Super fun evening with Debora! She’s a great host with a great sense of humor. We were 7 people that we’re late to arrive (and depart!) but she was so accommodating through it all. She gave a warm welcome with prosecco and focaccia, she was so patient with the pasta making process insisting that each of us have our turn, the whole session was so well organized and of course she’s a great chef with great tips! Proud to say that our home made meal was simply delicious! Thank you Debora!

Lovely host and really encouraging with my lack of cooking skills! Her home was lovely and we immediately felt at-home. Cooked a lovely dinner, relaxed atmosphere and great playlist too. Really recommend doing this.

This was an amazing cooking class! The instructor was fun and helped everyone create a delicious pizza. The gelato and Prosecco paired perfectly.

Attilio was a great host! We had many laughs and enjoyed amazing food. Definitely recommend for a nice meal made with great company.

Beatrice was so much fun! We learned a great new way to make pasta!
