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.

We had a fantastic five course Venetian feast at Massimo's home. The food was prepared with such care, with significant contributions from Massimo’s Mom (fresh vegetables) and Dad (wine from a rare grape). Massimo was generous and creative in adapting to peoples’ allergies and preferences . Only wish was that we had more conversation time with Massimo himself - we were a big group and so it was hard for him to divide his time. Nonetheless, we would return, it was really a night to remember!

Whenever I think of our Venetian food experience at Massimo's artsy apartment, appears a BIG smile! Our group of 9 friends enjoyed the cooking skills of Massimo and his friend Ariele tremendously! His wonderful stories added the extra spice to this evening. It was just excellent! I recommend it to all foodies that want to have a unique experience in Venice.

Myself and my partner, Pam, had a really enjoyable experience with several other guests hosted by Massimo. We did not know what to expect however the evening was unique and engaging, with plenty of laughs, good food and conversation. Massimo was an impeccable host providing a good insight into what living in Venice is like in the current day as well as serving up some classic venetian cuisine. Our only regret was that time ran short and the evening got away from us (time flies when having fun). Salute to Massimo for providing us with a unique and memorable night in Venice. Cheers, Aaran & Pam
