"Giovedì gnocchi, venerdì pesce e sabato trippa..."

Or so the Roman saying goes. Gnocchi might be traditionally eaten every Thursday but hey, we teach you how to make them every day of the week (besides no one really follows that rule anymore)!

Learn the tips to get the right consistency and mouthfeel that you can then recreate in the comfort of your home. How do you make those signature grooves on gnocchi? How do you best conserve them? What is the ratio between potato and flour? What kind of potatoes? Egg, or no egg?

The class will include assembling a dessert of your choice and then the best part? Dining together with a good bottle of wine!


You may select one of these other sauces in advance. Do note that we usually make only 1 type for each class:

1) al gorgonzola piccante e noci - Italian sharp blue cheese and walnuts
2) al crema di peperoni e ricotta - bell pepper and ricotta sauce
3) al pesto genovese - Green pesto recipe from Genova (contains pine nuts)
4) alla sorrentina - tomato sauce with fresh basil and melted mozzarella, topped with pecorino (sheep milk cheese)
5) con burro e salvia - sage and butter sauce
6) con crema di zucchine - zucchini and mint sauce
7) al ragu - minced meat and tomato sauce
8) con salsiccia, funghi e pomodori - with Italian sausage, mushroom and tomatoes
9) piselli, guanciale e pecorino - pea and pecorino cheese sauce with pork cheek
10) con gamberi e crema di zucchine - shrimps and zucchini cream
11) con ricotta e noci - ricotta and walnut pesto

For dessert, please select one of the following options:
1) Tiramisù Classico - pasteurized eggs, coffee and mascarpone (optional: Marsala)
2) Limonisù - our version of lemon tiramisù, made with a lemon-mascarpone cream (optional: homemade limoncello)
3) Dolce Tricolore - eggless; base of crushed amaretti, sweetened ricotta, homemade seasonal fruit compote (optional: pistachio liquor)
4) Torta "Black Magic" - olive oil, mascarpone and dark chocolate cake. Bakes itself up into 3 delightful layers with a creamy and mousse-like center!
5) Bicchierino di Stelle - a layered dessert comprising crushed Pan di Stelle (hazelnut cocoa cookies), milk and hazelnut liquer (optional), homemade Nutella, mascarpone and fresh cream, cocoa
6) Gioia di Chiaia - lemon and extra-virgin olive oil cake, tart, sweet, dense and moist (optional: limoncello)
7) Torta Caprese al Limone - almond flour and lemon cake made with or without white chocolate (your choice!)
8) Crostata di castagne e nocciole ripieno di ricotta - Pastry tart made with chestnut and hazelnut flours with ricotta filling, baked

Please let us know of any dietary specifications beforehand. We do our best to create a memorable, engaging and fun experience for our guests!

Nadia and Matteo were very knowledgable, incredibly hospitable, and lots of fun.




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!
