I am a chef as well specialized on mushrooms and truffles dishes, i started to cook with my father in our restaurant when i was 15, this is my second biggest passion!

Matteo was super knowledgeable about the area and especially finding truffles. The dishes he made with the truffles were top notch. We couldn’t have picked a better experience while in Italy.

Matteo is a wonderful, great host, knowledgeable, friendly and a great cook. We had nice conversations about food and mushrooms in general. The experience was super smooth, from the dialogue beforehand, being picked up and delivered at the train station. The food was delicious, the truffle hunting easy and cozy. Home-made wine was really nice (and the limoncello too). His dog Oggi was super cute and well-behaved. We will definetly recommended this to all our friends visiting Rome.

Hands down the best experience on Airbnb!! Matteo was extremely knowledgeable (third generation truffle hunter). We were picked up at the train station then brought to the forest with Utzi the magnificent truffle dog. We then watched Matteo and Utzi work together to find truffles. We walked around a GORGEOUS forest of oak trees, learned about how truffles grow and how Utzi the dog and him partner together to find the truffles. After the hunt (we found 4-5 truffles!) we went to Matteo’s home where we had a multi course meal of awesome items made with truffles. Home made everything: risotto, mozzarella, bruschetta, wine, limoncello, and of course, truffles on everything. As a side note: my iPhone was low on batteries and Matteo found me a charger in his home….. Going above & beyond! We ate, drank, met new friends - best day in Rome.
