the tour was very late getting to where we were to meet and then we had to deal with one guide and two different languages to deal with. not on the walking tour web site.it was also way to short and not much more than we had seen the day before on our own. The cooking class was way too cool and everything we thought it would be. the best part was we only had 3 people in our class and got very good one on one help and more explanation on the in's and out's of how to and why to do it a certain way. loved it and will be using our new tricks at home at our next cooking day with our kids, would really be a shame to miss this class so take it and you will love it.
This was a good tour, the best part is of course the cooking class. The guide was very informative with the history of Rome. We were given some time to explore on our own in the Pantheon. The cooking class was fun, it was held at a restaurant called That's Amore. The person who taught us was Fernando, he was patient and encouraging. We made 2 types of pasta and they cooked it for us. The food was so delicious, unfortunately we had no room for dessert.
Fernando was wonderful and it turned out to be the best meal I had in Italy!
The cooking class was an excellent way to spend the afternoon. Set in the beautiful part of Rome just down from the Trevi fountain is That's Amore restaurant where I had my cooking class. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and chef Fabio was a wealth of knowledge. My only regret is I wasn't able to eat everything afterwards. If you love cooking or just want something different to do then definitely sign up for the cooking class.
We had so much fun!!!
We spent four days in Rome and the cooking class at "That's Amore" was definitely the highlight of our visit.
The walking tour was fine, gave us a sense of the area and a quick visit to the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain - but cooking with our small group (6 people) and Fernando in the middle of the restaurant was just so much fun!
Fernando taught us how to make three different pasta noodles from scratch, cavatelli, ravioli and with any mistakes we made linguini. :-)
This was not a boring class, we visited, laughed and had a blast through the whole thing - the ravioli pasta was so long we had to stretch out the door into the street. Random people stopped to snap our picture - ha!
Once the pasta was done it was wisked into the kitchen where it magically turned into three fantastic dishes, which of course we ate - along with a couple bottles of wine and scrumptious dessert and coffee.
We will cherish the memories from this afternoon forever!
FANTASTIC! Such fun! Walking tour was nice – then went to the restaurant. Staff there was wonderful and the food was EXCELLENT. Our group of 11 actually handmade the 3 pastas we had for lunch – and then the staff made the sauces. We ate as a group, and were given a website for the recipes!!
This was a very enjoyable tour. Just the right of amount of walkiing and then cooking! It has inspired me to make pasta at home! It was delicious and Fernando was an excellent teacher.
Great tour, great cooking class! But I would consider the trip to the cook's home next time, just because the video looked like so much fun. Tour included Trevi, which I loved!
Our guide was delightful and the cooking class was so much fun. Fernando and his team were so fun!
We were with a large group of friends and it was a blast. The walking tour part was not really fun. The guide was bored and boring. Next time I'd rather just make pasta, drink wine and eat!!!!
We absolutely loved our cooking class! Fernando was an excellent teacher and helped us turn out delicious ravioli as well as cavatelli pasta. The cooking class joined a larger walking group that was 45 min late in arriving, but the tour guide was great. I would take a cooking class here again.
Walking tour was ok. Guide was nearly 20 minutes late and not much personality. Class was great -- memorable experience and wonderful food and wine. We highly recommend L'Amore restaurant for cooking classes or just dining.
