We had a wonderful time at this cooking class. There were about 16 people in the lesson. From 4 until about 730pm we cooked, then we sat down to dinner and wrapped up around 9pm. The time flew by. We made a fantastic baked pecorino dish as a starter. Followed by pasta with garlic and tomato sauce that was delicious.... More

We adored this experience. Lella is clearly passionate about her food and teaching. The food we prepare with her expert guidance was restaurant quality, but that much bett because we had made it partly ourselves.

We immediately felt comfortable and enjoyed our cooking experience. Ella's story of building a successful business from her passion is a great example for our daughter. The recipes were well presented and we had a lot of hands on experience. Don't miss this experience -- you have to eat dinner, might as well learn something.

One thing that my sister and I knew we wanted to do in Tuscany was take a cooking class. Our hotel recommended Lella's cooking school to us and helped us schedule the class. When we arrived in the morning it turned out that the other people who had signed up for the class didn't show, so my sister and I... More

I really didn't know what to expect, but I was made welcome the minute I walked through the door. I was given the recipes of everything we made from the starter to the desert. Everything was explained in detail how to make each dish. Everyone in the group had a go to make something and we all made fresh pasta.... More

What a wonderful way to enjoy Siena cuisine! Lella provided a friendly, engaging and informative teaching space! Her attention to detail and quality of food was exceptional. Lellas teaching experience spans over 20 years! If I had more time here I would definitely have another experience with her!!

An amazing and incredibly memorable experience! After cooking, you end the class with a delicious 4-course meal that you helped prepare. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Siena.

Cooking with Lella was like learning to cook from an aunt. We felt very much at ease and relaxed sitting around the giant island in her kitchen, which, though professional and well-equipped, felt like it belonged in a real home. She had the right amount of staff - one to translate, herself to show main actions of meal preparation, and... More

My husband and I both love to cook so getting instruction from Lella was not only educational but FUN! She and her staff are very professional and are seriously committed to their craft. The school itself is quite large, immaculately clean, and very well appointed with every kitchen utensil you could think of. We arrived at 4:00 p.m. and got... More

My friends and I signed up for 5 lessons with Lella while we were studying abroad in Siena. She is an amazing cook and super fun to learn from! She prepares a different menu every time and every single one of the dishes is amazing! I'm excited to go home and roll pasta from scratch for my family!
