We were 9 people total for the cooking class and it was a genuine and authentic experience. The meatballs we made were outstanding as well as the homemade chilled red wine that was provided. The dessert was also amazing. The only thing that was slightly off putting is that we were drinking wine and water for 3 hours so inevitably had to use the restroom and we were not able to use theirs. I would also recommend to bring some sort of hand wipes as after we made the pasta our hands were sticky and covered in flour and there was nowhere to clean them. Overall we had a great experience and I definitely would recommend this cooking class to others. Carla and Rocco were very nice and welcoming!

Hi Alexa, Thank you for your opinion, we are happy that you enjoyed the meatballs, wine and that you would recommend our experience to everyone, but we are sorry to read about the restroom and hand supplies. In fact we have two restroom (one upstairs and one downstairs in case of emergency), sorry if we have not warned you but usually it is the guests who ask. We also always provide our guests with sanitizers (gel or liquid), napkins, wet handkerchiefs and flavored water, are always on the right at the entrance to our patio. Thank you again, A big hug from us

Spent a beautiful evening at this cooking class. The hosts are lovely and very kind to open up their home for us. The food was incredibly fresh and even better knowing it all came from their farm. The views for dinner were also amazing. Very intimate and authentic experience
Highly recommend taking this class if you’re spending some time in Praiano or Positano

Carla and Rocco were absolutely amazing hosts, both with a passion for Italian food and wine, both of which they source themselves by growing their own product and making their own wine!

We contacted them in advance using WhatsApp, as both my wife and I are vegan, to check that they could offer a vegan cooking class. They told us that they could offer a vegan cooking option. We were not disappointed!!

When we arrived, Rocco was very welcoming and showed us to our cooking area on their gorgeous home terrace. We started by tasting their homemade red wine, which was extremely smooth and easy to drink. Even my wife liked it and she won't usually drink red wine.

We then moved on to tasting some starters pre prepared by Carla, which included, brusseta, and other lovely nibbles.

Carla then showed us how to make vegan pasta and ravioli along with a vegetable parmigiana. Finally we finished by making a delicious stuffed peach desert, with a cacao filling. The feeling of making homemade pasta felt so authentic. Carla asked whether we would like red or white sauce. We hadn't had any vegan white sauce whilst on the Amalfi Coast, so we opted for white.

The finished product was outstanding and really delicious. Rocco kept us entertained throughout and we chatted like he was an old friend.

We would highly recommend this experience to anyone, but especially to vegans who want to make traditional Italian food in a vegan fasion!

Thank you so much Carla and Rocco! We would love to come back again in the future!

Rocco and Carla hosted a cooking class at our villa in Praiano, Amalfi Coast during a Hen party trip. They were kind enough to come to us and they were also really accommodating to our group’s dietary needs - we ended up making delicious dishes including a vegetable starter and an egg-free pasta main. Each step was carefully explained, they really went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. They also set up the dinner table and without even asking they helped with cleaning afterwards. We had such a fun time learning to cook authentic Italian dishes. The home-made family wine is a must try!!! A massive thank you to Rocco and Carla, they are a lovely couple and we highly recommend booking a class with them.

My girlfriend and I did this experience on a whim of wanting to see a bit more of the real Italy not just the Tourist areas on the Amalfi Coast. We loved it! Rocco and Carla shared their family history and their homemade items. The menu is always changing based on what they are harvesting from their farm. We were able to try some homemade wine, make stuffed peppers, and make some fresh pasta with Carla's help. We really enjoyed everything about it and had fun making new friends while cooking together and learning all about their life in the restaurant business. If you have any questions while there don't hesitate to ask. We got their local insight of everything from how sporting events work to when the best time to harvest vegetables is.

When we first got there we had a little trouble finding the meetup spot and my cell phone didn't have any service. I stopped by a shop to ask if they knew where to go and it turns out everyone in town knows Rocco so they just called him on his phone to come find us. It was a really cute small town. I probably don't know the best way to get there but we did a fair amount of walking from a bus we took from Amalfi. If you went the same path we did, you would've had trouble if you are not able to walk well.

An authentic experience in the Amalfi Coast from a lovely small family business. Rocco and Carla created a wonderful experience for us at their beautiful home. The view is spectacular, and this experience really emphasizes that Praiano is well worth a visit to escape other tourist heavy locations on the coast.

They went above and beyond to cater to our needs, making a special menu for me because I'm vegan; all of the food and drinks were absolutely delicious and still gave a true flavour of local cuisine. The cooking class was really fun and informative, and they shared their recipes with us afterwards so we can recreate the experience at home. They also did a brilliant job of welcoming us into their home and lives without being overbearing.

If you want to meet honest, local people and learn more about what it's really like to live and eat here, I would 100% recommend this experience. Thank you Rocco and Carla (and Alexandro), we hope to see you again in the future and wish you all the best!

Our cooking class with Rocco and Carla was excellent. Rocco met up with us and walked us to his home. They welcomed us with wine and apertivo on their small balcony overlooking the sea, telling us about the class and where the food comes from - they grow much of the food themselves and fish for the seafood.

We made a few vegetable dishes, gnocchi style pasta with sauce, and a dessert similar to tiramisu. All was simple and delicious.

We were sent photos that Rocco took for us as well as recipes after the experience.

Carla and Rocco were very gracious hosts. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to learn about Italian cuisine from locals.

This experience was a joke. We weren‘t even in a kitchen and this event has nothing to do with cooking. For cutting the eggplant we had to use blurred knives. We made the pasta but did not cook anything. The pasta was served with vegetables and no sauce. Someone else made the cooking. The guests did not finish their pasta dish due to the dry consistincy. All over it was a waste of time.

Rocco and Carla provide a truly local and authentic experience! It was such a pleasure to be in their home and talk with them about cooking, unique local products and life in general. Carla is a professionally trained chef and was extremely patient and detailed in her lessons on pasta making, as well as preparing a beautiful stuffed pepper. Rocco is a professionally trained sommelier and offered me tastes of some absolutely unique liqueurs. I can't say enough about their warm hospitality! Whether you are traveling solo, or with family or friends, don't miss this perfect experience on the Amalfi Coast!

Carla and Rocco were amazing host. They welcome you into their home and really give you a homemade Italian cooking experience. We started out with homemade wine, amazing homemade grilled vegetables and bread as an appetizer, then we made stuffed peppers and pasta. They only allow four, as it is in their home and it was a perfect quaint and intimate experience and the view was amazing! Bonus was they have the most adorable toddler! They are a beautiful family and made us feel like family as well. We will definitely come back and see them next time.
