Large group dinner

Hello. My family (up to 25 of us) are heading to Rome for the ordination of a nephew. We are wondering if anyone has suggestions for a venue for a “fun” dinner or cooking class that could accommodate us all for an evening (no one has a big enough hotel/rental to have private chef come in. Any helpful thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

Well Done to your nephew! Contact the restaurant Flavio Al Velavevodetto. We ate there as part of a food tour, at a long table, and they clearly had more room, so I’d think a party of 25 could be accommodated. They’re set into the ancient, manmade Testaccio Hill, with windows on one wall that allow you to see a cross section of the broken Ancient Roman pottery shards from which the hill was created, so the atmosphere is unique and wonderful.

I’d think a cooking class for as many as 25 people at one time would be hard for any chef or cooking school to conduct, especially in a single kitchen. Maybe one exists, but I’d be surprised.

This food is far from gourmet but the experience is unique. We’ve eaten at this restaurant Eau Vive with a group. It is run entirely by nuns from many different countries who cook, serve the food and then sing a blessing at the end of the dinner.
