My boyfriend and I had so much fun learning to make pasta with Chef Luca! The space and environment he set up was fun, light hearted and full of laughs. He taught us to make a couple different dishes and all were excellent…one of the best pastas I’ve had in a long time! Chef Luca is very knowledgeable on the foods history and it was fun and interesting to learn about. We will definitely be coming back and bringing our friends!!

We had such a good time! Chef Luca made us feel so comfortable, we sampled a variety of dishes, practiced making pasta, had a great meal with an AMAZING homemade gelato dessert. We brought wine to enjoy with the meal as well. I absolutely recommend this class, great date night for out-of-towners like us!

What an amazing, unforgettable evening my beau and I had with Chef Luca for his Italian Seafood & Pasta dinner class! It was as though we had been transported to Parma, Italy itself! Every aspect of the class was meticulously planned out and incredibly easy to follow. Chef Luca was vibrant, passionate and incredibly charming.
We learned how to prepare fresh smoked salmon rolls with homemade ricotta (which is my new obsession), tagliatelle pasta with a lobster cream sauce and drunken scampi. For desert, we made the most delightful chocolate mousse with a tad of honey. Need I say more?
This class was more than a class, it was an experience of learning how to truly enjoy a meal, the Italian culture and its rich history and relationship with food. Chef Luca and his classes are an Atlanta treasure, conveniently tucked away in a Midtown loft. I look forward to returning and sharing this experience with family and friends. Bravo!

Chef Luca is incredibly talented! Not only does he know how to work a kitchen but he is as authentic as they come and passionate about sharing his love for Italy and for cooking with his clients! Chef Luca makes you feel at home in his home. You will learn how to make authentic Italian cuisine, but more importantly you will experience true human connection and leave feeling more confident in your ability to make cooking fun and simple. And if you love art, get ready because there is no one who knows art history better and his cooking space is also a unique art gallery (best kept secret in Atlanta).
