    This cooking experience was one of the highlights of our trip. It was great to actually cook in the host (Antonietta)'s home in a traditional atmosphere where we learnt to make pasta by hand under her careful guidance and then sit down to a 3 course meal with wine which included the pasta we had made. There were 9 of us and it really felt like we were having a lunch with friends.

    This particular evening served to be our most favorable during the two week trip to Italy. The location is fantastic. The hospitality is genuine and we just couldn’t rave enough about this experience. If we could rate it higher than a “5”, it would be a solid “10”.

    Don’t miss out!

    We loved learning how to make pasta and visiting with our hostess. Our hostess could not have been any nicer. She was lovely!!

    My friend and I had a great time at our cooking lesson near Lucca. It was a family affair and we thoroughly enjoyed making pasta and then having lunch with the family.

    We were hosted by Antonieta and Pietro. They were an absolute joy. So welcoming. Our translator Luchresia was so nice also. We did our cooking class and then had a wonderful meal. We truly felt like we were one of the family. I would definately recommend this experience.

    This was a fun filled evening. Antoniette is a supurb cook. The evening was great fun, and we felt like we have always known them. Can't wait to try making the pasta ourselves. This was a highlight of our trip.

    We visited Antionetta and her husband during our honeymoon in July. This was without a doubt the highlight of the whole trip. It was only my wife and I and we felt so welcome and comfortable with Antionetta and her husband. We made fresh pasta and helped pick fresh vegetables in their own garden. The voucher claims the whole experience is about 3 hours but we stayed and chatted to Antionetta and her husband for about 5 hours. We enjoyed it so much that we are looking at going back with our parents.

    We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to feel like a typical Italian for a night and wants to try some genuine local cuisine that you help make yourself.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

    This class was a highlight on my recent trip. I have always wanted to take a cooking class in Italy and this was just perfect. Antoinetta was the best teacher and hostess possible. We learned how to make several Italian dishes just the way her mother taught her. I especially enjoyed that fact that we were learning in her home and then sat down to eat a 5 course Italian dinner with her. The cost of this class is a bargain and the experience was amazing.

    What can I say .. . Antionetta was amazing and we loved meeting her family and the animals on the ranch. We want to come again for sure. Don't miss this great experience you will come away with good memories and a full belly!

    This cooking class was fantastic and better than expected. Anto was so warm and engaging and made us all feel at home. We made fresh pasta, fresh tomato sauce with herbs. We were given a tour of the farm and as we were cooking a number of her neighbors dropped in to say hello. You really got to feel the rhythm of an italian country neighborhood. We had a 4 course meal with lots of wine and even desert wine!!! There were 6 people in the class and everyone got involved in the process. Highly recommend the experience. Glad we did the lunch session since we were there for 5 hours!
