This cooking class was one of the highlights of our trip!The whole experience was so well organized and very hands-on from start to finish. The staff was great - kind, patient, and just wanting to have fun no matter what your level of cooking knowledge. For me, it was a very unique experience to make fresh pasta and to learn... More

Chef Andre will both entertain and teach you in a quick afternoon course full of Prosecco and laughter...with a ton of food at the end. We prepared Eggplant Parm (do you know how to keep the eggplant crisp and not bitter?), gnocci with pesto (all handmade by you), stuffed beef roll and an orange panna cotta. Gifts of a cookbook...

We wanted to do a cooking class during our stay in Italy and I am so pleased we waited til Positano to experience Buca di Bacco. We had such a wonderful afternoon. It was great to learn how to make the dishes from scratch, we also received a cookbook, apron and chefs hat to take home. Our glass of prosecco... More

From the minute we entered the hotel this was a fantastic experience. My husband did not want to take the class but was made to feel welcome to come back and join us for our meal. Rafaele our interpreter and Giuseppe our chef were highly organized and good teachers. We made tomato sauce, pesto, gnocchi, home made pasta and profiteroles,... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time! We were lucky enough to be the only couple at the class and enjoyed chatting with the chef and interpreter. Our glasses of Prosecco were never empty as we prepared gnocci, pasta and pesto, and eggplant parmigiana from scratch. We got to enjoy the fruits of our labour while overlooking the water... More

We were on the Amalfi coast for a week and had booked in to Bucco di Baco for a cooking class. It was a highlight of our stay. We made heaps of dishes, having lots of fun. The 2 hours passed very quickly and then we got to eat our dishes in one of the best locations in Positano. Michele... More

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
