We had a brilliant time. My husband, eight year old daughter and I enjoyed our experience immensely. Luige has a very personable, humorous style about him. He balances providing thorough information which will help recreate your pizza at home with not getting bogged down in too much detail that we loose the fun of it (although I think he probably judged his audience here, if you are interested in this detail he would provide it). We made the dough, threw the dough and added the toppings, cooked and ate. He didn't hurry us to leave allowing a relaxed, sated group of people to enjoy good wine and soft drinks at our own pace in his restaurant (no extra charges). A superb day. We ALL highly recommend this experience.

This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. There is something about sipping fresh lemonade on a patio, surround by flowers and fruit trees, that sets you immediately at ease. Follow that up with more mozzarella samples than anyone should eat in a single sitting, and it's a recipe for an amazing day. You will feel one with the town and one with the world when you zip through the narrow streets with the Cheese Man on his "Ferrari," before going home with a belly full of pizza and many good memories.

Very fun and interesting pizza workshop. I can only recommend it. The pick-up at the hotel in Sorrento also worked out great. Thank you for the wonderful time.

Top class.... Luigi was fantastic, picked us up & dropped off to the hotel, very friendly, informative and fun. highly recommend

We didn't expect to have such a good time! Congratulations to all the staff. Absolutely recommended experience.
