The Festival of Roman Cuisine is a unique opportunity for food lovers and enthusiasts to savor the authentic taste of Roman dishes made from fresh, local ingredients.

The festival will be a unique and unmistakable weekend, during which four trattorias will offer freshly prepared dishes following traditional recipes, creating a rich and appetizing menu where each dish will tell a story of history, tradition, and taste.

All of these delicious dishes will be accompanied by Frascati wine. To further enrich the gastronomic offer, there will also be classic fried fish, calamari/gamberi, moscardini, and Baccala fillets.

To conclude the festival on a sweet note, the Pasticceria Artigianale Madagascar le Origini del Cioccolato di Fregene will offer fresh desserts such as Tiramisu, Crostate, Bombe, Ciambelle, Donuts, Waffles filled with cream, Cheese cake, Panna Cotta, Sicilian Cannoli, Nutella Roll, Crepes, and much more.

The festival will take place in the charming Agri-Park, an oasis of greenery immersed in the Roman countryside at the Tenuta Biologica di Agricoltura Nuova in Via Castel di Leva 371, a few steps from the Divino Amore. This park is equipped for events and outdoor activities and features ample parking, restrooms, entertainment for children, tables and seating for over 1,000 people, billiards, farm animals, a dog area with agility dog courses, and the My Fly Zone, the largest and most equipped bike park in the capital.

The location is perfect for the whole family to spend unforgettable days in peace, enjoying good food and conviviality. The festival is free to enter by writing your name and the number of participants on the Facebook event page, but this does not serve as a reservation, so visitors are encouraged to arrive early to secure a table.
