LOVED this tour. Fernando was a wonderful chef - engaging and fun. Amazing fun making pasta then eating it at the restaurant. A must do tour in Rome
5 stars to the cooking class. It was fun, we had a great teacher, and the staff was wonderful. Chef Fabio even came to check on us. I've always wanted to make pasta and this class was the best. I give the walking tour 3-1/2 stars. The guide was knowledgeable but not personable.
My boyfriend and I did this on our last day in Rome and we absolutely loved it! The walking tour was very informative and the pasta we made was the best we had tried in Rome!
The walking tour and cooking class is a must do. The walking guide had a wealth of information to give. The cooking class was just an awesome experience. You won't regret a moment of it.
Such a lovely experience! Now I do know how to cook real Italian pasta!!!
Loved the tour and most of all the cooking class.
We loved it so much we returned the next day to
eat at the resturant.
We had an excellent tour guide and chef. We were able to see some of the major sights of the city. The cooking class was great. We enjoyed making pasta. Fernando was an excellent chef. I would highly recommend this activity -- my husband and I loved it!
The cooking class was WONDERFUL! The chef Fabio was so nice and the food was the best that we had the entire week we were in Italy. We visited Venice and Florence first and could not find good food anywhere. The food here was so good we came back the next day to eat dinner. After the short walking tour you are taken to "That's Amore" restaurant where you will take your cooking class. One thing to note is that the only thing you are making is pasta. You will be making 3 different types of fresh pasta. The chef then takes it in the back to cook the food. Even with that, the class was so much fun. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and cooking class. The walking tour was just ok. We had a mixed crowd, some German and some English speaking participants. The tour guide had to then repeat everything she said in German as well. This took away from the tour as it was hard to pay attention to what the guide was saying. I think for future classes it needs to be all one language. Perhaps have different tours for different languages.
Cooking with Fernando was fantastic! We loved learning the art of pasta making and getting to feast afterwards.
We really enjoyed this tour! The walking portion was a great introduction to some of the highlights of the city and our guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. The highlight of the tour, however, was by far the cooking lesson. The staff at the restaurant was amazing, as was the food we made!
I loved this class, went on my own but that wasn't a problem, everyone was extremely friendly. I enjoyed it so much 10 out of 10 .
The cooking class took place in a restaurant and I enjoyed it thoroughly as restaurant chef Fernando gave me lots of suggestions and alternative ingredients to use. The walking tour can be improved as we waited for the guide for more than 30 minutes. Despite this, the guide was very knowledgeable.
Boy did my mom and I luck out on this one. For some reason, we were the only two to sign up, so we got a private cooking class! I feel bad that I forgot his name, but the chef was just spectacular! He taught us how to make several different types of pasta and then they cooked our creations at the restaurant for us to eat! Plus, we were treated to two glasses of wine each and bread. The pasta dishes were the best we had the entire trip to Rome! I really cannot say enough about the experience!
Side note for the walking tour part - The Pantheon was a really interesting place to visit, but the Trevi Fountain is under construction....so you really can't see anything.
Had a great group of people to cook with, and our chef/teacher was awesome and very patient with me!! He spoke Italian, English, Spanish, and French so language is not barrier!
Not only did we cook a great lunch, everything that came out of the kitchen was beautiful. I came back for dinner during my vacation.
I would recommend this to everyone!
While the walking tour was average (the unexpected early June heat wave may have had something to do with it), the cooking class portion of this tour was just fantastic! Restaurant was extremely picturesque and our instructor truly loved teaching four of us how to make pasta! Class was held in a little side window alcove of the restaurant, and we wound up being great entertainment for the other lunch guests. Seriously great food as we got to eat everything we made - tortellini, fettucine and orrechiate! Great for those who have seen all of the major sights and want to try some different!
great fun, fantastic pasta meal after, our children aged 17, 15, 11 all thought this was excellent, Rome can be very tiring with all the walking, this made a welcome distraction. They told us the ingredients and I have cooked the pasta sauce at home a few times still just as good.
The walking tour was good and the guide was very knowledgeable, however the cooking class was the highlight of this tour. The owner, head chief and manager at That's Amore were extremely friendly and made the cooking class a lot of fun. Our meal was so good from the cooking class, that we actually went there two more times for dinner. Their food is very highly recommended.
The guide was very knowledgeable and very patient. The pace of the walk was just right, not hurried and not too slow. Loved her responses to questions and suggestions for photo opportunities.
The cooking class was fantastic!
I would highly recommend this tour.
This is a must do for anyone visiting Rome. We did the short walk and cooking class. Our guild was extremely knowledgable and so pleasant as was the weather. Cooking at That s Amore' beyond enjoyable and fun. Fernando and Monica are warm people and made us feel like we were at home. Do this !!
Marco was our guide for this trip. Although we had been to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Trevi Fountain in the past, it was nice to hear the history from Marco. The reason I booked this tour, though, was the cooking class. We ended up at That's Amore close to the Trevi for our pasta class. Fernando was the perfect teacher, patient and friendly. He even took photos for us! There was just one other couple that took the cooking class with us which made it so nice to get individual attention. We made cavatelli, fettuccine and ravioli with both semolina and water and 00 flour and egg. The best part is that the restaurant cooked the pasta we made and we sat down to enjoy our handmade pastas. They served good wine and a light and airy dolce, too. On our last night in Rome, we decided to go back for dinner at That's Amore and the food was fantastic! We even got to see Fernando again for a second goodbye. I would recommend this tour just for the cooking class alone!
While the walking tour was quite good, the cooking class was exceptional. Fernando made it an experience we will never forget!
If you are currently thinking "this sounds goods" "shall we?" Here is the answer.... It's is good in fact more than and do it, do it!!!! This experience was the highlight of our week. The tour was informative and paced nicely with clear communication and an approachable guide. Just past the trevi fountain we broke off into groups and entered the amazing restaurant which became our host. We were taught the art of making pasta ( will not give too much away) by an amazing delightful, charismatic chef and ate and drank the lunchtime away in an amazingly atmospheric place. This really is worth every penny.
