At the last minute, we decided to sign up our family of five for a three-hour cooking class at Giglio. Not everyone was sure they'd like it, but it turned out to be a highlight of our trip! This is an intimate, authentic way to enjoy the culture and food in Italy. The kitchen space is great: just outside of... More

My husband and I booked a class while on our honeymoon and we both had THE best time. It's incredibly personal, just you and Marcella, and she couldn't have been more lovely. Aside from that, the knowledge she has is astounding, such an educational class. You really do learn loads - and luckily you get all the info to take... More

Thank you Marcella for teaching us the fine art of quality cooking. 3 generations of women spent the morning cooking gnocchi in a sausage sauce, mussels and clams and a lemon ricotta cheesecake. Hands down the best we have ever eaten. Marcella's knowledge of cooking and her graciousness made for a wonderful day.

Spent a few hours today, with my husband and 2 kids (13 & 15), at the Giglio Cooking School as part of my husband's 50th birthday celebration in Italy. It was the first of 2 lessons and we can hardly wait for tomorrow! Marcella is so nice and, above all, super-professional. She will take your dietary needs and taste into... More

Learning to cook Tuscan food in Florence is a one of a kind experience. Having carefully sifted through the numerous cooking schools in town, we finally chose Giglio Cooking. Marcella was helpful all throughout. I had gotten in touch with her months before our trip, and she assisted me with all our inquiries on scheduling and menu planning. She offers... More

My wife and I finished our tour of Florence with a cooking class with Marcella at her spacious and immaculate classroom. Our time learning to cook was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip. Marcella is a wonderful teacher who is efficient, concise, and loves the challenge of teaching. She is a natural and is able to really cater her teaching... More

We were travelling through Italy in September and one of the recommended things to do is to take a cooking class. We researched on line for various classes and settled on Giglio. Chef and owner Marcella was super friendly and expedient in responding to our inquiries. And to our surprise, when she says it is a private lesson, she really... More

This was the highlight of my trip to Europe, not just Tuscany! The two of us, celebrating our anniversary, assisted Chef Marcella in making Spaghetti Aglio Olio (dry pasta), Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragu (fresh pasta), Pollo alla Diavola, and Mantovana di Prato (dessert), and we were able to include "extras" including a wine caramel sauce to top the dessert...

We took a private class with Marcella, owner and chef extraordinaire, on our recent honeymoon. It was one of our favorite parts of the trip! My husband doesn't cook ... it's not that he dislikes it, just that he doesn't have the chance since I love it and do so every day :) So even though we were going into... More

We picked Giglio after doing a lot of looking at reviews on trip advisor and getting recommendations from our hotel. What a great choice! We are a family of 4, including my wife, 2 daughters (age 10 and 13) and me - middle-aged husband who hates to cook, but wants to humor his wife and daughters (especially his daughters -... More
