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

My husband and I went on our honeymoon and absolutely loved this class. It's only about 2 hours and they move everything along quickly so you are never bored. They teach you about 5 simple Italian recipes that you can re-create at home (Eggplant Parmigiana, pesto sauce, a basic tomato sauce, gnocchi, regular pasta and chocolate profiteroles). The people leading... More

Book a cooking class here - it is so much fun and you learn quite a lot, even if you are a great cook already. The staff is funny and helpful, and you get to eat all you made at the end. We even had a gluten free person in our class, and they went above and beyond to make... More

From the moment the class started we felt very comfortable and the staff (3) are very good. The translator , Rafaele , was very good and knowledgable about food in the Campania region as well as the rest of Italy. The chef was also excellent and he always gave extra attention wherever questions about technique and process were. In the... More
