What you'll do

This is not your typical Grandma's Secret sauce. What do you get when an American and a Brazilian become neighbors in Rome?

You get a wild and fun filled cooking class with not only Italian cuisine but world cuisine and cocktails. This is food with a flair. It is fun and funny with Live music, dad jokes and exotic drinks.

We will teach you how to make "pasta fatta in casa" hand made pasta, we will make, cook and Eat all together as well as discover traditional cocktails.

We keep it simple, like the ancient Romans. Traditional recipes with a twist, easy to prepare and tasty for all. So come on in, sit up to the table and join us, as we make new friends from all around the world, have a laugh and sing over food and drinks. Everyone is welcome.

Once you book the experience you will receive a message with the list of the ingredients and tools you need including dietary substites.
Group size around 6 people.

This Experience is great for team-building, private groups looking to gather virtually for special occasions! Whether you're celebrating with family, friends or coworkers, we look forward to hosting your pasta experience get-together cooking, drinking and singing! Book a private experience for your group. If you don't find the date just contact us.

Mike and Sonia were absolutely fantastic!! I organised a lockdown date night for my girlfriend and I and we both absolutely loved it!! The cocktails were fantastic, Mike's knowledge of Italian history was both fascinating and impressive, the food was absolutely delicious too! We are both fairly amateur cooks, and when we struggled a bit with things/took a little longer than usual, Mike and Sonia were so kind and helpful (even staying online later than they needed to!), the music and jokes were amazing too. Cannot recommend this highly enough for a lockdown night in!

I purchased this Airbnb experience for my sister and her husband for my sister’s 30th birthday. They absolutely LOVED it! They said it was full of fun, learning, and delicious food!! Here is a direct review from my sister: “Mike and Sonia were equal parts knowledgeable and entertaining! We made the most delicious pasta and sauce from scratch while learning Roman history and listening to live tunes by mike. This was an fun and delicious date night and look forward to learning more from them in the future. Cheers!”

My boyfriend and I wanted to do something fun for Valentine’s Day and with us being pretty COVID conscious we wanted to try out a virtual experience. My mom had gotten us a gift card to pick out our own and what better day to give it a go! Mike and Sonia’s class seemed to be a simple recipe which was good since we are both amateur cooks. We had an amazing time learning about Italian culture all while making pasta and sauce from scratch! We hope to take another one of their classes again soon. They even stretched it out to an additional 30 minutes because we were having such a nice time singing and chatting! We hope to be able to take another one of their experiences again soon!!

EVERYONE MUST TAKE THIS FOOD TOUR!! It was fantastic from start to finish. Sonia was a great chef and Mike was a captivating storyteller and musician. They made sure I was on the right track (even though I was making a mess) and kept us entertained with Roman history. The whole night was perfect and the food was delicious. The people were great, the music was fun, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to take this tour!!
