Absolutely a wonderful time and definitely worth booking! We laughed so hard, prepared four Italian dinner courses, drank a little wine and just had a blast! Highly recommend!!!
This was a lot of fun for the price. The cooking instruction was clear, although the class was aimed squarely at beginners looking for a fun evening, rather than serious cooks who want to pick up new techniques or learn about local ingredients. The dinner we made was delicious, and we were pleasantly surprised that the wine just kept flowing at dinner. We had a lot of fun and laughter, it was a really fun way for me as a solo traveller to connect with other tourists for an evening.
The cooking class/dinner was a true highlight of our vacation and our time in Florence. Alesandro, the chef in charge of my family, was fantastic-- so informative and professional yet so much fun. He made it fun for my teenager daughters as well as for my husband and me. We thought it was a reasonably priced event for a 2.5 hour cooking class and then a chance to eat the four-course dinner we had prepared along with red table wine. The cooking school was very clean and professionally set up and the downstairs wine cellar where we ate was cozy and felt very "Italian authentic." A really fun night for all!

This was my second time to do this Tuscan cooking class. I was surprised that the menu was different from the previous time last October. The chef explained that they use a different menu each day of the week, At any rate, the chefs were great, the experience was great, and the food was great when we ate. This is a not-to-miss experience!

Great to meet other people doing the cooking class, you get to eat the dinner you prepared after with the rest of the group! The chef was a great teacher - a lot of fun highly recommend!
THis was on of the highlights of our trip. Teenage boys truly enjoyed it!
Such an amazing experience. My husband and I really enjoyed this, it was a perfect evening. The chiefs and assistances were great, I would recommend this to you all!!
There were 6 of us traveling together that took the class including two teenagers. Everyone had a great time. Our chef, Alessandro, was the best, He helped us all make a fabulous and tasty Tuscan meal. It is definitely worth your time to experience this when you are exploring Florence.
The cooking class was, my husband and I really enjoyed it !!!! Met some great people and it was a great way to spend an evening! Would definitely recommend it!
We had a really great time attending the evening class. It was just the right amount of time, a wonderful experience.
This was one of our favorite parts of our trip to Italy. Great staff, awesome instruction, great group of people to share time and a meal. The food was wonderful and setting perfect !!!
We enjoyed the class a lot. Met interesting people in our group and had a fabulous time. We made our own pasta and now my husband wants to buy a pasta maker. Our chef Alessandro was awesome. He's very meticulous and funny. Very down to earth. He made the experience even better.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this Tuscan Cooking Class. Alessandro, our chef was both professional and entertaining at the same time. We made a wonderful four course meal, including dessert. This was followed by dinner in the wine cellar of the school, with all of our "classmates." What a great atmosphere! We met some wonderful people, while enjoying the food we prepared. Great food, conversation, and of course, wine. Would highly recommend this class to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Florence.
We absolutely loved it!! One of the stellar highlights of our fabulous trip!
I would rate this 6 stars if I could...a true highlight of our trip to Florence. Small group cooking class in a local culinary school, very hands-on instruction of techniques and food preparation. Our chef/instructor was fun and entertaining and really set an enjoyable tone for the evening. The dishes were interesting and challenging to prepare but we were guided through everything in a very organized way. After preparation, we all sat together to enjoy dinner...the food was outstanding and we had a wonderful time. Loved this class, highly recommended!
So fun! Would do it again! Great instructors and the food was fantastic. And what we made can easily be repeated at home. A really fun evening!
At first I was a little disappointed at the large number of students in the class, at least 25, but the kitchen was adequately designed for volume and the staff was equally efficient in assisting the group. We prepared an authentic Italian dinner and it was a fantastic hands on experience. After 2 hours of chopping, slicing, cooking and entertainment, we retreated to the cellar for a memorable dining experience. The class was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Florence.
This was a real home run. We had a great time and met some nice fellow travelers. The dinner we created was delicious and so fun to prepare. Do yourself a favor and take this cooking class. There was about 30 people but broken up into small groups of 4 or 6. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it.
Seldom do events such as an internet selected cooking school in an unfamiliar place meet expectations. The cooking class and dinner provided here exceeded even my most optimistic expectations. Our chef was a thoroughly enjoyable young man. The facility had several well equipped work stations and the dinner grotto was very nice. This is a great way to spend an afternoon/evening in a beautiful city.
This experience was an absolute blast!!! Fabrizio was the chef that taught our group and is hilarious! The food we made was so yummy. Met some wonderful people also. Give it a try, you will be glad you did!
This was one of my favorites. It was a great hands on experience. The chefs were great instructors and our food was delicious. Definitely something I would prepare at home!
