Obligatory activity in Naples. The central restaurant and luigi's attention the best. The first part is about making the pizza dough step by step with the ingredients. You realize how tame it is to make traditional pizza. After a delicious appetizer, you move on to creating pizza that you later eat. Hunger does not pass.

It was a fantastic experience!! Our host Brunella was such a great teacher and kind host. Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end: the organization, the class, the amazing view at the location and the dinner. Many many thanks to Brunella and her thoughtful teaching!

What an experience! Diego, Alesso & Paola were absolutely amazing and the food was unbelievable. My wife and I felt right at home and shared many laughs, small bites and glasses of wine everyone. I would highly recommend for everyone.
