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.

Wonderful time with the “seaman”! The dinner was stepping out of the comfort zone for my friends and the final outcome for doing that was remarkable. It was a pleasure to get to dine with this very charismatic gentleman and the stories he offered were fun and insightful. Oh, and of course the food was good! Thank you for a special evening!

Massimo was not only a superb chef, but a kind soul with vivid stories to make our evening very special. The food locally sourced and was beyond spectacular. Massimo shared recipe & cooking tips on all of the delicious foods he served.  Our group started the evening as strangers and left as friends. It was a great way to meet interesting people from around the world. This experience was the highlight of our trip so far. I will write more and post photos on my travel blog lindytravels :)

My husband and I booked dinner with Massimo while we were in Venice on our honeymoon. Dinner with Massimo was one of the best experiences we had while in Venice. Massimo prepared and excellent dinner with local/traditional Venetian dishes which all tasted amazing. He was very considerate of my requests (no heads, and squeamish to texture) and prepared dishes that all of us enjoyed. Massimo was an entertaining and very gracious host. He served us different varieties of wines, including his father's wine from his vineyard and all of the wines complimented the dishes served. He prepared dinner using fresh ingredients from that day. We dined with 5 others and had an amazing time. I would highly recommend dining with Massimo and I hope to make it back some day and i would definitely do it again. If seafood is your thing, then Massimo is the right choice for you.

Great dinner with Massimo and his friend. Several tapas type dishes that were uniquely Venetian (compared to the (restaurant)..very nice dinner setting.
