Rosella and Giuseppe kindly welcomed us into their home and explained everything very thoroughly. The pasta class was fantastic and the food was extra delicious. This is definitely an experience we will remember forever and would definitely recommend for anyone looking to learn a skill and meet some nice people.

Excellent experience learning how to create proper Italian pasta. It was great fun using the pasta machine and creating the ravioli. English speaking assistant was also very helpful. I would of liked to have seen how the different sauces for the pasta were made. Also having a print out of the recipies to take with us would have been good also.

Dear Rossella, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your warm hospitality during our visit to your delightful home. our time spent with you was truly the highlight of our trip, creating memories that would forever be etched in our hearts. The experience of learning to make authentic Italian pasta from you was both enriching and truly enjoyable. We had such a fantastic time discovering the secrets behind the wonderful flavors and textures, as well as the techniques to get them just right. And as for the tiramisu, it was simply great! We are quite excited to amaze our friends back home with our newly acquired culinary skills. Meeting you all, Rosella, fifi, guissepe & papa roberto brought so much joy and warmth to our journey. Your generosity, welcoming nature, and smile of yours truly made us feel at home. We feel so fortunate to have met people as charming and friendly as you all are. We cannot thank you enough for all the unforgettable experiences and lessons. We hope to meet you again soon, and until then, you will always hold a special place in our thoughts and our hearts. With deepest gratitude, Lujain 💕

We really loved learning how to cook Sicilian dishes with Rossella. She was an excellent host and cook. It was alot of Fun. We learned how to make eggplant parmesan, mushroom pasta and tiramusu. These were all family recipes and so delicious. She hosted this cooking and eatting class in her beautiful home and it was served with yummy red wine. She gave us beautiful magnet gifts as a memory of that day. The magnets had an interesting story. They are on display on my refrigerator here in Austin TX USA. It was really nice that her husband picked us up and returned us to the cruise port that day.
