This class is what made Venice so SPECIAL to us!! After a short boat ride we arrived to her beautiful home! The flowers around the home are gorgeous! There seemed to be a slight confusion about our booking but within 5 minutes Marika had us in the kitchen and ready to go! My husband was not very adamant about taking... More

Went with friends to half-day class. It was one of the best parts of our trip to Italy. We made several kinds of pasta that were fabulous. Marika was a great teacher and a lot of fun. Would love to go back and do it again.

We scheduled a class with Marika at the end of May 2015 and were pleasantly surprised at every aspect. The classes are held in a beautiful professional kitchen, in an elegant home and location that feels far from the madding crowd of Venice. As a chef, Marika is professional, knowledgable, and an excellent instructor. As a hostess, she manages all... More

I signed up to take a tour the night before it was scheduled. It turns out, that not enough people signed up so it was cancelled. I called in the morning before the tour was scheduled to start as I had a feeling that might be the case. Marika apologized profusely, even though it wasn't her fault, and did her... More

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Venice. One of the highlights of our time there was a half-day culinary experience at Acquolina Cooking School -- what an amazing experience! Chef Marika and her wonderful team welcomed us with warmth and enthusiasm. We participated in preparing gnocchi, ravioli, fettuccine, tiramisu and panna cotta, among other dishes. This... More

My wife and I just spent 7 beautiful days in Venice celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. One of the best highlights was our cooking class with Marika. She is a lovely person and an amazing chef. She treats you like an old friend from the moment you meet. She exudes a genuine passion for food and desire to bring people... More

I had booked the Aquolina cooking class for myself and my husband during our time in Venice. They had promptly confirmed our class, and communication regarding the class was great. Then about a week before we depart for Italy I receive an email asking what days we will be in Venice, as they will need to have some work done... More

Dear Christine, I totally understand your discontent and frustration in not being able to enjoy one of our sought-after cooking classes. We receive many requests every day and believe me, we always try to satisfy them all (as you can read on the numerous reviews) even on holidays where Chef Marika may have personal and family commitments (please read this...

The best meal we ate while in Italy was in Marika's kitchen. We have already made the same dishes several times since being home.

This was by far one of my favorite parts of my trip to Venice! The villa is amazing and the class was so much fun! Only had 2 other people in our class so it was very personal and we left so full! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Venice.

What can I possibly say to express how valuable the Acquolina cooking class was to our trip! We are a family of five, with 3 girls aged 14, 14, and 11. I am a dietitian and my girls and I love to cook together. We learned an immense amount from Marika. I just asked my girls what was their favorite... More
