About
Enjoy a private and authentic Italian meal in a local Florence home with your host Antonella. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Originally from Sicily, Antonella is an adopted Tuscan. As with many born and raised Sicilians, Antonella has always been incredibly passionate about food. A few years ago she decided to turn her passion into her work and Antonella now works as a cooking instructor, professional chef and a food blogger. Antonella lives with her husband and their two daughters in an apartment in Florence, about a 10-minute drive from Santa Maria Novella. Antonella and her husband are both very extroverted, easy to talk to and have lots of experience communicating with travelers. Escape the touristy restaurants and enjoy a unique dining experience with this local family to experience Italian culture and hospitality.

What to expect
  • This is a unique opportunity to visit a home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Join your host Antonella and her family at their cozy and modern Florentine apartment. You will be welcomed not only by Antonella, but also by her husband - often Antonella's kitchen assistant with a cup of espresso! Antonella is an incredible host, both warm and very professional. You will be able to tell immediately that she is passionate about cooking, as almost half of the main floor is the kitchen. Join the family at the dining table for your meal. The table will be set impeccably, and your hosts will offer you a prosecco to start (typical of Italian meals) followed by a selection of delicious Tuscan red wines. Antonella's husband is a wine lover and throughout the evening, he will engage you in a talk about the different types of wines in the region. Your menu might include a selection of tagliatelle with seasonal vegetables, ravioli with ricotta and lemon zest or mint and tomato sauce or chicken with mushrooms and balsamic vinegar. For dessert you will enjoy traditional recipes such as ricotta tart, panna cotta, tiramisù or biscotti.
