Monica was our instructor and absolutely amazing! The location was a super unique and the class was super educational! We made so much food and left full and happy! Lots of hands on learning not just watching the chef. Monica made the great experience even better! Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone!

Best part of Rome

The class was wonderful. First we went to the markets and shops to get vegetables , meat and cheese. Then we went back to a beautiful piazza that had a professional kitchen. We made 3 kinds of pasta, sauce. Soltimboca and tiramasu and we ate all of it
Awesome experience

This was the height of our 4 days in Rome Monica the chef and her assistant were wonderful! So warm and friendly. First we shopped, then we cooked and then we ate what we cooked- do not eat breakfast before this!!!
So much fun!

Had an amazing time shopping in the market, learning cooking techniques, making homemade pasta, and enjoying all 4 dishes we created in the beautiful garden. Thank you Marco and Nicoleta for a great experience!

This class was so much fun for everyone their weather you could cook or not. Nicoletta was great she and her helper went over everything . Were always by if you needed help or just didn't want to do it. I learned so much about making pasta and cooking in general. I had the best time in this class and the food we made was great much better then I make at home. I would serously recomend to do this class with her if you are in Rome. It was worth the time.
Don’t bother

When we signed up for the class it said a maximum of eight and we had 12 people in our class. It was so crowded and so many people that half the time we did not know what they were doing or how to do it You spend a lot of time standing around and really did not get to cook anything. There was not enough room at the Counter for everyone. I felt like they were just trying to maximize their profits and didn’t care at all about the quality of the class. Half the time we could not hear or see what they were doing and the people running it did not seem to care. I felt like it was all about making the most money possible they cramming us all in there. We had taken the same class two years earlier and it was outstanding. This time it was absolutely the worst and a waste of a day in room! I would never recommend this particular class to anyone. I’m quite sure 2/3 of the class was extremely unhappy with the entire experience. we spent most of her time standing around with nothing to do and even when we sat down to dinner they only had 11 places set so when poor person had to wait while they added an additional setting for them. I will say it again find a better class that cares about the experience not just making money!
Cooking lesson in Rome!

Great experience! Lots of fun, great chefs, great food. One of the best parts of our trip! Worth every minute of it.
An excellent experience

What a fantastic way to experience Rome. Fortunately, yesterday, due to who knows what, we were a group of 3 only. Nicoleta and Roy taught us incredibly well and the food we produced together was of an exceptionally high stand. The wines were also brilliant. I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone. I will certain sign up for another experience with Fabio's chefs on a return trip to Rome. I will be trying my hand at some of these dishes in a couple of days and hope they will be of the same standard. Thanks again to Nicoleta and Roy.
