Ready-to-cook fresh pasta meal can be arranged at your request. We make it, you cook it - ready in under 10 mins when you feel like eating in but want to eat good food. Comes with home made Italian sauce, made from our own Passata. Nothing artificial in it.


Why not organise a group of 6 to 8 foodies with a passion for learning how to cook (and eat) traditional Italian home made meals? Nonna Maria will demonstrate how to make the pasta dough, set up and use the pasta machine, and how to make a scrumptious tomato based sauce. All participants will take part in a hands-on way, and the best part is, the class is followed by a long lunch of Italian foods.

Join us for a day spent in great company and show off your pasta and sauce making skills at home. These days make fantastic bonding sessions or a gift with thought.

Costs $100.00 per person and includes

Full sit down Italian lunch and wine

Italian morning tea with traditional home made biscuits

Espresso and light sweets after lunch

Fresh Pasta Pack (500 - 600gm)

Our home made Sauce ready to simply warm up

Small gift of dried home grown herbs

Conditions apply. To book your place and a full program, ask us in a booking request.

Family Friendly Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 5th Avenue Katoomba. I stayed here with my two small children over the Christmas School holidays and it was the best place we could have chosen. The privacy and convenience of this property easily accommodated myself my small children and my mother. If you are considering staying here I suggest you do.

Lovely place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 5th Avenue, the house was really clean and tidy with lovely notes around the place from Silvana! We had a group of 8 and there was plenty of space, cooking utensils, beds, towels etc for everyone. Would definitely recommend the walk down to minne ha ha falls

Had a nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the mountains. The owner also makes homemade fresh pasta and Passata with Italian meatballs that you can buy off her.... so that was lovely not having to worry about cooking!

Comfortable place with awesome fireplace

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Silvana's place for Christmas in July this year and had such a good time. Silvana was very accommodating by letting us check in early and check out late; as well as by kindly decorating the place with christmas decoration at our request. The fireplace was fantastic. The kitchen was spacious. The place was clean and well maintained.

Owner's Response: Thank you Peter and Friends for your gracious review. You missed the snow by a week - now that would have made your Christmas in July truly memorable! However, it sounds like your group had a wonderful time and we are very happy we could be a part of that. Silvana
