We enjoyed a lovely evening at Rosa's place with great authentic food, a nice glass of wine and a lot of laughter. Would definitely recommend.

Rosa welcomed me into her home with 5 * hospitality. We had wonderful conversation, laughter and delicious food. Cooking class was informative as well as fun. I could not recommend this enough if you are in Bologna and want to do something local and different. Apartment was centrally located and very easy to find. Thank you Rosa for giving me such a lovely memory of Bologna!

Rosa is a wonderful hostess. She is sooo friendly, open, funny. We had a lot of fun cooking, talking, eating and drinking together. The food was delicious! We felt very comfortable and welcome. Thanks!

Rosa was such a gracious host! It was my husband and me and our 10 and 13 year old daughters. She engaged the entire family having us work on all different things and her kitten kept the kids busy during cook time. Would 100% recommend her and the experience of you are visiting Bologna!!!

I did this cooking class with my friend. We can confidently say that it was one of the major highlights whilst travelling northern Italy. Rosa was so warm and welcoming that we really felt at home, and learning to make tiramisu and pasta from a home cook was such an enriching experience. We really enjoyed the authenticity and process of the home-cooking setting; mistakes are part of the fun! Perhaps an equally fulfilling aspect of this activity, if not more, was being able to connect with a Bologna local; hearing Rosa's story and being able to share ours really made this class special and embodied the magic of food bringing people together. I look forward to using these skills in my kitchen! :D
