I'm chef and pasta maker. My parents worked in their "pasta shop" for 40 years making pasta with passion. Five years ago, I opened my own pasta shop and I was very surprised to have been named among "the best 10 Pastificio in Rome".
I have also been reviewed on the prestigious " Il Gambero Rosso" guide from 2017.
I've been inspired by the "magical" pasta made by my grandmother when I was a child and I'm so proud to teach how to make this special pasta to everyone. Transmit all the love and passion of my family, today, represents my dream.

We didn’t expect an authentic pasta making class. This was such a wonderful surprise the host is genuine and has a deep history with pasta making. We had a wonderful time and learned how to make pasta without a machine ! Also San Lorenzo is an interesting location to get out of the city and enjoy a different part of Rome. Highly recommend this experience

Honestly can not recommend this experience enough! Emanuele was great from start to finish, so attentitive even down to asking if the temperature was okay and if we wanted water. We learnt so much and had fun throughout. Feeling safe throughout COVID with hand sanitiser etc. Learning about the different grains and how to make professional pasta, skills we will take away and use throughout life. Will be suggesting this experience to friends and strangers alike, when in Rome make sure you come to Emanuele’s pasta lab!!

This pasta making experience with Emanuele was one of the best things we have done here in Rome! The experience itself is excellent value for money and Emanuele is clearly an expert in his field. We learned a lot about pasta making, how to make different types of pasta and the different techniques used. I’d also like to say thank you Emanuele for customising the experience to cater for my veganism. I really appreciated that!
