Marika was very helpful and friendly, tailoring the experience to our tastes and preferences. My partner and I had an amazing time making two types of pasta, gnocchi, risotto and a pannacotta. The recipes were delicious and we will definitely be using them at home.

We had so much fun. Highly recommended. Beautiful villa and learned great tips from Marika. Pasta extravaganza tasted great after a "hard" morning of labor.

Would this be a good fit for my 14 year old daughter and her grandmother when they visit Venice in April? They both love to cook.

Absolutely ! Don't miss this experience.
I will be in Venice from the 20th November to the 9th December. From Monday to Friday I will be attending Italian Language school. I will be available for the classes on a Saturday and Sunday. I am most interested in pasta making classes.
