Private Experience

Private experiences are reserved for you and any guests you have booked for: no other people will be added so that you can enjoy maximum privacy.

Your experience
  • Fried crescentine
  • Tagliatelle
  • Tiramisù with coffee and cocoa

I look forward to hosting you for a unique and authentic experience immersed in the tradition of homemade pasta. Our culinary journey will begin with preparing bruschettas, with seasonal products, and the dough for crescentine and tagliatelle. As the dough rests, we'll focus on crafting the dessert. Next, we'll roll out the dough for the Crescentine and the egg pasta for the Tagliatelle. The Crescentine will be instantly dunked into boiling oil, ready to be savored as an appetizer along with a selection of cured meats and cheeses. Depending on your chosen menu, traditional or vegetarian, the Tagliatelle will be enriched with either a hearty ragù or a vegetable sauce. I invite you to seize this opportunity to live an authentic gastronomic experience, rich in flavors and history.

Paola was amazing! The food was really good. She was willing to answer questions about both food and Italy. We would recommend her to anybody!

Our time with Paola was an absolute highlight of our trip. She is kind and interesting, an excellent teacher whose English is very good. She was charming in every way with a delightful cheery home and a magical kitchen. We feel so very privileged to have been invited into her world and way of life. The food was without question the best we have had in all of Italy and we will be able to create it at home and relive such sweet memories. You may be ruined for any other Tiramisu but most of all you will feel a warmth of hospitality that is true gift! Thank you Paola and Cesarine. We will come back as soon as we can ♥️

Our private pasta making class and dinner with Paola was PERFECTO! She has a lovely and inviting home and personality! Her English was great too and very friendly and easy to communicate with. The entire meal was excellent from start to finish and she did a great job teaching us how to make the pasta. We definitely didn’t walk away hungry! We left with full bellies and big smiles! A great experience from start to finish! BRAVO!
