My husband and I attended his cooking school through the international cooking school. Lunch was based on "our efforts" but dinner was in his restaurant. If you're looking for a chef in a white hat and apron, you won't find it, nor a carved in stone menu. The setting is intimate, only 10 tables, very personalized service. Chef Claudio talks... More

Our group of 4 family members spent 4 days with Chef Claudio at Torre Guelfa in August. Our expectations for our stay were quite high as we had read very positive reviews. However it was an utter disappointment. The standard of accomodation fell far below what I would expect for the amount we paid and the overall shabby, neglected and... More

Sabrina picked us up at our hotel & entertained us on the drive to the country property. Everyone greeted us on our arrival, we spent a few hours making our dinner in the auxiliary kitchen & enjoyed the meal in an outdoor arboretum before our trip back to the hotel. How else to spend a day in Tuscany? There's nothing... More

Went to visit Chef Claudio with a large party. We could not figure out what to order - so Chef suggested one of everything! Fantastic plates to share - wine pairings were perfect. Wild Boar was my favorite by far. So very tender and the sauce - wow! Our experience took 4 hours to complete. We were exhausted but worth... More

Hungry, we decided to stop at this lovely piazza for lunch. It was wonderful. I had the most amazing salad but everything looked great.

We absolutely loved our stay at Torre Guelfa. Chef Claudio along with Sarbrina and Vanessa made everything so simple and enjoyable while we stayed (2 nights, but would have happily stayed a bit longer). The food was exceptional and we were pretty much continuously given something to eat or drink. Cooking classes with the chef were very useful and enjoyable,... More

Chef Claudio spent several hours with us for a cooking class during our honeymoon. He spent a few minutes determining our likes and preferences for food, then put together the menu. The cooking instruction was very hands on in his kitchen, not sitting in a classroom kitchen listening to lectures and watching demonstrations. The interaction and involvement were wonderful and...

Sabrina has a travel company. We used her for two weeks in Umbria and Tuscany. Everything was well planned. The company picked us up at the Rome airport, they then dropped us off so we could take a ship back to USA Claudio's cooking class was excellent

I went with a group of seven who were part of Singles Travel International. We were picked up at our hotel and went to Chef Claudio's home where his restaurant is located. It was the most incredible dining experience I've ever had. We had a seven course meal that was prepared to absolute perfection. I would totally recommend this to... More
