    Dear Michela,
    I have been meaning to write and thank you since our dinner on Easter Saturday, 4 April.
    It was WONDERFUL! We all agreed at the end of our week it was easily the best meal we had in Italy and your professional manner and service was fantastic. The overall favourite dish among us was the ravioli with sage butter - I tried it at a restaurant later but it was nowhere near as good as yours!
    Grazie Mille,
    Rachel

    PS I hope the pause in the middle of dinner to settle the children and didn't delay the rest of your evening too much!


    Dear Andrea and Michela,
    Thank you for an absolutely wonderful dinner. It was truly a high point of our week in Tuscany. It is so meaningful to have an experience such as your lovely dinner and share in the culture and food indigenous to the Tuscany area.
    Warm regards,
    Jackie and Gil, Ann and Bill DeVries

    We would definitely recommend taking advantage of the chefs visit, a pleasure meeting Andrea and an excellent 4 course dinner and good value for money.

    Buongiorno Andrea
    Thanks a lot for your assistance on my celebration in Villa Sornano. It was of great pleasure and the buffet was excellent. The cake was also extraordinary:)
    Thanks a lot for being a part of making my day special.
    Now we are back in Norway to about 15 deg and cloudy..
    All the best to you and Michaela
    Kind Regards,
    Solfrid

    Hi Andrea and Michela,
    We have just returned to New Zealand after our holiday and I wanted to write and say thank you again for the fantastic meal you cooked us!
    Everyone thought it was delicious and it was a very special night for us all.
    You did a great job, the food was perfect and you cleaned up spotlessly.
    The cianti was also very nice and the rest of it was quickly drunk the following day!
    Is there any chance of getting your recipe for Tuscan Chicken? It was amazing and I’d love to try cooking it here at home in NZ.
    Thank you once again and I hope things are going well for you both.
    Ciao!

    Excellent food and friendly service made the night memorable - not a 'fiasco' at all. Fabulous, and the children enjoyed their desserts too.

    Excellent meal, true Tuscan food, fantastic friendly service. Couldn't be faulted. Highly recommended.
    Womack Family

    Thank you for such a great dinner. Our children enjoyed watching you make the food.
