I had a pasta making class last time when I was visiting Rome for a business trip. It was super fun and I learnt a lot about Roman home cooking. So I thought I’d do it again with my husband and parents. I booked last minute so I couldn’t get in the class I took last time and this one is not as good. My parents are visiting Rome from China and They wanted to learn how to make pasta so they can make it at home when they return. It didn’t happen because they didn’t teach you make the sauce at all. I was disappointed. The pasta tasted good but the rest of the course are really average - it’s a meal I wouldn’t voluntarily eat if it didn’t come with the cooking class. It’s more just for fun date nights that kind of thing. Not for people who are seriously interested in local food and home cooking
Excellent change of pace from other tours. Cooking class was perfect in level of difficulty and length of course about an hour. It was cool how they showed you how to cut the pasta and unfirl it into noodles. The best part is you get to eat your pasta and pair it with the sauce of your choice. The class is also a great value when you consider it includes a full dinner. We started with bruchetta, then had our pasta then the second course of saltimbocca and meatballs. We were stuffed! They ended the meal with a nice tirmisu and of course a glass of wine was included from the beginning. I would highly recommend this class as you gain a cooking class and dinner at the same time.
This was also excellent - Loved the teacher. She was so informative and had everyone engaged in the activity. We thoroughly enjoyed. Our pasta was great and salad was awesome. The meal they gave after was just ok. I don't like veal so I would not eat it. Wish they asked what food people like. (dietary issues) Give a vegetarian option.
My husband really wanted to take a cooking class in Italy. While in Rome, I looked up on Trip Advisor a pasta making experience and decided on this class. He and my 14 year old son participated in this experience as thank goodness that they did! They both had a wonderful time, their instructor was very patient, articulate, kind and made cooking fun. My husband and son know have a memory of Italy which is priceless. They have already made Pasta at home!
