They team who hosted us was great, very nice and hands on. The making of pizza was a great family experience. Thanks so much!
This was SO fun! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and Davide was such a great instructor. Definitely would recommend doing some sort of cooking class while in Florence, but we did especially enjoy this one!
Fantastic experience!!! Lorenzo, our tour guide was prompt, and friendly. He took us on a quick walking tour through the city, and brought us to Davide's kitchen. Davide was an excellent host. He taught us the secrets to making a delicious pizza, and then put our knowledge to the test. We started by creating the dough, and while we let it rise, we made a chocolate base for our gelato. Once the gelato base was ready and poured into the gelato maker, we returned to our rising dough, and stretched it to the perfect size and dressed it with herbs, sauce, and various meats and cheese to our taste. The best part of the class was when our pizzas came out of the oven, and we got to eat them! For dessert, we ate the gelato we had created earlier. Delicious!
Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience, and is one I would highly recommend, and would even do it again.
The kids and I had so much fun. Even my hubby got into it. Great class for kids and food was good!
Our family of 4 (two daughter (14 and 17) attended the cooking class and we all had a great time. Short walk from the meeting point, the chefs were wonderful and entertaining and we actually learned hands-on how to make great pizza dough for our own pizzas. Gelato was less hands-on but great as well!!
The Gelato and Pizza making course was excellent. Paola and Lorenzo were wonderful and the course was such fun. We went with our two girls 7 and 10 who became Paola's sous chef for the Gelato making, this made their holiday! Paola was lovely, a great chef and she gave us lots of great tips and information, Lorenzo was so friendly and very welcoming, a great pair thank you so much.
This was a highlight of our trip to Italy. I wanted to take a cooking class and knew that pizza and gelato would be a hit with my family 2 adults, 2 kids age 20 and 16. We all enjoyed the class, the pizza and the gelato. We also enjoyed talking with the other people in the class. We are looking forward to trying our new recipes at home!
This was an awesome experience and I highly recommend a cooking class during your trip to Florence. After we did this pizza/gelato class we tried to book a different one but they were all filled up. My 7 year old nephew loved the class, and it was his favorite day of the entire trip. My parents, and my husband also really enjoyed. It was definitely one the highlights of our trip as well. The cook was awesome and friendly and funny.

Fantastic experience, my two younger kids 6 and 9 had fun too :- a must do !!!
Our family of four had such a good time! Giuseppe involved out two girls 6 and 4 in the Gelato making process and although shy at first, they absolutely loved it. The class is informative, yet, very relaxed and heaps of fun. What a great way to spend an evening!
Fantastic evening with fantastic guide Paula. Highly recommend.
Tour was great, Paola and Guissepe made it so much fun for my family! We all enjoyed our pizza and Gelato! We all went home and made pizza!
We had Alessio as our guide and he was awesome! The demonstration and making of the pizza and gelato was so fun and yummy! Would highly recommend.
I went with my 2 teenage kids. It was a lot of fun, the teachers, Paola and Daniel, were very friendly and entertaining. The class was full-24 people-but everyone had a clear view of what was going on in the front and got individual attention when needed. I highly recommend it-tons of fun!
This was a fantastic experience! I loved being able to have the experience of making pizza from scratch, and watching as guest chefs prepared gelato chocolate to be shared among the group. Both tasted delicious! The instructors spoke slowly and clearly, modeled exactly what we needed to do, and circulated to help participants as needed. My one suggestion would be to break the instruction down to a step-by-step process the instructors tended to model all the steps at once, and then sent participants off to work independently. Providing a step-by-step process would help non-chefs such as myself to be more successful in preparing our pizzas. But this is a minor quibble the time flew by, I really enjoyed meeting my groupmates from all over the world, and the food was fantastic! Highly recommended.
Best of the 6 tours taken this trip!!! We got upgraded to the 3 hour tour that took us out to a winery out of the city in Chianti. Spend a few extra dollars and take the 69 euro tour rather than the 49 euro tour...well worth it I'm not a shill for any company,,,just a tourist like all of you reading thisFun, memorable and I so enjoyed myself. Alessio was a fantastic chef/guide/teacher. He was witty, charming, a great teacher and his English was great. I will tell everyone I know who plans to go to Florence to take this tour!!!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the class. The chefs were really engaging and kept us and the kids entertained while we learned the arts of perfect pizza dough and gelato. Fantastic!
This was the highlight of our time in Florence !! We loved the chefs as they were entertaining and informative ! The pizza we made was fabulous and we enjoyed eating it all, along with the wine ... I brought along my nine year old son and he became the superstar chef of the evening ... They went above and beyond to make sure that everyone had a terrific time and learned the art of pizza making ! Next time we are in Florence this will be our first stop !
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!
