    What an incredible day. We had the most delicious, and memorable time with Chef Elisa and Roy. We started off in the Roman countryside in a beautiful, small town called Mazzano Romano where we went to 3 markets; the first was to purchase our vegetables (artichokes, tomatoes, garlic, broccoliromano), the second to purchase our meats (free range chicken, beef, and sausages), and the third market was where we bought our ricotta, eggs, and bread. Then we headed to a castle built in the 1500s and made magic! We learned how to make Nonna’s Pizza, bruschetta with sausage, 4 kinds of pasta, chicken cacciatore, and chocolate lava cake. Elisa and Roy were terrific — so patient, friendly, and funny! The day was filled with learning and laughs. Definitely recommend!!!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our day! Monica and her assistant were amazing, caring, thoughtful! The food was delicious! The small town was beautiful and charming! Highly recommended!

    We had a great day with Marco and Roy in Mazzana Romana. Although the same or similar classes are offered in Rome, we very much enjoyed the trip to the town of Mazzana Romana and the change from the City. All of the logistics went smoothly and on time. The shopping in Mazzana was fun and location for the lesson was charming. The food turned out to be delicious. But Marco and Roy were the best part of the trip. They were easy to be with and yet very professional. We truly did learn about Italian cooking and had a wonderful day doing it.

    I had so much fun in this class! Elisa and Cornelia were both phenomenal. It's quite a drive to Mazzano Romano but the town itself is very nice and gives you a good small town feel. I enjoyed the market aspect of the tour where they will take you to a local butcher and other stores. We helped in cooking a lot of things - 6 to be exact. And since we did this on my birthday, they even baked a chocolate cake for me! I highly recommend this tour. Pro tip: try to skip breakfast if you can, you're definitely going to need the extra space!

    It was fabulous! Loved the drive into the countryside, the local shopping for our meal was delightful at 3 stops. Once secured, we walked to the home of a chef and were taught as we gathered around the kitchens island. This was hands on and so delightful as we got to know each other and learn from our female chef and her 2 assistants. They were so professional, courteous and delightful! Our meal was delicious! And served In The dining room of his home—-magnificent! GRAZIE, chef Eliy!

    Terrible, disappointing service. Very disappointed with Viator and do not recommend this particular experience.

    This was one of the most enjoyable and fun excursions we experienced! 4 of us plus 2 chefs and sous chef went shopping for our cheese, meat, veggies and fruit which we used in our many course dinner prep. We then experienced hands-on pasta making, dessert and a meat dish preparation followed by cooking and dining on our creations with lots of wine. So much fun - we laughed and learned; all this in a village home that was several hundred years old. A leisurely pace and it was indeed hands-on. I highly recommend this excursion. Also, BUY THE COOKBOOK! You will not regret the decision to come to this cooking lesson.

    We were so fortunate to find that our chef is world renowned Fabio Bongianni. We went to his 15th century home in a country village of about 1000 people, Mazzano Romano. We enjoyed going to the market to pick the fruits, vegetables, meats and many different tomatoes to make the different courses of meals. Cornelia, Fabios assistant was very charming. Fabio and Cornelia had a special rhythm that made it seem very easy. It was truly a learning experience. We went to many tours while in Rome, but I must say, this was a highlight. I want to do it again when I return. Thank you, Fabio and thank you Cornelia.

    Next to the Papal audience, our most favorite part of the week-long trip to Rome. Leeza and Cornelia were such gracious hostesses and a lot of fun. SOOOO MUCH fabulous food (my sister and I even licked the tiramisu cups clean- it was that good!). The countryside apartment was beautiful, shopping at the local markets was a fun cultural experience. If you are on the fence about this tour, just fall off and do it! You won't regret it.

    This was an amazing day! The village where you cook is stunning, the food and wine are incredible. I would do this day again in a heartbeat. Worth every penny.
