Pupils can sample various wines as they cook, and when they sit down to eat, they can enjoy a wine paired to the dinner they created.

The lunch menu includes an ample selection of salads, starters, sandwiches, and main courses, including a prosciutto-and-mozzarella panini ($8), artichoke lasagna ($12), and baked halibut ($15).

Parioli Italian Bistro

No matter where you sit at Parioli Italian Bistro, you’ll be treated to excellent Italian food and romantic lighting. From the cozy outdoor patio lit with hanging strings of lights, guests order rack of lamb or housemade lobster ravioli. Inside the dining room, a fire crackles and candles flicker on tables dressed in white cloths. When not savoring a plate of steamed mussels or gnocchi, guests can learn the secrets behind the tantalizing dishes during cooking classes, which treat students to a multi-course meal with wine, just like Home Ec class in school.
