The host/chef was terrific! He offered us history, culture and his passion for cooking as we made our 2 different pastas with him. He turned it into the best lunch out in his garden with a glass of wine. We were very happy to have Paulo join us for desert as we got to chat some more. We are excited to go back to the states and make our own pasta!

The BEST Class in the MOST Beautiful Setting!

If you only do one activity in all of Italy, do this one! Such a wonderful experience from start to finish and I can’t say enough good things about our gracious host and teacher! He shared his love of cooking, wine and stories of his wonderful hotel Loveno (which was the most beautiful location for this class). When I come back, I will try his wine tasting class! This is sure to be a top travel memory for you!
Wonderful pasta making...
Victoria_W, July 2023
Wonderful pasta making class in Lake Como! Marianna was an expert in not only demonstrating how to make specific pasta, but was excellent when it came to also assisting us in making the pasta. Best part was eating the final creation at the end. Would recommend this class to everyone!
Pasta with Paolo is amazing
Brian_N, July 2023
We met Paolo at his hotel. There were a total of 5 people in the group. We were welcomed with cold water and Prosecco. After a short greeting, we got down to it and made two kinds of pasta ( Egg and water). It was a great experience in a wonderful setting. After the class, we sat down outside in a lovely garden to eat what we cooked. There was red and white wine, focaccia. There were two pasta dishes, one with pesto and one with bolognese. It was truly a wonderful and unforgettable time. Paolo and his family were very accommodating and friendly.
Great fun learning to make pasta!

Not sure how I forgot to provide a review of this absolutely fantastic experience. We arrived at we're met by the staff who are the sweetest hosts with great sense of humors. We took a taxi from Como, if you take the ferry you have arduous walk ahead of you but you'll make it. The entire party was American couples, some of you may roll your eyes at that, but it was great. Everyone there was nice, funny, motivated and ready to have fun. You make wo types of pasta and it's great. Once complete you have cocktails and wine in the garden, then your efforts are presented to you. After you smash the pasta its time for espresso and dessert. Overall a beautiful experience. 😍
Super fun class with hands on teaching!
Nancy_S, Oct 2022
Definitely a highlight of our trip. I took the class twice with different groups and both classes were fantastic! Paulo, our instructor was awesome, a great teacher plus very charming. After we made two types of pasta, we enjoyed our lunch outdoors in a beautiful setting. Everyone in both of my groups enjoyed the class - great value for a delightful afternoon!
Great food experience

Amazing experience
Vadim_G, July 2022
Amazing experience, the best we had in Italy. Knowledgeable, attentive host. Cooking class conducted in the room with the best view of the lake. Highly recommended!
Favorite night of our trip!!!
Andrea_S, June 2022
This was one of the highlights of our trip!! The views were incredible and the experience and pasta were equally amazing!! Paolo (owner of the hotel, chef and sommelier) was truly the most wonderful to spend time with and we feel like we learned something we can take home with us. We loved the night so much we wanted to go back a 2nd time! Can’t miss this!
A must-do experience!
Brandi_J, June 2022
We were in Italy for nine days and our entire family agreed that this day was the best day! Paulo could not have been more hospitable … We learned a lot and had the most delightful afternoon. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Great pasta making experience!!
Christine_P, Apr 2022
We had the best time with Paolo who taught us how to make tagliatelle and orecchiette pasta! The staff put in so much effort to make our night special and even had one member take photos and videos of the entire class! Special thanks to everyone for the most delicious pasta served (as one of our members who attended the class says is the best pasta she has eaten in her 20 years of life haha) and the best time!
Wonderful Experience...
Shannon T, Sept 2019
My wife and two friends of ours had the pleasure of taking this wonderful cooking class with Paolo and Sara in Menaggio. They made us feel so welcome and at home right away by making us delicious cappuccinos upon arrival. The class itself was very fun and educational, Paolo know so much about authentic Italian cooking and shares his mother's techniques, and his, while teaching you to make two different types of pasta. The class ended with us all enjoying our home-cooked meal together, sharing good conversation, mouth watering pasta all while admiring the gorgeous Lake Como view. Paolo's own Basil Pesto sauce was the best we all had ever tasted. I highly recommend you book this Italian cooking class with Sara and Paolo.
Response from Host, Oct 2019
