The Italian Experience (in-person)

We get you to knead, laugh and eat authentically.

We are not an Italian Restaurant. We want to let you feel in an authentic Italian kitchen with family and friends without leaving your house.

That’s the difference!

The kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. It’s where meals and memories are made, where families and friends gather, where traditions are born, and where stories are told and retold.

Discover the pleasure to make homemade Pasta with your loved ones, and learn tricks, tips, and techniques to make pasta from scratch. We engage kids and adults in this interactive hands-on experience using only the best ingredients imported from Italy or locally sourced.

We bring all the necessary to your place and we take care of the final clean-up.

Scroll down for details!

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Pick an appetizer, a pasta shape, a pairing sauce, and, if you like, an add-on and wine from our menu
  2. We come to your house will ALL the necessary to make you an authentic Italian meal in your kitchen
  3. Have fun while-u-learn: we teach you how to make your own pasta. Every single one of you will make your own portion of pasta!
  4. While you enjoy the appetizer included in the price, we make the sauce from scratch and we clean up.
  5. The pasta YOU made is ready! Buon appetito!

Please, note that we require masks for everyone ages 2 and older, regardless of vaccination status, while making pasta with us. It is not required while you eating.
