This was part of our tour and I really didn't want to waste my whole afternoon cooking! I was so wrong. This was one of my most favorite times in Florence. We made gelato, pasta, sauce and Mediterranean chicken and of course bruschetta. We ate in a beautiful room and the wine flowed. I don't know if they do groups... More

I have now been to this little cooking school in Italy three separate trips. The chef/teachers make it so much fun while you have hands on experience learning to make pasta, sauces, appetizers, and desserts. After preparing the food, you are taken to a cellar where your food in presented. it is always delicious.

Here as part of a Rick Steves tour of Venice, Florence and Rome. The cooking lesson sounded like fun AND IT WAS! Our group was broken up into teams of around 8 each. We made fresh fettucine from scratch; a wonderful tomato sauce with capers and garlic (lots of it by our team ... apparently we were supposed to save... More

My mom and I wanted to get cooking classes with Nona while in Florence but we got the next best thing! Our tour operator, Travelive, added this to our itinerary. We were the only 2 people in our class and got great personal attention. We made a delicious and easy 4 course italian feast. Our cooking instructor was lovely and... More

Like the bike rides with another company in Florence, when I like something, I go back. Each time the meals have been different, and except for one couple last year, everybody seems to have a good time. The meals prepared have always been delicious, with wine, and good company.

We were here on our honeymoon and decided to take a cooking class. Our cooking instructors were excellent, and the recipes are easy enough for beginners to follow. The food was amazing!! We had a great couple to share our time with, and we had good wine to have with our food. Overall, a great experience!

I went with a tour group to In Tavola in Florence--so much fun! We crowded the room up a bit--about 26 of us for 5 cooking stations, but it worked out. We made fresh bruschetta, peeled red peppers and tomatoes for a pasta sauce, made fresh pasta, and also a simmering chicken dish. And gelato for dessert! After it was... More

this was one of the most fun nights of our trip we made an eggplant appetizer, spinach and ricotta ravioli, pollo alla cacciatora (hunter's chicken), and chocolate souffle - then ate it all downstairs at a big table with all the other students and some tasty wine. Making the food with their great instructions was fun and then eating it... More

We did the market tour and cooking class for 73 euro, which was a little steep for our price range , but it was very worth it! It was interesting, fun and an overall great experience. Would highly recommend!
