The experience enables Londoners to virtually dine with Italians in Milan, and has been created due to the revelation that a quarter of Brits are scared to eat their favourite Italian dish on a date. Deliveroo and Three are helping tackle that statistic by giving guests the opportunity to enjoy an authentic dinner while chatting live to an Italian ‘date’.

Running from 19-20 April, the event will take place on London's South Bank and those interested can book their place on the Deliveroo website. Diners can choose a dish from Rossopomodoro’s bespoke menu and dine with a their Milanese date, as they learn how to master the intricacies of eating risky dishes such as spaghetti. 

Members of the public can sign up and conduct their virtual date in a comfortable and homely environment. The installation will also be open for passers-by to experience, and have their own Italian dinner with an Italian.

In November, Deliveroo teamed up with celebrity Scotty T and competitive eater Kate Ovens to launch its #RooRescue student club takeover tour. Last year, Three Mobile created a pop-up ski lodge for Austria's Snowbombing festival.
