This family run restaurant and cooking school is a must visit if you are planning to visit Montalcino. Booking ahead is vital ro avoid disappointment. As a family of 6 we attended the cooking class which was outstanding and completely hands on. We learned how to cook a range traditional of Tuscan/Italian dishes using only home grown and local ingredients. The bonus is that we got to eat a delicious meal prepared by ourselves! In a beautiful homely Tuscan environment. The experience exceeded our expectations by a long way..

Alessandro and Emanuela are an amazing team! They welcomed us into their beautiful restaurant (that they renovated themselves) like family. We learned to cook simple yet elegant dishes from scratch such as different types of pasta, pork tenderloin, and even tiramisu! All was accompanied by amazing wine and topped off by an amazing meal (that we all helped cook!) and gorgeous setting in Montalcino.

They and the rest of the staff provided us with a wonderful cooking/learning experience that we wont soon forget!!

Our time at the Locanda Demetra cooking school was the highlight of our trip. Alessandro and his family have such a beautiful spot, and we had heaps of fun preparing our meal in the kitchen and eating it overlooking the Tuscan countryside. I thoroughly recommend this to everyone, it was a great way to spend a morning in an amazing part of the world.

Could not have experienced a better time here. They are a cooking school but also do dinner and lunch, separately. (Book ahead). I came here with my family whilst staying in the area and haven't stopped thinking about it since. Alessandro and his family are truly fantastic hosts, passionate about their craft and lifestyle. Nothing is too much trouble & the food is to die for. Thank you Alessandro, look us up if you are in Australia!

We booked dinner here for my daughters’ birthday and everyone from adults to teenagers see this dinner as one of the highlights of the trip. The food was amazing and the variety was incredible given the intimate setting. Alessandro and Giovanni were great hosts and help make the evening very enjoyable. The best food we had in our two weeks in Italy!
