Unique and Enjoyable
, Oct 2019
We were met by the chef (Lorenzo) at the water taxi station and walked with him to his (nearby) home. Upon arrival we were greeted by another group of visitors that were in the process of making the evening meal (they had signed up for the chef's cooking class). The food was great and it made it especially memorable sharing the evening with Lorenzo and his other visitors.
Amazing Meal!

If you're looking for an authentic Italian meal, Lorenzo is your man! He met us at the specified location on the confirmation and walked us over to his home. Upon arrival, he had appetizers and wine ready to be served. We chatted the entire time and ate so much amazing food. He creates all sorts of variations to suit each of his guests. Come to find out, he makes something different every day and even teaches cooking classes. This is a MUST for any foodie lover! Thank you again Lorenzo!

We had to meet our guide at a church. We showed up early and it started to pour down rain. That added to the experience. We arrived at the Palace and we were greeted by the owners. The table setting was very nice. Everything was so old and so beautiful. The host and hostess were very congenial. The food was delicious. All cooked in her very small kitchen.

This was a good experience but had difficulty in sorting out times and then they were late meeting us .Then when we got to the palace although we had said we spoke little Italian the hosts spoke no English so things were a little difficult.Also we were with another family of German people who had booked it for a birthday treat so we did rather feel we had intruded on their occasion.But for all that the hosts were very welcoming and laid on a wonderful traditional meal which was super and extremely tasty.
Chef Santina and her husband...

Chef Santina and her husband Georgio were very hospitable. Chef Santina cooked a lot of yummy Venetian dishes for us, baked dessert, and also served us white wine and limoncello. The only problem was, there was no interpreter! So you can imagine how frustrating it was for all of us!

Organisation and communication from the company of this trip was excellent, however, the weather was not : Snow blizzard suddenly came and my sister and I were stuck as to how we were to meet our host's husband. Amazingly, through the thick snow and slippery conditions we were met and taken to the gorgeous palace. Each dish and drink was divine, our hosts were most hospitable, welcoming and kind. We cannot thank our hosts enough for such a memorable dinner and wonderful conversation. My sister suffered a nosebleed from the long flight and our host without any hesitation went and promptly provided assistance. Even after our dinner our host walked us back using the shortest and safest way back to our hotel due to the icy conditions. I cannot stress enough that you would be missing out if you did not experience this wonderful event. We would easily rate this 10 stars.

This was the best, most unique dinner of our stay in Venice. Our host couple were fantastic - very warm and friendly. The meal was AMAZING, but the highlight was dining with them in their fantastic private home on a canal. I would definitely do this again.
