What a great pizza making class! We were picked up from our hotel and taken into the hills and to the cooking school where we were greeted with a glass of wine and a chance to meet the rest of the group. We were then introduced to Luigi who took us through the process of making the pizza, from the initial dough, to stretching it out and then adding the toppings before cooking. Everything was very relaxed and enjoyable and we all had a great time. The pizzas were excellent too which we got to sit and enjoy with the group sat around tables chatting. This is a great class to do if you're in the area, everything was set up for you and help was given so that everyone got to enjoy what they made. There was no touristy hard sell either, vying for tips etc which some classes I've done have been like. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

This was one of our favourite things to do in Sorrento! Luigi picked us up, along with a few others in the group, and brought us to a lovely school/restaurant in the hills. Our group of 8 were lovely and friendly, and Luigi really helped with a lovely easy-going, and fun atmosphere! The pizzas were amazing and we've been armed with the recipe to try out on our new Ooni - with lots of tips from Luigi! The wine and tiramisu were a lovely addition also! Would definitely recommend!

The girl teaching the class was amazing. Her instructions were clear and entertaining. The food we made was delicious.

Such fun - learned a lot from Luigi and ready to make pizza at home!! Some lovely wine and tiramisu to match as well

Great fun and also very informative. Great for small groups or families too.
