What you'll do

I live in a wonderful penthouse with a breathtaking view from the kitchen and the terrace over the Roman Forum, Basilica of Maxentius, Campidoglio. I will teach how to make traditional handmade pasta in my kitchen. We will prepare one kind of Italian homemade pasta (fettuccine, spaghetti alla chitarra or maltagliati), made with your own hands under my guidance. We will prepare also one kind of Italian traditional sauce (amatriciana, gricia, ragù or butter and sage). We will enjoy together a prosecco and appetizers and then the homemade pasta in the spacious kitchen or on the attached terrace. I will provide my guests with recipes for the homemade pasta and sauces prepared together. I will be happy to enjoy a pleasant evening with my guests and leave a wonderful memory of Rome.

Really a great experience. Our kids loved it. Capped off a great 10 day trip to Italy with a special evening. And nicely accommodated special requests. Thank you!

As if we were in Rome for visiting our friends. My partner and I got along great with Alberto and Marialetizia right from the beginning. From the food to the view on the terrace - it was wonderful. And eating: that's how I imagine Italian cuisine to be. Not only eaten well, but also learned how to prepare the original pasta. We can simply recommend the experience to others. Thanks for everything and who knows, maybe see you soon Cristian & Mara

Alberto and Marialetizia were beyond gracious and fun people to lead this experience. It was truly a memorable time and they really opened the warmth of their home to my mom and I. The pasta was the best I’ve had in my entire life and I will talk about it forever

Our first-ever Airbnb experience was absolutely perfect! We were welcomed into their home and shown a glorious sunset overlooking the Colosseo and surrounding area. We enjoyed a glass of prossecco and appetizers while getting to know our hosts and 2 other guests before we made pasta. Our 10 year old daughter was made to feel welcome and they served her popcorn and soft drinks. They helped her make the pasta dough and allowed her to be just as involved with making the pasta in the machine and stirring the ragu. We enjoyed our hosts and felt like VIP guests in their beautiful home. We were able to choose which type of noodle to make and they shared their family recipe for ragu sauce. We enjoyed red wine with the meal and espresso after the meal. There was always water and non-alcoholic choices available. Communication with the hosts was easy to make arrangements beforehand regarding location and allergies. A real treat for me was getting my own gluten free flour mix and gluten free appetizers. Despite the pasta dough being very different, they were very patient and helped me feel welcome and made sure I received just as great of a meal as everyone else. Pasta was served with local Parmesan and olive oil which added to the perfect meal. We could not recommend this experience enough.
