Class Information

Regional chefs from Italy will visit arte italia throughout the year, focusing on traditional recipes with innovative techniques. The class schedule for each day will include a mix of traditional and contemporary cuisine from the chef's region. For each culinary class, the visiting chef will prepare an authentic Italian dinner including antipasto, primo piatto, secondo piatto and dolce. 

The menus change for each class. The chefs generally include fish, poultry, meats, dairy products, garlic, herbs and olive oil in their recipes.

Regional interest in arte italia’s culinary program has been overwhelming! Our guests are thrilled to dine in the Cucina with visiting chefs but our seating capacity is very limited. Therefore, we strive to fairly allocate seating between new culinary guests and former guests that have participated in the past. We utilize a fair system of randomized selection to assign seating for each culinary class.

You may enter a registration request for yourself and one guest (party of two). Please provide the name of your guest at the time of enrollment registration. We will notify randomly selected registrants by e-mail. Once you’ve been notified, please secure your reservation by submitting payment via PayPal or mailing your check payment as soon as possible.* Pleae do not send payment unless you have been notified regarding selection.

Additional street parking is available on both California Avenue and Flint Street, and metered parking on surrounding streets is free after 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and all day on Sundays and holidays.
