Patrizia lives near the Novoli zone. It is 10 minutes from the center by bus. N. 22 bus stop at Piazza Duomo or the main railway station.
It is also very close to the airport (about 5 minutes) by taxi and will likely cost about 9 euro. It's a very lively neighbourhood full of shops and supermarkets.
Absolutely fantastic brilliant night. She was a lovely host.
Can't recommend this experience enough. Patrizia was so engaging, fun and welcoming; as soon as I arrived I felt like family! The process of making pasta is so precise and she was a very patient teacher - I learned a lot about the reasons behind the techniques, different kinds of flour, etc. We made our own lemon-seasoned ravioli and tagliatelle and then Patrizia treated us to several delicious authentic Sicilian dishes like vegetable couscous and gelato made with figs from her family's tree in Sicily. Loved getting to sit with Patrizia and hear her stories! She also graciously called a cab for me at the end of the night, which was so helpful as I was unfamiliar with the neighborhood. If you're seeking authentic connection and a warm, home-cooked meal during your travels (especially if you're traveling on your own), you will love this! One of my favorite experiences of my two weeks in Italy.
It is difficult to describe this experience in words, by nature it is an experience and words don't always convey the realness of the atmosphere. This was truly a highlight of my time in Italy. As it turned out we were the only couple that booked for the night, so we had a one on one experience with Patrizia. From the booking process thru the tiramisu Patrizia treated us like family. She is engaging, energetic, full of joy and stories about Italy, her family, etc. Patrizia is a wonderful host, a great teacher and most of all an amazing person. Her recipes are easy to follow, fun to prepare and most of all absolutely delicious. If you are considering booking with Patrizia, you will not be sorry. This was one of them best, most authentic experiences I had during my time in Italy. Patrizia is simply the best! Thank you Patrizia for sharing your home, your talents and most of all you!
Patrizia was amazing! We requested to make pizza, pasta and tiramisu. We didn't realise how big of an ask this was for Pats, but she was more than happy to give us the full experience. She taught us how to make everything we requested and she even provided prosecco and red wine for us. The food was beautiful and the night was a great experience that we won't forget.
What an amazing experience! Patrizia welcomed us into her home as though we were old friends and we had a wonderful evening with her. The food was out of this world and the ravioli and taglitelli lesson was fantastic. Patrizia certainly went above and beyond to give us an authentic italian dining experience. Thanks Patrizia you are a truly amazing host and person! We entered as friends and left feeling like family. We can't wait to come back.
