Felt most unwelcome, the accommodation was a dark basement room - certainly not as implied by the web site. In fairness, the food was very good, BUT based upon my subsequent illness, was not gluten free as I have specifically requested and reminded the host.

We visited Wendy and Mo in April 2011 for 3 nights and attended their cooking class. We had rented a car and Wendy helped us plan our trips to/from Montebello train station to get on the Roma metro. We found the accommodations to be great and lacking nothing. Our ground floor room looked out on the pool. We had our... More

The view is breathtaking; the self catered apartment is not. The photos don't tell the real story. The second bedroom is shared with the living and dining space and must be walked through to get to the third bedroom and the small kitchen which is also the laundry room. The third bedroom is windowless and dark. Be prepared to furnish... More

Our family of four loved our stay at this beautiful B and B. Wendy prepared delicious gourmet breakfasts for us so that we had a perfect start to our sight seeing days in Rome.

My husband and I went back and forth on where to stay in Rome. A close friend of his is Italian and visits his family in Italy yearly. He highly recommended that we stay in Rome so that the city would be on our doorstep. I, on the other hand, wanted that "Under the Tuscan Sun" experience. Therefore, I wanted... More

It's a beautiful place to stay, the house is perfect! The family styled restaurants in Riano are amazing. Definitely go to Ristorante... will become your family in an instance. The distance is not as stated, you have to take the train/metro to get there it takes 40 MINS! This particular train's last ride is at 10PM so you can't really... More

We encourage guests to look at the Location page on our website prior to booking. Flavor of Italy is close to Rome’s historic center (St. Peter's Dome is visible from our property), yet is located in a gorgeous country setting. For young people looking for an active night life, our bed and breakfast may not be the right accommodation choice.... More

Flavor of Italy is a small, family owned and operated establishment that prides itself on top customer service and maintaining a beautiful facility.
