Exceeded expectations by a mile! Chef Vittoria customized the menu to my tastes and we cooked and ate excellent food. Not to mention the trip to the markets and Chef's tips and observations along the way. Without reservation, I would recommend this experience to anyone who loves food! Ten stars!!

This was the most AMAZING cooking class I've ever taken. It far exceeded my expectations. The chef was so awesome and helpful. We learned how to cook 4 different pasta dishes in addition to eggplant parmigiani and tiramisu. The 2 other students in the class with me were also blown away by the chef and his teaching and cooking techniques. I can't wait to go back to Italy again next year and sign up for another class. If you do anything in Rome, you MUST take this class. It is so worth the time and money. Trust me, you will not regret it. If anything, you will regret not taking it. Loved, loved, loved it!!!

It was a really good experience from start to finish. The only complaint I have is we were told we would be sent the recipes for the dishes we made and nothing has been emailed to us yet. We really want to recreate the experience back home, but it may only be in our memories.

My husband and I wanted to do something different as we are in Rome pretty frequently. I took the liberty of booking this Cooking Lesson since I love to cook and it was super easy to book online. It was a wonderful experience in which we learned some new things, and had a wonderful lunch on a rooftop with the most incredible view of Rome I have ever seen. Vittoria was lovely. If you are considering this lesson, just book it!

Instructor was excellent - informative, interesting, great sense of humor! Activity including going to the market, visiting a butcher shop/bakery prior to actual cooking lesson. Lessons were paced for the ability level of the participants. Small class allowed for hands-on with all sharing food preparation duties. Dishes varied and very tasty. Being able to sit down at the end of the meal to enjoy the fruits of our labor made it a most memorable experience!
