ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

The ancient palazzo, where I’m living in, is unique. Explore the channel, courtyard and my apartment!
I love people who are interested in a secret Venice - the Venice of its palaces and their inhabitants and authentic Venetian food. No one is a tourist in my eyes. I am genuine just like my food.
The palace I'm living in is also home of many artists and having dinner together always brought them good luck! So , welcome artists ! But I also befriend couples and friends on their holidays in Venice, and you are more than welcome at any time.
Stories of the sea and seamen and art are my favorite topics, Venice is art. I do enjoy learning, too and therefore listening!

ABOUT THEMENU

My menu is based on fresh fish from local market.
An aperitif served with typical Venetian "chichetti" are a must, followed by the best hand-made pasta with fresh fish. Let's go on with some fish "al forno", stuffed calamari, cuttlefish and polenta, and a good wine. I'm growing fresh vegetables , of course bio. ...and tiramisu or panna cotta?
Peppers stuffed with chickpeas,"masenete"(special crabs from adriatic sea),"caponata" a mix of fantastic vegetables ,"sarde in saor"a tipical way to cooking sardines of Venice's ancient seaman ,artichokes ,handmade pasta whit asparagus and a good wine(the bread and focaccia are also homemade!!)

ABOUT THELOCATION

This experience is ideal for anyone interested to learn about authentic Venetian culture, through food, and stories. Whether you are a couple on honeymoon, or a family or a group of friends travelling together, I am sure you will enjoy learning about my land and tasting my food.

I live in Central Venice, in an ancient palace, which I’m living in, Come and explore the channel, courtyard and my apartment!

Amazing experience with Massimo! He was a great host, fantastic cook. We were in Venice to celebrate 10 year Wedding Anniversary and have to say this was definitely a highlight of our trip! Would highly recommend this evening experience. He also had a few friends to help him with general serving and clearing up of tables. My husband and I stayed fora few drinks extra after the other quests left and Massimo gave us a gift for our anniversary. Look forward to meeting him again..... Thank You Massimo... xx

We just left Massimo's home and all I can say is WOW! what an experience. Massimo is an amazing cook, fantastic host and just a great guy. Though we only met this once, I feel we've established a friendship that will endure. Thank you so much for making this evening so special. We'll definitely tell everyone we know about you and our wonderful dinner. Addio amico mio.

Truly an incredible experience. Was just my father and I. He usually doesn't do such small groups but hosted us nonetheless. Such a unique and genuine Venetian experience. Every dish was truly delicious and adventurous. The value for what you get is fantastic. But the best part was the personality and kindness of our host. Massimo's dinner is a hidden gem in Venice.

We had a wonderful night with Massimo and would recommend this experience if you're looking for something off the beaten path in Venice! We met him on a bridge in Venice where he took us to his flat, a converted palace turned into units. He was able to accommodate our schedule and it ended up being an exclusive dinner. We had 5 amazing courses of local food, drank wine from his family's reserve, and shared stories of all our world travels. It was both great value and a great experience for us. Highly recommend!
