"I simply cannot tell you again how we had the most AMAZING time, thanks to you, in Italy!! Every single detail that you arranged was flawlessly executed, from the drivers that we had, to the classes that we took. We had a BALL!!!!!
We headed Monday for our pizza lesson to the garden of of our teacher and host. She is a fantastic woman, a true Italian mamma. It was MAGNIFICENT!!! Not only did we immediately feel at home but she was a MASTER, as well as being so lovely, really funny and just adorable. She taught us, hands on, for almost 4 hours!!! At the end, we had made three kinds of pizza (dough from scratch) including white pizza with sausage, traditional margarita, and a third with tomato and prosciutto and arugula. Then we prepared bruschetta (learned how to choose tomatoes properly), made melon wrapped with ham and caprese salad.
As if that wasn't enough, we learned how to make two kinds of calzones with Italian ham and ricotta and another with just mozzarella and basil...all from scratch!!! And we did so much ourselves!!! And then (gosh it never ended....) we made mozzarella en carozza, pesto and finally tiramisu. So crazy delicious. Then we sat under the stars in the garden with her family and ate....and ate..and ate...with wine and laughs! It was one of my favorite nights of my life to watch my 17 year old nephew, Tom and my husband Andrew eat and laugh and eat and laugh and eat!" - P. Ryan, NYC
"I just wanted to thank you so much for this fabulous pizza class!!! The whole family was awesome and it was really the highlight of our trip! We will definitely recommend this class to everyone!! Thanks again!!"
~ J. Shapiro, Pennsylvania
"We enjoyed our entire trip and wish we could have stayed forever!! I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know!! Later today I will be more than happy to write a fabulous review on Trip Advisor for Ciao Laura Culinary Vacations! I loved the fact that we were able to find a class at the last minute with you, and one that was so wonderful. It was like we had planned this for months! Thanks again!" Best, Jody S.
"Your cooking instructor was not only very informative but she was enjoyable to spend time with, as was her family. It was difficult to say goodbye. Needless to say, we learned much more than simply how to make pizza. We learned a lot about Sorrentine culture too. They treated us like family and we can't say enough good about them. Jess and I both commented that we would have paid much more for the class had we known how enjoyable it would be!
We will certainly be referring friends your way and plan to visit again in the future also."- J & J Amato, USA
"Please relay our many thanks to our cooking instructor for what has become the highlight of our trip. She is truly a gem."
"Just a quick note to say thank you again for booking this last minute. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the pizza making class. We recommended your site and this experience in particular to several people we met in our travels. It was a wonderful evening."
~ J Norton, USA
"This is overdue but I wanted to thank you for the arrangements you made for our Italian vacation last Fall.
Our pizza making lesson in Sorrento was a highlight for us. From the moment we met them, we were enchanted. This was the true Italian love of food and cooking that we had heard and read so much about. As a pizza lover my whole life, making it from scratch in Italy with her is something I will always remember. Of course there was also the Lemoncello, cake, eggplant, wine, antipasto and that pizza!!! What an evening that was!"
I would highly recommend CiaoLaura to anyone planning a trip to Italy."
~ Many thanks, L Macpherson
"I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing itinerary you put together for us. We had an AMAZING fun packed day in Sorrento.
It was nice not having to worry about any of the details. It was flawless. I think the Pizza class was one of our highlights during our entire stay. She was an amazing host, I cannot say enough about her and her sister and her nephew Ernesto. We felt like we were there for a family gathering. She went above and beyond to please us. By the end of the night, I did feel like we were family and I did not want to leave.
Thank you again for setting everything up. I will and have already recommended your website to some of our traveling friends."
~ K Primm, New Jersey

"I just wanted to write and tell you how terrific our class was. The hosts were both so welcoming, adorable and knowledgeable. We had such fun cooking and, of course, eating! It was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy."
- E. Siegel, New York
Just got back from Italy yesterday and the cooking lesson was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend them to your clients, they were warm, accommodating, and the greatest hosts we could ask for! I might also add that you could enter a little section on their page regarding that they offer great accommodations to go along with their cooking classes, although we didn't stay there it looked wonderful! Thanks again for your assistance.

- K Nowack
Thank you so very much for setting up our cooking classes. We were very, very pleased with the classes and our accommodations in Sorrento and Amalfi Coast. We had a great time cooking at all our classes and learned a lot. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family if they ever wish to experience a cooking vacation in Italy.
- Puentes Family
We as a group of eight were staying in Sorrento for one week. We decided to do the Pizza al Forno cooking class and it turn out to be the highlight of the week. We had a fun filled day learning all the trick of the trade. I am going to try and replicate the pizza at home. I would recommend anyone visiting in the area to do this cooking lesson.
