My name is Matteo, I am a Chef and co-founder of Il Mattarello, a workshop with a handmade fresh pasta shop, located in Poppi (AR)
The love and passion for cooking has been handed down to me first by my grandmother Zelinda and then by my mother Donatella.

This passion pushed me to professionalize myself, obtaining the qualification of Chef at the Academy of Taste.
I am a teacher of fresh handmade pasta, and teacher of typical Tuscan cuisine, the land where I was born and to whom I owe everything.

Perfect! Very accessible, hands on, technical pasta making class with a great teacher! Matteo is so generous with his instruction, tips and trips! On the other hand, Matteo is no-nonsense; he does not overcomplicate the process and makes it easy to follow. I tried making pasta various times before at home and with help of youtube videos, but the difference after Matteos class is like day and night. This is amazing. Besides that, it was a real fun experience and Matteo is a great guy to be around! (Who also knows how to serve a very good cup of wine)

The cooking experience with Matteo was perfect from start to finish! His open and friendly personality made us feel welcome straight away. We were offered a Glas of wine to start with and we were able to really make the pasta ourselves. Because of Matteos great english we were able to talk and get to know each other during the experience so there was never a dull moment! We made two types of pasta which gave the experience a perfect variety. We would highly recommend this experience and it was really one of the highlights of our trip! Unforgettable, thank you Matteo

Matteo’s cooking class was our best experience in Tuscany so far! He is a great teacher and walked us through the process in a way that anyone could process no matter how extensive their cooking skills are. We are so happy that we decided to take his class! If you’re looking for a relaxed, authentic Italian experience, then this is the thing to book!

This was the first time we’ve done an Airbnb cooking experience and it is definitely recommended! One of the highlights of our Tuscany trip so far! Matteo is a great teacher, has a great kitchen, is a definite pro at what he does, showed us loads of things (be sure to do the magic knife trick if you make the tagliatelle!) and answered even more questions! The best thing is we now actually know how to make beautiful pasta!! And it tasted amazing!! P.S. Be sure to bring your camera, the photos look so cool making the pasta in Matteo’s family kitchen.

I was in town for my wedding and my family went to Matteo’s cooking class. I am so glad we booked this experience! Matteo was so kind and helpful! He welcomed us to his house and helped us make two different types of pasta. WOW delicious. We so enjoyed eating our cooked meal in his garden. Can’t wait to try recreating at home.

We would highly recommend this experience. Matteo is clearly passionate about pasta and the importance of using local produce. He is also an excellent (and patient!) teacher. We made two types of pasta, which he then cooked for us, served with delicious wine. You can really taste the difference when it is handmade, genuinely the best pasta I’ve ever had. Matteo is also welcoming, warm and friendly, which adds to the experience. We’ll be calling him up again next time we’re in Tuscany!
