Did this with my boyfriend during vacation. Such a cool experience that broke up the typical sightseeing tours we were doing. Varying ages in the class- we are late20/early30s- which made the group dynamic and fun.
Highly recommended. Money spent is well worth it.
Absolutely the VERY best! Because of the holiday we did not get to go to the market, but the two chefs made up for that with a fun, informative class. We all made a great meal, the food was delicious, and we all laughed a lot! This is a must do in Florence!
Fantastic company. Great experience. I booked another class that very night which was also very enjoyable.
Fabulous. The chefs were great and the food even better. Thoroughly enjoyed!
The small group cooking class is a great way to spend a few hours in Florence! Our class was held at a top notch cooking school facility (formerly a restaurant) and our instructor, Giuseppe, was fantastic. We made ravioli, bolognese sauce, and tiramisu, all of which was enjoyed with red wine from the region at the end of class. Fortunately the class let out mid-afternoon so we had some free time left to enjoy more of Florence.
Amazing. Outstanding. Delicious. Should be a must for everyone. Food was great. Lessons easy to follow. The chef was informational yet, entertaining. The visit to the market was marvelous as was the lecture by the market person. Loved the olive oil and vinegar demos.
This is a must do for everyone!!! Great experience! Great chefs!!
We couldn't have been happier with our cooking school experience! From our visit to the market to the making of the pasta, we loved it all. Our teacher was not only helpful and entertaining, but very patient as we learned how to cook and finally enjoy our meal together. We whole heartedly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn to cook Italian, and have a wonderful day.

The Italian cooking class tour was exceptional--it unfolded exactly as advertised online. The initial visit to the Florence food market was outstanding. Sonya treated us to hands on demonstration and tasting of the culinary jewels of Italy: pane, olio, balsamico, parmiagiano, vino . . . truly wonderful. Andrea, our chef teacher, was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. His teaching method was easy to follow, and he made everyone feel special. As advertised we prepared tiramisu, handmade paparadelle and ravioli, bolognese sauce--all from scratch and with our own hands under the skilled eye of Chef Andrea. And then, we got to eat--buonissimo! An overall 5 stars!
The chef was very good and the trip to the market to purchase the food for our meal preparation was a great added touch to the experience. I went alone and met some very nice people from all over the world. Highly recommend this experience.
My family and I had a blast! We learned so many new things. We cannot wait to try it all at home!
We highly recommend this class to anyone that wants that extra something during their visit to Florence. The head chef Giovanni was an outstanding teacher who kept everyone's interest and made the class fun and informative. The food quality is top notch and the finished product made our mouths water!
Take this class!
We were lucky enough to only have a very small group of 4 and so we got lots of one to one teaching time from Chef Giovanni. The visit to the market was wonderful and we learnt so much about olive oil, cheeses and balsamic, and the tastings were great. We enjoyed preparing and then eating pasta two ways and Tiramisu with some lovely Chianti wine. It was a great day and well worth doing if you're in Florence and want a break from the museums and palazzo's.
