It was so fun! Something I’d never think of doing but was given this as a gift and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious!

Chef Max is amazing! His cooking atmosphere is very clean and comforting, and his food even more so. His Basil Fettuccini with Lamb Ragu and Carnaroli Risotto Saffron Infused Baja Shrimp are the best I have had. His Tiramisu and Gnocci al Pesto... Perfezionare!! It was very pleasing getting to know Chef Max and to see him in action.
