Great personal experience but make sure to verify the meeting point!

The first thing I want to mention is that the address for the meeting spot is INCORRECT!! We ended up being 30 minutes late because of this. We called and let them know and they were very understanding (maybe already aware this was an inconsistency?) and we still got the same amount of time. It looks like as of now the address may still be incorrect? So I suggest contacting directly and verify!! They did send us an email after we booked and we should have just taken the name of the restaurant and entered it directly into our maps or googled it rather than trying to link from GetYourGuide. Besides this, it was the perfect amount of time, everyone was extremely friendly and catered to whatever we needed - for example I’m a vegetarian and hadn’t let them know ahead of time but they chopped up extra veggies to add to my pizza and made me a personalized veggie dish to try with their truffle oil! Overall great experience once we got there!

Very good experience. We learned to make pizza with wholemeal flour and normal flour 00. So we were able to eat 4 pizzas. We also learned to make artisanal cream ice cream (the one that looks like my vanilla) that we tasted as dessert. Chef Kiko was super nice to us. They revealed some cooking secrets to us. Cooking lessons take place in the restaurant kitchen. With Silvia after the cooking lessons we had wine tasting on the restaurant side. Excellent wines and well presented. At the end a bottle of wine was offered to us which made a nice surprise.
