Spaghetti Making and Spritz Class
I really enjoyed Sarah's class. Not only was she very personable, she also gave a really easy to follow demonstration, helpful tips and helped the entire class create something that had us in awe. Due to the timing of the class, I initially thought I'd need a snack beforehand- don't! We had more than ample servings of pizza ( and the pasta we made) that made the afternoon extra foodie.
I had such a great time- definitely looking forward to more from this venue!
Great experience and great instructor! You get make a dough to take home. Practice rolling out dough, top your pizza and eat it!
Amazing! Teacher was super lovely, everything was well prepared and flowed smoothly. Lesson was very memorable, had a beautiful experience with my partner and will come back again.
It was an amazing experience! We had a lot of fun, the teacher was more than great, really taught all the details needed and helped us all throughout the process. We had some pizza and wine and of course the paste that we all made. I would totally recommend this class and will certainly come back!
This was such fun and great value! The cocktail making history, process and principles were well explained and I learnt a lot. The teacher and other staff were just gorgeous, friendly and funny and knowledgeable. Snacks were AMAZING and very generous. I’d highly recommend this for a group of friends for a special celebration or just a fun day out.
Easy to do
Great value for money
We had a great time, Sarah was an excellent teacher and the food we prepared ended up being amazing. Awesome experience and highly recommended!
Sarah was our teacher and she was just absolutely amazing. She made the class entertaining and she is clearly knowledgable about pasta making! She was very informative, helpful and super friendly. Who knew making pasta was super easy! You just need some muscles to help you with the pasta rolling bit! Definitely great value for money and will definitely recommend friends to do this class!
Was an awesome afternoon adventure. Lisa (our teacher) did an excellent job of managing a large group of 23 people, who may have a had a few drinks before arrival.
Feedback from the group was that they all loved it, and the pizzas were to die for.
Highly recommended for all occasions. My group was a bucks party (men and women)
This class was great and would highly recommend it!
Teacher was very friendly and helpful
Venue was casual and relaxed. Really nice spot to have a cooking class. Great selection of ingredients for pizza toppings and nice spot to sit down and enjoy our cooked pizza with a drink. To finish off a shared Nutella pizza
Class was so much fun. Teacher was so engaging and fun. We had a blast. Was so easy to follow and I made one of the best pizza I ever had. Highly recommend it.
The teacher was amazing, class was so much fun and interesting and they were very generous with food. Highly recommended
Lovely, knowledgeable teacher. We learnt so much about making pizza; looking forward to being able to try it at home!
The first part of the class you learn how to mix the items to make the dough, with tips on how to ferment it, and multiple ways to cook it (not only as pizza, but calzone, focaccia, and more)!
The second part of the class they supply you with pre made dough so you can learn how to stretch it out. Again the teacher shows you multiple ways to do it, as well as how to recover from mistakes such as holes in the dough.
Would love to come back for some or th other classes on offer, such as mozzarella and pasta making!
Teacher is very professional, The class is absolutely fun! With cosy atmosphere, Lovely friends! And Yummy food! This course is worth for my money!
I loved every bit of psta making and eating:)) Sarah was excellent teacher, the staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was awesome and we ate as much as we want.
This class was one of the best experiences I’ve shared with my boyfriend since he arrived in Australia from the U.K. Our teacher Sarah made the class so enjoyable from the moment we got there until the class was over as she was so lovely, knowledgable and patient with all of the participants.
Not only was the class incredibly fun and informative but also absolutely delicious and exceeded both of our expectations!
I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who loves meeting new people, learning new skills and dining over the most divine pasta that you’ve made yourself and not to
mention wine as well!
Teacher wasreally great.
Food was great.
Really good location and good pace to everything.
Delicious good and drinks
Knockout Gnocchi Making Class
Sarah was absolutly amazing
This is my second class here and it is always a pleasure. I will be back for a third.
Great work team!
The class was great! My partner and I really enjoyed the class. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful. The food was great too! :)
Excellect teacher. Great value for money. Not only did I get all the skills to master pasta making I also received pizza, wine or soft drink & we ate our pasta together. Everyone mingled well.
Only recommendation is clearer instructions on the address as #1 is a site development a local pub had to show me where to go.
Highly recommended though.
So much fun! Teacher was passionate and knowledgeable and the restaurant was close during our class so we had the whole place to ourselves! Really fun way to spend a Saturday morning!
Fantastic way to spend a Saturday. The teacher did an excellent job of convincing us we were all capable of making excellent pizza
Amazing time. Such fun. Great anniversary gift. The teacher was amazing and met some other really nice couples
Pasta Masterclass - Sarah was very friendly & explained everything thoroughly as she demonstrated first. Excellent venue and set up with plenty of working space per person.
I did alright, the teacher helped me a lot when I couldn’t get it right. It was really helpful for actually learning to make the pizza from scratch. Everyone was also really supportive so I could look at the others if I was doing something wrong.
Well organised, helpful fun teacher , good equipment. The pasta recipe was basic and good for teaching a variety of types of pasta shapes and forms. It is great to have the pizza break with wine but I think that there should only be one opportunity at the end to eat the pasta and have wine.
Wonderful experience! Highly recommend the class. Our teacher, location, atmosphere, classmates and food were delightful!
Knockout Gnocchi Making Class

Great fun. Great food and lots of laughs. Heaps of good tips from the teacher also.
The teacher was great and an excellent sense of humor and made the whole daunting experience enjoyable
So much fun Learned a lot about how to make cocktails. Good food too! Would do it again!
Teacher and assistants were really friendly and gave interesting and concise backgrounds to the cocktails plus easy to follow instructions.
Delicious drinks and food (generous portions too).
Very enjoyable experience!
I booked this session for a Christmas celebration with a friend and we were blown away with how much fun we had. We got to make our own unique touches on our creations which was fantastic. We also made friends along the way, which saw us spending the entire afternoon with complete strangers turned friends! Would definitely recommend and participate in again. Super fun
Lisa was entertaining and a great teacher with handy tips for when at home. Definitely recommend and keen to try another class!
Great little class. Learned how to make pizza from scratch, complimentary margarita while our pizzas were in the oven. Would recommend.
Teacher was enthusiastic and really made this class a fun interactive experience. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to make some pizzas
Knockout Gnocchi Making Class
Workshop was fantastic! We had Ashley as our teacher and she was super friendly and helpful the whole time. The venue was great and Gnocchi turned out amazing! All the other staff that were there was also very cheerful and we had an absolute blast.
It was excellent, everyone really enjoyed themselves! The cocktails and venue was lovely, we will be back!
Our teacher was great and the class was very fun and hands on! Good value for money too with a pizza each plus some dessert and drinks, plus you take home some dough!
Very good value for money. Our teacher sarah was very knowledgeable. Overall a great experience
