What you'll do

You will first meet a roman chef in his house and we will mingle with complimentary prosecco and appetizers on his rooftop terrace with an amazing view over the city and the Vatican. Then we will prepare a homemade pasta, made with your own hands under the guidance of the chef. We will enjoy the authentic roman meal like at a dinner party with friends, alongside with some of the best local wines offered by me.

The best way to experience the roman life style as well as roman food and drink culture and the more expendable experience to bring back with you from your trip!
Other things to note
Free to take pictures. Making it your own for friends back home will be the more authentic and fun way to share this experience, anyways!

As I wanted to be a chef in order to travel through different cultures and traditions, after going through the renowned schools Gambero Rosso and Cordon Bleu and working over fifteen years in many countries and restaurants, I settled in my own city and opened my house to travellers.

Must do experience if you’re visiting Rome. We were in Rome for almost a week before doing this experience and I can absolutely say, we made the best pasta we have ever had during this. Francesco is so friendly and welcoming and really made us feel at home. I will do this experience every time I visit Rome.

This class was so much fun. Francesco is not only a great teacher and chef but also a warm and inviting host. Like many other reviewers, the highlight of the class was the people you meet during the experience. And the pasta was delicious! Would highly recommend.

Anyone that is visiting Rome and looking to get an authentic, less touristic experience should book this event! Francesco was a fantastic host and nurtured our pasta making the whole way. The ambiance of the rooftop is fantastic and we got a great view of the sunset. The small group (four of us plus Francesco) made for a more personal experience and we had an amazing time. I would recommend this to anyone and would certainly do it again!

The cooking class with Francisco was excellent. We started off with appetizers and a glass of wine on the rooftop terrace while enjoying the sights of Rome. Then we went downstairs and began with making pasta. It became obvious very quickly that Francisco was an excellent chef. After we made the pasta we set it aside to rest and began preparing the rest of the meal. We made everything from scratch with organic, quality ingredients. We made a tomato based spaghetti sauce and also stuffed ravioli with eggplant and truffles. I have never enjoyed an Italian meal more and we actually made it ourselves (with a lot of guidance from Franscesco). We finished with some outstanding local ice cream for dessert. A great time with good company and excellent food, highly recommend!

This was a fun experience with a great location. If you want to learn how to make fresh pasta while over looking the skyline of Rome and enjoying a glass of wine, this is the experience for you
