My wife and I took a trip to Italy in early June of 2018. We decided while we were there that we wanted to take a pasta Cooking class. We're glad we did and glad we chose Local Aromas. Beneddetta and her mother ran the class and they were awesome hosts and cooks. We will certainly go back if we're ever back in Rome. Oh and I should also mention that the view from the Cooking Class was amazing. You could see all of Rome!!

We are so thankful we booked this tour with Local Aromas because it was our favorite and most special experience of our Rome vacation! We felt as though we were invited to a friend’s home for lunch and this friend not only cooked for us, but shared wine, olive oils and also taught us how to make Tiramisu (yummmm) and delicious Roman pastas!! The setting is fantastic, the kitchen is inviting, the food is delicious and the staff is wonderful. You can feel their love of food and cooking from the beginning to the end. Our teenage daughters LOVED it!! We laughed, we learned, we ate and we felt so welcomed by Benny, Davide and Chef Angelo. We left with our hearts and our stomachs full of love for Roma!! Thank you Local Aromas for an unforgettable afternoon ❤️

This was so much fun. A unique and informative cooking class in an intimate setting with a stunning view of St. Peter's Basilica lit up at night. The instructor is a trained chef, sommelier, olive oil sommelier, very well rounded in the high end foodie world, and her mother, who helps with the class, is a delight. We were taught the proper technique for testing olive oil. You eat what you cook at the end of the night. This is as authentic as it gets, y'all, and this Texas gal had a ball! Highly recommend!!

Recently my sister and I had an awesome experience on Local Aromas' Gelato and Dessert Tasting Tour! Luca took us around Rome to places outside of the touristy areas we had already been to. He was very personable and allowed us to ask questions that helped us better understand the day to day life in that part of Italy. Oh, and of course the desserts were delicious! We stopped at five places and had a variety of pastries, as well as gelato. It was a great way to spend our last day in Rome. We would both highly recommend this tour!

Dear Jenna B,

We love reading that you and your sister enjoyed your Gelato and Dessert Tasting Tour with Luca! Difficult not to love all that deliciousness. Quality does pay right? Every venue was tested and hand picked, to offer the best experience possible! And they are all off the beaten path!

There is gelato and gelato as you learnt from your expert guide Luca..... and when you find our how to spot it, there is no going back! Luca is amazing and a real "foodie" expert. A 100% Roman with an insane passion for all that is Rome, including the food!


Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! We really appreciate it and we look forward to having you with us again soon!

Thank you,
