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.
