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! The ancient building I'm living in is also home of many artists and having dinner together always brought them good luck! So , welcome artists !

My wife and I just returned from a delightful and delicious dinner prepared by our Venice Host Massimo. The food and wine were home made and served along with interesting conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Thanks again, Massimo for a memorable evening.

This was an experience I will never forget. The location in the "palazzo " was amazing, the other people we dined with were amazing, the food was amazing, and Massimo and his friend (I'm so sorry we forgot your name!) were gracious hosts. It felt like we ate a 9 course meal with all the food they had that was all 100% home made and you could tell. This by far was the best food we have had on our entire trip to Italy. If you are in Italy and have a night open you better take this opportunity. The food was amazing and the conversation was great. They really were interested in talking to you and it was great to learn some things from them. Overall if we had a free night in Venice again we honestly would book this again because of how amazing it was

AMAZING 9 DISHES OF WONDERFUL FOOD !!!! Massimo is charming and a delightful host. He met us in a nearby campo and led us to his hidden and lovely garden. He created an atmosphere of welcome and conviviality and we all felt as if we were his friends who he had invited to a party. He is an excellent cook and served us generous portions of traditional Venetian seafood dishes and wine. I would recommend this experience to anyone wishing to get a peek at the "real" Venice. It was also a fun way to meet other travellers and food lovers
