We had a fantastic time taking Moreno's cooking class! I'll note up front that this is more of a cooking demonstration than a hands-on class. When I first realized that I have to say I was a little unsure, but after I got there and settled in I realized it would be an extremely entertaining day. We were greeted by... More

One of our most memorable dining experiences in Italy. The food was original with the best fresh ingredients. The owners (chef and his wife) were excellent hosts and they provided transportation. A real plus for novice travelers. The cost was very reasonable. Don't miss it ! It was great !

We had such a fantastic time thanks to Moreno's fun personality, warm hospitality, and excellence in his trade. He kindly picked a few of us up at the ferry dock at 10am (we were staying in Bellagio, less than 15 minutes by boat) and drove us to his restaurant in the nearby village where he grew up. There were 11... More

It is simply a really wonderful day! We live in Hawaii, halfway around the world from Varenna and follow TA recommendations to a point. Going to this class is going to be a very fun insightful day. Gracious hosts and a entertaining day with insights on how to prep and cook with successful tips that you can incorporate into your... More

Spent a day at il caminetto cooking lesson in Varenna. Moreno, the owner, picked us up at our condo, the ride up was a delight in itself. I don't think you would see the back hills if not for this commute. Moreno was charming and funny. The class consisted of 12 people from all over the world. We started with... More

We enjoyed a wonderful day with Chef Moreno. He showed us how to cook in a simple way that we will be sure to use when we get home

So glad I had read about this cooking class online before our trip. We were able to get a reservation to attend on the day of our choice during our 3 night stay in Varenna. This was the one activity we were most looking forward to during the Varenna portion of our trip. The experience completely exceeded our expectations! Our... More

Chef Moreno picked us up at Varenna's main square for a gorgeous ride to his restaurant and the fun began. After selecting fresh eggs at the local market in Varenna, he carefully prepared tortelloni with ricotta & fresh herbs, roasted pork loin with pancetta & herbs, & an amazing potato casserole. Watching the preparation was not only informative but also... More

This was a wonderful experience as most other reviewer have attested. Moreno is charming and a good teacher. My wife was hesitant because she is an experienced cook. She decided it was worth it if she got 1 good tip and ended up getting several! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the wine and met some really nice people. After they... More

This is an all day event! But we have no regrets. We were picked up from the ferry stop and taken up to Moreno's restaurant in a beautiful little village away from the touristy area of Varenna. We were given a coffee on first arrival and throughout the day more then enough wine! The food which was made in front... More
