Cooking with Daniella and Gianni was an absolute treat! They welcomed us into their home with open arms and made is feel like it was our own. We learnt how to make the most amazing gnocchi and tiramisu and used local produce from their back garden. I would 100% recommend this experience to anyone out there looking for a unique italian cooking class

Our cooking experience was hosted at the home of Daniela and Gianni. We didn’t really know what to expect when walking in to this experience, but our expectations were succeeded. Daniela absolutely spoilt us with the amount of food she prepared for us during the experience. We had so much fun learning to make gnocchi and tiramisu, while drinking Daniela’s delicious homemade vino and limoncello. We felt so welcomed and was definitely the highlight of our stay in Cinque Terre. Grazie!!

Book it! Daniela and Irene we’re amazing to work with. Very responsive! Daniela personalized a gluten free Italian cooking experience for me, which I didn’t think possible. She shared her great cooking secrets and techniques, which we hope to use very soon! We had such a fun and pleasant time learning and getting to know Daniela and her husband Johnny.

I had a very lovely night with Daniela, and her husband. I felt like I was part of an Italian family making a nice dinner for the night. Daniela is very pleasant and warm and I felt very welcomed and cared for. It was interesting to learn about the specific foods of the region and how to make them. I really appreciated this experience.

Wow. Daniela served us wine she made personally, porcini mushrooms she had foraged, handmade focaccia with rosemary from her garden. We made ravioli and tagliatelle on her grandmother’s pasta board with her mother’s pasta machine. We felt we had instantly gained an Italian Mom and a five star chef friend. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I’m already trying to figure out how to return.

What an AMAZING experience with them! They were the kindest, gentlest people who loved cooking and sharing that with us. My son and I together had a lifetime memory all created by their genuine heart and desire to share their cooking knowledge with us on the Italian foods they taught us. Then the eating post cooking was amazing as they shared more of their story... it was all magical with being around Christmas as well (Dec. 24th). I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND this experience but most of all the experience with this family... They forever touched our lives; Daniela and Gianni! God bless them!
