Reviews from my guests
Our day with Grazia was wonderful. We arrived to her apartment and her and her husband welcomed us with open arms. She was a fantastic teacher and now we can’t wait to try our new learned skills at home. At the end of cooking we all enjoyed the pasta dishes plus some surprise deserts and delicious Cuban treats! We would recommend to anyone. It was our first Airbnb experience, so hope future experiences are just as wonderful.
What a wonderful way to spend the day! I can’t recommend grazia enough. She is an amazing host with a wonderful manner and taught my boyfriend and I some essential cooking skills! It was a joy to share our meal with her in her lovely flat, full of family history! If you are looking for an authentic Italian cooking experience, free from the commercialisation of other ‘experiences’ then I suggest you take this class. She even printed a dedication to my partner in the book of cooking rules she left us with, which was a wonderful personal touch! Grazie grazia!!
This was my first Airbnb Experience and I had a lovely time. Because I visited Italy during the low season, I had a private pasta making session with Grazia. I got to learn at a comfortable pace, never feeling rushed for time, and it was absolutely delicious. Grazia is a natural teacher and truly wants to share her love of food, wellness, and Italy with guests. I recommend for anyone who enjoys cooking and wants to try authentic Emilia-Romagna region home cooking.
Highly recommend Grazia’s cooking class. She is such a nice person and host who was really good at teaching and explaining about pasta and the food we were preparing. I really enjoyed my morning cooking with Grazia and learned so much about how to make pasta. Highly recommend to everyone!
This cooking class with Grazia exceeded all expectations and was the absolute highlight of our trip! Grazia is such a lovely, warm person and made us feel so welcome in her home. She has a passion for teaching and connecting with people. I had previous experience making pasta but still learned a lot and feel much more confident now. Grazie mil, Grazia!!
This was the best way to end and begin a year. Grazia is an amazing host and wonderful person—and her husband too. A memory I will cherish forever.
Grazia was a wonderful host. She really enjoys teaching and tries to make the best experience possible. We highly recommend this cooking class in which we prepared real Italian food taught by a local. The atmosphere is very friendly and feels like home.
I barely have words for this magnificent experience. Grazia was the best host I could ever imagined. The class was exactly what I was
hoping for: familiar, traditional, original! I highly recommend it to all of you who want to learn how to cook like a REAL Bologna local.
Great experience! We loved learning about the culinary traditions of Italy, and getting to be part of a real Italian home. Grazia clearly enjoys what she does, opening her home and her knowledge.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EXPERIENCE!!!! I had the best time.
She taught me how to make two different fresh pastas and the dishes were delicious!!! She has everything you need and is very organized. Her and her husband are great hosts. They truly care about giving a great experience. The time flew by! We cooked and ate together. You will enjoy an appetizer, 2 pasta dishes, wine, tiramisu, coffee. It was a special day! Everything was perfect.
We had great conversation and I felt so comfortable. She knows what she is doing! BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE!!! 🙂
I want to give Grazia 6 Stars. EVERYONE that comes to Bologna should do this experience. My family of 5 had the most heartwarming, wonderful time learning to make pasta with Grazia. If you have a family that are looking to have some fun, learn, and enjoy a great meal, do this! I think you any child above 10 would have a blast.
I highly recommend this experience! My mother and I stayed in the city center of Bologna for a week and Grazia’s experience was our final activity before returning home. It was nice to get to walk to her place a see a bit more of the city. Once we got there she was delightful! Everything was set up wonderfully and she was very accommodating to our allergies and dietary restrictions. We learned a lot, had a great time chatting with her, and had a yummy meal. Nothing could be better! 🙂
Pasta making with Grazia was the most amazing experience that really rounded off our trip in Bologna. It was lovely hearing all the stories of where different pastas originated from and the Italian way of making their food. Meeting and spending time with Grazia during this experience is highly recommended. You will never want to buy pasta off the shop shelves after learning how to do it yourself! Thank you Grazia.

It was such a beautiful and fun way to spend our morning and afternoon with Grazie and learning how to make pasta and tortellini! I recommend this experience highly! What a joy to be invited into such a beautiful and warm home. After making our past we ate what we made along with Grazie’s special touches of delicious sauces for the pasta and tortellini, wine, appetizers (delicious! Mortadella spread). Grazie went above and beyond to create a beautiful, well laid out and informative environment. We walked away with VERY full bellies and a recipe book so we can try to recreate at our home. We loved our time with her and feel as if we have a new friend. Thank you Grazie! We hope you will visit us in the states and we will see you soon when we return. Beth and Emma
Grazia was the very best hostess we have ever had for any experience, EVER. She invites you into her home to teach you her
Feedback privato: Absolutely perfect from start to finish!
Our pasta making class with Grazia and her husband was truly a highlight of our time in Italy. We were warmly welcomed into their beautiful home and immediately felt a connection. They were so kind and helpful, and we had a great time learning how to make two different types of pasta! We also worked together to make appetizers and dessert, and enjoyed some delicious wine throughout the afternoon. This was one of the best meals we had on our entire trip! Their apartment is simply stunning: full of light and beautiful tile everywhere. We felt right at home.
The terrace where we enjoyed our lunch was absolutely delightful, and we didn’t feel rushed at all during the day. We left with a new appreciation for cuisine from Bologna, as well as a small guidebook from Grazia and a gift! I can’t say enough wonderful things about this experience, we left with huge smiles on our faces and feeling as though we had made some new friends!
