Lara and her friends and family were such a delight. We enjoyed cooking together, the delightful selection of foods, the beautiful Tuscan views and her family and dog, Black. What a joyful family and experience.

Lara and her family were absolutely amazing! We weren’t able to get transportation from San Gimignao and her husband brought us to and from our dinner. They made a delicious dinner for us and were so welcoming and knowledgable of local culture and cuisine. We learned much about such a beautiful part of Italy and they even gave us more recommendations as we continue our journey to Bologna. When we make our future trips to Tuscany we plan to stop here again. Thank you so much for the best dinner!

Lara and her family were the perfect for the 6 of us to learn how to make pasta and have a wonderful dinner. This was so personal and they were a wonderful family! We couldn't have asked for anything better.

We visited Lara and her family on a Sunday morning at 10am. We were welcomed very warmly. Besides Lara, her husband, children and neighbors were there. It was a great experience, we had a lot of fun and felt very comfortable at all times and Lara and her family were the perfect hosts. The homemade pasta was delicious very delicious and we were able to learn many new things. We would come back anytime and recommend this experience to anyone.
