The location was a little hard to find definitely not a hotel pickup and we recommend you take an Uber to the class. However, our teacher was so welcoming and sweet though her english was so-so--- definitely a language barrier! We learned how to make pesto and pasta and both were fantastic! The lunch was great, served on the terrace with a beautiful sea view. The wine was refreshing and delicious and we loved the melon with port wine for dessert. Would have loved to learn how to make the focaccia she served, but we were overall very pleased with this cooking course! Great home cooking experience. We can't wait to make pasta and pesto in the US!

Our family of four went to the cooking class, aIong with 3 other ladies on May 25th, 2018. The advertisement for the class mentions he and she that his name is Chiara and that he has extensive cooking experience, but it was a female who led the class. If you can call it a class. We were VERY disappointed considering we didn't get a chance to cook things listed on the menu, except for the pasta we all got turns kneading the dough, making the pesto and to bread the anchovies. The menu mentions: 1 PANZANELLA, appetizer 2 main : trofiette pasta with pesto sauce 3 second : Chicken at the Genoese with roasted potatoes 4 dessert : Home made Yogurt Cake or canestrellini liguri di Pannarello 5 Authentic Moka Coffe. It also mentions that the house is in Nervi, which it wasn't. Not sure how we got so mislead. We were served focaccia which wasn't that fresh, and possibly boughten, pasta with pesto, fried anchovies which are very cheap and ample to buy at this time of year, according to the hostess, and boughten gelato. We did have some wine and an espresso. At a 106./person we were a family of 4, I would say that at a maximum, the meal would have cost 100. in total. The hostess was a very nice lady, but this cooking class was rip-off, and would not recommend anyone to take it.
