Did not learn anything
Andrei_T
, Jun 2022
Unfortunately not what we have expected, you will not learn much. The whole cooking we did was chopping some vegetables and mixing dough, no information was given about the cooking process, the quantities, or anything else. At the end we did not even get the recipes of what we „cooked“. The chef and Assistent we’re doing most of the cooking without much explanation of what was happening. If you really want to learn something, this is not the course, if you want cute activity to say you cooked pasta in Italy then is ok.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Andrei, we are very sorry to read this and we apologize if you didn't like your experience or found it useful. We have to admit it comes a little bit as a surprise because our Cooking Lesson activity is always reviewed very well and our guests are enthusiastic about it. Of course it is subjective and we don't doubt your words. Let us conduct an internal audit or a closer scrutiny to know who was the chef in charge that day and what he/she has to say about it. We're sure you can give us another chance and we'll make it up to you. Best regards, Gray Line Rome Feedbacks Team

Great food, not my favorite format

Really incredible food with an exceptionally talented chef. A few things though for negatives that prevented a 5 star review. First the chef was pretty late and I didn’t get any notice from the company, second he really was on his phone for probably 45 minutes to 1 hour of the three hour experience, and lastly there was a lot of different dishes that we made so the cooking was a bit hectic. Since we made so much there was not much instruction, and instead a lot of “chef points and you do X” which is fine, but I would have preferred to make less and learn more.

This class was so much fun for everyone their weather you could cook or not. Nicoletta was great she and her helper went over everything . Were always by if you needed help or just didn't want to do it. I learned so much about making pasta and cooking in general. I had the best time in this class and the food we made was great much better then I make at home. I would serously recomend to do this class with her if you are in Rome. It was worth the time.

Don’t bother

When we signed up for the class it said a maximum of eight and we had 12 people in our class. It was so crowded and so many people that half the time we did not know what they were doing or how to do it You spend a lot of time standing around and really did not get to cook anything. There was not enough room at the Counter for everyone. I felt like they were just trying to maximize their profits and didn’t care at all about the quality of the class. Half the time we could not hear or see what they were doing and the people running it did not seem to care. I felt like it was all about making the most money possible they cramming us all in there. We had taken the same class two years earlier and it was outstanding. This time it was absolutely the worst and a waste of a day in room! I would never recommend this particular class to anyone. I’m quite sure 2/3 of the class was extremely unhappy with the entire experience. we spent most of her time standing around with nothing to do and even when we sat down to dinner they only had 11 places set so when poor person had to wait while they added an additional setting for them. I will say it again find a better class that cares about the experience not just making money!

What a fantastic way to experience Rome. Fortunately, yesterday, due to who knows what, we were a group of 3 only. Nicoleta and Roy taught us incredibly well and the food we produced together was of an exceptionally high stand. The wines were also brilliant. I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone. I will certain sign up for another experience with Fabio's chefs on a return trip to Rome. I will be trying my hand at some of these dishes in a couple of days and hope they will be of the same standard. Thanks again to Nicoleta and Roy.

We went to Rome a day before our Trafalgar Tour just to take part in this cooking class and were so glad we did. The stops at the various shops/markets were so interesting prior to the cooking portion of the class. The location of the class far exceeded my expectation with room for the group to gather and prepare the pasta. The chef and her assistant were friendly, professional and entertaining as well. Highly recommend!

This is a wonderful small type of activity to do in Rome. The cooking class was very fun, the food was great, and during our lunch time eating the results we had great conversations with the other participants. We felt like we made a whole new group of friends.
