There were six of us and Giacomo responded to all the guests in a very individual and courteous manner. He has a very deep knowledge about the production of pasta and shared it with us in an exciting and very personal way. Due to the current Covid-19 situation it is not easy for Airbnb to make discoveries of this kind. He has always been careful to follow hygiene regulations and still created a relaxed and positive atmosphere. We have laughed a lot, met great people and learned how to make delicious pasta. At the end of the course Giacomo cooked us the three types of pasta with delicious sauces and we ate them together in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We definitely recommend this discovery to everyone and had a great time!

This is such a unique pasta-making experience. It feels entirely personal, friendly and authentic - and that's because it is! Our host was so wonderful and we learned techniques that are not as typical and putting pasta through a machine - instead we made these with love and care, and it tasted delicious!!
