Marcella was sick. The replacement cook was good but overall I found the experience overpriced and disappointing. The food was good but there was no atmosphere and the wine we were offered had no label and perhaps was the one we used to cook with. I was answered with a scowl and sigh when I informed them I wasn't paying... More

This was a really great time learning to cook classic Italian food with Marcella. She was extremely patient , taught us many things and was very knowledgeable. If you have time this is highly recommended. We finished the session by enjoying the food we prepared with a glass of local wine. Thanks Marcella.

After reading glowing Tripadvisor reviews (all of which are true, by the way!), my spouse, daughter (13), and I did a private night course with Marcella while we were in Florence last week. This was one of the highlights of our trip! First, it was really fun (several times, my daughter would say "this is really happening", which is a... More

My adult daughters and I went to Giglio with Marcella a few weeks ago. We are all experienced cooks, but learned so much from Marcella. She is very knowledgeable and our 3 hours with her were well spent. Thank you Marcella! We hope to see a cookbook from you.

Wonderful class with our two teenage boys - ravioli (filled with spinach and ricotta which even our vegetable phobic son demolished!!), pizza, fried calamari and tiramisu! Excellent experience from start to finish - the boys loved being hands on and making the pasta and pizza dough from scratch as well as learning how to use a knife properly (particularly enjoyed...

Marcella was a wonderful host and teacher. She balanced technique and fun perfectly so that my children and my husband and I each learned from the experience. The class is a perfect way to learn traditional Italian recipes that you can prepare in your own home. So fun!!

I took my 7 year old daughter with me to a 3 hour cooking class with Marcella. She is such a wonderful person and cooking instructor. In advance, she had emailed us a list of hundreds of recipes to select from. We were overzealous and selected 3 different pastas, fried zucchini blossoms, and gelato! She had everything prepped and ready... More

I went to Marcella's with my daughter for her birthday treat and we were thrilled with everything from start to finish. Marcella's welcome, her knowledge and expertise, and her enthusiasm for food and for us to have a wonderful experience made it all perfect. We had chosen our menu before we went, and made pasta with sea bass, gnocchi with... More

Thank you Marcella for everything! Especially for going out of your way to teach me the things I wanted to know, it was a BIG LIST. The food was awesome! I will treasure our time together forever. You are a special lady! Susan M

It has been nearly a year since I wrote my original review for our experience with Marcella, and I feel I need to add a little more to it. My wife and I took a lesson while vacationing in Florence last July, and loved the experience at the time. However, the real value of this experience is the fact that... More
