I would highly recommend this for anyone really, but especially if you have children with you. It was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Florence. There's not a lot for children in Florence. This was a refreshing experience.
Our chefs were from Giovanni's Italian Cooking Class by Food and Wine Academy of Florence. Alain and Alessio were engaging which made the course even more fun. There were people of all ages fro children to retirees. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
I was impressed to be able to create my own dough from scratch under the chef's guidance. It was interesting to see them make the gelato. I appreciated the hints they gave us for recreating both recipes at home.
We ate our own pizzas, tasted some others they created with truffle oil toppings which were also tasty, then finished with the chocolate gelato created earlier.
A nice touch at the end was a booklet with all the recipes plus a certificate to say we passed!
I throughly enjoyed this class and would recommend it to aspiring cooks of all ages. The children in my class seemed to particularly enjoy making their own pizzas.
Grazie Alain and Alessio
Great value for money and great fun! Loved the fact that we were upgraded to the VIP tour for nothing. Made our experience on our minimoon ever better. The chef was really knowledgable and lovely. Learned lots about spotting a real galleto house. Thank you Mrs Steele
This tour was amazing! Stop reading reviews and just book this one. Our guides couldn't have been better, they were very attentive to all of us but especially our 2 children , ages 11 and 8. Perfect evening. We all agreed that was a highlight of Florence. (Also the best pizza/gelato in Florence!)
We really enjoy this cooking class. We had very good, funny, knowledgeable and smart chiefs. Pizza and gelato were delicious and plus all fun we had while cooking. Me and my 12 and 18 years old daughters are really enjoy this class and made some new friends. Plus it turns that our hotel was just few minutes walking distance from this class!

Very good. It got off to a late start and I didn't realize how much we would be walking to the cooking location. I also didn't like leaving the location at dark, two women alone through streets that we were unfamiliar with. The chefs and the class was amazing!!!! Great tips on pizzamaking and gelato and lots of fun.
Had a great time learning how to make pizza and gelato. The chefs Davide and ? sorry forgot the second chefs name were friendly, fun and informative. The group was a comfortable size and everything was provided. We enjoyed the experience and the pizza and gelato we made was really delicious. Thanks!
absolutely wonderful. A lot of fun, the chefs were great teachers. Great experience! highly recommended!
Our 2 boys had such a wonderful time. Chefs David and Allen were very engaging and helpful. Would definitely recommend!
This was such a fun class. I was traveling alone in Florence and it was a great way to meet others and have a different type of experience as opposed to the typical tourist attractions. One of my favorite memories of my trip.
There should be a sixth star available for this cooking class! We had a FUN time and, the pizza we prepared individually was excellent. Great interaction with other classmates. The gelato preparation was only observation, not hands on, but you can definitely walk away knowing how to make your own.
Loved this class so much fun! Giovanni was great. Loved the location at the cooking class.
We really enjoyed this class! Lots of fun. We had our teenagers with us and it was a great activity to do together. The kids really enjoyed it too and were entertained! The instructors were fun, and the pizza and gelato was delicious!
This was one of the highlights for us here in Florence, so much fun! They don't skip any steps and we made our own pizza's from scratch. Alessio and the other chef were kind, patient and fun. Inspired to go home and make our own gelato and Tuscan style pizza!
The tour was wonderful, the food and wine were superb. I would highly recommend this tour.
It was a most enjoyable evening,we realy enjoyed our chef,and the pizza and gelato tasted wonderful!
We loved our instructor/Chef Andrea and his asst Marco. I think our small group of 6 happened to have an extra amount of fun this particular evening. The instructions could not have been better, and courteous and we loved the end product. Wonderful evening that kept on going!
Loved it! We had such a great time and have made pizza since this class with all the knowledge we learned. Would definitely recommend this fun evening!
My friend and I had an excellent evening cooking with Alessio! He really knew what he was talking about and a fun and enjoyable evening was had by everyone in the group. I would definitely recommend this class!!!
Very good tour. Even our teenage boys enjoyed it. The instructors were excellent and made the class fun. They interacted with everyone in the group from young children to grown adults. The pizza and gelato we made were very good, some of the best we had over the 12 days we were in Italy. I highly recommend this tour.
