Kelli_A, Jun 2023
Great afternoon with Carmen. She was so vibrant, funny, and explained everything. We learned so much! And enjoyed the Prosecco as well as the food
Chef Carmen is the BEST
Karen_C, Jun 2023
We had so much fun as a family! Chef Carmen was so entertaining and knowledgeable. My husband and I and our two adult age sons thoroughly enjoyed making gnocchi. Eggplant parm and tiramisu! This will always be a fond memory from our trip to Sorrento! This is not to be missed!
Very fun cooking class!
Maria_I, May 2023
My partner and I loved this class! We made gnocchi, homemade pasta, and a lemon tiramisu dish. We thought it was fun and informative, and liked that we had a small class - there were only two other people cooking with us. Carmen was personable and a great teacher. They also gave us Prosecco and kept the wine flowing. We had time at the end to eat what we made, and everything was delicious! We give it two thumbs up.
Wonderful experience- lots of food & wine
Carly_C, Apr 2023
We had the most amazing experience with chef Carmen. She had a great personality, knowledgeable cooking tips for us to take beyond the class, and served a generous amount of wine, liquor, and food! We loved the food and experience so much that we came the next night for dinner! If you don’t make it for a cooking class, I highly recommend dining here!!

Wonderful afternoon with Carmen and her staff. Truly learned how to make delicious homemade pasta, eggplant parmassan, and lemon cello Tiramasu. The wine flowed; laughter echoed; food delighted.
Best experience in Sorrento
Mike_w, Sep 2022
Absolutely loved this experience, 2 couples in our late 30’s. We all love food and cooking so wanted something local and authentic. Chef Carmen kept in contact all the way up to the class as we had to change dates. Everyone was made to feel included in the class no matter the experience or level of cooking. had wine/Prosecco/water on the tables and was offered beer or other soft drinks if you preferred we all just stuck to the wine and Prosecco. We made a pasta Ragu (made pasta ourselves), an eggplant parmigiana and a lemon cello tiramisu which was then served to us in the restaurant. Thankyou so much for this experience which all 4 of us remembered more fondly than anything else in the 7 days in Sorrento.
Brilliant, fun and definitely a must do!
Melanie_G, Sep 2022
We were not sure what to expect but had the best time. We cooked, we drank (lots) we made friends from all over the world and we laughed. Definitely a must do experience. Carmen and her staff work hard and make sure everyone has a great time.
Not to be missed !

We loved our cooking class with Chef Carmen! She was very entertaining and the class was easy to follow. Can’t wait to try everything we learned in class at home! We loved all the prosecco, wine, and beer included in the price as well!
Anyone will truly enjoy this class!!!
Gabrielle_P, Jul 2022
Carmen was incredible! She was so warm and funny. I can be quiet especially in a group, but I didn’t feel uncomfortable and the Prosecco definitely helped! The direction was so clear and the food was 10/10. Can’t wait to make the recipes at home.
Must do activity!
Nicole_R, Jul 2022
This class was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious, we learned so much. I can’t wait to make pasta at home. Chef Carmen was so fun, personable, and gave us little lesson on the Italian language. Seriously my sister and I had a fabulous time and could not recommend it enough.

Pritesh_P, Feb 2022
Arrived at the time was told.viator.made a mistake even though she messaged me on WhatsApp to confirm. Either forgot or double booked. Anyway wasted our day, but found another better cooking school.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Hi dear i apopogize again but i was jo answering personally as i told tou the girl working for me did. Sorry really
A memorable experience for couples
Lauren, Oct 2021
my husband and I really enjoyed this experience. Chef Carmen Wes accommodating to everyone in our group allergies, dislikes when considering the menu. The menu for us was homemade ravioli, fish with a potato crust, and lemon tiramisu. They tiramisu was initially going to be made with lemon cello; however, I requested a non-alcoholic tiramisu. Chef Carmen assisted me first in making my lemon tiramisu without the lemon cello then resumed making the groups mixture with the lemon cello. Again, she was so accommodating. Everything was seamless, the classroom has plenty of work space and is very clean. I would highly recommend this experience even if you have no cooking background. She’s the best!
