I'm chef and pasta maker. My parents worked in their "pasta shop" for 40 years making pasta with passion. Five years ago, I opened my own pasta shop and I was very surprised to have been named among "the best 10 Pastificio in Rome".
I have also been reviewed on the prestigious " Il Gambero Rosso" guide from 2017.
I've been inspired by the "magical" pasta made by my grandmother when I was a child and I'm so proud to teach how to make this special pasta to everyone. Transmit all the love and passion of my family, today, represents my dream.

Je suis venu avec ma famille passer une semaine à Rome pour voir les tableaux de Carravaggio et découvrir la Rome Antique. Et finalement le moment le plus fabuleux a été l’expérience chez Emanuele la gentillesse d’Emanuele, la passion qui anime son métier nous a permis de passer un moment merveilleux en famille où nous avons appris à faire de véritable Paste maison. Manuele possède un grand sens pédagogique avec beaucoup d’humour et de sympathie. Nous reviendrons à Rome et nous réaliserons une nouvelle expérience. Ami voyageur n’hésite pas va chez Emanuele tu passeras un moment formidable!!!!

We had an amazing time with Emanuel. His passion for pasta was clear and he brought such a joyful energy to our time together. I figured we would be making pasta with a machine but he was such a good teacher he has all of us making multiple different shapes by hand! Thank you so much Emanuel!

Emanuele is an excellent teacher, and the pasta he shows you will be better than fancy restaurants you’ll go to. You’ll be able to use the skills and recipes every day

Great experience! The highlight of our trip to Rome. Our son Kristofer who will turn 4 in a month loved it as much as we did. Emanuele was the perfect teacher, the one Maria Montessori would be proud of. We learned a lot not only about pasta but about cooking overall and that the magic of great taste is based on simplicity and quality basics. Loved everything about this course. We highly recommend it to everyone and it doesn't matter how well you cook at home, with Emanuele you will feel like a masterchef.
