnificent meal for TEN of us and it was by far our best of the trip. She and Leonardo were absolutely delightful and gracious - we felt like we were having dinner with friends. If you are the least bit hesitant and wondering if this is for you, I urge you to take the plunge - you will not regret it! Grazia, Ophelia!!!! 💕

Ofelia and Leonardo were amazing host!! They welcomed us into their home like we were familia. Ofelia took time for a short cooking lesson before our dinner and we received great cooking tips. The meal itself was absolutely amazing!! There were 10 of us and Ofelia said it was her biggest group and Ofelia and Leonardo were the most gracious host. It was a delight to be out of the bustle of the center of Rome and experience a quaint neighborhood and a beautiful welcoming home. Grazie to Ofelia and Leonardo!!

Ofelia provided a magical fusion of taste and sight! She has amazing attention to detail and we leave knowing how fortunate we are that we will be able to create some of that magic too!

Cesarina from 2022Location: Rome    Languages: Italian and English
"Hello everyone! Mine is a cuisine that starts above all from traditional family recipes. I was born in Calabria, but mine is a family branched out in cultural and consequently also culinary history. A great-grandmother of a Jewish family married to a great-grandfather an aviator American, another who abandoned dancing with the consuls for a marriage with an intellectual of peasant origins, all united with the Calabrian mountain tradition.From the branch of Jewish origins I took the great love for sweet and sour, for fermented recipes and spicy scents, from the noble branch some recipes that I discovered to be relatives of sometimes Sicilian and sometimes Neapolitan cuisine (from the Kingdom of the two Sicilies:), some that I have never happened to find in other houses. I moved to Rome almost twenty years ago to study and I stayed there, here I also assimilated some recipe books from my partner who is a Roman from Trastevere, making my own super recipes rlatives of the Roman tradition, such as the first classics or the Maritozzi, which I often personalize with fillings that bring me and my guests back to Calabria!
