This experience was a highlight of our trip! It was wonderful to learn how to cook in our instructor’s home from recipes passed down from her grandmother and mother. We had a little trouble finding the location (we were driving a rented car and aren’t accustomed to the narrow Italian roads). I later saw that they had sent me an email in the afternoon with meeting instructions, so I would recommend checking your email closer to the time of the event and also requesting to be picked up instead of driving. Once we were able to start the class, we completely forget the stress of being lost and it made it all worth it!

Very nice experience in Sorrento! Luigi and his lovely wife were fantastic host. The pizza making experience was a lot of fun, and of course the final product was delicious. Would highly recommend this experience.

This was an incredible experience. This is a must while you are in Sorrento. My husband and I were lucky as we had a private cooking lesson!

Martina is a thoughtful, engaged, caring and empathetic teacher who shared from her heart, home and family.

We had a wonderful time with Luigi! We highly recommend this class!
