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 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!

My girlfriend and I had a lovely dinner with Massimo. He was a great host in every way: great food, great wine, great decor, great conversation. This was by far the best meal we had in Italy and I would recommend this to everyone who visit Venice.

It was a very interesting experience of visiting a local host in Venice and experience local food. The food was on one side "simple" but with a nice personal touch and delicious. Massimo is a great host and entertaining with interesting stories. We enjoyed the evening and will definitely recommend this to our friends visiting Venice.

What a great experience! A small group of strangers met on a bridge in Venice. We were whisked through a few alleyways to the home of our host, Massimo who had been working through the day to prepare the delicious feast that awaited. A few get to know you's and we were in to the feast: Scallops in a tomato based sauce a mixed plate of fresh anchovies, cod mousse and salad with homemade foccacia fresh lagoon fish seafood strozapetti (amazing!) Tiramisu The quality of the food was up there with the best we had in Venice (ate at some very well regarded restaurants). Massimo is a great host. Telling stories of family, and adventures. The best part of a magnum of his grandfathers wine was consumed. A delicious cabernet franc. and 6 courses had us rolling out of there, full as fools. I'd highly recommend a night with Massimo.
