Romantic Experience, Excellent Chef & Flavorful Food
Oct 2019
We chose to spend our 20th wedding anniversary in Sorrento & Positano and this cooking class was the highlight! With only us booking, it made for a romantic experience. Chef Palmira was knowledgeable and thorough with her directions and tips. We made homemade sauce (with vegetables straight from the garden), Caprese style ravioli, eggplant wrapped mozzarella rolls, Napolitano meatballs and a chocolate flan. It was alllll delicious! Palmira even let us sample her limoncello after our meal. Rita and Louisa even allowed us to park our rental car in their tiny garage and assisted! Five stars all around....hospitality, food and fun! Recipes are emailed afterwards. A MUST add to anyone's trip.

Unforgettable
Sep 2019
Our first day in Sorrento could not have been more pleasant thanks to Chef Palmira. Her kitchen is housed in the basement of a beautiful old home (we met the owner who is charming) and the ingredients are sourced from their very own garden. She was articulate and patient (even my husband enjoyed himself) and she made the making of homemade ravioli seem very manageable. It was a great way to spend the morning and certainly our efforts produced an absolutely delicious lunch. My husband is still talking about the eggplant rolls.I happened to ask about gnocci (which was not on our menu) and she quickly whipped out the ingredients and had us make the most delicious I have ever eaten!

Amazing Authentic Experience at Bella Sorrento!!
Sep 2019
Just returned from a girls' trip (7 of us in total) to the Amalfi Coast and must say that our experience at the Bella Sorrento Cooking School with Chef Palmira was absolutely phenomenal!! We cooked with Palmira in a beautiful, rustic and fully-equipped Italian kitchen. We were greeted with fresh orange juice, cheese, local snacks and olive tapenade bruschetta. Our menu included cheese ravioli, meatballs, eggplant rolls and chocolate lava cake. While cooking we enjoyed delicious local Italian white and red wine. Palmira was an excellent chef and instructor with her happy demeanor and great knowledge of authentic Italian cooking. This hands-on experience was truly one of the great highlights of our trip! Thank you Bella Sorrento!!

Such a fun Sorrento experience!
My mom and I took this cooking class — and had a blast! We’d moved our schedule around for the weather, so it ended up being a private session. They were so accommodating! Everything is fresh from the garden. We made ravioli, eggplant, meatballs and the most delicious sauce. And the lava cake for dessert? To die for. Most importantly, we picked up a lot of tips to try at home! Definitely recommend this class to anyone who loves to cook — or just loves food!

AWESOME cooking class in a spacious kitchen with gracious Chef Palmira ending in a delicious meal
Sep 2019 • Couples
Hands on true cooking class. Menu was extensive for a 4 hour cooking class and everything was outstanding. Chef Palmira is gracious, warm, helpful and makes very delicious recipes. Everyone makes their own pasta for a cheese ravioli so we know how to replicate back home. We all helped prepare the meatballs, each of us sliced, deliquified and fried eggplant for Involtini (which was AMAZING!) and together we did the preparations for the chocolate molten cake.

Midway through the class we had a healthy glass of wine to tide us over as we completed the eggplant dish and cake. Everything was delicious... I highly recommend this class, You will learn a lot!!

The garden was at the end of the season so we did not pick our tomatoes or basil but you could tell Palmira's ingredients were fresh picked and so flavorful!

capocuoco Palmira and Host Rita provided us with a wonderful experience. We learned to cook ravioli, eggplant, meatballs and chocolate flan which was followed by our wonderful meal and excellent wine and lemon cello. We would do it again and stay at the b&b! Sorrento hospitality at its best. Gratzie!

Incredible cooking class in Sorrento
Sep 2019 • Solo
Could not recommend this class more! Palmera and Rita were so lovely and welcoming! It is in the most incredible setting right in Sorrento, a beautiful villa surrounded by gardens and Rita’s vegetable garden! We were greeted with cheese, bruschetta and fresh orange juice! The kitchen and room is absolutely beautiful! We made gnocchi, ravioli, meatballs, rolled eggplant and chocolate fondants for dessert! The group was awesome accompanied by a few glasses of wine and at the end we all sat down and got to enjoy a delicious dinner of what we had made! (The food was to die for) Thankyou so much so a lovely afternoon/evening. If I come back to Sorrento I will definitely book again!

Authentic and welcoming
Sep 2019 • Couples
My husband I booked this last minute on TripAdvisor because there was rain predicted for the day and thought this would be their perfect indoor activity.we made an excellent choice. One of the best adventure we had in our 2 week trip in Italy. The kitchen is amazing and the hosts were equally as great. They went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable. They even gave us a ride back to our hotel at the end of the night!
