Hi everybody! I’m Lucia, head chef and co- owner of Mattarello Cooking lab, and me and my husband Francesco are both pasta makers. I start making pasta from when I was six and I never stop. In italy I studied law but I soon realized that food is my passion and in 2010 I invest my scholarship to open my first little bakery-pasta shop and then another one bigger in the center of Milan. In 2018 I moved in San Diego with Francesco and we really would like share our passion with you!

    This pasta making class was everything we were hoping for and more! Lucia was hilarious and super helpful, and as an Italian native, he knew his stuff when it came to pasta! We were able to make many different kinds of pasta and eat it at the end with Lucia's homemade pesto...delicious!

    Francesco was our instructor and although he gave good instructions, I was expecting a better service after the class since we get to eat the pasta after we are done. Some bread and butter or olive oil would had been great. Also I wanted to see more of their own creations at the store for purchase. The instructor didn’t come out after to conclude the class and say good bye to participants. The price is too high for what it is. I think $30 would be more of a fair price.

    This is one of the highlights, if not the single best part of our trip to San Diego. Our host was welcoming, personable, patient, knowledgeable, funny, and put us at ease. The location is wonderful. As two single female traveling, we both felt safe. Our host asked if we had requested for specific types of pasta. We didn’t know the other parties but everyone got along and we each learned something from each other as well. If we were staying longer we would have signed up for the additional experiences this host offered as well. Definitely worth the time and cost.

    Great class! Learned a thing or two about pasta making and inspired me to make pasta at home! Great way to spend our anniversary!

    Great experience! Took our mom here to celebrate her 70th birthday and it was a great family activity and it allowed us to venture around Hillcrest afterwards.

    10/10 recommend taking this class! We travelled from Los Angeles to attend and is did not disappoint. The host was great and the pasta was delicious! Can’t wait to practice more pasta making at home!
