Wonderful cooking experience with Antonio. We made delicious food from fantastic ingredients. Ate so much! Antonio was a great teacher and great fun. Would highly recommend a visit to Villa Palamara for this thoroughly enjoyable cooking experience. Easy cab ride from Cefalù.

Three generations cooked and ate and drank and enjoyed every minute of this experience. Antonio could not have been more knowledgeable or delightful. It was a true highlight of our stay in Bella Cefalu.
