      Amazing time learning to make pasta at the chef’s home!
      This was so much fun making authentic Italian in the chefs kitchen! Not only did we leave full and happy after eating pasta we made and tiramisu to die for, but the setting was absolutely beautiful. I have to say I loved Chef Maurizio, but the highlight for me was Chef’s sister. An amazing cook in her own right, and though she didn’t speak a word of English, my group had no problem deciphering her playful banter with her brother or her directions for us. Amazing experience. Don’t pass it up.

      Maurizio.
      It is said that the gods gave Sicily to Sicilians. Maurizio in Catania cooks food for the gods. His knowledge and passion for the soil, sun, volcanic ash and the sea combines with great culinary skill to create a superb meal and cooking experience to savour. First Class and wonderful host.

      This was my favorite excursion in Italy. This experience was amazing to share with my daughter because of the warm hospitality of the host. It will be great making an authentic dish of pasta and tiramisu with some sweet people.

      Good class but terrible customer management
      The pasta course itself was great and Cesarine Francesca was delightful and wonderful with our group. She even picked me up and dropped me back after. However, not her fault, I had my original personal class canceled for no reason- even the Cesarina I was booked with got canceled and she was ready to go. Now I find my Cesarine booking in Cefalu has also been canceled, due to it being peak season. It is not and I booked it and got confirmation 4 weeks ago. Terrible service and management!!

      Magnifico
      Unforgettable experience, one you should definitely book and not miss if you are near Catania. The hosts catered perfectly around any diet restrictions my wife has, and their terrace has an INCREDIBLE view of Catania. The pasta we were taught to handcraft was some of the best pasta I ever had in my life. 10/10

      Bellissimo
      So so worth it! Amazing experience to be brought into Graziella‘a home and to meet her family! We shared many laughs and were very well looked after. We made a Sicilian pesto with tagliatelle and it was delicious 😋 And of course a very tasty tiramisu!

      Outstanding day spent in Catania
      We had an OUTSTANDING time with Marilou. We learned to make two authentic pastas and a a dessert. We then dined together with Prosecco and shared some good conversation. The food was better than the best Italian restaurants we have been to. I hope to visit again on a future trip.

      No thank you — misleading policies
      Cancelled 23.5 hours before after falling very I’ll while traveling and were charged full price. Their cancellation policy is a bit misleading and makes it sound like you at least get something back. They asked if we were coming even after they were told we came down with something while traveling. Steer clear or book last minute incase of emergencies - there was still availability the day of when we checked

      An evening that we’ll remember forever
      Angela, our host, was amazing. She was very generous, patient and kind. She taught us a lot about making pasta and small tricks when cooking that only comes with experience. She also shared lots of useful information and history of the dishes. The evening was planned well and it has gone very quickly. She prepared appetiser's for us and shared her secret recipes. The kitchen was very spacious and air-conditioned. We’ll definitely try and make these dishes again once we return home and we’ll fondly remember this experience.

      We had the best pasta of our lives.
      First of all, we found it really good that our allergies and sensitivities were taken into account. When we got the address, they even offered to pick us up, which was of course very convenient for us. And everything was explained in detail, we made 3 different pastas and two different sauces (including swordfish) we felt like we were cooking with the family, both were very friendly and we felt super comfortable. We can recommend everyone to make the experience themselves. We would definitely do it again.

      The cannoli on top!
      This class became a family affair. Chef Gabriela brought her son met us in the city center for the food market. They then drove us to their home where we made wonderful pasta, caponata, and tuna. A nice selection of appetizers were presented with Prosecco. We had wine with lunch and cannolis for desert. The chefs husband took us back to our hotel after our wonderful experience at her warm and welcoming home. I will surely recommend this experience to my friends! Deliciosa!

      Excellent cooking & Market shopping experience
      Angela and Vittorio were the most amazing hosts of this fabulous experience. They guided us around the bustling and breathtaking market to buy ingredients for the meal we were about to cook. Back at Angela's beautiful and tranquil place, she demonstrated various pasta cooking techniques, and we did our best to copy. It was a laugh. Vittorio translated excellently. Finally, we sat down at the charming table to eat the fruits of our labour. We were truly honoured to spend time with such wonderful people.

    Our family had such a marvelous time with Andrea and Graziella! The view from their balcony is stunning!! You can see the city to one side and Mt. Etna on the other. We went at dinner time and the sunset was incredible. Andrea and Graziella are wonderful hosts that made us feel so welcomed. It was like a family dinner. Making the pasta was so much fun and the food was delicious! I would highly recommend anyone traveling through to make a stop with Andrea and Graziella, you’ll leave full in spirit and in your belly!

    My husband and I came to Marilu's house on the last day of our honeymoon and this class was the highlight of our entire trip. Marilu and her husband were extremely welcoming and warm. We made DELICIOUS food and learned a lot about pasta making and the food specific to Sicily and Catania.

    We felt incredibly at home despite being in another country. Please do not miss this opportunity to learn, taste and experience the very best of Sicily. 10000/10 would definitely recommend.

    I would give this 10 stars if I could!!! My sister-in-law & I took this class while on a cruise stop in Catania. It was the BEST thing we did the entire 10 days of our vacation. It was also the best meal I’ve EVER HAD IN MY LIFE, and I’ve eaten at Babbo in NYC (when it still had a Michelin star). Marilù’s recipes blew it away. The class was fun, the instruction was perfect, and ALL the food was indescribably delicious! I ate a huge plate of the pastas we made & then ate 2 massive slices of the tiramisu we created. I probably could have made room to eat more if I’d walked around the block a few times lolol!!! You are CRAZY if you don’t take the time to do this experience. Just a note: she does not speak english. But we LOVED that & it added to the experience. It was not hard to follow at all even with a language barrier. We used google translate a few times but honestly had no problem communicating!!!! I have to go now…time to recreate the tiramisu recipe I learned from Marilù to impress my friends for a dinner party!!!
