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.

This was our first Bonappetour dinner and a delightful introduction to the concept. It was wonderful meeting up with our small group in the plaza and walking around the corner to Massimo's house. Due to threatening weather we ate indoors and his house was very intimate and charming. It was fun chatting with the other guests as course after course of delicious, interesting food came out with Massimo and his friend. Everyone was relaxed and happy as we ate and chatted into the night. I would not hesitate to suggest Massimo's and look forward to our return!

Our experience with Massimo was nothing short of excellent, when we first met him he was opening, inviting and charming, the dining room was candlelit, the lack of boats or annoyance forces you to enjoy the surroundings. The food moreover was like nothing you could get in a restaurant for double or triple the price in addition to the host, overall its an unforgettable experience for anyone who enjoys "eating like a local" attitude.

We had a wonderful dinner with Massimo and his friend Francisco while in Venice. The food was delicious, wine flowing, the experience unique. We had our 12 year old daughter with us and Massimo was wonderful putting her at ease and prepared a delicious primi with her favorite seafood - octopus! We all had a lot of fun!

We had the fortunate opportunity to share a table with Madison right after he spent time on the sea volunteering onboard a rescue ship. Maddimos stories were inspiring and colorful. It was a pleasure to meet another family and couple over an excellent meal. I feel the price is very fair and the meal was more enjoyable than any me and my girlfriend would have had on our own in Venice.

Everything about our experience with Massimo was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious and Massimo’s hospitality makes you immediately feel at home or as if you have known him for years! We highly recommend adding this to your holiday in Venice.
