Rome Walking Tour and Cooking Class
Reviewed by: Moh Kim Susan W, July 2014
The cooking class took place in a restaurant and I enjoyed it thoroughly as restaurant chef Fernando gave me lots of suggestions and alternative ingredients to use. The walking tour can be improved as we waited for the guide for more than 30 minutes. Despite this, the guide was very knowledgeable.

Boy did my mom and I luck out on this one. For some reason, we were the only two to sign up, so we got a private cooking class! I feel bad that I forgot his name, but the chef was just spectacular! He taught us how to make several different types of pasta and then they cooked our creations at the restaurant for us to eat! Plus, we were treated to two glasses of wine each and bread. The pasta dishes were the best we had the entire trip to Rome! I really cannot say enough about the experience!
Side note for the walking tour part - The Pantheon was a really interesting place to visit, but the Trevi Fountain is under construction....so you really can't see anything.

Had a great group of people to cook with, and our chef/teacher was awesome and very patient with me!! He spoke Italian, English, Spanish, and French so language is not barrier!
Not only did we cook a great lunch, everything that came out of the kitchen was beautiful. I came back for dinner during my vacation.
I would recommend this to everyone!

While the walking tour was average (the unexpected early June heat wave may have had something to do with it), the cooking class portion of this tour was just fantastic! Restaurant was extremely picturesque and our instructor truly loved teaching four of us how to make pasta! Class was held in a little side window alcove of the restaurant, and we wound up being great entertainment for the other lunch guests. Seriously great food as we got to eat everything we made - tortellini, fettucine and orrechiate! Great for those who have seen all of the major sights and want to try some different!

great fun, fantastic pasta meal after, our children aged 17, 15, 11 all thought this was excellent, Rome can be very tiring with all the walking, this made a welcome distraction. They told us the ingredients and I have cooked the pasta sauce at home a few times still just as good.

The walking tour was good and the guide was very knowledgeable, however the cooking class was the highlight of this tour. The owner, head chief and manager at That's Amore were extremely friendly and made the cooking class a lot of fun. Our meal was so good from the cooking class, that we actually went there two more times for dinner. Their food is very highly recommended.
