The day after my husband and I got married in Positano, we participated in the Buca di Bacco cooking class, and it was worth every penny! We both love to cook so a cooking class in Italy was a must. Our chef Giuseppe and translator Raphael were outstanding. When we told them we had just gotten married the day before,... More

An amazing cooking course, with very funny and friendly chefs. We had such an enjoyable time and collectively cooked a four course meal which we enjoyed with the other participants afterwards in the restaurant. You cook in their restaurant kitchen which is cool and they continually top up your prosecco glass across the two hours. The price included a goodie... More

We visited Positano on our honeymoon and one of the best things we did during our trip was the cooking class at Buca di Bacco. Luigi and Giuseppe were so kind and made the whole experience easy and fun. We received a cookbook with all the recipes we made (and more), a utensil for making gnocchi and aprons. We got... More

We booked a cooking class for the afternoon. It was around 120 euros and worth every penny. There were 4 couples total. They start out by giving a little gift bag with an apron, some tools and a cook book and pour you a glass of prosecco. The staff was nice and entertaining. We cooked eggplant parmigiana, pesto gnocchi, pizza,... More

Our family of 2 adults & 2 teenagers spent a wonderful afternoon learning to cook local specialties. Our menu included eggplant parmigiana, gnocchi, pesto & chocolate almond cake. Chef Giuseppe and Raffaele were very clear, helpful, funny and engaging. They shared lots of tips to try when home. The class included a gift pack of recipes, apron , a kitchen... More

Always wanted to take a cooking class in Italy and decided on Buca di Bacco. We signed up two days before the day we wanted. Cost 125 euros per person and beginning at 3:30pm. They start you with water and prosecco and a gift of apron, cook book and gnocchi board. We made pesto for gnocchi, a gorgeous tomato sauce... More

Each class holds just 9 people and is held while the restaurant is closed. You are in a professional kitchen and will actually do the work while drinking Prosecco. You will learn lots and have fun at the same time. We made gnocchi in pesto sauce, eggplant parmigiana, individual pizzas and a chocolate cake. The chef and interpreter are fun... More

We were a group from a dinner club that regularly cooks more contemporary food. We were expecting to cook more of a complete meal with a protein. Cooking so many starchy, old world dishes was very disappointing. The food was fair, not wonderful, and we did learn a few tidbits, but we all came out of it feeling it was... More

It took us a while to choose a class but we are very happy we went with this restaurant. The chefs and the waiter/translator were very nice and patient. Not once did it feel rushed or like they weren't happy to be leading the class. They took their time and explained everything and gave us aprons, hats, and a cook... More
