How it works

My Italian Friends is a service that allows you to find a Host who will give you a truly different experience than the one you would have even in the best restaurant. Booking your lunch or dinner with the Host, who will be your Italian Friend, you will have the opportunity not only to try homemade recipes, but also to experience the atmosphere that there is in Italy at mealtime when people share food, a good glass of wine, a good conversation and a good laugh.


Each Host has a dedicated page where you can read their profile and the services they may offer in addition to lunch or dinner, for example cooking classes, a short tour to visit the area or just to take you “where the locals go”. You can also see menus, photos and prices as well as read reviews from previous guests to help you make a more informed choice. Once you have chosen your Host, you can book using our secure service and we will take payment.
In the rare occurrence that the event cannot take place, you will be promptly notified and your card will not be charged. If you want to cancel your booking you can do so without penalty providing you comply with the terms established by each Host. In the absence of specific terms, there will be a full refund only if you cancel at least 24 hours before the event is due to take place.
