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.

We were a family of 2 adults and 2 kids and we thoroughly enjoyed our class, we did lots of things in Rome and this was the best. Very kind and informative chefs, yummy food and we have even come home and made pasta again. It is one of the more expensive things we did on our trip but worth every penny and would highly recommend.
I’ve done a cooking class in Rome before, this one was my favorite. The chefs were very funny and super helpful. The class was small enough where they were able to individually answer questions or help. I definitely recommend this class!
We had a wonderful time learning from Marco at our pizza and gelato class while visiting Rome. We enjoyed learning new techniques and recipes from a true Italian. Wonderful experience, highly recommend!
Loved it. My first cooking class ever. From, Ebonee
Best Italian cook to learn how to make the traditional pasta and Tiramisù. We enjoyed her company very much. The food was excellent.
Such a good vibe! It was our last night in Rome and we picked the perfect thing to do! We had such a great time!
We really enjoyed our evening with Max making tiramisu and pasta. It was all so tasty, looking forward to trying to recreate it at home.
Marco was an excellent host and taught us several new techniques and tricks even within the first few minutes. He was very friendly, funny, and I’m sure this will be one of the highlights of our visit to Rome. And, of course, the food was excellent! I would HIGHLY recommend doing this class.
The tutor was very welcoming, nice and teaching with pleasure. We received a very clear step by step guide. The place was clean and suitable for cooking. The meal we prepared was delicious and very satisfying. We totally recommend taking this class!
Its our first cook experience abroad and it has been amazing! We enjoyed the class 100%! The chef Marco works with fresh products, he is amusing, kind and an incredible chef! He also gives us some tips for make the pasta and tiramisu better at home. This class the best part of our trip in Rome.
Lovely class, David was a great teacher, was a wonderful experience on a rainy night.
The entire set up was very professional & the class was very fun!
We made two delicious pasta meals and it was delicious. The staff was great and a lot of fun. Great evening in Roma, especially on a rainy night.
We are so glad we did this- it was easily one of the best experiences of our entire trip. Our class instructor, Marco, was incredible- he made this class so fun, engaging, and memorable. Not to mention, the pizza we made was easily the best pizza we had on our entire trip in Italy! Thank you for this awesome experience.
The class was amazing! Davida was an awesome teacher!
Love Chef David. Clear, fun and food was excellent. Location perfect. Kitchen facility was lovely. Suzanne, Santa Barbara CA.
We were a group of 10 people, and everyone felt that they learned something that evening. The chef was fun, easy to talk to and a great learner.
I learned a lot in a fun and supportive environment. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they make any children feel especially welcome. Highly recommend!
Very nice and warm people, useful tips for better result. Inspiring atmosphere.
Chef Francesco led a fun and delicious class last week. From the sumptuous biscotti that was waiting for us, fresh, when we arrived, to the tasty and unique dishes we prepared - Saffron Cavatelli, Proscuitto-filled Ravioli, Tiramisu - this class exceeded expectations! Don't miss it!!
Would highly recommend this cooking class. Chef was fab! Can't wait to try out our new skills at home. Pizza delicious!!
Everybody can easily follow the class with a nice and friendly ITALIANO chef. Have delicious foods, new friends from various countries, and a memorable experience in such a fantastic city!
This was the best part of our trip!
We booked an Italian cooking class at the last minute. We liked the look of this package over others because it seemed to include more in the package than others including more food and wine included. Met with our fab your chef, Francesco who took us on a tour of the markets where we bought or produce for the class - lovely veges and meat. The premises were spacious and modern. with lovely helpers. A communal effort to cool a 4 course meal while sipping on you choice of wine - ours being proseco and red with lunch. Good location near the Pantheon. I would definitely recommend and do it again.
The food was delicious, the entire family had fun including the kids. Great instruction in a comfortable setting.
Great experience, especially with kids. Don't miss it.
The chef gently taught so that we can follow the steps easily. Even my husband was first time to learn cook, he satisfied with this course :) Higly recommend!
Lotta fun! Thank you Marco
We have been to cooking classes all over the world and this was the best one we have attended.
there were 5 of us ranging from early 20's to mid 70's and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Loved this cooking class! The pasta and Tiramisu were delicious! It was nice meeting people as well!
Chef David is very good in explaining, demonstrating and skilful in cooking. The environment was very contusive too. I felt very comfortable during the class and enjoyed the meal with new cooking friends.
Thanks for a great nite!
The chefs were knowledgeable and entertaining to listen to. We cook cacio e pepe and a tomato sauce and learned interesting and challenging techniques. The pasta making was so fun and surprisingly easy. Delicious food at the end and wine to top it off. I’d reccommend even to those who don’t like cooking.
Our experience was simply fantastic. The kitchen facility was fantastic for our group of 7 students. The Chief was amazing and very experienced and was more than happy to share his tips. Nice to be greeted with Prosecco and hot rice balls. Our certainly do it again.
It was better than our favorite Neopolitan style pizza that we expected the class to be.
Great class. Great teacher, who is passionate about good food. I would go back again and again!
The chef was fun and talented. Engaged everyone in the group. The good was wonderful! Fun family experience.
The class was a great experience to share with my mom!! We met so many great people and learned new ways to cook. The class was so enjoyable and fun!
It was a great class teach us each key component in a pizza. The right amount of certain ingredients for certain ingredients. The gelato making was an interesting twist too.
My boyfriend and I had the best time with some very lovely people.
A great experience to have in Rome with a friend or partner. This class allows you to meet new people, step outside of your comfort zone, and it makes for great pictures. Definitely recommend wearing comfortable shoes though because there is a lot of standing.
Max and Francesco were wonderful. It was such a fun class where we got to make Tiramisu and two kinds of pasta. They explained all the steps and were very helpful. It was also delicious! I can’t wait to bring back the things I learned to try at home. This was an awesome class and I would highly recommend if you are in Rome!
The tour guide, Sara Rontondi, was knowledgable and friendly. The chef, Francesco Luca, was superb. The drivers were professional and interesting to talk to. Everything was excellent.
A solid experience with a professional cook
This class is highly recommended. We were lucky enough to work with max who made everything from start to finish nothing short of entertaining. He catered the menu to our wants and in the end we created the most amazing dishes. Instructions were provided well and he was very patient with our large group. If you are coming to Rome and considering pasta making you must book this!
Our cooking teacher Francesco had great energy. Taught us how to make Tiramisu, ravioli and another pasta. So much fun and truly was our best meal so far!!! Highly recommend this experience to all
Chef was great and food was amazing. So much fun!
We learned to make pasta, two delicious sauces, and tiramisu in Roma! Fillippo, our instructor, was fun, informative, and patient. What an entertaining and gratifying vacation dinner. We will certainly take classes from Cookly again!
Chef was great. Good beginners cooking class- good for kids. Tasty food!
Chef David did a wonderful job making us feel welcomed and teaching us how to make two different pastas! We also loved making and eating the tiramisu! This was a highlight of our trip to Rome and something our whole family enjoyed! We can’t wait to go home and try some of these recipes on our own!!
Friendly and fun instructor, delicious food! Would definitely reccomend!
It was my birthday and instead of simply having a dinner, I invited my friends to the class and we really enjoyed it! The process itself and the result were both enjoyable and worth the money!
Davide was a excellent teacher. Enjoyed the whole experience. Two large dishes of pasta was a lot to eat, but both dishes were very good and I look forward to getting the recipes. I would highly recommend this class.
The instructor was terrific and the food we made was actually delicious!
The food was delicious, the atmosphere was amazing!
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!
