Sam Lamberto Nov 2023

Teacher was excellent and loved the smaller group setting. Much more expertise and advice from the teacher.

Andrea Dell Nov 2023

I enjoyed myself on the whole but the class size was too big for my liking.

Glenn Williams Nov 2023

Anna made us all feel very comfortable. She obviously knows her stuff! I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make pasta and now would like to buy a pasta making machine and do more at home. Thank you for this great experience. Lovely restaurant and wonderful staff.

I had the best day ever during Ana Maria's pasta making class!
Whilst I've made my own pasta before, I picked up some great tips and tools that I've already tried out at home (and my family is happy!).
I would highly recommend this class to everyone who's interested in making their own pasta - I'm already looking at booking a gnocchi making class :-)

Megan Budek Sep 2023

Teacher was very knowledgeable. However as my fettuccini started to collapse after setting for so long, she just smooshed it into a ball and gave it to someone else to redo. Disappointed that I couldn’t redo it again for practice. Heads up to everyone that even though you get to eat the pasta at the end, it’s not just yours that you eat. They put all the pastas together that everyone made. This turned off some of the members of my group so they didn’t eat any.

Brooke Farmer Sep 2023

The pasta making experience and teacher were both great.
None of us felt comfortable eating Pasta which was made by a whole group of people we didn’t know - so our plates were left full and bellies empty. Would have been better if we were able to eat out own creations. Website also stated we would receive a pasta sauce to take home and venue said this is no longer the deal.

Lia Sep 2023

This class was terrific. Anna Maria is a passionate and experienced pasta maker who loved explaining both pasta techniques and the history and origins of everything we were taught. We made a range of different pasta including ravioli tortellini plus various pasta shapes and colour techniques.
I attended with a girlfriend and we both love the class even though we have previously made pasta there was something to learn. We later ate our pasta with some lovely sauces which were cooked for us and was delicious. There was even some fresh pasta packs to take home.
I would recommend this course and would certainly do it again with more friends.

The class was great, the teacher was lovely and made it very personalised. Delicious food too!

Koen Ruymaekers Aug 2023

I definitely recommend attending one of Ana's classes on how to make pasta.

The set-up is great: you're all around one big table where Ana explains how to make pasta. You then get to do it yourself on equipment provided.

In the end, Ana clocks your pasta with a nice sauce and you get to eat your own produce with a beautiful glass of wine, made on Ana's farm.

Money well spent on an enjoyable couple of hours.

Jake Herrett Aug 2023

We had such a great experience. The satisfaction of creating your own pasta and then enjoying it. Anna was lovely and enjoyed her passion and connection to the land and it’s produce both here and in her home area in Italy Heading home to play

The class itself was fun and knowledgeable. However, we paid for 3 tickets and after the class we only got 1 pasta to take home instead of 1 each and we also didn’t get our free sauce. Very disappointing and misleading!

Great idea. It was presented well with enough information to keep everybody engaged but not to much to take in. The food was fantastic. Really enjoyed it

Ok so this class was so much fun! Creating our own pasta from scratch and learning along the way on the many different types of pasta shapes, flavours and techniques! I’m glad I finally made a booking, what an experience!

The venue itself is presented classic, rustic and cottage like! Charming and truly beautiful :)

Was a really fun class done by the lovely Italian teacher at the restaurant :)
We learnt a lot about pasta, it's origin, and of course, how to make it.
It was super easy, and the end result was super yummy!
It was also paired with salad and wine.
I highly recommend this experience for anyone, my partner and I loved it.

Jennifer Chiplin May 2023

The teacher was welcoming and provided a perspective of Italian regions in relation to types of pasta. Very clear instructions and assistance provided. Lunch was great tasting the pasta in the restaurant. A great experience. I would recommend the class.

Incredible class! The restaurant itself looked so authentic. Our host was very knowledgeable, warm and friendly. She walked us through the history of her hometown and showed us a demonstration of how to make the pasta from scratch. We then got to have a turn at mixing, rolling, kneading and cutting shapes from our pasta dough. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our first pasta making experience. The food ended up tasting delicious! Looking forward to coming back here again!

It was a super wholesome experience, not only how to make pasta but the life and story of the place you're making it in and the extensive life experience the owner/teacher has. She was really inspiring that life can turn in many directions when it comes to a career. Making shapes and styles was great to know. I want to make more! The lunch afterwards was delicious!

I really enjoyed our pasta class today. Anna was wonderful and very informative and the lunch and a glass of wine was a great way to finish up.

Anna is an amazing teacher! We all had fun while making different tipe of pasta. Then at the end we all eat the pasta we make and drink a good glass of wine.
I highly recommend to take this fun cooking class.

Maya Ausset Dec 2022

Amazing class, amazing teacher.
It was great to hear about Anna's own and her restaurant history. So much fun and eating the pasta at the end with delicious sauces and Anna's organic wine made the experience so special.
Thank you so much!

The class was held in a great Italian restaurant and the teacher was knowledgeable, friendly and very supportive. We had fun and also learned how to make fettuccine and tortellini! Then they were cooked and we had a meal of the pasta we all made! Served with a glass of wine. We were also given a little goody-bag with some of their pasta and pasta sauce to take with us. Well worth the cost of the class. Thank you!

Delightful instructors and very enjoyable class. The making part of the class felt a little rushed, which was a shame only because we ate our pasta and finished our meals with plenty of time to spare (almost a whole hour early). Would have enjoyed a little on a quick and easy sauce or inside to the ravioli. Maybe next time? Nonetheless, I would take this class again with friends for a very pleasant and delicious activity! Thank you.

Anna was an amazing teacher and provided a wonderful experience. The setting was intimate and allowed us to learn and ask plenty of questions. Anna has a wealth of knowledge and she was more than happy to share that knowledge. The food was amazing but, more importantly, the skills learnt will serve us for years to come. Definitely a worthwhile experience!

Class was fantastic, so much fun. All materials provided. I am booked in to do another class here. Fabulous.
Please note that Fabio can be hard to hear at times (I had this issue, but it might just be me)

Gaurav Warudi Dec 2020

The class is really good value for money. Anna and Fabio were great teachers, hands-on and clearly passionate about making pasta. We were taught to hand-roll and make two types of pastas. And later the chefs whipped up a great lunch with the pastas we had made. A really fun way to spend a Saturday arvo with friends or your partner!
