One of the top highlights of our Italy trip! Luigi personally picked us up from our hotel, after there was some miscommunication regarding pickup time and point. He was a blast to talk to and learn about his life. So authentic and energetic. The class was both informing and entertaining. We had a relatively small glass of 14, and I think that made it so much better. Luigi gave us personal instruction and help and showed us through every step. He was funny, knowledgeable and just overall an amazing host. He used to own a restaurant (Pizzeria) but decided this was more suited for family life. And slower. The pizza was DELICIOUS and cooked in under a minute! Luigi then drove us home and we got restaurant recommendations, life lessons and just overall a fun conversation. An absolute joy and would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for an authentic fun experience.

This is such a fun experience! To start it was very easy to get picked up at our hotel in Sorrento along with a few others in the class. The location is at a beautiful kitchen up above Sorrento. Our instructor was fun and funny while also being informative about the best way to make Neapolitan pizza from scratch. You get to make the dough from scratch and then make your pizza with sauce and whatever toppings you want. Finally it gets cooked in the stone oven and you get to enjoy with the small group. Wine is available throughout the class to enjoy.

We absolutely loved this class! We did the seafood option and it was one of the best meals we had in Sorrento. Unbelievably good! We also enjoyed tasting the Prosecco and many glasses of wine throughout the evening. 10/10 recommend this class! Would be especially fun for a group.

Fantastic experience. Host and owner was very friendly too. Would recommend this experience if you’re considering it. Pizza was delicious too!

We had a fun time. Very personal experience with family recipes.
