We had a fabulous day with Paola and her gracious family. 10 stars!! The class, the food, the view, the caring hosts all combined to make this a highlight of our trip. They went out of their way to make sure each of us had an opportunity to work with the ingredients, to try all the techniques, to answer our questions! We were welcomed into their home and treated like family. They even went so far as to drive us home after we had a difficult taxi experience. The meal was incredible. We highly recommend Chef Paola

Our family had one of the best experiences with Daniela and Gianna today! Daniela first took us to the market where we picked out some fresh ingredients to have for our meal including squash blossoms, onions, and gorgeous cherries. Then we were whisked off to her lovely home where she taught us so many cooking tips and shared recipes. We worked together to make tiramisu and gnocchi and watched Daniela masterfully make focaccia, pesto sauce and tomato and sausage sauce. It was hands down the best meal that we have had in Italy! And, the best part was how at home we felt in Daniela and Gianni’s home. They were both so warm and kind to our family. We had great conversation and I did not want to leave! You must do this if you are in La Spezia. It is an experience you will never forget.

Our family had a wonderful experience with Marina. She shared a number of tips as we were making the recipes. She was great with our 8-year old as he rolled out the pasta dough, and accommodated our preferences in real time. It was great to spend an evening in her warm and welcoming home.

Enza, Enza, Enza!!!! She was amazing. She took me shopping for the freshest ingredients and gave me some history of Siena as we walked. I throughly enjoyed making tiramisu and 2 different pastas, all from scratch! And I had Enza all to myself! She was very encouraging! We had a lot of laughs as we sipped wine while we enjoyed our meal together! I highly recommend Enza!!! Thank you again Enza for helping me get home safely too!! ❤️

Gracious, knowledgeable, and welcoming, Margherita created the perfect experience for myself and two friends. For our class, we made tiramisu, tortellini, and tortelloni together. She skillfully accommodated all of our requests, and made us feel comfortable in her beautiful home. Food turned out incredible and delicious. Would highly recommend!

Excellent food, even better host. Daniela served us at least 5 courses that were some of the most incredible dishes I’ve ever had. Her company, conversation, and cooking are world class.

Luca has a small home, a small dog and a big heart! We learned many things with Luca, about the area, about people and about food and how all these things are connected. Go and visit him with a open heart and mind and you will have the best experience in Riomaggiore
