We would have happily paid the price for this lunch and transportation to the restaurant ( 124 euro for two) without the four hours of excellent culinary education and entertainment by a talented and witty chef. Two of our 12 person class professional chefs. They praised the food is outstanding and risotto as the best ever. We agree. This class... More

I can not say enough good things about our experience in Moreno's cooking class. The food was outstanding! Our teacher was a great host! Our classmates were fun to be with! We learned a lot of cooking tips that I look forward to trying at home. Moreno really loves what he does and enjoys teaching others. There was so much... More

The two of us participated in a cookery class of 10 in April 2017. For the price we got not only a day's course, we were picked up and returned by taxi (just as well, there was unlimited wine on offer). It's on a hilltop above Perledo, nearest port Varenna. Moreno is a serious chef with a continuous focus on... More

The food was very good, but the experience was so much more. If you have a free afternoon I recomend this activity, f you don't then you... More

We loved every minute of our day at Il Caminetto. Moreno was a gracious host and it was great fun to watch him cook. The food and wine were excellent, and we got to help prepare part of the meal. He was full of stories about the history and culture of the area.

I managed to convince my whole family to go to this cooking class, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We have two coeliac teenage children and they were extremely well catered for. The class was informative and funny with just the right amount of hands on and easy instructions (well he made them look easy)! The food was absolutely fantastic... More

We were picked up promptly in Varenna and whisked away to the restaurant where we arrived about 10:30. We were greeted warmly by the entire family and then...to business. We watched as chef Moreno prepared pasta and a tomato sauce as well as a... More

The most amazing meal we had during our stay in Varenna. I also cannot say enough about how wonderful and hospitable Moreno and his family were. You can tell he has a deep passion for food and for teaching. Absolutely would not miss this amazing opportunity!
