Our market tour with Rita was excellent! We did great tastings of Olive oil, balsamic vinegars, sauces, cheeses and meats. She was so knowledgeable and had a wonderful cheerful personality! After the tour we went to the restaurant and learned how to make dough with Leonardo. He was also amazing and we learned how to make the perfect pizza dough. It was an amazing experience and we loved every minute!!!

It was a great experience. We were a small group and the chef was very professional, entertaining and knowledgeable. We learned to make pasta, tiramisu and ravioli and they were cooked expertly with various sauces. It was a great few hours, and we even stayed longer chatting with the other couple.

Everyone was so so lovely. I booked my 3 year old in the class and he was made to feel very special and welcomed despite being the only child there. I would recommend this for everyone whatever your age. Thank you to the all those involved.

Maria was so helpful and a great teacher. The food was wonderful and overall the experience was well worth the cost.
