Massimo created a wonderful Italian special birthday dinner for me in early June. It centered around fabulous vegetarian & seafood appetizers, a fabulous artichoke & parmesan salad, gnudi with sage & butter sauce, as well as a wonderful striped bass over chickpeas, followed by a ricotta tart. Massimo worked with me on the menu creation. He was right on time preparing the meal in a rented cottage kitchen, with his wife providing sous-chef assistance. While we enjoyed our meal with a few friends, the kitchen was cleaned and left spotless. Wonderful experience, highly recommended. I will certainly hire Massimo again for another memorable dinner experience.

We had a group of friends for my wife's special birthday dinner. Our expectations were very high because we love to eat and I am a very good cook as well. From beginning to end Chef Massimo hit home runs all night. Chef Massimo is a master in the kitchen. We were all very delighted and very well fed!
