Great experience and super host in Rita. Thoroughly enjoyed learning how to cook real Tuscan food - the huge pizza oven is an experience not to be missed. Rita ensured we saw interesting places in the vicinity and the bonus was a wine tasting event on the coast with Alex followed by the most delicious ice cream ever!

We went to La Mezza Luna on a whim, to see some of Northern Tuscany but mainly to enjoy learning about Tuscan cooking. From the moment Rita met us at the airport to when she and her partner Alex took us back a week later we felt as if we were being looked after by friends. On our first night...

We were instructed in hands-on preparation of bruschetta, farro soup, 4 freshly made pastas and sauces (ravioli in butter & sage sauce, tagliatelle with ragu, flat Tuscan maccheroni with salsiccia sauce, and spaghetti pomodoro), and tiramisu.

Stayed here for 5 nights and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food served at the restaurant. A bit out of the way from the tourist trail but quieter too. Would definitely recommend for a short break
