Horrible
Oct 2019 • Friends
Carlo received us in a messy condominium apartment, no kitchen just an electric heating plate and a large foldable table in a messy and run down living room (his?). At our arrival he and two ladies were still mounting the foldable big table. Nothing ready. The cooking itself was a kind of a show him searching the tools for cooking and speaking very bad English. After three hours the food was ready and we could eat. The table was set in a poor manner with ugly and cheap cutlery and a tablecloth too small for the foldable large table. None of them had an idea where the napkin should have been; first it was on the plate and at the end inside the wine glass. Totally disturbing experience. While Carlo's ragu sauce was boiling we prepared the pasta with Luciana. She gave lot of information how to make the dough and about the different types of pasta and made us prepare some of our own. She was nice and knowledgeable and definitely saved the situation. Nevertheless, Iwould not recommend this experience to anyone.

An Enjoyable Learning Experience
Sep 2018 • Couples
We took the class that included a 2 hour market tour on a Saturday that provided personalized service since it was just the two of us. Carlo took us to various shops for ingredients and it was a good way to get a guided tour of the historic district. Luciana was an excellent pasta making instructor. She and Carlo both combined background on technique with science of the various items we made and later enjoyed. Class included a cook book and apron. Carlo was very good about communicating before-hand and picked us up at our hotel to begin the market tour.

Great cooking experience
Aug 2018 • Friends
This was one of the best experiences of our trip to Bologna. The experience starts off with a tour of the market and buying fresh produce to be used during the class. Carlo was highly knowledgeable and made you feel at ease. The cooking lesson takes place in Carlo's home. You were immediately made welcome and felt like family. It was great to be able to cook and ask questions as we went along. Carlo and Gabrielle were very patient. We finished with a great lunch, aprons, bags, certificates and recipes.

Lovely birthday gift from my husband. Highly recommend. Will use this tagliatelle bolognaise recipe for life. Loved Carlo and Luciana. Delicious lunch. Great company - good wine. Market tour was fun. Coffee place best ever. Luciana: I will probably never make fresh pasta myself but I loved your lesson Carlo: I will always make your simple delicious ragù. Thank you both for a lovely experience

Amazing cooking experience
May 2017 • Couples
This cooking class was one of the best experiences during our trip to Bologna. The class takes place in Big Carlo's home and you immediately feel like family when you're there. Even more than the amazing food is the stories, history, and culture we gained chatting as we cooked. The memories and recipes are something I'll keep with me forever.

Fantastic Cooking Experience
Jun 2017 • Family
This was a highlight of our visit to Bologna. Big Carlo took us shopping in the fresh markets for our ingredients then to his home for a great day of learning, cooking and eating the dishes that we prepared. We left with cooking instructions and personalized aprons to reming us of our day. Carlo was a great teacher and person. It was a wonderful experience.

Cookery school experience
Jan 2017 • Couples
We had a wonderful weekend in Bologna in January and the highlight for us was spending the morning shopping for ingredients in the market and learning to cook some classic regional dishes. We were ably looked after by the charming Carlo and he made the experience for us really wonderful. We made fresh Tortelloni, Ragu, and a delicious and much easier than I thought Tiramisu. We enjoyed a great lunch accompanied by some delicious wine and left with many happy memories

Cooking experience at Bologna Cooking School
Oct 2016 • Couples
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Bologna. For years it was my dream to have a cooking lesson in Italy and this experience met our expectations in every way! Carlo and his team were amazing. We learned a lot, not only about cooking but offering some insights into the history of Bologna. I would suggest doing the market and lesson as going to the market alone was so interesting and a treat in itself. We would highly recommend this experience.

What fun!
Sep 2016
Met big Carlo to go shopping. Don't miss this bit, lots of tastings and delicious coffee. Back to the school which is very simple and relaxed but great fun and we learnt loads. Really proud of the pasta we made and bolognese ragu was delicious. Great lunch with our pasta and sauces plus peaches and Tiramisu. Thank you Carlo, a day to remember.
