Hi from Rachele!

My cuisine is rooted in simplicity and the use of fresh products grown directly on our property. The recipes I offer reflect family traditions and typical Campanian and local dishes, such as Sorrentina-style gnocchi, wood-fired Margherita pizza, Nerano spaghetti, montanarine, and tomato and mozzarella Caprese salad.

Spending the day with Rachele and her family was truly one of the highlights during our honeymoon trip to the Amalfi coast! From the moment we arrived, we were treated like family and honestly didn’t want to leave. Rachele’s son, Andrea, was so kind and helped translate along the way. It was also an honor to meet their grandmother, see her cooking techniques and drink limoncello together. We were given a tour of their impressive garden, and saw firsthand where our ingredients came from. Their home is beautiful with a breathtaking view overlooking Sorrento. Not only is Rachele an amazing chef but also one of the sweetest people we met on our entire trip. She even went above and beyond to surprise us with a birthday cake from a local bakery to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We will definitely be back next time we visit and will be recommending it to anyone traveling to Italy. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss this once in a lifetime experience!

This was one of the most AMAZING experiences in all of our Italian trip. We have been traveling for a few weeks experiencing a variety of adventures. THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT - ONE OF THE TOP 3! Rachele and her family were so wonderful. The setting is beyond magical high up in the hills overlooking Sorrento. Their gardens provide the delicious food we prepared. Rachele's son joined us the whole time and interpreted everything for us. I honestly did not want the day to end. When I come back, this experience will be top on my list. I can't wait!!

Rachele Castellano and her son Andrea were absolutely amazing. My sister Daphne and I had the most incredible experience with them and recommend them highly! We visited a local bakery where we were greeted as family and got to taste their delicious homemade wares. And we visited a mozzarella family run business where we got to see how the various forms of mozzarella were created. Then it was off to Rachele’s home where we had a delicious lunch using their home grown tomatoes, homemade olive oil, family made wine, and family made nocino! Their home was located in an idyllic spot on the mountainside with spectacular views and we couldn’t have had a more positive experience. For anyone wanting an authentic and amazing local experience ask for Rachele.

An EXCEPTIONAL experience!! Raquele and her son Andrea were simply amazing. They were welcoming, warm, incredibly hospitable hosts. We visited their local bakery where we were treated to delicious treats and coffee. Then they took us to their local mozzarella factory where we saw how the cheese is made. We were served a delicious lunch of fresh bread, mozzarella, fresh basil and tomatoes from her garden. Dessert was a limone tart. The stunning wine was made by her father and the Nocino made by her mother! We sat outside in the courtyard of their beautiful old stone house up on the hill. They even drove us back to our hotel afterwards. We cannot speak highly enough of our fantastic time with these lovely folks. Highly recommend. Our sincere and heartfelt thanks for our truly marvellous time with them.

We just returned from our stay in Sorrento. The highlight of our trip was the afternoon we spent with Rachele and her family. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. Our lunch was over the top and she went above and beyond to help celebrate a special occasion with my group. I cannot recommend this cooking demo and lunch enough and I cant wait to go back to Sorrento again just to do this experience again! The food was unreal and the photos don’t do her location justice. I wish Rachele and her beautiful family the best of luck ! They will undoubtedly be very successful.
