InRome Cooking grew out of a deep love of Roman-style, Italian food. Brother and Sister: Marilena and Salvatore Barberi, brought to life their dream of opening a cooking school. The school is in tribute to their father’s legendary restaurant near the Vatican.
After 20 years of hosting and guiding visitors around Rome, the Barberi’s now welcome you to learn Italian recipes from scratch while resting in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.
Getting the kitchen ready was a labor of love. Set in a fantastic historic apartment in the city center, meticulously renovated in 2016. The dining room has a 17th century, hand painted ceiling. And, the school has a sleek, modern kitchen with several stovetops and big marble tables.

My mother and I took this class and loved it! Chef David was knowledgeable, professional and fun! He loves food and shared great ideas and tips! I would definitely do this again!
My girlfriend and I did this pasta making class our last day in Rome, and along with 10 others we had an absolute blast. We learned a lot, the food was fantastic, and the atmosphere was even better. The lesson was fun, informative, and collaborative. Each team of 2 got to make roughly their portion size of pasta (it was all collectively cooked and shared), and their own personal tiramisù. The best way I can put it is that the class we were in had an individual there who had taken similar courses at the same school two times previously, and he had every intent to take another the next time he visited Rome. It's truly an experience worth having again and again.
We had a wonderful time learning the secrets of Roman style pizza making. Our hosts and instructor were fantastic and very helpful. The best part is enjoying the great creation at the end with a cold beer. SALUTE!
This is a great cooking class!!!
The instructor was fun and very helpful! We made ravioli and fettuccine. We also got to try various cheeses and wines while cooking! He taught us the true Italian way to make pasta rather than teaching us how to use machines. Great class!
Everything was great in our pasta & tiramisu making class. We learnt how to make ravioli and some other pasta that I don't remember the name right now and tiramisu. Chefs were great, friendly and talented. The kitchen was great. I loved it!
InRome Cooking provided one of my favorite parts of this trip. The staff encouraged us to befriend our fellow classmates and we made friends that will last a lifetime. I can’t thank them enough for their hospitality. I will for sure be back.
We had a blast! Our instructor Lily was fantastic!
The kitchen was very nice as well as the dinning area. The instructor was funny and a good teacher. The group was diverse and fun. All in all it was exactly what we hoped for.
Very fun. Chef Marco was great and entertaining. Special guest Chef Danielle was a treat.
Lily made the evening very enjoyable. You won’t go hungry!
My mother and I participated in the InRome evening cooking class. We made two pastas and a tiramisu. The food was excellent, there was bottomless champagne and wine and the teacher (Fillipo) was INCREDIBLE. He was so fun and knowledgeable. The class was in English and his English was excellent. The location was very central (Piazza Navona) and the kitchen was beautiful and the dining room where we ate what we made was lovely as well. It was the highlight of our trip. It is a great way to spend an afternoon. We highly recommend InRome cooking.
We had an excellent time at the class. The instructor was amazing. He was personable and gave easy to understand commands. We had two teenagers in our group and they stayed engaged and focused throughout the experience. The food ended up tasting delicious and we all enjoyed the experience. Definitely would recommend doing a cooking class to others.
Marco is such a great teacher. Great sense of humor with a lot of knowledge. He was very well prepared for what we needed. Very organized. Makes it fun to have hands-on experience. Makes the class very enjoyable.
We had 4 girls, the class was a great experience for them, and informative for the adults. The chef was very knowledgeable.
My husband and I fell in love with this class! I am in love with Rome but this cooking class made me fell in love with it more. We got to experience firsthand cooking with Italian chef and we recreated famous Italian cuisines that we usually eat in expensive restaurants. We had a quick market tour wherein we both mingled with Italian locals, they were so sweet and kind. Then we went straight to the cooking kitchen and everything was so clean and organized. We joined another couple in the class and we cooked altogether in separate workstations. We created Pasta from scratch, tasted local Tiramisu and we also made Straccetti di Manzo. It was such an experience I cannot forget. It was classic Italian experience!
Francesco Lucia was a great chef. We enjoyed our lesson very much. The small class size was a plus as well. We only had 6. Pizza & gelato were perfect.
We absolutely loved Francesco’s class! It was one of the highlights of our family trip to Rome.
I went with my best friend to the tiramisu and pasta class. And it turned out we got very lucky. We went to the morning class, and had a private lesson! We met Lily, who was very nice and welcoming. She explained how to make every little thing, and assisted when needed. Definitely the greatest cooking class I ever took part in. We made two different pasta dishes, and tiramisu. Lily made sure we love all the ingredients, and asked us what we would like to add to the sauce and the filling of the ravioli. The food was really incredible and we finished the cooking class by eating in the very nice dining room. Lily plated our food, and served us wine - everything was great! If I could give more than five stars, I would!
The ravioli and noodles were great as was the tiramisu. Kept the wine flowing.
Lily est une chef sympathique professionnelle et pédagogue Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un cours privé et c'était une très belle expérience
We had a good time and learned a few things. Very small class with lots of hands-on and one on one time. The Pizza and gelato turned out very good.
Phillipe and his staff were friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed snacks before class. Learning to make gelato and pizza were definitely highlights of our trip to Rome. My 13 year old son loved the experience and would highly recommend it!
This was a great way to spend our last day in Rome. The class was great for all skill levels and very informative. We had so much fun. The instructors were very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t have asked for a better time. Would definitely do this again when we return.
Love this so much in Rome. The chef was a true expert so much fun learning with him
Loved the entire experience start to finish.
A unforgettable experience. Learned so much in such a small space of time. Our chef Andrew was excellent. We couldn't recommend this highly enough. Memories to treasure forever. A must do in Rome.
Adri was amazing! This was a fun family experience! We had 4 adults and 4 kids. Everyone had a blast and the pizzas and gelato were delicious! There were fresh, high-quality ingredients used, and we all were impressed with our creations. Great experience!!!
Nous sommes venues à Rome avec ma soeur, nous étions à la recherche d'une expérience unique et insolite. Nous nous sommes lancées dans l'aventure : découvrir la gastronomie italienne avec un cours de cuisine en anglais. Nous n'avions pas un très bon niveau d'anglais mais nous avons réussi à tout comprendre ! Le cours de cuisine restera notre meilleur souvenir d'Italie !
We had a very pleasant evening learning to make pasta and tiramisu. The staff was very professional and nice, they helped us pasteurise the egg yolks for the tiramisu since my wife was pregnant without us asking. The facilities the class had was also very good for this, professional and not apartment like. I highly recommend taking this class. The Cooking took 3 hours but time just flew by and after we sat down and had a wonderful meal with the rest that attended the course. /Thomas and Christel from Sweden
Very good! Highly recommend Max!
This was the highlight of your six day trip to ROME! Gloria was Amazing!!! We had a seven year old with us and she made him feel like he was a master chef! She made special sauces and allowed him to whip, stir, cut and fold with the rest of the class. He is still taking about the class. We recommend this class to anyone visiting ROME!
Great class , very detailed, chef made sure we did everything correctly. Watched us all closely and gave us great directions on how to make 2 different kinds of pasta and desert. Well worth our time and money in Rome
Our chef, Gloria, and the other four students made the class truly enjoyable. Gloria really educated us about different technics, flavors, and healthy ingredients. She also gave each of us individual instructions as needed. 5 stars!! We can’t wait to receive our written recipes and cook the pastas and tirimisu for our family.
The teacher was very nice and gave us a lot of tricks and information about how to make the best pasta and tiramisu so we can make at home like the Italians makes. After we finished making everything we're sitting by a table and drank wine while the food we made was served to us. I'm highly recommend this class!
We loved our cooking class! Definitely our favorite thing in Rome so far. It was so much fun to meet someone local and get to know them. I would definitely recommend this class!
Big thanks from the Bactiguard team for a great pizza and gelato class! We are so proud of our achievements :)
What an incredible, unique experience to be making tiramisu and pasta in Rome. We got lucky the morning we came in for our class because we basically ended up with a private cooking course with Max since the other people did not show up. Max, from beginning to end was such a blast. He was super friendly, down to earth and was so knowledgeable - it made the three hours we spent with him flow very well. We had a glass of prosecco, made ravioli and noodles, finished a bottle of white wine and enjoyed the tiramisu that we had begun with. Not only was the class enjoyable, but the food was so delicious! The InRome Cooking location was centrally located that had a large, fully equipped kitchen kept completely pristine for cooking class. There was even a beautiful dining room to enjoy your hard work in as well.
It was a great experience and would definitely recommend it to everyone.
7 person learn to makes italy foods. (zucchini flower appetizer,pepper pasta,meat,dessert) it so really great experience in rome! im really recommand this class.
Both chefs were a blast, we met fantastic people, and we loved it. My mother and I enjoyed the other couples and families -- all ages. We already mailed ourselves a pasta maker and can't wait to break it in!
