I planned a Pizza workshop for my friends, group of 6 and we had the best time ever!! We learned in a fun way how to make real italian pasta and real pizza dough. Each one was able to create his own pizza and put it in the oven. At the end we had a table full of our pizzas and pasta. In between we had bread, wine, coffee and even canoli for dessert.
We kept the aprons and left the restaurant with a huge smile.
The whole team, including the kitchen staff gave us a warm welcome, the instructions were clear, the food was simply amazing. Thank you team Porta Messina for a fun morning

Great couple of hours taking part in Italian cooking! See as it was during Covid-19, my partner and I were the only participants. We were greeted by Luca and offered coffee while they prepared the kitchen for us. We helped make bread, learnt how to make macaroni and of course, pizza! we had 2 breaks - and at each, we ate what we made and had a litre of house wine! The macaroni was made into '"pasta alla norma'' and it was my favourite dish of the course. They even emailed us the recipes after. I highly recommend doing this class, it's a cool way to experience with locals.

We arrived at 10:15 at Porta Messinai Pizzeria right on the junction. Luca the host gave a great welcome and provided a drink some strawberries, cherries and biscotti. We were given an apron which was a souvenir to be taken away. We then made some bread. Whilst that was baking we made macaroni. Once the bread was done we sat and ate that with some cheese , salami etc with a drink ( wine ,soft drinks). We made pizza dough and then made the pizzas from previously proved dough and placed them in the ovens. We then sat and had our pizzas s, the macaroni, and cannoli . we were given more drinks and lenoncello and coffee if we wanted it!! An enjoyable few hours. Thanks to Luca and his team and to Kim, Petr , Laura and Erik who were on the same course

Giovanni was an amazing teacher, his English was very good and he just loves food. He also taught us pasta making and bread making, which we never expect. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

The class itself was lots of fun. We loved making, and eating, our pizzas and would recommend. The problem was the poor- no, non-existent- communication. We started contacting Viator via the information listed 3 months early asking if we could do it this tour via cruise ship. No response to multiple requests. So we finally booked it a few days before hoping then we could get through. No response. We finally got information from the cruise ship indicating that the Porta Messina where we meet it not the same as the Porta Messina where we dock so tried to cancel but by then it was too late. Sooo, we went for it anyway. We got off the ship at 9:30 am, walked to the train station and bought a ticket for Taormina, after the 1 hour train ride (17 E) we took a taxi to the meeting point (15 E) turned on our phone (10 E) and called- finally receiving an answer that the restaurant Porta Messina was right there at the arch. We walked in at 11:40, having missed the pasta making but in plenty of time for the pizza class. Had a great time and an adventure to boot so a good day.

We went to this class to learn how to make pizza. We spent the first 1 1/2 hours having coffee and then making macaroni which is not what we wanted to do. Then we mixed up some pizza dough but this wasn't used to make our pizzas so we have no idea whether it was any good or not. They had some premade dough that we used and then all the toppings including the sauce was premade and ready for us. The pizza was good but the teaching was non-existent.

Hello Donna G, we are so sorry to read your review about the Pizza Making Class. We are actually very surprised since it is the first unsatisfactory review we have received considering that this season we have organized over a 1000 Pizza Making Classes. Regarding the maccaroni preparation, we thought that was a "plus", probably for you it was not. We hope for a next time! All the best, Guest Relations Manager SAT Group

Fun morning at Ristorante Porta Messina cooking pizza, bread and macaroni. Welcomed with few fresh fruit, biscotti and drinks. Enjoyed the morning of baking and lots of food. Learned a few things about how to improve on my pizza back in UK. The kids also learned a bit about cooking which will be useful to them and enjoyed the morning. Somewhat expensive for family of four but worth it with all the food you eat.

So easy to sign up. Went to Porta Messina at the appointed time and someone walked us to the pizzeria to start our class. We started off with coffee, some delicious biscotti and very tasty fresh strawberries. Then we proceeded to make bread, panini for the restaurant and hand made macaroni for Macaroni Norma. Then we took a little break and were served an appetizer of cheese, sun-dried tomatoes salami and wine.

Then started the pizza making. After preparing the dough we got to choose our toppings and put our pizza in the oven. While waiting for the pizzas to cook, the master pizza maker gave us a pizza throwing demonstration.

Once our pizzas were ready they added olive oil, basil, and oregano and we sat down and were also served bread, wine and a wonderful Macaroni Norma. The sauce was so good!! To complete the meal they brought us cannoli and lemoncielo. The cannoli was the best I have ever tasted!

All in all it was probably the highlight of my trip and our teacher Luca made the class fun and was very helpful.

My friend and I feel so lucky that we signed up for this class! The entire staff works to make you feel welcome, the class is organized and fun. In addition, breaks are built in to enjoy bread, cheese, wine and the new friends you’ll make. Luca was our instructor and he showed patience and humor. We culminated our class with a feast of the pizza and handmade noodles we created. The class was topped off by being able to take our aprons home. A definite winner for money well spent!
