We have been traveling through Italy taking cookery classes and this by far was the worst experience yet. It was not worth the time nor euros. A big commercial kitchen rushed with ordinary preparation and a giant staff with so so products. We just came off several cookery classes in Venice, Tuscany and Rome and sadly this one did not...

Our visitors rating is our best reply: Anyway we regret very much if this customer did not enjoyed our cooking class, we don’t understand what really was the problem and we will never understand why they did not open themselves to share and face their mind with our chefs. Opening a little debate it is a good occasion for everybody... More

When booking the cooking class we were a little skeptical about what our boyfriends would think, but we all had a ball! The chef, Giuseppe and the translator Franco were a riot…and they had a lot of patience with us! We learned how to make homemade Gnocchi Sorrentina, Fettucine with Pesto, Eggplant Parmiginia (my absolute favorite), and Tiramisu! After we... More

I was VERY reluctantly dragged off the beach by my wife for a "cooking class" at Buca di Bacco, which turned-out to be just fantastic. Our kids (ages 8/11/14) are big Food Network fanatics and so love cooking - this will be a highlight of our visit to Positano for them. Luigi and the chefs did a fabulous job, making... More

Wonderful afternoon in the kitchen with my 3 daughters, learning to make fresh pasta, gnocchi, cherry tomato sauce, pesto, eggplant parmagiana, and chocolate profiteroles. We learned under the guidance of Chef Andrea, ably translated by Raphaelle (who also took many pictures and poured prosecco!) Everyone gets a goodie bag (apron, gnocchi paddle, cookbook) At the end of the lesson, the... More

This was a very enjoyable day of hands-on cooking instruction, under the Guidance of chef Giuseppe, assistant chef Joe and translator Raphael. We made eggplant lasagna, linguine with fresh pesto, gnocchi with cherry tomato sauce and profiteroles. I leaned many Italian kitchen tips and techniques, which I'll take home and use regularly. The staff were very friendly and attentive and... More

We attended cooking class last Friday with advice and guidance from Giuseppe, the head chef and Luigi. Really enjoyable and informative class and we had the pleasure of eating our lesson afterwards accompanied by lots of wine! A great afternoon - thank you Giuseppe and Luigi.

We had a really enjoyable afternoon - one the highlights of our honeymoon trip to Italy in fact. Chefs Luigi, Giuseppe and GiGi were great fun, and were really keen to share their passion for food and cooking with our group of 6. We prepared (and Giuseppe cooked) our dinner of fresh linguine style pasta with fresh pesto, a parmigiana... More

The cooking class at Hotal Buca di Bacco was our favorite activity of our 16 day Italian adventure. Head Chef Andrea & assistant and translator Luigi were the primary reason it was our favorite. They were so helpful and such fun, plus they made us feel like we were the best class they ever had. Not only that but we... More

We were lucky to take an amazing cooking class at Hotel Buca di Bacco. From the moment we arrived, we felt special. A cloth bag with goodies and a glass of Prosecco (continually filled) awaited us. We put on our chef's hats and aprons, ready to go! There were four of us with chef Michele De Martino and wonderful interpreter... More

My wife and I do cooking courses all the time. It's our thing, so I'm a semi expert on the subject. Easy 5 stars here. They were well organized and work to everyone's skill level. They had all the ingredients prescaled, and everyone got to make their own pasta. Plus you get a nice little cookbook and apron. The recipes... More
