I have the absolute pleasure to give Arianna the best possible review for coordinating our stay at Agriturismo Il Selvino, hosting a private cooking class, and scheduling a wine and olive oil tasting at the nearby Il Fibbiano winery. As other guests have noted of the cooking class, learning how to make pasta from scratch and eating the strawberry tiramisu... More

Had a wonderful time at the Tuscan Kitchen cooking class in a beautiful farmhouse that Arianna and Friends sponsored. Great instruction and the best veal stew I've ever made or eaten. We learned to make a wonderful strawberry tiramisu, which I prepared for my husband's 65th birthday party and the guests toasted the dessert. I highly recommend the class.

Hard to imagine how a cooking class could be so spectacular. It starts with a scenic drive from Peccioli office to the Farm House kitchen in the Tuscan hills. The organization for tagliatelle, gnocchi, and ravioli with varied sauces was excellent. All the ingredients were fresh from the market.The venue, instruction and ability to participate in the preparation was fun.... More

Arianna and Friends was an amazing company to work with. Arianna answered countless questions for me as we worked together to plan our day tour of Volterra and the surrounding countryside on Vespas. In addition, she provided tips on how to get into and out of Volterra from the other cities we visited in Italy. We booked the car service... More

a Typical Tuscan dinner with Arianna and Friends. We were three generations, me, my son and 21 year old grandson. An excellent hands on experience with 8 other enthusiastic new friends. Charming kitchen with an Italian cook and assistant and Arianna translating. Good wine and camaraderie in both the preparation and dining.

What an amazing treat this was to actually have Arianna drive us to spend the early evening learning to cook in a Tuscan country kitchen with Carla, our chef. I learned some amazing techniques. It was my bucket list come true. The strawberry tiramasu was delizioso and we learned how to make pasta, homemade stuffed ravioli. We drank white wine... More

Arianna and her staff went out of their way to make our reservation and travel to their location as easy as possible. They helped us reserve a car with a good rate and excellent size to fit our bags. On the day of the cooking class, they created the most beautiful environment for us to relax and learn how to... More

Booked two classes, the Tuscan cooking class and Pasta Lab. The location at the farmhouse was just fantastic, the ingredients superior, and I learned a lot of new things about the Italian - and especially the Tuscan - way. It is one of the best decisions I made for my trip. They also offer many different activities to suit every... More
