Chef Andrea and his wife Erica make an excellent team able to provide a culturally enriching, hands on experience in the kitchen and in the Trastevere neighbourhood. Our group contained novices and experienced "home chefs" and I am sure we will all be trying his recipes. Andrea makes you feel welcome in his kitchen and then of course in his... More

Chef Andrea's cooking class was a highlight of my trip. Limited to a group of 12, it was very hands on. Andrea is extremely opinionated in the best possible way. he knows his, stuff, has strong views, and teaches well. I'm an experienced cook, but learned a lot. Highly recommended.

Chef Andrea is truly a dynamo and will keep you busy both mentally and physically for the entire duration of the class (though you are invited to take a break and relax if you need to!) I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about food, but I learned quite a bit from Chef Andrea--from how to avoid salmonella on your farm fresh... More

I went on my own and had no trouble finding the restaurant ( just head for the Garabaldi bridge and keep on walking straight down into Trastevere for 20 mins), or fitting in with the great group of Aussies, with one token couple from NY who certainly knew their wines. Chef Andrea helped introduce everyone and he was extremely entertaining... More

Really great experience. This was a present for my moms birthday, and she was happily surprised. We all really enjoyed the day, cooking, learning and meeting new people. Andrea is just great and passionate. Can't recommend this enough!

This was one of the highlights of our trip!! It was well worth doing. Chef Consoli and Erica were great. The food and the experience opened my eyes to a whole different way to enjoy another country. I highly highly recommend this experience to anyone traveling to Rome. Our group was great too. We had a couple from Israel, a... More

My mother and I did 3 cooking classes in Rome and 3 wine and food classes with Vino Roma. We enjoyed them all and each were very different. My review here will be for the 3 cooking classes, 2 with Fabiolous and one with Cooking Classes in Rome. First of all, we enjoyed all three classes. Each were very different... More

We had never taken a cooking class like this before. We had such a great time and a lot of fun. The food was delicious easy to prepare. In this class the participants help prepare the food and then sit down and eat their creations. Do not worry about taking notes because all of the recipes are sent to you... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
