This was a fun filled evening. Antoniette is a supurb cook. The evening was great fun, and we felt like we have always known them. Can't wait to try making the pasta ourselves. This was a highlight of our trip.

We visited Antionetta and her husband during our honeymoon in July. This was without a doubt the highlight of the whole trip. It was only my wife and I and we felt so welcome and comfortable with Antionetta and her husband. We made fresh pasta and helped pick fresh vegetables in their own garden. The voucher claims the whole experience is about 3 hours but we stayed and chatted to Antionetta and her husband for about 5 hours. We enjoyed it so much that we are looking at going back with our parents.

We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to feel like a typical Italian for a night and wants to try some genuine local cuisine that you help make yourself.

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

This class was a highlight on my recent trip. I have always wanted to take a cooking class in Italy and this was just perfect. Antoinetta was the best teacher and hostess possible. We learned how to make several Italian dishes just the way her mother taught her. I especially enjoyed that fact that we were learning in her home and then sat down to eat a 5 course Italian dinner with her. The cost of this class is a bargain and the experience was amazing.

What can I say .. . Antionetta was amazing and we loved meeting her family and the animals on the ranch. We want to come again for sure. Don't miss this great experience you will come away with good memories and a full belly!

This cooking class was fantastic and better than expected. Anto was so warm and engaging and made us all feel at home. We made fresh pasta, fresh tomato sauce with herbs. We were given a tour of the farm and as we were cooking a number of her neighbors dropped in to say hello. You really got to feel the rhythm of an italian country neighborhood. We had a 4 course meal with lots of wine and even desert wine!!! There were 6 people in the class and everyone got involved in the process. Highly recommend the experience. Glad we did the lunch session since we were there for 5 hours!

We arrived an hour early to make sure we could find it, since we had to drive there. There was a mix-up, the tour company told them we were to be there for the lunch lesson. Our printout confirmed the dinner lesson I choose. We ended up being the only couple, at first we were very nervous, but that quickly passed since the family made us feel at home even if there was a language barrier. There was an interpreter, so that made it easy. The only hands on part was the pasta. We watched how the bruschetta and sauce was made. Dinner was delicious! It was one of the best meals we had in Italy! We had Bruschetta, meat and cheese, bread, pasta, meat balls, and desert. Antonietta gave us a sweet parting gift.

Amazing, highlight of our Lucca stay. Antonietta made us feel like family in her lovely home. We enjoyed learning how to make bruschetta and a traditional fresh pasta dish, as part of a typical Italian family meal. Our interrupter, Lucrezia, did a wonderful job making conversation very easy. We hope to visit with Antonietta and her family on a return trip and make another meal together!

We learnt how to make pasta, then cooked and ate it as part of a lovely dinner. We would have liked to learn how to cook a couple of other simple recipes at the same time. The cook was very good - recommend the experience. As the villa is about 5kms from Lucca some form of transport is necessary - we had a hire car so was not a problem.

It was a lovely evening with Chef Antonietta and her family. Because there were only 2 of us for this evening we felt we had a very personal experience and good conversation! We made pasta and some meat and had it with the sauce she had already prepared. All delicious!
