Amazing. Chef Monica was organized detailed and made this experience simply enjoyable. I recommend this to anyone that comes to Roma and wants a different experience.
Loved the instructor. Visiting market and walking through Jewish ghetto was very educational. Cooking class was definitely hands on and lunch was great. One of the best things we did in Rome.
FABULOUS TOUR! Chef Monica was personable, fun, good with the kids and professional! We were with a small group of 12 that included kids close in age to my 10 and 11 year old as well as couples and families. This meal was, by far, our best tasting and experience in our 16 days in Italy ! bravo!
Everything was perfect. Beautiful kitchen and very informative chef and assistants. Making pasta was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend this tour.
This was a blast! Our chef and her helper were fantastic. The food was amazing and the wine was plentiful! We met new friends and I have to say, the best cooking class I have ever taken in Italy!
Incredible! Had a wonderful time! The Chef was delightful. You start off with a trip to a beautiful market and pick up your ingredients. The walk is beautiful and very enjoyable. The lesson is leisurely...plenty of time to ask questions and learn. And you do learn so much. T

We had a fantastic day and Paolo was engaging and taught us all many different things-from taking us to the open market, a meat shop and cheese shop, a bakery and had some fantastic pizza and then explained the area as we walked to the kitchen where we all learned/participated in how to make several different pastas and sauces. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Rome!
My cooking class in Rome was exceptional. I was very fortunate that I was a class of one. Chef Paolo treated the class as i would expect any other even with only one student. We shopped for our ingredients at interesting places including Campo del Fiori. As an experienced cook, I can say I learned several new techniques and as a class of one got to perform a lot of the prep work. Much fun. The recipies were all excellent. Could not finish all the courses on the menu, but tasted everything. I would recommend this experience to family and friends and already have.
This was a terrific tour. Paulo, Nicholetta and Marco were wonderful guides and we had a lot of fun going to the market and doing the food prep for the outstanding meal. Only change I would suggest is to also let us do some of the actual cooking, too.
highlight of our trip to Rome, no doubt! The food was amazing and we learned a lot! Our chefs were funny and friendly and it was great to interact with some fellow travelers. Highly recommend.
Our chef Paulo is clearly a talented chef and was a great teacher. The three experienced cooks in our group all picked up many new skills and ideas and the meal we helped to prepare was among the best I have had in my month in Rome.
This was so much fun!!! I had way too much wine while we were cooking so I don't remember everything but from what I do remember and from watching my videos later and looking at my photos I can tell you that I had a great time!!! We met our chef Martina in the morning and went to the farmers market to do our shopping. There were just four of us in the class and I think that is a perfect size. We walked to the house where we had our cooking lesson. I had read a review where someone said it took 45 minutes. It actually took about 10 minutes. The home was lovely and really well equipped for our class. We started drinking and cooking. They keep the wine coming. : We made three different types of pasta from scratch. We made a meat dish and we made dessert. It was all wonderful but you are absolutely stuffed by the time you get leave. There is no way you could possibly eat everything you make. After you leave there you can go to the owner's restaurant and pick up your little board that you use to make one of the pastas that we made. I have to admit I don't remember much about this at all. : We took a cab there with our new best friends Matt and Charlotte who were in the class with us. We met at 9:15 in the morning and we were done around 2:00. I wish I could emphasize more what a great time this class was. There is no pressure to do anything just right. It is very laid back and they do all of the cleaning up. : Later in the week I took a tour to the Amalfi Coast and I met 5 other people who had also taken this class and they agreed that it was one of the best times they had in Rome also. So, it isn't just the wine talking. :
Fabulous tour with hosts, Martina and Nicoletta! They greeted us promptly at 9am and took us to the market while providing us background of the sites and culture. Martina is an expert Michelin 3 chef who gave us direction on the best foods to choose for our lesson. Martina and Nicoletta work well together while exchanging humor and instructions to the group. We made 3 types of homemade pasta that were beyond delicious and a veal entree too. If only they were in my kitchen now to guide me with their skill! The day past quickly as we had so much enjoyment in the 5 hours with them. Sincerely thank you for a spectacular cooking day, the chef Martina and Nicoletta! Buon appetito!
This was a great tour to take while in Rome. Nicolina and Martina were fantastic hosts and I learned a lot throughout the day. We started by going to the market and we learned a little about the food we'd be using. Then, we went to a beautiful apartment to cook. We made 3 different kinds of pasta, a veal dish they accommodated for vegetarians and a dessert, which was absolutely delicious. It was definitely worth the money and a good morning spent in Rome.
Best part of our entire trip!! Paulo was amazing, and the food was even better!
A fantastic day, filled with information, experience, and great food. Our host was entertaining, friendly, and knowledgeable, the day well organized, and the location was great. Thoroughly recommended!
I can't say enough about this experience. From the shopping at the market to the cooking of the food it was the best experience I had in Rome. Martina and Nicolette were the best and I got to meet Chef Fabio. If you go to Rome you must experience this cooking lesson. I learned so much and had a great time doing it.

This was the second time I took this tour and it did not disappoint. Although somewhat different from the first time I took this same tour, it was just as much fun and enjoyable.
We had a marvelous time learning some of the basics of Italian cooking, especially choosing good ingredients. Making home-made pasta is not as hard as it seems! Paolo and his assistant Marco were the best!
A wonderful morning and afternoon! This was the highlight of our 3 week vacation -
This was a fun class even if you do not do much cooking. Learning how to make pasta and homemade tomato sauce was easier than I thought. If you have already seen the highlights of Rome and want something different, this cooking lesson is for you.
