So I was nervous to book this tour in a foreign country with people I had never met. But what an amazing day! if this was my only experience in Venice, I would have been so satisfied. Scheduling was easy as was deposit. We had a challenge in finding the exact meeting spot, as well as everyone else. But they... More

When we first arrived I was a bit nervous about the menu as it had several things my husband and I don't normally like. However, we were thrilled with the outcome and shocked by how much we liked foods we normally don't. It was a true Venetian experience making seafood pasta and learning how to clean all different types of... More

My girlfriend and I booked this cooking class prior to our trip to Italy this year. Let me say this was one of the highlights to our trip. I found the cooking school after doing a search, and all the reviews were great. The school was easy to get to, and a beautiful place. We made pasta from scratch, gnocchi... More

As we left Marika's cooking class, we started talking about when we could go back, preferably for a week instead of a day, and as soon as possible. The villa is lovely (my youngest daughter asked why we couldn't stay there) and Marika is wise, warm, knowledgeable and the kind of teacher who makes you feel like you can really... More

If you are looking for an authentic Italian culinary experience then Marika's Acquolina Cooking School should be on everyones list when visiting the Venice area. We arrived a day early prior to the start of our tour through Italy and connected at the last minute with Marika. Very quickly (while we were in flight) we booked a cooking class for... More

We booked a cruise that left out of Venice and looked for something to do on the front part of the trip for my husband's 40th birthday. We learned about this cooking class through the company that we booked a Prosecco tour through. We had an amazing time. We learned a lot starting the trip with Marika at the Realto... More

What a great experience for any home cook to learn to make and cook pasta in Italy. After a couple of emails back and forth and it looking like I was the only one booked in Marianne found some more people and we had a nice small group of 4 people. A short vaperetto ride to venice lido and a... More

My boyfriend and I tried to get a reservation for a cooking class on the one day we were in Venice. When we thought it wouldn't be possible, they opened up a class last minute! Thank god because this was such a unique experience that my boyfriend and I will never forget. The class was small, my boyfriend and me,... More

My wife and I were guest at the Acquolina Cooking School in Mid August. First off, I simply think this is one of the best experiences we have ever had traveling. We had originally booked the full day, however due to an Italian Holiday the class was cancelled. Merika was more than helpful in rescheduling us and I really felt... More

All the other reviews are spot-on regarding the experience. My wife and I would do it over without a second thought. The class was nothing but fun all day from the selections of fresh vegetables and fish in the market, to tapas and wine at lunch, to the actual cooking in the villa. Cheers to Mariana, a wonderful host and... More
