We hired Ciao Laura to cater in dinner for our party of 11. Chef Barbara came and was incredible. She made everything from scratch, served the food and cleaned up. And the food was delicious and Barbara was lovely. If you're looking for a relaxing night in in your villa, I highly recommend Ciao Laura.

Traveling with teens we tried to find some teen friendly activities and we are all so glad we found this class! It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Our class was with Veronica Clemente at her cooking studio in her Villa La Quericia in Impruneta not too far from Florence. Veronica was wonderful and we all learned... More

I found Ciao Laura after reading an issue of Food & Wine; they highlighted "bespoke wine tours" and though Ciao Laura was not mentioned, I found them as I researched options for our Italy trip. Laura was very responsive to inquiries and many, many follow up questions. She facilitated a wine tour for me and four others and invoiced us... More

This was a cicchetti (bar snacks) tour that concentrated on quality food and accompanying drinks (unlike so many many that are bar crawls). We met our guide Monica (who was absolutely lovely) and she took us to sample Venice's best gelato to start our tour. Venice is full of tourists but we saw parts of Venice where the locals ate...

It was a small group cooking course in a very lovely kitchen setting. Kids enjoyed themselves very much. Veronica was very friendly. We got useful tips. Menu wasn't complicated and this really inspires kids to try their learning at home. It would be perfect if every of us got the recipe sheets.

We had a private cooking class with Veronica in her Tuscan kitchen and my husband and I had a wonderful experience. Veronica was warm and friendly and happy to answer all of our questions. She had printed up recipes but was very flexible and changed one when she found out it was something I didn't particularly like. Everything was hands... More

A perfect family activity that nicely tied all the enjoyable things we experienced in Italy together. Good food, quality ingredients, scenery, wine, and togetherness. We organized the session 3 days in advance and experienced it the day before we left. Veronica, our chef had the patience of an angel and really geared the session to the four kids ages 6yrs...
