  • A mi esposa y yo nos gustó mucho la experiencia, cocinar con Andre y con el guia Richard fué algo unico. Despues, la cena que nosostros mismos hicimos y la sorpresa final el postre estaban deliciosos. Hubo un problema en el dia que deveria ser, pero lo resolvieron y hicimos todo el dia siguiente. Una grande empresa no és la que no comete errores, pero la que los corrige bien y deja el cliente satisfecho. Nota 10 a Wonder Rome y a Richard, nuestro guia.

  • Delicious dinner! Felt rushed in the kitchen by the chef who was also trying to make meals for restaurant guests. Only made pasta both of which were delicious but was under the impression that we would be making the bruschetta and dessert too. Would recommend just clarifying that in the information about the tour.

  • This cooking course was fantastic, it was in an actual restaurant kitchen and we had a translator as the chef didn't know English. Only down side to the experience is we didn't get sent the recipes. Definitely recommend..

  • Interpreter was great, knowledgeable of what the chef was relaying to me. Chef was fun to watch and learn from him on the making of pasta. The picture shows what looks like some ones house, you actually go to a restaurant to cook.

  • My wife's and my favorite tour in Italy, and we did 4 different tours. When I signed up I thought Small Group meant 10 people max, but it actually was just my wife and I. The translator/organizer met us in a public plaza near the restaurant we were going to cook at, and she was very friendly and spoke excellent English. My wife and I made carbonara, gnocchi, and bruschetta, and we ate all 3 plus some tiramisu. After our whole trip, my wife and I agreed that this was our favorite part of the entire trip. The chef himself was really nice, although he didn't speak any English. The restaurant we cooked at was a nice restaurant too. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. The organizer promised us the recipes, but it's been over a month and we haven't got those yet, although she did say there were always problems getting the recipes to email inboxes, because they are frequently marked as spam, so I suspect that is what happened. Other than that, a 10/10 experience!

  • Overall, we enjoyed our time together it was just too pricey and not as described. The experience ended an hour early, we didn't make the sauces, tiramisu, or bruschetta just the pasta, and only got 1 glass of wine. The guide was great and a good translator. The chef was also great. Still no recipes

  • What we did do on the tour was great! Loved the experience. However what we did do is not what I purchased from Viator. Didn't get to go to a home kitchen, make any of the sauces and only learnt 2 pasta shapes when the voucher said 3. Only got half what I paid for. Very dissatisfied with Viator.

  • Was a short walk from the meeting point. Quiet restaurant. Lovely translator. Well worth it

  • The lessons and the food in this small-group four of us total cooking class were so good. The tag team of Richie the translator and Loretta the chef were a good pair, and Loretta spoke more English than I expected. The time flew by quickly, and all of the food that we made was very tasty. The room could have been a little stuffy if we hadn't gotten along with our fellow classmates so well a little background music would be great!. The restaurant is outside the heart of the city, so we followed Richie on the subway, which was a nice experience.

  • A fun evening We were at a small restaurant and it was just the two of us. Our chef did not speak English so we had to rely on our tour guide to translate which was a bit awkward although she did a fabulous job. We've made gnocchi since we've been home and it turned out almost as good. Still waiting for the promised recipes though....
