Delicious meal prepared by Chef Antonio
Jul. 2019 • Couples
The food was absolutely delicious and Chef Antonio was knowledgeable and showed us several techniques for food and pasta prep. The space was very small and old fashioned but overall the class was still great because of the food. Highly recommend if you're not looking for something fancy, just a home cooked meal in a little Italian kitchen.

Home cooking Italian style
May 2019 • Couples
Had a great fun time learning how to make 3 kinds of pasta the tradition home cooking way, then our chef Irene cooked the pasta using ‘nonna’s’ recipes and we all enjoyed the 3 pasta’s served with local red and white wine.
This was all done in chef Irene’s family home, our only concern was her 5 year old daughter running around causing a distraction.
Still a great Italian experience.

Great little pasta making experience
Lovely night spent with Antonio making two different kinds of homemade pasta. He is a joy to spend the evening with- gregarious ,full of stories and excellent cooking tips.
Not sure why the picture is of a young couple when he it is actually run by Antonio himself who claims to be an accomplished chef.
Kitchen was older, small and unassuming in an apartment house in Bologna. However, for a small crowd, it’s a fun and wine filled experience!

You will not leave hungry!

Home cooking class
The cooking class with Antonio was fun. The food was very nice.
But dont expect a fancy workshop. The kitchen is very old fashion, small and it could be a bit more cleaner. You dont do a lot of cooking yourself, besides preparing dough...chop vegtables and make the torteloni. Antonio does the cooking himself. Dont expect any professional cooking class...but I experienced it as eating at a local's house and I helped a little bit in the kitchen.Not sure if the money is worth the home cooking class. After all we had a fun night and good food. Thanks Antonio

A wonderful evening with a Antonio - a great chef to learn from
Feb. 2019
Antonio welcomed us in to the kitchen with a warm smile. He made us feel at home straight away. He is a well-travelled guy who has cooked all over the world and has lots of interesting stories.

We sampled a lovely pastry with cheese and prosciutto and Antonio showed us how to cook Ragu, fresh pasta, tortellini with some interesting flavors inside and fettuccine.

The wine lovely red wine flowed and we had a lovely desert.

A fun evening and now I know how to make some classic Italian dishes.

Check this out, you won't be disappointed.

Highlight of Bologna

What a fantastic Italian experience.
Chef Antonio was charming, an excellent cook, full of information and so hospitable and friendly.
It was an evening full of laughs, wonderful food and wine
On arrival we were given a tasting of a Parma and mozzarella pastry which was out of this world.
We were taught to make tagliatelle, ragu and tortellini.
This class made Bologna a highlight of Italy and gave us a "need" to return
Thank you teacher Antonio for being you - it was a never to be forgotten experience

The highlight of Bologna- and maybe even our Italy vacation!
Jul. 2018
This experience was everything I hoped it would be and more. Antonio is charming, intelligent, funny and beyond all an incredible chef. The evening had the atmosphere of dining at a close friend’s house with the added experience of learning how to cook some traditional and delicious Bolognesw cuisine - all while sharing a bottle of wine and lots of laughs. I would highly recommend this to any couple looking to share a traditional, less tourist evening while in Bologna. That being said, Antonio’s English was marvellous! Our only complaint is that our travel voucher did not indicate which floor of the apartment complex Antonio’s unit is in. This was quickly remedied by calling the tour company and was clearly not Antonio’s fault. Five out of five stars for a magical and satiating evening.
