Eating alone isn't my favorite thing. To me - maybe it's my Italian heritage - food is best enjoyed shared, over lively conversation with old and new friends. Food and friends are the idea behind EatWith , a community-marketplace website that matches traveling and local eaters with hosts who cook and serve a meal in their home. Think Airbnb, for dinner. I stumbled upon the website while planning a trip that included two solo nights in Trastevere, in Rome, Italy. I also checked out similar sites, like Feastly, Side Tour and VoulezVousDiner.
