We had a blast! We attended the seafood class. Learned a lot and had fun doing so. We'll be going again soon. Go hungry!

Beware...They charge you tax and a 15% gratuity at the end of the class and the gratuity is based on the "retail price". So I purchased a class for 4 and when it was finished, was presented with a bill for an additional $70!!! I complained but was told that was customary. The class was a lot of fun and we truly enjoyed Chef George, but this major $ surprise at the end is ridiculous.

Everyone was great. We took the pasta cooking lesson and they prepped sauces for us - it was quite a feast! Bring your own wine and plan to eat... a lot!

Make sure you read the fine print ... 35 dollars tax and gratuity . But was most definitely worth it !

We were having dinner there one night when a cooking class was going on. Our food was superb, and the class looked like fun. I have attended two of the classes already and am eagerly waiting to take the "Soups 2" class in the near future. You need reservations for dinner, and must book your classes early. Check the website weekly for new class schedules. Love it!!

I felt like it wasn't really a cooking class as most of it was done by the chef and it was really crammed. Felt like it should have been more hands on.

From Our Editors

During the day, Trattoria Bel Paese Cooking Academy cuts a humble figure with its deli area bursting with grilled panini, fresh salads, and Italian hero sandwiches. By night, though, Chef George Joseph draws a curtain around the glass counter and, according to Teresa Politano of the Star-Ledger, this "unassuming little Clark Kent of a restaurant" sheds its eyeglasses to fight villainous hunger with a menu of authentic Sicilian and Italian specialties. Chef Joseph puts his international training to use for each meal, calling upon skills learned in London, Melbourne, and Italy itself to craft heaping portions of pastas with sweet red sauce and veal with cream sauce. Working with gluten-free and organic ingredients upon request, he also crafts platters of hot chicken parmigiana and fresh black mussels with marinara as part of Trattoria Bel Paese's catering team. But Chef Joseph doesn't limit his gifts to his own kitchen. He also educates the next generation of chefs during cooking classes, which combine fresh ingredients and simple Italian preparations into delicious, memorable at-home meals.
