I started Cook with Luca because I wanted to teach people how to make amazing traditional Italian soul food from scratch.

The aim of my online classes is that you enjoy yourself and other's company, share ideas and cooking tips and enjoy a glass of wine with a delicious meal.

My public classes are also an opportunity to learn new skills, acquire more knowledge about Italian culture, socialise with like-minded foodies and ultimately start to feel confident in the kitchen when inviting friends and family over for a meal!

Awesome class with Luca. He was super friendly and chatty and we had the best afternoon! Fabulous to have Tom (a sommelier) there too! Lots of food and cava - it was really great.

Samuel Feb 2024


We loved our afternoon with Luca! Really fun and relaxed class with three other couples. Luca did a great job explaining each step of the process. The end result was delicious! We were also lucky enough to have Tom to talk us through lots of different types of cava (and enjoy lots of it!). Such an enjoyable afternoon - thank you Luca!

Valentina Sangion Feb 2024


I bought this class as present for my boyfriend and we both really enjoyed it! Ravioli dish was really easy to make and the general vibe was great. As an extra we had a sommelier so we learned something we were not expecting to do. Overall I loved the experience, Luca is a great host and chef!

Shannon Horn Jan 2024


Such a fun night! The pasta making was really fun and the food was delicious. Thank you Luca for being an amazing host! xx

Jose Luis Rodriguez Olveira Jan 2024


I had a fantastic experience. I learned to make ravioli which had been something I really wanted to know. Luca was AMAZING, approachable, funny and made us feel comfortable from the start I will recommend this workshop to everyone The venue was perfect as well.

Becca Dec 2023


We had a really enjoyable and special evening. It’s important to be aware: this isn’t your typical cooking class. It’s more like a dinner party where you get to meet and talk to new people, and learn a bit about pasta-making along the way. If you go in with that mindset, then you’ll have an amazing time. Luca is great at putting people at ease and getting the conversation started, and the food was delicious.

Naomi Hook Dec 2023


We had such a good evening, so much fun and Luca is such a brilliant host. Would highly recommend and the pasta was incredible

Rosa Tully Dec 2023


Very good course - learnt lots and Luca is very nice - would recommend if you are looking for a pasta course

Clara Priou Dec 2023


We had such a great evening with Luca! He is a wonderfully warm, funny and knowledgeable host! The pasta was delicious and the group had such a good synergy, we felt like we were at a friend's house! The intimate setting is perfect to learn, share and laugh loads! Will definitely go back to learn how to make raviolis! Thank you again to Luca, could not have had a better time!

Elina Khaimova Dec 2023


What an amazing experience! It was a small group of people - nice intimate environment. Luca was passionately showing us how to make pasta and we learned a lot as well! The taste was fantastic I had the best time and would definitely do another course with Luca!

Laurene Dec 2023


That class was simply amazing, Luca made it very easy and we had a great night! The wine tasting was great but the highlight was truly the pasta - fun activity to do as a team, and the result was beyond expectations, pasta with pork ragu was absolutely delicious !
Can’t recommend this class enough, thank you so much Luca !

Anna Pietrangeli Nov 2023


I had the best Saturday morning! The whole experience was great, Luca was very considerate of my dietary restrictions and attentive to detail. The quality of the wine and all ingredients was excellent, I was surprised with how good the final result was :) I definitely recommend this class.

Sara Revell Nov 2023


I can't recommend this class enough. Luca is a brilliant teacher, very warm and funny and made the evening such an enjoyable experience. It was very intimate (there were 8 of us in all) but relaxed. It's nice that learning to make the tagliatelle wasn't too complicated and the sauce and canapes that Luca made for us were all delicious.

Maya Nov 2023


Absolutely amazing Saturday afternoon. We learned how to make ravioli from scratch with a great selection of wines and nibbles in meantime. Luca was a fabulous host. We had a great time. We love it and we will be back for more.

Had the best time ever making tagliatelle on Saturday. Luca is a great host and made the evening amazingly entertaining. The meal was delicious, location and flat was perfect for the event. Thank you!

Jess Brown Oct 2023


Luca was a great teacher as well as creating a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It felt like a dinner party and cooking class mixed into one! Really excited to try making the dish again at home.

Handmade Ravioli Pasta Making Workshop review by Jess Brown - London

Emma Oct 2023


Luca was fantastic, we really enjoyed this class! The venue was intimate but with plenty of space for the pasta making. Good value for money - canapes, prosecco and the ravioli we made all included, we did not leave hungry! Will definitely practice making pasta at home in the future with all the knowledge Luca shared.

Esther Adhiambo Oct 2023


A lovely afternoon making ravioli! I went by myself and wasn’t sure what it would be like but Luca made everyone feel welcome and was great at getting us all chatting. The spinach and ricotta pasta was super tasty and lots of fun to make. I’m really glad I went and highly recommend

Chantele Jones Sep 2023


My husband and I had a great time cooking with Luca he put us at ease as soon as we met him. There were 7 of us taking part in the class and we made 2 types of pasta (tagliatelle and ravioli). Luca delivered the information filled class with humour, energy and the helpful tips were abundant. The prosecco helped losen up the group. We left smiling and full to the brim. Thank you!

Steph Spiers Sep 2023


Luca was an incredible host for the experience. Totally knowledgeable and a lovely person to spend the evening with, it truly felt like we were in the company of friends.

Charlotte Ranson Sep 2023


The class was absolutely fantastic. Luka made us all so welcome, was so knowledgeable, generous and hilarious. It was in a gorgeous Airbnb and just felt like an evening with friends relaxing, learning so much and having so much fun rather than a formal cooking class. It was a fantastic Friday evening!

Jessen Chen Aug 2023


Great night highly recommend it as a team building experience. Luca was knowledgeable and entertaining!

A fantastic class! Took my skills home with me where I cooked some amazing pasta from scratch, all thanks to Luca. He was an amazing teacher, lovely host and brilliant cook. He also cooked us a meal from the pasta we made. Never had a class like it. A lovely way to spend the evening.

Luca was such a fun and friendly tutor - he taught us to make a traditional Tiramisu, which turned out amazing. He's great at explaining each step really clearly and gave us some yummy tips on how we could alter the recipe for different flavours. He is clearly very passionate about cooking amazing Italian recipes and we all had a great time. Thank you Luca!

Caroline Barley May 2023


A fantastic afternoon spent with Luca. We came away having learnt a lot and feeling more confident about making our own pasta. Great ingredients throughout. Some well selected prosecco. Luca was engaging and knowledgeable. We're tempted to try the ravioli class next.

Luca was an absolutely amazing host. Vibrant, warm and knowledgeable!

The class itself was fun, and we enjoyed eating our own pasta from scratch to end off a nicely.

Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn how to make pasta from scratch or simply just want to have a good time!

Thanks Luca! X

Had an amazing time with Luca , he was very welcoming and enjoyed learning how to make pasta which I can happily say that I’ll make from scratch from now on. Perfect for going with friends , family or as a date

Bettina Traurig Apr 2023


Great evening! Luca was an amazing host, so friendly and welcoming, really making sure everyone is happy.

Also the pasta sauce was amazing - but it would have been good to get a heads up that it includes pork in the description (I assumed it would be beef only)

Tom Laszlo Apr 2023

Luka was very welcoming and a great host!

Cook an Authentic Italian Dish review by David Moxley

Konstantinos Tsiplakos Feb 2023


A great pasta making workshop.

We were welcomed with antipasti and fizzy drinks and Luca guided us step by step through the process to prepare, knead and cut (cutting the pasta into shape is the ultimate party trick!) and make pasta from scratch which we then combined with a great sauce for a delicious lunch.

Luca is a very knowledgeable and authentic instructor who makes learning feel fun and cooking with 6 strangers feel like a relaxed lunch with friends.

100% recommended.

Alex Malti Feb 2023


Luca was so friendly and knowledgeable about the drinks/food that were provided. The atmosphere was really great and such a nice way to meet people. Really enjoyed that we were taught how to make pasta using both machine and without one and the meal was absolutely delicious. would highly recommend! such a fun date night/ night with friends

Sapna Kumar Nov 2022


Luca I was a fantastic host and catered to my group’s dietary needs (vegetarian, no beef, gluten free). The cava was flowing and very tasty, along with the homemade pasta. We had an enjoyable afternoon and will likely book another course with Luca soon (if there are others!). Thanks Luca!

Lachlan McCulloch Nov 2022


The class was excellent! Portion sizes for food were huge and there was tonnes of wine throughout the afternoon. Luca and Thom were so much fun - I’d definitely recommend to anyone! Well worth the price!

Thoroughly enjoyed this session with Luca! Sadly my connection dropped at the pasta rolling out stage so I think mine was a little thick but I'm definitely going to do this again. Luca is friendly and chatty and it was interesting hearing about the regional variations of this recipe. I also loved him telling us about making pasta growing up with his family. That's when you know you're in very experienced hands. Highly recommended.
