Relaxing evening cooking with Lorenzo
Feb 2020 • Family
Lorenzo was waiting for us at the agreed meeting point, it was then a short walk to his home. We had a lovely relaxing evening cooking with Lorenzo in his kitchen. We made 3 courses - the food was beautiful in its simplicity, a delicious meal was created under Lorenzo’s patient guidance. Our girls (12&14) really enjoyed the process, they especially loved making pasta. None of us have ever been fans of aubergines but wow the way Lorenzo cooks & serves them was a revelation! Lorenzo was a generous host on all fronts, it was a pleasure for us as a family to meet him & spend time with him 😊

Delicious and Fun
Nov 2019
My wife and I took the class with Lorenzo. We went to his home and worked in his kitchen. He gave us a choice of menu items and we selected: home made pasta Bolognese, polenta with fresh mushrooms, and tiramisu.

We prepared the meal with his assistance. He did a great job showing us the basics and then left it to us (with supervision) to execute the plan. And then of course we got to eat -- with a nice glass of wine. The food was fantastic! Everything was amazing. And the recipes were simple so we will be able to replicate them at home. It was also a treat to have the class in his house and talk to him about Venetian life and exchange ideas about where to stay/what to do on his upcoming US vacation.

I highly recommend this class. It was fun and the food was amazing. It was also a great way to get away from the tourist crowds for a few hours.

Interesting cooking, lovely food, local wine and grappa
Oct 2019
We had a great few hours with Lorenzo, learning how to cook some lovely food, and then enjoyed it with local wine and grappa. Lorenzo is very hospitable, friendly and knowledgeable and we were able to take our leftovers back to our apartment to enjoy again. Highly recommended.

Fantastic dinner with a fantastic group!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Lorenzo was amazing and may be one of the only people in the world to be able to show my wife how to cook! We both had a fantastic time getting to learn and at the same time meet people from all over!

Good class, but it will be better with less people
Sep 2019
We like the experience overall. Lorenzo took us to his apartment and we all cook together while we were drinking wine and making new friends, the only problem in our particular case is that the group was very big (10 people) and there was a lot of downtime since there were not that many things for everybody to do at the same time.
Again, we like it, we had fun, we made new friends and the food was good, but having a smaller group will enhance the *cooking* experience.

Completely unprofessional scam.
Sep 2019 • Couples
This person told us to show up at the meeting point and then didnt show up. Our entire day's plan was ruined. Shame on TripAdvisor to allow such a scam. We arrived 1 hour early and waited. They kept ignoring calls, texts and email when we asked where they were. A few people in Venice have told me that is actually a scam and this is how they get money

Awesome experience
Lorenzo was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable which makes sense since he’s a chef. We had an amazing experience from start to finish. We met at a water bus pickup location just 5 minutes walk from his home and after arriving, getting situated and getting to know one another the fun began. We made a 3 course meal all from scratch using only the freshest ingredients and everything turned out completely delicious. Not only did he guide and advise us during he process but he also gave us very helpful tips and allowed us to take notes so we could re-create everything back at home. We highly recommended booking him for anyone that is looking for a cooking class attend.
