I have a living social voucher for a 2 hour BYOB cooking class for 4 people. Is it possible for you to modify any of the classes to have a no meat menu? Would love to learn to make tiramisu. We are free most Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, except for Oct 10-20. Grazie….Thank you.

Mario prepared a seven course meal for my dad’s 85th birthday. Each course was prepared to perfection. Having the place to ourselves and the ability to bring our own wine was wonderful. I highly recommend Mario for your special event.
