OmGoodness... sooooo much fun! We were not sure what was going on at first, as part of our group was late. After they arrived we started the magic. We could not believe how accommodating this resturant was. They were so friendly and treated like as family as they allowed us to use their resturant kitchen as our own. We made the pizza which was perfect... especially for the area we were visiting. You will not regret signing up for this! Pleanty of food, drinks, amazing views and an unforgettable time!!

Pizza plus pasta plus bread

Thus wasn’t just about making pizza. Making pasta was very interesting. And the bread we made was delicious! I was really interested in how to stretch the dough and learned that process. But don’t expect yo become an expert!

We were so lucky to find this gem of a tour! As a couple we turned up and were treated like royalty, the chef was so knowledgable and took us through all the different methods and ingredients for making sicilian bread, macaroni and pizza. After each prep you get to eat the dish with red and white wine, biscuits, cheeses - the list goes on! You get so much for the value of this tour and we loved every minute of it. Its been one of our favourite experiences so far and we cannot recommend enough!

Fantastic experience! We didn't only make pizza, but we also made macaroni and baked our own bread. Additionally, we were also offered appetizer, local salami and cheese, all with some nice wine. Eating all these amazing food plus our own bread, and macaroni, and pizza is a very tough challenge, but totally worth it. And when we thought we truly couldn't eat more, then came the final "attack": canolli and limoncello.:) Can't remember the last time we ate this much before... The only thing that matched the amount of food we ate was the amount of fun we had. I would definitely do it again. We also received the recipes in email, so we are looking forward to seeing whether we can create anything remotely as good as we made at this pizza baking class.

Four of us went to This class which turned out to be much more than pizza making. We made bread, pizza, pasta and several other Sicilian dishes. The class started with making bread with a break before starting on pasta, pizza and other dishes. We made dough from scratch, and prepared and put our own pizza in the oven. At the conclusion we sat down for a big lunch eating all we prepared. Luca and his chefs were very nice and helpful. Great class you won’t want to miss.

Terrific, this was one of the highlights of our two week trip. We made bread, pasta, and pizza. I thought they'd let us sprinkle a little cheese on the crust and call it a day, But that was not what we did. We started by making the crust, added the topping, used the wooden thingie peal? to put it in and take it out of the oven. We ate everything we made, plus cannoli and wine. It was a fun group, great instructors, and a very cute restaurant right in the center of town. After the class we were able to wander the town a little and stroll up to the Roman theatre. This was a very fun way to spend the morning I highly recommend it.

Our whole family had a great time during this activity at the Porta Messina Ristorante-Pizzeria. Everyone there was exceptionally friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our activity enjoyable. Advertised as a pizza-making class, we did much more than make pizza. They offer cooking classes and pizza-making classes and participants for both activities spent some time together making pasta and some other items as a warm-up. We then split off into our respective classes either the cooking class or pizza-making class. After the class, everyone regrouped to eat and celebrate. Everyone in our family received personalized master pizza-maker certificates at the end of the activity, much to my children's delight. Overall, it was a fun morning/early afternoon and I highly recommend it!

It starts with coffee and fruit. We then made macaroni and pizza dough from scratch. I really enjoyed being able to put my own ingredients on it. Also, the bakers pizza throwing display. White or red wine is served with the meal, along with still water and antipasto. We requested an email of the recipe but the owner only emailed us a thanks-for-coming email that did not have the recipe. Hence, 4 stars.

Not just pizza making, but a good morning of activity and food with my teenage niece and nephew. On arrival we were offered fresh fruit and coffee and our won aprons before starting to make bread rolls for the restaurant. Once these were out of the oven we had a platter of salami, proscuitto and cheese to go with the warm bread. Next we learnt how to make pasta dough and form macaroni using a thin stick. The waiters joined in telling us these were skills they had learnt from their grandmothers as small children. As soon as there was a great pile prepared we then went on to make pizza dough, select toppings and put them into the roaring hot oven Finally we had our pizzas and pasta for lunch. Fantastic class, great fun for young and old alike
