The pasta making class was a lot of fun. My wife and I along with our three teenage daughters all had a great time. The guide and the chef were very friendly and patient in explaining the pasta making techniques. And the dinner was wonderful! Highly recommended.

This was one of our favorite things we did on our trip to Italy. The facility we cooked in was beautiful and comfortable. Lorenzo was a great teacher and chef - the food (pasta AND gelato) was delicious! We even came home and bought the same gelato machine that we used in class. We'd highly recommend this tour to ANYone.
