    Francesco created a mouthwatering meal for our anniversary. An incredible risotto and delicious pear and ricotta desert dish, He is a very skilled chef worthy of praise and admiration. I look forward to welcoming him back to our home soon.

    It was a delight to have Francesco chef for a dinner party of 8 at my home. Francesco is friendly and engaged with my guests well while providing us with a relaxed, unintrusive and delightful dining experience. We discussed a couple of changes to the menu and he catered well for my vegetarian guests. Would definitely book him again.

    The food was very varied and absolutely delicious. Especially the gin infused salmon and the lemon tart. Francesco was very prompt and it was a pleasure to have him cook for us.

    Francesco was amazing! From the short notice I gave him, he was on top of it. The event was outstanding, the food was incredible. He cooked for 25 of us and every dish he did was perfect. I would definitely use him again for an event in the future and will tell everyone about him!!!!
