Pasta cooking class
Feb. 2020 • Solo
Marco was amazing, part chef part tour guide. Walking up to the market he was informing us of the local ruins and buildings. We had a quick walk through the market, as it was busy he went and got all the vegetables the Roman way (cutting the line). Once back at the kitchen he was very patient making sure we all made the pasta dough perfectly with enough violence. We all had a good chat while he prepared the other sauces. The pasta was pretty alright, but the sauces were amazing!!!

The entire activity was great and would do again if I ever came back to Rome.
Thank you Marco, from the Australian

Marco was the best thing we experienced in Rome
Marco did an amazing job catering for us with his rich knowledge of Italian cuisine as well as a passion to prepare the best dishes his country has to offer. This was easily the best thing we did during our three days in rome. The wine selected was delicious and we didn't want to leave.

Marco was such a great host, guide, chef, and overall an amazing person to talk to. He was able to answer any questions we had about Italy in general while keeping it fun relevant and informative. I did this class with just a group of three people and it turned out great because we were engaged in very personal conversations and got plenty of one on one food help from Marco. This class—especially with Marco—does what food is supposed to do: bring people together.

Incredible Experience
Dec. 2019
Marco was the instructor for the class I took and I can honestly say that I couldn't imagine a way to make the experience more enjoyable. The group met at 11:30 and Marco immediately began introducing himself person by person as we waited for everyone to arrive. He was very friendly and instantly put everyone at ease. We walked over to a local market and bought the ingredients for the dishes - as we walked he gave us historical information about the places we walked through which was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Through the entire class which in our case lasted almost 6 hours, he was friendly, patient and kept the whole group laughing. Our class was comprised of a wide range of people (a couple kids and their parents, some students studying abroad, and 5-6 late 20's to early 30's), everyone had a great time. The pasta turned out amazing and the wine flowed the whole time (with soft drinks for the kids). This was a highlight of my trip and I'm so glad I chose to sign up. Well worth the time and financial investment. Ciao Marco!

Unbeatable experience, well worth the money and Marco is a legend
Nov. 2019
Marco's experience and knowledge of Italian cuisine and its reverence for ingredients is something which makes this cooking class exceptional. Although I was the only student in the class on that day, Marco's humour, warmth and conversation made for a really exciting and fun class. Moreover, Marco's passion for his country is evident and I left the class knowing more about Rome and pasta than I could have hoped for. An experience that is well worth the money and with its rewards in delicious pasta dishes and wine.

Kitchen of mama- pasta cooking class
Sep. 2019 • Friends
What a wonderful way to complete our visit to Rome . Our chef Marco led us to a market for us to wander in whilst the cooking ingredients were bought. Then the fun began as we made our pasta . The conversation and wine flowed , as Marco told us tips about Italian cooking . Wow the pasta was delicious- never tasted better.
Highly recommended- thanks Marco !

A pasta experience
Sep. 2019 • Friends
A fantastic afternoon with Marco, laughing and learning the art of pasta. After a trip to the local market, where you can buy your own fresh produce or a cheap coffee, we returned to make pumpkin ravioli with butter-sage sauce and Bolognese. Marco was energetic and fun, and most importantly, a great host who kept the wine flowing. A brilliant end to our trip to Rome, thank you 😁

Fantastic activity
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Let me start off by saying I usually don't leave review but this was so amazing I couldn't just leave it.
We booked the class in the last minute and we are so happy we did.
We got to the place and were welcomed by the staff then our guide arrived and we found we were the only ones in the class. The guide took great care of us, explained everything, added more information, shared stories with us and was a great conversation. In the class itself we went to the market and bought fresh ingredients, on the walk to ad from we received a lot of information about the history and politics of Rome which was great. After coming back from the market we drank wine, started learning and cooking which was fantastic and extremely delicious. EXTREMELY RECOMMAND THIS CLASS.
