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!

Rated 4.99 out of 5 from 78 reviews.

Rosetta is a wonderful, kind, and talented host. She really made me feel at home during the fun cooking class. She made the day even better by taking me through Villa D'este, and telling me about the villa and gardens. Do not miss this! Rosetta and Tivoli is absolutely amazing. Oh, and come hungry for some great pasta!

Rosetta is a wonderful cook and an even better host. She truly made us feel at home and taught her pasta techniques while having a laugh. Also, the tour of Vila d’Este is a highlight of the experience. Grazie Rosetta!

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.
