This was amazingly fun. Learned a lot about cooking pasta and other dishes, ate what we cooked, and the wine flowed like water. Very entertaining, great service (including a ride to/from our hotel), excellent food.

After spending from 10 am to 5 pm learning from a master chef and getting to sample some of the most delicious food and wine, all I can say is "Wow!" This was my second time to learn about Italian cooking from Moreno--and my wife's third time in the class. Each time has been different--each time a fun experience. It... More

We were blown away. I had dinner at Il Caminetto with my mom and I have to say that it was the best meal either of us have ever had. We didn't do the cooking lessons and we regret it. If you're in Varenna for any length of time, dinner or cooking lessons (but preferably both) should be on your... More

At the last minute my husband and I were able to secure two spots in Chef Moreno's cooking class. We heard about it from a couple we had just met the day before and who would be going on the same tour. My husband is not a great cook but became very enthusiastic. The other people who attended were interesting... More

I would recommend booking your experience in advance. Moreno was a great teacher and was very entertaining! The set up was great with wine and snacks throughout the lesson. He seems like a very loving and happy person! The set up was great to meet others and socialize while the class is in transition. The food was also delicious!

We were in Lake Como for three days, and had scheduled our class in advance. We were picked up by the ferry landing along with several other people and taken to Ristorante Il Caminetto. Moreno was a wonderful teacher and very entertaining, and the food was outstanding. We come back to have dinner at the restaurant the next evening, and... More

What a fun and educational day we had with Moreno at his cooking class. We were 11 people and it seems everyone enjoyed this as much as myself. I now know how to make tortollonis and will definitely try to do this at home. Moreno has a superb command of the English language and has a wonderful sense of humor... More

We had booked the Cooking class with Chef Moreno long ago. The day we were scheduled to be there, it was raining. It turned out to be a perfect way to spend 5 hours. We were transferred from the ferry stop by taxi, thank goodness, as the roads are narrow and full of turns. 15 Americans spent the day watching... More

We stayed at the B & B across from the restaurant the night before our class. Rosella met us as planned and whisked us away up the hill. We attended the Cooking class the next day. There were 14 participants and it was rather impersonal, and Chef did not take time to get to know anyone or ask our names... More
