Lorenzo was waiting for us at the agreed meeting point, it was then a short walk to his home. We had a lovely relaxing evening cooking with Lorenzo in his kitchen. We made 3 courses - the food was beautiful in its simplicity, a delicious meal was created under Lorenzo’s patient guidance. Our girls (12&14) really enjoyed the process, they especially loved making pasta. None of us have ever been fans of aubergines but wow the way Lorenzo cooks & serves them was a revelation! Lorenzo was a generous host on all fronts, it was a pleasure for us as a family to meet him & spend time with him 😊

Booked this cooking class for my wife and daughter. It was an 11 o'clock class with lunch and Lorenzo was an absolute joy to work with. Not only did they prepare 3 exceptional dishes in Lorenzo's wonderful kitchen, he also went into technical details with them and shared lots of tips and tricks. We'll book this class again next time we visit Venice.

Lorenzo met us on time and it was a short walk to his home. He made us feel very welcome and allowed us lots of opportunities to cook. We were able to choose our menu from a range of options. He spoke very good English and set a lovely table, complete with Prosecco and a crostini starter. We enjoyed learning how to make tortellini and traditional Venetian biscuits as well as a delicious mushroom risotto. A very lovely evening.

We signed up for this "cooking class" a month ago. The day before the class was supposed to happen they changed the meeting address to something that didn't exist. After a ride by water taxi and 1.5 hours of looking for the address with GPS down Venice back streets we found the street but the address provided didn't exist. Total waste of vacation time and money. All attempts at communication failed until AFTER the time the class was supposed to have occurred. Then we were told they would have to "investigate" to see if it was possible to refund the $216 paid to attend the class. DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS VENDOR! They misrepresent what they say they will do. FALSE ADVERTISING, TOTAL SCAM. We're still waiting to receive our refund. We'll be filing a complaint with TripAdvisor and contacting the credit card company used to book the class.

Good morning, we are sorry to read such a review, but every criticism is good to improve ourselves. We regret that you didn't enjoy our cooking class, however, we strongly reject your comment; first of all, we sent you an email through TripAdvisor Experience with the precise meeting place and time (with the google maps link). Second of all, we sent also a text (to the mobile phone provided through the booking) with the precise directions. We have been waiting for half an hour and try to call you several times with no answer at all. Unfortunately, we did not have other contacts of yours, so for us, it is a No Show. Best Regards, The Curioseety Team

My wife and I took the class with Lorenzo. We went to his home and worked in his kitchen. He gave us a choice of menu items and we selected: home made pasta Bolognese, polenta with fresh mushrooms, and tiramisu.

We prepared the meal with his assistance. He did a great job showing us the basics and then left it to us (with supervision) to execute the plan. And then of course we got to eat -- with a nice glass of wine. The food was fantastic! Everything was amazing. And the recipes were simple so we will be able to replicate them at home. It was also a treat to have the class in his house and talk to him about Venetian life and exchange ideas about where to stay/what to do on his upcoming US vacation.

I highly recommend this class. It was fun and the food was amazing. It was also a great way to get away from the tourist crowds for a few hours.

My Wife and I booked this trip In January. Since then all she has talked about is cooking with a local. So a few days ago I found this great opportunity to fulfill her wishes. Lorenzo was so nice and hospitable, he chose dishes that were easy but authentic and delicious. He takes the time to teach you how to cook each dish and also gives you a step by step recipe sheet to take home. His wine is extremely delicious. Lorenzo and his family have lived in Venice their whole lives. If you’re looking for an authentic Italian Chief to cook with, Lorenzo is your guy.

It made our Venice trip one of the best ever! We had one other couple join us for an afternoon of making pasta from scratch, learning the trick for the best tomato sauce (they use cherry tomato sauce) and had plenty & plenty of delicious Italian wine. We could have gone to a nice restaurant for the same price, but experiencing "hand-on" with our Chef in his house was amazing!

A wonderful experience in a lovely location with a very kind host. We felt most welcome in his home. We made pasta and tiramisu, and he also prepared appetizer and a second course for us. It was a very enjoyable evening.
