Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a beautiful full day tour of Tuscany with Stefania. We were picked up in the morning at our hotel and driven through the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. Stefania is so knowledgable about the region and the winemaking process and we learned so much from her. We stopped in Pienza where Stefania guided us through the main sights of the town. She really is a wealth of knowledge. We stopped along our drive to see some of the most scenic sites of the Val d'Orcia region. Our last stop was a beautiful vineyard for a Brunello tasting and lunch. This day was a highlight of the trip and we enjoyed Stefania's company throughout the day. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Tuscany and I would love to do another tour with her in the future.

My wife and I went on an anniversary trip to Italy and were referred to Toscana e Gusto by our travel agent. I cannot say enough good things about Stefania and Anna. They were patient, sincere, and showed a true passion for what they do. Being able to join them in their home for a day of cooking, learning, and great conversation was a privilege we don't take for granted.

The personal touch they put on our experience was a highlight of our 11 day tour of Italy, and we will not soon forget it.

We had the best cooking experience with Stefania and Anna in the kitchen. They were hospitable and funny. The courses we made and enjoyed paired with delicious wine were wonderful. The kitchen and dining area were lovely, and overlooked the garden where many of the herbs we cooked with were harvested. One of our best experiences in Italy. Highly recommend to all interested, you will love it.

We were seven people doing Tuscan cooking with Stefania and her team. It was a fantastic experience and our best day in Italy. We learnt to make lots of stuff the Tuscan way, and we loved the passion and the attention to detail. Three kinds of meats in the ragu, the right kind of flour for different use, how to cut the almonds (not too much) and so on. We had fun all the time. The result was a perfect meal - made by ourselves.

This class was the highlight of our visit to Tuscany! Anna and Stefania were so warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. We had such a fun time learning from them and chatting about all things Italian food/culture. The recipes were very well organized. The food was dynamite! This class was in Anna's home and felt very authentic and intimate.

Two of my friends and I spent over a week in Italy at the end of August and this day was our favorite. We opted for the pizza, pasta, and dessert menu. Stefania and Anna are lovely, hospitable, funny, and taught us so much about cooking and about Tuscan cuisine. The food and wine was delicious and made with care. We highly recommend this and would definitely go back next time we are in Tuscany. It truly felt like we were old friends and we'd love to have them in our kitchen and at our table all the time!

Just the best!
Ms' Stefania & Anna are so much fun and the nicest folks you could ever meet.
The class was fantastic. It's in Ms. Stefania's home, with lunch (that you cooked!) served in a beautiful conservatory off the kitchen.
The wines served with lunch were wonderful and the ladies were incredibly friendly hosts.
You can stop looking for other cooking classes. Just book with Ms. Stefania.
I promise you won't be disappointed.

We had an fantastic experience with Anna en Stefania! The learned us the art of making pasta and Cantuci. They are so lovely, nice and funny. If we come back to Cortona we’ll follow an other course without a doubt!

When we made those recipes at home we immediately felt in Toscane again!

A must to if you like Italian food.

Stefania and her team came to our holiday home and cooked us dinner. Fantastic local cuisine. Antipasto flatbreads, vegetables and cold cuts was a meal in itself. The pici all'aglione was amazing as was the accompanying Montepulciano Nobile! Beef tagliata followed which was perfectly cooked. Finally a perfect dessert..... chocolate and almond torta caprese with limoncello. The vegetarian options for my daughter were excellent with the Aubergine 'meatballs' in tomato sauce being the winner. Stefania shared her passion and knowledge for Tuscan cooking to complement the experience, even sending us a couple of the recipes to try at home. The kitchen was spotless when they left which was a great touch.
We were so impressed that she retunrned the following week so we could try a whole new menu.
If you're looking for a Tuscan home cooked meal then Tocana e Gusto is definitely a 5 Star experience. Will definitely book Stefania and her team when we are back in Tuscany and would try her cooking school as well.

We have just had the most amazing experience and time cooking with Stefania and Anna. It was a fabulous activity to do - learning and sharing in Italian cooking culture and what cooking means in Italy. Both ladies are fantastic tutors and made the experience an absolute delight - with plenty of conversation, tips of the trade and laughter throughout. We thoroughly recommend this to anyone who enjoys cooking and wants to experience homemade Italian culture. Thank you Stefania and Anna - kindest regards Paul & Shannon
