This was one of our favorite family activities in Positano. Our daughters, ages 8 and 10, loved it almost as much as we did. The chefs were unbelievably patient and helpful with them. I was skeptical at first, because they are so young, but relied on other reviews and I'm so glad I did. I love to cook, and do... More

My daughter and I about 2:15 hours cooking with the chef and had a great time. Very hands on, we chopped and peeled and molded. We made arancini, eggplant parm with homemade sauce, gnocchi with pesto sauce and profiteroles. We sipped prosecco while we cooked. After cooking, we got to sit and look out on to the Positano beach and... More

My wife and 13 year old son signed up for this class in advance of our visit to Positano. They were excited and the instructor did not disappoint. The class was just 4 individuals, very hands on, and the chef was very nice and spoke English. They got to try the food they cooked, sitting outside, drinking wine (not my... More

The thing about Positano is that there's only so much you can chill, swim, eat and drink. After a while, I just needed to do something different. On our daily walk down to the beach, we used to pass Buca di Bacco and in the kitchen window was a sign that said Cooking Class. After enquiring for myself and the... More

My 12 yr old daughter and I joined a cooking class here last week. Wonderful experience. Learned how to make pasta, gnocchi, profiteroles and a baked aubergine dish (cant remember the name). Lovely experience, all washed down with some glasses of prosecco. Highly recommend this if you are wanting a basic cooking lesson. I think they do more advanced ones,... More

My sister and I participated in the cooking class at Buca di Bacco. It was truly an outstanding experience! Andreas and Raffaele provided us with a memorable class. We had lots of laughs and learned some wonderful cooking tips as we participated in making the food. The wine flowed freely thoughout the class and Raffaele graciously took many pictures of... More

My two daughters (11 and 14) and I enjoyed the class. We learned so much in two hours. The staff were so much fun and were really great teachers. We are so excited to try the recipes at home. This experience far exceeded my expectations.

Truly a highlight in a trip full of highlights! We learned so much in this fast paced, lively, and fun cooking class. The chefs provided hands-on guidance for classic recipes. I consider myself a very good cook and I still learned a lot. Other reviews on this site provide details of the process. We enjoyed the communal meal afterwards, overlooking... More

We were in Positano for a week and took a couple of cooking lessons when here. Even though we both cook, we walked away learning lots of little tips and tricks to sharpen our skills. We made eggplant Parmesan, 3 kinds of pasta, and cream filled profiteroles. The recipes were all given to us and chef Giuseppe and Liuigi were... More

For 240 euros (2 people) you get 2 and a bit hours of fun in a professional kitchen with the most accommodating of chefs (we had Pepe) and hosts. Prosecco whilst you cook and once you're done you go up to the restaurant to eat with more free wine being supplied. They were incredibly knowledgeable, patient and taught us both... More
