Learn How To Make Pasta In Italy
Feel like a local as an Italian chef welcomes you to a private loft, teaching you how to make pasta from scratch - while sampling wines and starters depending on the season. Then enjoy the meal you cooked on the rooftop terrace. With small groups of only 14 people or fewer (and a few glasses of wine) it's like a meal with friends than a traditional cooking class. The most fun, authentic and hands-on way to dine in Rome.
