$68.18 per guest


As you all know, a typical Italian dish you find in a traditional Italian kitchen is pasta.
Above all, home made pasta, in all its various forms - fettuccine, ravioli, gnocchi, lasagna, cannelloni, orecchiette, strozzapreti, fusilli, cavatelli, pici - is true to the authentic Italian cuisine!
This cooking class in Rome will teach you the right cooking techniques to make your own Italian home made pasta. After our pasta making class, you will definitely be able to surprise your friends with new skills and delicious meals!

As a guest, you will prepare your meal guided by my help, after which we will experience our “masterpieces” together during a lovely, friendly dinner. Our pasta making class is all about having a good time, while learning about food and dining in Rome, and relaxing over a friendly meal with good conversation!

It is possible to customize the lesson asking me some changes.

Its also possible having a private class:
- 100 euro per person plus Bonappetour fee
- 80 euro per every kid under 10
- free kids under 5

It is also possible to plan a classic three course menu, with a first course, a main course (meat-based) and a dessert, for the same price or preparing two pastas and a dessert.

When eating in Rome, a dinner is not complete without a bottle of wine! As such, a simple wine will be served during the dinner. For special wines, it is possible to discuss it in advance.

Morning session starts at 10 am to have lunch at 1 pm
Evening session starts at 5 pm to have dinner at 8 pm

You will enjoy this meal in Rome in a 50 meter square cosy room, which combines the kitchen, the living room and dining room all at once. Shaped as such, the place, allows my guests to interact easily.

My place is very close to Vatican City and Prati quarter (50 meters from metro A, Cornelia stop). So it's also very easy to reach!
The quarter is very commercial and full of life - perfect to go shopping or have a coffee before our event :)

We really enjoyed our big family cooking class and dinner at Francesca's. She was so flexible and willing to adjust the menu and timing to suit our wishes. We learnt invaluable tips and tricks for the recipes we cooked and the wine and dessert that were also served were fabulous. Thank you for accommodating such a big group of us, Francesca. We learnt a lot and enjoyed a great meal with you! Our absent dinner guest also greatly appreciated the meals you sent home!



from Edmonton

We had such a great time with Francesca, she was very animated and fun to be around. We had the 3 course dinner and made our own pasta with meat sauce, the pork main and a tiramisu, then we learned an arriabata sauce also. She explained everything very thoroughly and we were involved in each step. What a great experience.
