It was an extraordinary moment of learning, of sharing. I went with my 11 year old daughter. Anna greeted us so warmly and we started by tasting some local specialties. Then we launched into the pasta and tiramisu. Anna shares her pleasure of cooking with so much love, with good products, patience and infinite kindness. She also adapted the recipes to my daughter's tastes. And we did all this while chatting, she made us absorb her culture and her love of Naples and its culture. We then had lunch together. It was wonderful, I highly recommend having this unique experience!

Great way to spend lunch in Napoli. Luigi is an amazing teacher and took the time to make sure we got our dough perfect and really knew how to take this new skill home with us! I highly recommend this experience!
