Wonderful! OMG, what a sweet couple. Great story: early in the day, my wife got sick, so I was going to cancel, but this sweet couple offered to chauffeur us in their car, and if my wife ever felt bad, she could just lie down on their couch. What a nice thing to do! They took care of us as if we were long-lost friends, and we had a terrific time. My favorite part was when we got to help them make home-made pasta! Then she asked us previously if we wanted to help (yes!) and it was so cool to make home made pasta (at the home of two Italians!) we absolutely loved it! Super creative, super fun—highly recommended!
This is a little late. But we had an amazing time with Mateo and Nadia! They were so welcoming and worked so well with our 2 kids, ages 11 and 8. When we arrived, it felt like we were visiting family. The class was so wonderful, my husband ended up buying our daughter a pasta making machine...just like the one we used with the Carretos! Thank you!!
We came to the Carettos hoping to learn to make gnocchi di patate as good as our Nonna Maria used to—and we did! But far more than that: we had our most convivial and delightful evening during our visit to Rome. Matteo and Nadya were fantastic hosts: warmly welcoming and deeply knowledgeable about Italian cooking. We came away, not only with the new culinary skills we had been seeking, but also with wonderful memories of a perfect evening and, we hope, two fine new friends! We cannot recommend the Carettos class too highly; it was a perfectly wonderful experience!
This experience is WAY overpriced. $84 per person to basically sit there and watch this couple cook for you and listen to them bicker with each other and them talking about themselves the entire time. We didn’t even get to make one part of the dessert, Nadia baked the entire thing and just said “we’ll give you the recipe.” Well, it’s been a week and I have received no recipes. The only “cooking” we did was roll some gnocchis. It’s nice to meet Rome locals and share a dinner, but I would not recommend this experience at all. The kitchen barely fit myself, my two travel companions, and the two hosts. I couldn’t imagine trying to fit any other people. It was not that great of an experience and I wish we had done something else that evening.
This was a most amazing experience. We came with our 13 year old grandson who was really the reason we chose this option. It was beyond our expectations. Matheo and Nadia were welcoming and fun, and treated us, but in particular our our grandson in a the way that he could understand and follow the various steps in making pasta from and desert from scratch. He was in 7th heaven. Not to mention to the relaxed, friendly, interesting and fun conversation around dinner table, and their warmth. We are unanimous in recommending Nadia and Matheo with enthusiasm.
