    An amazing moment shared with very nice persons!
    Max and his girlfriend Lisa, welcomed us in a very warm atmosphere, like old friends.
    Max was waiting for us on time at the meeting point he suggested in St Marco piazza, which is very close to his place.
    Max and Lisa live in a typical old fashioned style Venitian palazzio, in a very beautiful and typical neighborhood.
    We felt at home in their dining room, and they were cooking in front of us several typical Venitian dishes, such as fried fish, sardines with onions and... secret, but really delicious, pasta with seafood, cooked squids on the stove with their ink and presented in a round loaf ciabatta type, original and very very good!
    Of course with white wine from Venitie, and some desserts to finish the dinner!!
    I strongly recommend Max's place to share lunch, dinner or a drink and above all to spend a very nice time with someone who really knows Italy and Venice!!
    Enjoy Max hospitality!

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Massimo. It's one of those expericences you can never forget... Food, ambiance, Massimo + Lisa, stories, Thanks to Massimo who really worked a lot for our diner to make sure everything was perfect... and it was. We decided to celebrate my father's 70th birthday and needed everything to be special !

    We arrived in that beautiful courtyard with olive trees and an old well where a nicely dressed table with 3 lit chandeliers set the mood for a fun and unique night.

    I have to talk about Massimo first because such a happy and generous person will already make your exepirence a great happening ! He is a true man of the sea He cooked like a chef to offer us the real italian way of dining: entry, primi, secondi, main... He managed to cook for us fresh bread, fresh pastas, fresh shrimps, fresh squids, peppers, tarts and great sarde in saor ( real seaman's food )... all this right on time, hot and sometimes even delivered by the second floor's window attached to a rope... very charming ! ( special thanks to Lisa, the girlfriend who also contributes a very great deal to make all this possbile )

    I will return to Massimo's and will be sending people anytime possible knowing they will get what we all want from that kind of experience: Meeting locals, fresh local food, private places to visit and a great captain to lgiht everything up... that is Massimo.

    Cheers from all our family !!!
