We are Eva&Raffaele, a Spanish project manager and an Italian architect and photographer, living now in Leiden who started being interested in learning about food and its origins (natural/human background) around ten years ago. Our works have given us the opportunity to live worldwide which have helped us to learn and enjoy different food & wine experiences, always from local people who cook and share with us their passion and love for a good table. We are crazy for good artisan oil, tasty homemade pastries, juicy meat, fresh rocky fish and excellent wines. Mediterranean cuisine & slow food are our roots, mainly focused on traditional cuisine, the one we learnt from our grandmas. We try to be as authentic as possible although happy to revisit some recipes in order to adapt them to our guest needs (gluten-free, other intolerances). In any case, our favourite dishes are those that not only give us the pleasure of their taste but also communicate us with the earth and the people of the area, telling us part of their history, such an essential part of our own history. Be able to share these stories with friends coming from all over the world, who really want to share and enjoy a lovely evening…that really is a privilege!

Como será la experiencia en casa de Eva & Raffaele
What an amazing evening with Eva and Rafaele! From the start with great conversation and aperitif to learning how to cook the perfect risotto and focaccia the evening was the most memorable one. Thank you both so much for your wonderful hospitality in making us feel very welcomed in your home. Thank you also for all the other additional tips you gave us in how to spend our time in you're beautiful city. The evening started as strangers but we feel like we've left with new friends.
We had a very enjoyable evening with Eva and Raffaele. The food was excellent and paired with lovely wine. We also enjoyed having the opportunity to spend time and converse with our hosts and their friends. We are so glad we decided to try Eatwith. It is a rare opportunity to experience life in another country with friendly people in their home. Thank you, Eva and Raffaele!
If you are looking for a special experience, than make sure to book a dinner at Eva & Raffaele. My wife booked this dinner as a birthday surprise for me. She was looking for something different than all the other restaurants/food experiences in Prague. The outcome was so good !!!! We really enjoyed our dinner together with Eva, Raffaele and another couple (I respect their privacy so I will not mention names – but their presence also contributed a lot for this experience - Eva: thank you for this dinner match making). Eva & Raffaele bring their special warm-hearted Spanish-Italians roots to the table along with their love to hosting people and make sure they enjoy their time, conversation and of course their meal. Eventually each guest becomes their friend. The menu preparation was done directly with my wife and they were open and careful in order to match it to our taste. There was plenty of alcohol in the right verity and portion (including the unforgettable limoncello – made from Raffaele's Italian lemons). We highly recommend them and we will come back for sure !! (bear in mind that Eva & Raffaele are very popular so make sure to book in advance !)
