Traveler Tips


  • "This is a must attend if you're spending time in Rome."
  • "It would be helpful to include more instructions on how to get there and also let people know that transportation can be arranged back to the hotel."
  • "I think it is perhaps useful to note that this class is in a home, and so whilst you do a lot of preparation yourself, the do not do the cooking, as there is not space."

We had a great time learning traditional methods to these dishes. The instructors give clear and easy to follow instructions. They help you through each step so that you truly understand. I will use what I have learned for when I get home.

the class was fantastic. we did meatballs and Ravioli. my wife has a gluuten allegry, and we were going to cancel when we found out what we were cooking, but they graciously allowed her to cook (she is not allergic to touching glutinous things) and then made her a gluten free meal so she could eat with us. just a great overall experience.

Fun experience to do with kids

We had a great time at this class. I had read previous reviews and we had been told by our travel agent that the location of this class was a private residence. When we arrived, we were surprised to find that it was a small restaurant. Our instructor was very patient and explained well as we went along. He went around the table multiple times to help out the class--about 12 people. Making pasta by hand is a lot of work! My kids, ages 10 and 12, had a great time too. They were very happy to get their hands dirty! First we made meatballs by combining the meat and soggy bread, then rolling the balls. The pasta dough for the ravioli took the bulk of our prep time. The filling was ricotta cheese and a bit of spinach. Everyone in the class got the raviolis that they made. The kitchen in the back cooked each group's food separately, which was good for the others because our raviolis weren't the best looking. It was very good, if a little bland. This was definitely a carb- and gluten-heavy meal. Overall we had a great time, especially my kids. My only complaint is that the meat (for meatballs) and the filling of the raviolis seemed a little sparse. But I would recommend this activity because how many people can say they made pasta in Rome?!?

This was such a fantastic class. We made three traditional Roman sauces for pasta. Thank you so much for modifying the class. We can now make these pasta dishes at home. Loved the class and the teacher. So kind and friendly and the sauces are delicious! Love cooking in a true Roman kitchen!

Ravioli and Meatball Cooking Class

A very enjoyable experience at a small restaurant in the Trast Evere section of Rome. We were a small group so received individual attention. Our chef,Alexandro, taught us how to make pasta dough, roll it, fill it, and cut it to create ravioli. We also made Italian meatballs. After the meal was cooked for us, we ate our ravioli and meatball dish accompanied by a glass of red wine.

I'm really happy that you enjoyed the experience of ravioli and meatballs! I am very happy and I hope you will make both ravioli and meatballs at home!

The chef was great but I think putting so much bread and less than a pound of beef in the meatballs to cover 7 people was really cheap. They were all bread no meat. The kitchen was way too small to let eve very one see. Not a great experience
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
I'm sorry that you haven't found our satisfying experience: the bread we use is used to make meatballs softer .. In the end it's a matter of taste! Thanks anyway for choosing us

Awesome experience

Vincenzo was our Chef/host. He was knowledgeable about pasta and meatballs as well as the town of Rome . We had a great time learning how to make pasta (Ravioli) and meatballs. He explained everything and why it was done that way. We enjoyed eating our creations and the conversations with the chef. Afterward as we walked out he told us about sites to see in Rome and pointed out couple of sites that were within walking distance from where we were. So we got to walk off our dinner and see some local sites we had not been aware of before. Overall it was a very enjoyable evening.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you felt pampered by our chef Vincenzo! For us it is always a joy to read reviews of this kind as they emphasize our love for Italian cuisine! I hope you have brought with you a piece of Italy with our experience in your suitcase! Thanks

kind of a no frills lesson - would have liked to learn how to make proper filling for the raviolis instead of just making the pasta good meatball tips

I'm sorry that you haven't completely enjoyed the experience of ravioli and meatballs! Every detail on the filling of the ravioli is given at the beginning of the class, but I'm glad you liked the meatball part

Replaced by Pasta and Tiramisu Class
DebberDiver
, Jul 2019
We signed up for the ravioli and meatballs class and the day before the class, I received a text that the class was cancelled and they offered the pasta and tiramisu class instead. I was somewhat disappointed because I was looking forward to learning how to make ravioli and meatballs. Plus, the ravioli class was longer and included an apertif and seasonal vegetables in addition to the foods offered in the tiramisu class. The price was the same for both classes. All that being said, we thoroughly enjoyed our class. Joe was our chef and he was great. His explanations and demonstrations were very clear and easy to follow. He gave everyone individualized attention, especially with respect to making the pasta the right consistency and thickness. In addition, when I returned home, the recipes for everything along with a group picture were in my inbox. The pasta was delicious and we got to choose from three different sauces. The tiramisu was amazing. After the class, we were thinking about different variations on the tiramisu recipe (most of them included chocolate). We also met some very nice people during the class, so there was a social aspect to the class as well. I would rate the pasta and tiramisu class a 5. The reason for my lower rating is because of the last minute cancellation of the ravioli class.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience of the class of ravioli and meatballs, but I am happy that we were able to satisfy you the same with our pasta and tiramisu lesson. We always try to find an alternative solution in case of need and we are happy that you enjoyed the experience. Thanks a lot
