  • This will be one of the best experiences of my Siena trip. I highly recommend a class here, you get to eat it all! We were all surprised at how delicious all the food was. Lella and her assistant were so wonderful and hope to in the future take another class. We were able to take dessert home. We brought a bottle of wine to split with class, a very wide choice. Feel free to take notes. I look forward to cooking Italian when we return home. Quite a feast, come hungry!
  • Would highly recommend taking a cooking class here! This was hands down the best meal we had during our week long travels in Italy. Lella accommodated us with a new time (there was a double book due to a previous cooking class she had booked prior to but instead of cancelling, she offered to reschedule at a slightly later time), so it was just the two of us and her assistant. The two of them were hospitable and taught us lots, while making the class fun and approachable. They were especially patient when we were learning to roll the pici noodles! We had a four course meal complete with wine, and each course was better than the one before it. You won't regret booking!
