Chef Andrea Belfiore combines culinary artistry, deep Italian family traditions, and the heartbeat of a rock n’ roll drummer to bring EVÈNTO guests tasty, tantalizing events and classes. It’s not about cooking mastery. That’s not our flavor. EVÈNTO is about learning to make simple, delicious meals and drinking fantastic beverages while laughing with coworkers, friends and family.

Our team creates virtual and in person experiences like you’ve never seen, heard or tasted. Come join the party at EVÈNTO.

What sounds better: Team building or team bonding? Whether you can be in the same room or online, when you sign up for an EVÈNTO experience, you’re in for more than the same old pizza and bowling with coworkers. We’re all about bringing people together and serving up generous portions of authentic Italian cuisine, enjoyment, and entertainment. Our virtual and in person events are one of a kind!


Our team of professional chefs, mixologists and sommeliers deliver unmatched online classes that will have you learning, laughing, and enjoying the delicious results. We can ship all the required ingredients, alcohol, and tools for our classes, and customized swag across the US, Canada and Europe. Classes are from one to two-hour long and they can be customized to your particular needs. 

Want to add a little twist to your virtual event? Our experiences can go beyond the palate and delight all of your senses with the addition of special performances such as Cirque Du Soleil’s Acts, Magicians, Contortionists and Music!

Our in-person experiences are one of a kind: It’s a party where you happen to be making pasta, shaking cocktails or tasting wines. 


We provide everything needed for your class, from the ingredients to the tools. We greet all of our guests with a complementary traditional Italian Aperitivo: Venetian Spritz’ and Bruschetta. 


Our most popular in-person classes are Handmade Tagliatelle, Handmade Tortelli, Gnocchi Making, Margarita Cocktails and regional wine tasting.


We can add custom swag such as branded aprons or pasta boards to any event.


It started with a love of Italian cooking, a passion for performance, and invitations to an off-the-rails dinner party in a New York City loft. What happened next was kind of amazing. People showed up. They learned to make pasta. They ate their own incredibly delicious dishes. They drank amazing wine and cocktails and watched a contortionist contort. And they wanted more … Fast forward to now, and eccellente! You’ve found EVÈNTO.

Sam and Andrea went above and beyond to accommodate us. I hope to book our future team quarterly events with the evento team (pizza is next!). Thank you!


Evento hosted a virtual cooking class for our team event. Chef Andrea was a fantastic host, both knowledgeable and entertaining. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to learn to cook fresh Italian food.

Amazing experience! I booked a virtual event for my team at work and it was such a smooth and easy process! Sam was great to work with setting everything up, and Chef Andrea provided an entertaining, informative, and fun cooking session. Everyone enjoyed themselves and I look forward to more events with Evento in the future!! Highly recommend!
