Great experience

It was a great experience. Especially learning how to make pasta properly was amazing. Would definitely do it again.
Amazing day

Very nice hosts and learned some life skills in pasta making and tiramisu. You get a nice booklet to take the recipes home with you which is a great touch

We spent four hours with Sylvia making pasta and tiramisu. She was a patient instructor as we chopped, rolled, filled and shaped pasta. We had a great group of 8 working together. It was the best day on our trip to the lakes. The location was an hour from Como.
Great experience.

Outstanding experience. Great fun, great food, great people. Must do this! Sylvia was the best along with her master chef!
Absolutely lovely time cooking in Lake Como.

I had a wonderful time cooking with the expert Italian chef during this cooking class. It is absolutely worth doing and when you realize what you get, it is worth every penny. We made tiramisu, ravioli, tortellini, and a noodle pasta. Then you eat everything at the end! It was a wonderful opportunity to meet other travelers and develop a new skill. Highly recommend this activity and Lake Como Food Tours for hosting it. Thank you so much!

It was fantastic. Everyone was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We had to young children 3 and 5 years old. She went out of her way to make this a fun experience for our grand-kids. The class was great and we learned a lot. The lunch following with what we made was also fun.
Great day had by all

Our partner and I did this cooking class and it was wonderful. We learnt how to make pasta and turn it into tagliatelle and ravioli in addition to learning how to make tiramisu. Sylvia was very friendly and approachable and overall the time flew by. Would definitely recommend
Great value!

Sylvia was so fun and generous! Started with a coffee while we waited for the others to arrive at their cafe. Cooking school was set up well! Made pasta, 2 kinds of ravioli and a great sauce and desert. Then got to enjoy the meal we made in their outside cafe seating. A lively day!

The ravioli we made was the best pasta I had in my 10 days in Italy, and I feel very confident that I can recreate this at home! The kitchen was very cute, and Sylvia was so hospitable! An easy train ride from Varenna.

Initially, we were worried about spending 4 hours on this activity, but the time flew by, and before we were ready, it was over. Starting with a relaxing coffee, we loved our session. The instruction was fun and easy, Sylvia and her family were lovely, our food was spectacular, and we cant wait to cook again once we return home. We were ready to come back for another class before we even left her studio. Highly recommended!
