Moreno is the best
Sep 2019
For my wife and me, cooking class at Il Caminetto was the highlight of our stay on Lake Como. It was a full day of perfection from convenient pick-up and drop-off, warmth and hospitality, great food and entertainment, not to mention as much wine as we could drink.

Cooking Class - Ill Caminetto Ristorante - Varenna Lake Como
Dec 2019
Our family group of 7 people (4 adults and 3 children 16, 14, 10) took part in this cooking demonstration in early December 2019. It was a fantastic experience. We took the train to Varenna from Milan. Moreno picked us up from the station and drove us to the little village of Gittana above Varenna. A beautiful location with stunning views of the lake and snow capped alps in the distance.
The ristorante was cosy and inviting and Mareno and his wife were welcoming and entertaining.
It was lovely and relaxing watching Mareno cook and share his knowledge - we helped out from time to time, but mainly we watched, ate, drank and generally had a wonderful time.
The food was fantastic and plentiful. We made tortellini with tomato sauce and gnocchi with mushroom sauce (our request).
All of us really enjoyed the experience and it was a definite highlight of our entire holiday.
When the day was over Moreno dropped us in town where we enjoyed a walk in the remaining daylight before catching the train back to Milan.
Highly recommended.
The price is very reasonable for what you get.

Awesome cooking class with Moreno was a trip highlight
Oct 2019
Don't be shy about giving this a try! The restaurant – which I hear is wonderful – offers a cooking class on M/T/Th/F. I’d read good things about the class and it lived up to expectations. Complementary transportation is provided to/from local towns/hotels. Ours was a group of 10 and there didn’t appear to be room for many more so class size is cozy. The class is largely demonstration and instruction with some hands-on opportunities as well…you get to eat what’s made during the class. Moreno was a delight – very down to earth fellow with a witty sense of humor. Highly recommend as this was one of the highlights of our trip. Class runs from about 10-3:30 and costs 67 Euros (cash only). Inquiries via email were handled promptly. I can't wait to try making my own tortelloni!

Cooking class
Sep 2019
Chef Moreno was a wonderful host who picked us up in Varenna and took us to his restaurant. We were treated with pastries and cappuccino while he explained how the day would progress. Then came the meats and cheese along with wine of the region. We all participated in the tortellini making. Then we got to enjoy the meal, then dessert and lemoncello. Truly a wonderful day and experience.

Il Caminetto Cookery Classes
Sep 2019
Chef Moreno is a wonderful teacher - makes class lively and fun with several historical touches. We were picked up near our hotel and were driven home after the class. That was very convenient as the hotel is high up on a mountain outside of Varenna. We arrived to cookies and coffee.
We learned to make home made pasta, tortellini and a wonderful tomato sauce with simple, fresh ingredients. Then we learned to make veal scallopini. We were served all this in a wonderful meal with plenty of wine - red or white. We finished with limoncello and a certificate of attendance. The class was about 6 hours including travel.

Cooking class perfecto 👍
Oct 2019
We were a family of 4 adults from Oz and loved the cooking experience. From the pickup at the ferry port at Varenna up to the beautiful little Italian village and Moreno the 8th generation Italian Chef who was so entertaining and informative and showed us how to cook tortellini and we had a hand at it too, everything was perfect. Then he cooked veal scallopini and we ate that too. Wine coffee meat and cheese platter were enjoyed and the banter around the table with 7 others made for a memorable day. Beautiful little restaurant lovely husband and wife team and the authentic Italian food buonissimo. It was much fun too. It’s an Italian cooking experience not a cooking school so if you want to relax with a wine watch Moreno turn his hand at pasta make delicious pasta sauce and an Italian veal dish and you get to craft the tortellini (And enjoy a beautiful meal) then book it. It is one of the best experiences we have done in Europe
Thank you Moreno Rosella and Maria
Let’s see if we can make what we have leant back in Oz !

A highlight of our honeymoon
Aug 2019
We had such a lovely time! It was so much fun getting to know the other travelers along with Chef Moreno! It was so fun watching Chef Moreno cook and his passion for food is contagious. We learned a lot of tips and tricks and drank plenty of delicious wine. It was a top highlight of our honeymoon trip to Italy!

Hilight of our trip!
May 2019 • Couples
In one word- perfect!

- The free pick up and drop off from Varenna ferry port was so helpful for first time visitors to Lake Como.
- Mareno is really engaging and has a great sense of humour! He makes the whole experience really fun.
- The lesson was really great, with great tips for recipes which we could easily make at home
- The day starts with tea, coffee and snacks, with wine served throughout the afternoon, two meals (Mareno cooks the meals we help prepare) and the day ends with limoncello (which was the best limoncello we’ve had) - with all of this included, it is so good value for money- we would have paid a lot more given the really high quality and fun experience!

Thank you!

We spent the day 10-4:30 at the cooking class and it was a very fun, educational and one of the highlights of our stay on Lake Como! Moreno was so sweet and entertaining I would highly recommend this cooking class to anyone visiting the lake!!! The class was in a casual setting and allowed you to ask questions and get tips from Moreno and some of the guests. We drank, cooked, laughed and made new friends. It was a great experience😘. Thank you thank you!

Amazing experience
Jun 2019 • Couples
From start to finish this was a day to enjoy. From being picked up outside our hotel to watching Chef Moreno make pasta and sauces, and prepare a huge turkey breast for us to eat later. Chef is very amusing and his stories and anecdotes went down very well with all that attended. The food was delicious and the wine and limoncello flowed freely. This is more of a demonstration than a cookery class but was very informative and enjoyable and we did get to have a go at making tortellini. Fantastic value for money and highly recommended
