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.

An awesome experience!

We absolutely loved our whole experience here. The atmosphere was amazing and the cooking lesson was fantastic with an incredible meal to eat at the end (thanks Kiko!). The wine and olive oil tasting was also great with very generous portions. We would highly recommend this.

The chef and his team were amazing! This was the best experience I have had in Italy. The wine, the food and the olive oil were to die for.

It was amazing. The cooking was fun and entertaining. The wines were great and the service was top notch

Such an amazing tour! Our personal chef Kiko was very informative and made the class a lot of fun!
