I absolutely loved the time we got to spend cooking with Roberta in her home! She was incredibly kind, accommodating, and thoughtful and made the experience feel as if we were friends she welcomed into her home. She’s a wonderful person and I truly enjoyed the time we spent learning from her and swapping stories and conversation. The food and wine were delicious and I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Como! As an added bonus, she also shared the recipes from our class after we arrived home so we could try them on our own. Thanks again for everything, Roberta! :)

It was a really fun experience for our family! It was the first time we made homemade pasta! She was engaging and fun to work with in the kitchen!

Our family had a wonderful time making fresh pasta with Roberta in her home. We had a private group experience with our family of 6 which made it very special. She was very warm and knowledgeable and helped us learn the tips and tricks to making a fun, delicious and simple Italian meal. It was a great evening and is one of the wonderful memories of our time in Como.

Roberta was great and the whole experience was fun and we learned some new recipes and tricks to make pasta at home. We had a lovely lunch and a wonderful time with Roberta in her home. I would recommend this experience while in Lake Como!

I could not recommend Roberta & the pasta making class more… it was amazing!! From start to finish Roberta made me feel so welcome in her home & was absolutely fantastic at sharing her pasta making techniques with me. The pasta was delicious & would definitely recommend to anyone interested. 10/10 from me :)

"I love to cook! But I really love it. The passion was born to me as a child, when I watched my grandmother prepare tasty treats for Sunday lunch. My grandmother was from Puglia but she cooked all kinds of traditional Italian dishes very well. Growing up I cooked for the my family and for many friends. I have prepared banquets and lunches for charitable events and communions, weddings and aperitifs for friends."
