Shared Experience
Your experience

    This unique experience will allow you to immerse yourself in the culinary culture of Campania and learn the secrets of some traditional recipes. We will introduce you to some typical Campanian dishes and explain their history and secrets.

    We will start with a variety of bruschettas with fresh and genuine ingredients. Then, we will move on to the main course, where you can choose to taste the delicious pasta and beans with mussels or pasta and potatoes with provola cheese. Next is the famous eggplant Parmigiana, one of the most beloved dishes in Italian cuisine. We will conclude the meal with an amazing dessert: the babà.

    This experience will make you feel as if you have been transported directly to the Campania region, even if you are in Lombardy

    If you want a hands on pasta making experience in a traditional Italian home, look no further. We weren't sure what to expect. It was about a 30 min cab ride from Como to the location. When we arrived Simona greeted us with such great energy. She brought us up to the apartment and we met Carolina. The views were amazing and the hospitality was a 10 out of 10. They taught us so much about making pasta old school and we learned a lot about the culture. Carolina cooked the pasta and served it to us and it was so incredibly good. Everything about this experience was a home run. I feel like we have friends for life in Simona and Carolina! This whole experience exceed our expectations. Thank you both for opening your home and being so gracious!

    This was the highlight of our two week trip to Italy. Carolina and Simona are warm and welcoming hosts. We were delighted to see how real Italians live . Carolina is a wonderful and patient teacher, and our meal was delicious.

    Just sensational! This family is so attentive and makes the experience exceptionally special. They make you feel like family from the moment you get there. Once you leave, you may sense you’ve become permanent members of their family. Thank you Carolina and Simone. Great time!
