Nestled underground among the rustic eatery's exposed-brick walls and bistro tables, intimate gatherings of diners puree, sautée, and taste their way through a traditional four-course Italian feast during Al Boccalino’s cooking classes. Head chef Luigi DeNunzio scampers about the large kitchen, engulfing eaters in the hearty aromas of seasonal and local ingredients, roasting onions and braising scallops, all while peppering the ears with anecdotes, advice, and freshly grated peppercorn. Nibble on anchovy-tossed linguine or sautéed baby octopus fresh off the stove. Enthusiastic eaters can choose between cooking the menu themselves for a hands-on experience or opt for the more easy-going demonstration, watching as Luigi chops, seasons, and stages scenes from The Godfather with the dishes.

Luigi's Italian Eatery

Growing up in the Italian port town of Brindisi, Luigi DeNunzio frequented the colorful outdoor markets with his father. Surrounded by stalls bursting with local produce, meat, fish, and dairy, Luigi discovered his love of rustic cuisine composed from the freshest regional ingredients. After immigrating to Seattle in 1977, Luigi amassed experience in both cooking and business while working at a handful of the city's Italian restaurants. In 1989, he opened a restaurant where tables covered in white linen host plates of hearty Italian fare. Since then, Luigi has expanded his oeuvre at Luigi's Italian Eatery to include cooking classes

Customer Reviews

Honestly, this may be my favorite GroupOn purchase ever. What a treat! Bill was our host for the evening and gave us a wonderful guided tour through our multi-course meal. The restaurant is small, but the area for the cooking class is in the back and limited to six people... perfect for a date night! We had lots of hands-on time with the food prep, Bill was friendly, patient, funny, and a great teacher.

The cooking class was amazing. Our chef/teacher was humorous, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The menu for the lesson is unique and delicious. There was an overall amiable, cozy and lovely vibe to this small cooking class.
