We are an inter-racial couple from two corners of the world. She is an actress/English teacher/yoga and belly dance enthusiast. He is a guitarist/sound engineer/wildlife photography enthusiast. We love being together outdoors in Nature, traveling, hiking, museum-hopping, sagra-sampling and whatnot, and being indoors in the kitchen. We believe we were brought together by a mysterious force so that we could share our passion for cooking and culture with others. We cook mostly Mediterr-Asian, our own hybrid of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. We believe that cooking, like travelling, unravels one's imagination and the food we serve is 100% Caretto creativity da il cuore.

My girlfriend and I took the Gnocchi Thursdays cooking class with Nadia and Matteo, and they were absolutely phenomenal. The food was incredible, and they were excellent teachers. The lesson was perfectly hands on, well planned out, and we left having learned so much more about Italian cuisine, Tiramisu, the right way to make pesto, and so much more! They were well prepared, kitchen was well stocked, and the environment was perfect. Every part of the eating experience was excellent, and was without a doubt the best food we had eaten in all of Italy. When they inevitably open up their own restaurant, we want to be their first customers. Beyond how amazing the food was, Nadia and Matteo were great hosts. They were awesome company and were very warm, inviting, friendly, funny, and hospitable. Dinner was a ton of fun and an overall amazing experience. We cannot recommend Nadia and Matteo highly enough!

Nadia and Mateo were wonderful! Our dinner was delicious and Mateo is an extraordinary musician and he played his guitar for us at the end of the evening. They kept the cooking instructions simple. My kids said this was one of their favorite experiences while in Rome.

Nadia and Matteo are amazing cooks and people! As three American college students we do not know too much about Italian cooking so it was exciting for us to see how they worked in the kitchen. They shared cooking tips, their favorite ingredients to buy, and Matteo's family recipe for a red tomato sauce. We home made gnocchi and strawberry tiramisu. We had fun listening to their stories of Rome and asked them plenty of questions about the city and Italian life. Thanks for your patience, advice, and cooking skills Carettos, see you next time we're in Rome!
