Stefania and Vincenzo were wonderful hosts! They warmly welcomed us into their house and spoke highly of their city. We enjoyed learning how to cook from scratch using unique Italian ingredients. And it was delicious! Thank you for a unforgettable evening.

The experience my husband and I had was perfect. Our host/teacher Beatrice went out of her way to ensure we had a wonderful time cooking, laughing and eating. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to take a memory of Italy back home with them.

This was the best experience ever! My friends and I had a great time meeting the instructor and now we are home making pastas and tiramisu! I’d recommend this experience to anyone! Loved loved loved!
