The most passionate man I've ever come across, let it be history, music, philosophy, food, love, song, I joined him on a trip with the Italian School of Cooking to Molise & Campobasso it was so brilliant. I went on another trip the following year eating like gannets & drinking beautiful wine. Marco took us to his village where the locals put out tables of food and drink and the parish priest joined us in food, drink and song. I'll never forget these wonderful trips, we were in the forest where the wild boars forage for truffles, beautiful castles, vineyards churches. We certainly had the pleasure of tasting the flavor of Italy an seeing how the people live in beautiful community with each other in little villages. Keep up the good work Maurizio & Marco until we meet again with loads of love Fergal xxx Live life at its best with Flavor of Italy."

The next time you are in town, please head into Pinocchio’s, it’s the best Italian restaurant in Dublin, this one only opened on the 17th March this year, and I cannot recommend it enough, that have a great list of wine’s, you can buy products to bring home and cook, the menu is fantastic, it is proper Italian food, cooked by Italians, who make you feel welcome, and do not rush you away from the table, they also run a cookery school “The Italian School of Cooking” with Marco Giannantonio & Giuseppe Crupi, so if you like real Italian food, a place with nice staff and somewhere to improve your cookery skills, Pinocchio has it all under one roof. Buon appetito.

"Hi Giuseppe, many thanks to yourself, Seba and Lorenzo for a fantastic evening. Everybody had a great time. I will spread the word in FBD !!"


"Myself & Rachael had a fab time on Saturday.  Besides ‘learning’  from your Brilliant self,  it was a lovely social outing that I would highly recommend it to anyone – makes me want to go out & buy Pasta making & cutting machines! Joking aside, found the course very informative –  the set-up in the school was great – very hands on – which surprised me as I have done cookery classes before in the city centre & we just sat & watched the Chef do the cooking and got to do a very small bit of cooking at the very end then  sat eating it off paper plates using disposable forks– this was so much better – let’s face it at the end of your ‘cookery lesson’ you have a 3 course meal made by yourself & your group, seated at a table with proper plates & utensils & not forgetting a ‘lovely’ glass of wine yum! What better way to spend your Saturday morning – beats cleaning the house any day!!"


"Great experience. Plus you get to eat your cooking efforts :) Highly recommended for groups of friends or colleagues. I'm going again for sure!"

"We had an absolutely great afternoon filled with loads of fun and went away with some tasty recipes and techniques. Your energy and passion really added to the great atmosphere found in your kitchen!"


"Thanks so much for a wonderful evening at the Italian School of Cookery! It was much more than a cookery course....it was a really great, memorable experience with the "perfetto" mixture of entertainment, learning and fun. It is a unique experience and great to have the privacy of an exclusive venue and be able to feel right at home there. The relaxed atmosphere was created by Giuseppe, our chef who ensured that the work got done in the most enjoyable way! Everyone really enjoyed it and no doubt will be back soon to relive the experience! Thanks so much."


"Many, many thanks for the entertainment and education at the SAP event on Sunday. It was a really special experience both on a personal and team level."


"I too am looking forward to cooking with you again. Last April I did the Easter meal with you. On that course we were shown how to make Focaccia, Homemade Tagliatelle & Torta Della Nona. Since then I have made the Focaccia several times and have nicely perfected the base through trial and error. It's been well received by my dinner guests. I have made the torta della nona only once and it was a good effort. Because of these courses I am now cooking Christmas eve dinner for my family. This time last year I was useless in the kitchen but now I have a great interest in cooking and getting better at it. Thanks to Flavor of Italy I am now enjoying a new past time that is both healthy, creative and fun."
