The only reason I'm giving this 5 stars is because I cannot give it 6 stars! Our initial guide, Richie, was very helpful and a great translator/navigator in getting us through the metro and to the restaurant. He then supported the real star of the evening, Laretta! Her class was absolutely fantastic, and very fun for my whole family. The food was delicious and plentiful, and I would recommend this as a MUST DO for anyone visiting Rome.
Excellent class. Very involved in the process and never thought I could cook food that delicious. Chef and guide were full of personality and made it like a family dinner
Booked it for a surprise for my wife and her friend. They really enjoyed it.
This was a wonderful experience for my husband and me. The chef was an excellent teacher and our guide was her excellent assistant. We had great fun, learned about the Roman cuisine, made fresh pasta and had a wonderful dinner.

We really enjoyed this tour with local Italian speaking chef, and interpreter. It was fun, authentic and yummy :). Learnt how to make fettuccini and ravioli highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time learning how to make the different pastas and sauces. The chief and guide were both knowledgeable.
Our tour was great! Our guide/translator Holly was awesome! She was very informative and knowledgeable! The restaurant also was able to deliver the tiramisu that was on the trip details so she gave us one of each of the desserts that the place made and then took us to a place that is known for the best tiramisu in Rome, which I must say was amazing! We enjoyed the class, had a great time and were very satisfied!
This was great! The chef was very friendly and our tour guide Holly was wonderful. We met outside and went into a restaurant and got started. Then dinner the food we prepared! was served to Holly, my wife, and I in a private dining room. 100 recommend this and will likely be doing it again the next time I am in Rome.
Just the experience is worth everything to me. I Learned how to cook n I ate food with a chef. The onLy thing I did not Like was cooking at the chef's house however, we were given a paid ride there and the house was nice, but it's better to do it at a restaurant to see a reaL atmosphere.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening with Holly, Chef Laura, and one other attendee. Holly was a great tour guide meeting us at the Colosseum and escorting us to Chef Laura's residence via Metro. Chef Laura was a wonderful host and an enthusiastic instructor on the fine art of making pasta. We loved learning how to make our own pasta and enjoyed the feast afterwards! We are looking forward to testing our skills at home now that we have the recipes and instructions provided by Savor Italy.
So glad we found this class and highly recommend Savor Italy Tours to anybody interested in this type of activity, they will treat you right!
This was a perfect sized class of 5 with a great host, a great chef and great people. Holly took the time to take pictures for everyone, Chef Laura was amazing and so kind. Everyone was able to learn, participate and eat some of our great food. If you want a cooking class that isn't a full day this is TOP NOTCH!
One of the highlights of our trip! Chef Laura was great, and the ravioli's and pasta were AMAZING!!! She made making pasta so easy and delicious. LOVED IT!!!
Authentic Italian cooking (and eating)!
We made pasta from scratch and had a lot of laughs in the process. Also learnt how to make the best bruschetta that we tasted on our Italy trip - and we ate a lot of bruschetta!!
Paolo and Lya are lovely and a lot of fun. We had a great night. 5 stars!
The cooking class was great. It ended up just being two of us. We learned a lot and had so much fun.
Great class. Enjoyed it quite a bit. If they had offered more wine after we finished the bottle, would be 5 stars :
This was a lot of fun. The only issue I have is with your write up of this. This cooking class was in a cooking school not someone's home and we had 10 people in the class not the max of 6 people you alluded to. It appears everyone booked through Viator as well and were expecting the above. Once we got over the change of venue and what to expect, the class was lovely and the chef was wonderful. Lots of fun. You may want to include the approximate time for the class as well. It is from 4 to 5 hours long.
This was a great activity for an evening, Holly, our host/translator was so wonderful! We didn and #39;t get to cook as much as we and #39;d hoped but we ate heaps and they catered for gluten free really well.
My fiancé and I were very excited for this tour. The class was supposed to be for the second night that we were in Rome, but it was rescheduled due to one of the chefs being sick. I completely understand this, however it was unorganized after that. We waited in the center of Piazza Navona and met our guide who informed us that all of the other couples weren't able to make it so it would be just us. We didn't mind this considering it was our honeymoon, but when we got to the restaurant we waited for 45 minutes before the chef came out to start our class. After waiting about 20 minutes they finally gave us a glass of water. We soon found out that the chef never wrote down that we were coming, so we were entirely unexpected. They set us up on the small table in the back where we made pasta and ravioli, which was great. The description of the class did mention, however, that we would learn how to make multiple pastas, bruschetta, and tiramisu. We put pre-made bruschetta on toast and then we were merely served tiramisu for dessert, this was slightly disappointing considering I paid 175 to make only a dish of pasta. My husband and I sat down with the guide to eat and we saw two cockroaches during this time-- ruining our appetites a tiny bit, as you can imagine. Lastly, we were promised the recipes for everything that we made and didn't make, which I have not received and it's been 3 months since the class. Overall, we enjoyed each other's company and loved making the pasta together. However, we were both disappointed after leaving there that we had spent so much money on something when there were comparable cooking classes for around the same price that were most likely more organized and included more actual cooking time.
