    Highly recommend taking this class. The instructor knew everything and was a chef/chef teacher himself. It was great hands on experience, learning the techniques of making a pizza. Definitely would do again

    A superb evening with our Chef who explained science of pizza and gelato. Our 8 yr old’s best activity so far. An excellent night out. Book early not to disappoint.

    Catarina was so patient and gave us a 10/10 experience. So many things I’d never know about food in Italy, I got the chance to learn from her. This was such a cool experience to say I got to do in Italy. A must do.

    Class was well-organized, informative, and very fun! Tomasso did a fantastic job. He was encouraging and helpful throughout. It was a full class with three tables of 6 people at each. The whole group was friendly and seemed to all enjoy the experience. Pizza had fresh ingredients. Gelato was delicious! I don’t drink wine, but hubby said it was pretty good. They also provide soft drinks and water with the pizza. Highly recommend!

    We took this class during our trip celebrating my mother in law's 50th birthday and had such a wonderful time. Catarina was beyond spectacular, incredibly informative and just all around a lovely instructor. We learned so much about the culture surround Gelato in Florence as well as how to make a perfect home made pizza. Would recommend this class to just about anyone.
