My 16-year-old daughter and I did a pasta cooking class with Marika. It was the highlight of our visit to Venice - and that's saying a lot since our entire trip was wonderful. Marika is incredibly knowledgeable and made our time with her very enjoyable and informative. We immediately bought a pasta machine when we got home and can't wait... More

Marika is very gracious, passionate about her cooking and a lot of fun to be around. My wife and I spent a wonderful day learning new cooking techniques from her. The whole experience was a hoot, well worth the time and money. Jamie and Siv Zitnik

We enjoyed meeting Marika and cooking with her in her home. She is very warm and friendly and taught us new techniques. She made it easy and fun. We chose the pasta menu which was fun to do in Italy but not as practical for everyday life back home. In retrospect, I would have chosen something less time intensive for... More

My family attended this cooking class after our Mediterranean cruise. It was a fantastic way to end our European adventure. We chose the summer menu. Everything was fresh and delicious. Marika welcomed us into her home (all 11 of us) and showed us up to her amazing kitchen. We peeled shrimp, filleted salmon, kneaded pasta, made basil oil and basil... More

My Boyfriend and I took a pasta extravaganza cooking class with Marika and LOVED IT! She is so warm and great at explaining things to those who don't have much cooking experience. We splurged on this class and were glad we did. It made for an excellent finish to a great trip!

If you are a fan of slow travel and have a day to spare while staying in Venice, a class with Marika at her Acquolina cooking school is a fabulous thing to do. The excursion to Lido and stroll up to Marika's villa is lovely, and the villa itself will take your breath away...Marika is an inspiring teacher and put... More

For the past 2 years, I have had the most wonderful opportunity to take my Grade 5 students to Venice to explore the magical Venetian history and culture. A part of our tour involves spending an afternoon with Marika where she teaches the children how to prepare, cook, present and of course taste truly amazing Venetian food. On both occasions... More

The villa is beautiful and very comfortable and welcoming. The cooking classes were fun and informative - enviable kitchen! The lunches we cooked were fabulous!
