Do you dream about being in Italy and enjoying its unique cuisine and culture?

Let us bring Italy to you! We know Italy holds a special place in your heart.

We all know it’s not possible to travel to Italy right now and it’s difficult to plan ahead. Dreams are on hold.

As you wait to go to beautiful Italy, why not join us to be inspired and find out all about Italian food, wine and culture. Let us bring you into the Rome Countryside to be part of our Italian family, cooking wonderful traditional food, talking and laughing together in the relaxed atmosphere of our Italian family home.


At Convivio Rome, Sally and Chef Guido are proud to have run Italian cooking classes near Rome, Italy, for 16 Years. A community of thousands of people from all over the world found inspiration while enjoying their unique experience through authentic Italian food and culture.

It’s a new space for you, where people passionate about Italian food and culture, cook together LIVE with Guido in a fully interactive way, learn about the diversity of Italian traditional food and its tricks and tips, discuss a little history, some family stories and your favourite Italian recipes.

Chef Guido and Sally: Your new friends in Italy!

Chef Guido is an 8th generation Roman with a passion for traditional Italian cuisine and fresh, natural, locally sourced ingredients. He has been running Convivio Rome with his wife Sally for 16 years, offering Italian cooking classes, cooking holidays, olive oil tours and wine tours. A lot of the dishes he teaches come from his family through the many generations. Guido’s cooking classes are much more than just a cooking lesson: he’s also a storyteller, always ready to share a story from Italy or tell you about the history behind a recipe. He settled in the beautiful countryside north of Rome, a stunning region called Sabine Hills, with his family. He now also runs Live virtual cooking classes and parties. Guido’s English language is perfect and, because he was born and still lives in Italy, he’s happy to answer any questions you have about his home country.

Sally, a former anthropologist originally from Australia, first moved to Italy over 20 years ago. It was ‘Amore’ when Sally met Guido, which led her to stay. She stepped into the rich Italian culture immediately, appreciating the warmth of the people, the beauty of the landscape, the culture and history, plus the amazing food and wine. Sally travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and America as a tourist before making Italy her home. “As an Australian living in Italy, I really enjoy showing my guests those secret places I have discovered, giving them an experience of what it’s like to live as a local here in Italy. There’s so much more to Italy that what you can discover as a tourist and I am honoured to reveal aspects of the Italian culture that you would never see otherwise”.

We've saved you a seat at our Italian family table!

Highly recommended! I have been attending Convivio Rome’s virtual cooking classes and was able to host a zoom virtual cooking party for family and friends with Guido as the guest Chef. It was terrific!!! Guido did a wonderful job teaching us how to make gnocchi and it was so great to spend time with he and Sally and see their garden and around their area in Italy. I visited them over 11 years ago with my daughter and spent a marvellous day cooking and touring in their part of Italy. You will really enjoy these classes!
