We were in Florence with our children ages 11,13,16 and looking for more active experience to mix things up. Tried this class and were very happy with everything. The groups ranged from couple to extended families, the pace of the instruction was great, and the teachers had wonderful personalities. The kids and my husband and I loved the experience. Good family fun- we will be making pizza homemade now!
Our guide, Daniel, was charming and entertaining--as well as very skilled--as he took us through the process of making a pizza from the point of dry flour to hot bubbling cheese coming out of the oven. And while our doughs were rising under a wet cloth, he took us also through the process of making a lovely chocolate gelato. Our kids, aged 9 and 11, came along and also found the whole experience delightful. Daniel was equally good with adults and kids, as he was both informative and entertaining. The whole experience was a welcome respite/retreat from several days wandering the hot summer streets of Italian cities. Our pizza, of course, wasn't as good as what we've found in the great restaurants of Florence, but it was so much more satisfying to have made it ourselves!
Paula and Giovanni guided us through making the pizza and gelato wonderfully.
Really fun experience with Giuseppe and Paula. This is perfect family tour. Both instructors were interactive and welcoming. The food we made was delicious, and the atmosphere was very fun!
This course was great fun! The facilitator Daniele was very knowledgeable and made us all laugh too. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Would recommend this to everyone.
This class was an awesome experience! The instructors, Daniel and Giuseppe made it so much fun to learn how to make pizza and gelato. The finished meal was excellent and it was topped off with delicious red wine. I am looking forward to making these recipes soon. I would absolutely recommend this as a wonderful activity while in Florence
The instructors were great, food amazing, and the entire experience was fun for the family. A great way to spend an evening in Florence.

What a fun tour, there were about 12 of us total one family with kids and the rest adults. It was a 10 minute walk to the cooking school. Both of the chefs were friendly and knew what they were doing. The gelato making portion wasn't as hands on, they more showed how it was done with use of volunteers from the class. I would have liked for the to show not only how to make cream gelato, but also the fruit version. The pizza making portion was 100 hands on, pizza made from scratch from the mixing of ingredients until it went in the oven. I would definitely recommend
Really a great family activity for the last night in Florence. Well organized, informative, entertaining and tasty.
We had a great time at this cooking class. A mixed group of teens and adults, and this was just the thing for all of us! Alessio was fantastic - and we are all excited to show of our skills when we get home. Highly recommend!
So much fun cooking with Daniel and Paula! We learned a lot and made friends with other people taking the class!
Alessio and Paola were great. It was fun, entertaining and informative.
We had a great time at the cooking class! Our guide/chef, Giuseppe, was wonderful, as were the rest of the staff at the cooking school. It was a great evening and one of the highlights of our time in Florence!
It was a lot of fun. Davide and Giuseppe were very personable. We received a lot of tips on how to make pizza. They gave hands-on instruction, and the wine was delicious. They gave good information on how to pick a good gelato. Not everyone made the gelato it was the chef and three of the group who acted as sous chefs. We were all able to watch, though and get a good feel on how to make it. We were with a good group of people. I would definitely recommend this.
This was our second time with the same tour. Once again, it was another great experience! Teachers were informative with great humor!
Giuseppe and Paolo made this experience wonderful. Full of great information, explained very well, my two children got to be soux chefs for the night and we all loved every minute. Would do again and would definitely recommend to anyone.
This was an excellent experience that I strongly recommend to anyone interested in pizza and gelato! Our instructor, Davide, taught us how to make pizza and gelato in a very easy way. We were able to enjoy our work with some delicious wine as well. If you get a small class, even better!
It doesn't get any better than pizza and gelato, unless it's learning how to do both in Italy. What a great experience for the whole family. This is one of those memories you'll be able to relive every time you make pizza at home. I've made pizza at home before but what I've learned here will make it so much better.
