    We had a great time making and eating pasta dishes with Silvia. We made 3 different dishes, learning the techniques of each. The conversation was great, along with the food and wine. We strongly recommend!

    Amazing experience in her home! We made 3 homemade pastas while drinking Prosecco! It was such a fun time and totally authentic. We ate the pasta we made! Lovely conversation and such an awesome atmosphere!
    Class cancellation at last minute

    Unfortunately, our class was canceled. We were about to arrive for our private class with our family, and received a call about it being delayed. An hour later, it was canceled. We were really looking forward to this to end our trip and we’re extremely disappointed.
    Response from Host, Nov 2023
    Dear Mike, We are very sorry for this inconvenience. Your host was stuck in traffic due to a bridge that suddenly fell. Unfortunately, there are situations beyond our control, which is why we have issued a full refund for you. We hope we'll have the chance to welcome you in the future! Best regards,
    Best dinner in Lucca!

    We truly made three different pasta dishes from scratch but really enjoyed sitting down and eating with our wonderful host and her husband! What a special night.

    This was a fantastic experience. Assunta and her family were just delightful. We learned so much, the kids were engaged throughout, and the dinner was fabulous. I cannot say enough positive things about this experience. Definitely worth doing!!!
    Best day we had in Lucca

    Amazing experience in the heart of Lucca, our host Maria is a very friendly and skilled mama who together with her friend made us feel welcome at once. With her gentle style of tutoring we all together made three wonderful, classic pasta dishes while enjoying refreshments, great coversation and a stunning view. Sharing the meal with and getting to know the family was a very nice way to round off. 10/10, we feel inspired and confident about trying our hand at this back home!
    A wonderful, delicious experience

    Pasta making with our host Antonietta was amazing. She and her husband were gracious hosts with a lovely home. She made the evening so enjoyable- we are looking forward to making pasta again when we return home.

    So nice to see Sylvie’s home and learn from her. She was patient, informed, and fun. We will definitely try to make pasta when we return home.
    Amazing pasta class and day!

    Sylvia was amazing. Our family had such a special day learning about pasta, Italian traditions and fabulous recipes! We made delicious food!!!!! Thank you. Will definitely do again when we return to Lucca
    Grazie Sylvia!!!

    Our family had a great time cooking w Sylvia. We made nudie (sp?), gnocchi, and tagliatelle and they were all yummy. We’re inspired to make homemade pasta when we get back home. Really great to spend time in a local’s home and talk with them.
    Amazing night with new friends!

    Atonetta and PIedro were the most genuine and welcoming couple we had the pleasure of meeting. Piedro picked us up from our apartment and took us back to their beautiful farmhouse where we made fresh pasta using eggs from their chickens! The bruschetta was delicious and we had an aperitivo while the sauce was cooking. We shared stories with the help of a neighbor who was in college learning languages as the translator and we felt like old friends by the time dinner was over. An incredible experience that will immerse you in the culture and it was a tour that couldn't be topped for our week in Tuscany! I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting to go 'off the beaten path' and get a great Italian experience.
