Great restaurant, super nice people, a brilliant evening! Making pasta yourself is easier than I thought and in such a nice atmosphere you remember everything even better :) Definitely not my last course, I'm looking forward to the next one. Be sure to book, immerse yourself in Italian cuisine and enjoy. It's an experience!

Daniella and the staff of the restaurant made this experience unforgettable. My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to get a class just the two of us!! Truly amazing. We had a great time making pasta by hand (with included beverages too) and got great pictures too. The chef and restaurant staff didn’t speak great English but still showed kindness and joked around with us. We learned how to make THE BEST pasta of my life. We got to eat our pasta in a romantic and quiet private nook of the restaurant, then went on a short tour around the Jewish district of Rome. I recommend this tour a thousand times over. Went back to the restaurant later in the trip since the food was so good, chef came out to say hi. Real good folks.
