What you'll do

Rilassati e assapora il piacere della pasta fatta in casa

We'll make two different kind of pasta from scratch, only using our hands. Meanwhile, we'll prepare two different sauces, step by step, while drinking some good wine. We'll sit around my table to enjoy our hand made lunch. After eating we'll go for a walk to Villa d'Este, that is very close to my home, where we'll immerse into the history.

I've been making pasta with my grandfather, owner of a "trattoria" in Tivoli, since I was a young kid. I'm a friendly and polite person. I studied and worked abroad where I often go to see my foreign friends. Recently I've also been choosen as the main character of an international food youtube video as follows:

Where you'll be

Welcome to my house in the centre of Tivoli, just in front of the Castle and 500 meters from Villa d'Este. We are not far from Rome, and well connected to it by train. This town is full of history and Villa d'Este is a must to see!

Rosetta created a wonderful experience. She was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. She shared her passion for Val d Este and for cooking. She taught us how to make two types of pasta and sauces by hand. We felt like part of her family. I would highly recommend this experience.

This was by far one of the best experiences that my wife and I had. We were on a family trip with 2 little ones and Rosetta welcomed us in like family.

Truly an unforgettable experience! Rosetta is a great teacher and her class is very informative and fun!! She is very warm and welcoming and it felt as though we were learning in the comfort of our home. Rosetta was also very accomodating to my children. As an added bonus, it was nice being able to get just outside of Rome and learn about some of Tivoli's history on Rosetta's tour. I would highly recommend taking her class, you won't regret it!

We really enjoyed our day with Rosetta. We made the pasta, cooked it, and ate together. It felt as though we were making a meal with a friend. Her husband and son joined us to eat, which made the day even better. The tour of the Villa Estes gardens with its many fountains was a nice way to end the day.

If you are looking for an honest and true Italian family experience, look no further than Rosetta and her lovely family. My sister, mom, and I travelled in from Rome for our last day of our vacation to try cooking with Rosetta. We were greeted by Rosetta as if we'd known each other for years. We started with a nice coffee and wine (of course) and then got to work! We made fettuccine with ragu sauce and ricotta and spinach ravioli in a butter and sage sauce. We shared the absolutely delicious meal with her and her family and she was so kind to surprise my mom with a birthday cupcake and song! Afterwards we walked to Villa D'Este, but sadly did not get to visit as the fountains were closed due to repairs and heavy rain, but Rosetta walked us around town and showed us her favourite spots to eat and visit which was stunning in itself. We know we will definitely be back to visit Tivoli and experience all it has to offer. Overall the experience was incredible and just as if we were spending the day cooking with our family.
