We loved the cooking class! We did it as a family and would recommend to other families. Our instructor was fabulous and made it so much fun. And we actually learned how to make pasta and tiramisu. We will use the recipes at home!

Probably the most interesting experience I have ever done! Making cocktails whilst making pasta was really fun. The hosts were engaging and funny and the location was great. I would do this again tomorrow!

Fantastic experience! Well worth doing when in Rome. We booked the 7.30pm spot and it was great fun to make our own food and eat it. The instructor was brilliant and made the experience.

Wonderful experience. The restaurant staff are very welcoming. The activity is not too long and the cook is explaining very well. Plus the food was very good!!

One of the coolest things I did in Rome. Can't wait to impress folks back home with what we learnt.
