After enjoying an appetizer of creamy, buttery fresh burrata, you can look forward to exploring a variety of velvety risottos, including mushroom and black truffle, as well as shrimp and zucchini. For dessert, elegant, yet rustic mini Italian hand pies, known as "crostatine," filled with simple and bright homemade preserves.

Chef Luana is amazing! From the moment she welcomed us into her home to the second she wished us a good evening, I never stopped smiling and laughing. Chef Luana is highly skilled and she’s fantastic to cook with. She gives you the true Italian experience complete with a fantastic view from her home. 10/10 would recommend and I will 1000% be back to cook again with Chef Luana. I’d give her 100 star rating if I could!

Chef Luana is the best! We had a great time making risotto with her. You can tell she is exceptionally passionate and knowledgeable, and she really wants to share her expertise with others. We made 2 types of risotto: mushroom + shrimp and zucchini. I rarely eat seafood, but WOW - that shrimp risotto was excellent! She also helped us make beautiful pastries with homemade jam, and even prepared extras for us to take home; it was such a nice touch to a great evening! In addition, Chef Luana prepared a delicious salad and authentic, homemade bread for us to enjoy alongside our risotto dinner - we could not have asked for more. Go take her class, make some new friends and eat some amazing food! We'll be back to do it again!
