$79.51 per guest


Food is an alternative and delicious way to learn about a country’s culture and history, especially Italy’s. Join us at our home for a fun-filled cooking lesson that will teach you how to expertly prepare pasta from scratch and the authentic recipe for Italy’s favorite dessert, tiramisù. Other dessert options are also available.
You’ll also hear about the origins of each dish and personal tips and tricks to cooking authentic Italian cuisine. Your hard work will be rewarded when you sit down to your very own home-cooked meal with a good bottle of wine. Buon appetito!

The recipes you prepare in class will be sent to you via email, so you can try them on your own back home.

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!!



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!



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.
