Thank you so much for a wonderful evening! Everything was absolutely amazing! Maddalena had such a memorable birthday. Thank you again for everything you both did! Lovely to meet you both!

All the best, Kim Standish.

Dear Johann and Anna,

Thank you again for cooking for us. The food was amazing and we will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a chef in lake Como!

Merci beaucoup encore. Bien à vous, Ismini & Christina. Varenna, lake Como.

 

 

 

AUGUST 2019

 

Dear Johann & Anna, hope all is well with both of you. Just writing to thank you both again for the most memorable meals we have ever had. We have discussed together as a family and we all agree that if both of you were not there during our vacation it would have been a disaster. We could not imagine how we would ever eat the meals you both created anywhere else. You both were so pleasant and so professional. We have told all our family and friends about you. We miss your cooking and wish you lived in Montreal! We hope our paths cross again someday.

 

Please if ever you need a reference do not hesitate to contact us and will be happy to provide one.

 

Warm regards, Maselli family. Villa Parisi, Lenno, Lake Como.

We are finally back in the US and I wanted to write an email thanking you for all of the food. EVERYTHING was absolutely delicious and you created a table and food that was just so perfect for our wedding. We are so grateful to have found you and that you could share in our special day.

 

If you ever need a recommendation, let me know. We’d be happy to tell the whole world how wonderful you two were!

 

Please stay in touch especially if you ever come to the States!

 

Best, Gina. Villa Podere Brughee, Tremezzo, Lake Como

We were very satisfied with all aspects of the meal. It was easy to order from a very wide selection; the pricing was reasonable and the chef was accommodating. The food was very tasty and the quantities quite large. I would certainly recommend them.

They talk to us on the blog "Kosher like me" dinner with David Lynch. Argegno Lake Como.

 

…Here are some of the highlights: We had our first taste of the regional buckwheat noodles during our first meal together. The chef for the evening went to Milano and purchased kosher chicken for our dinner...

AUGUST 2017

 

...We found the kitchen equally well appointed although not fully utilized by our drink and light snack needs. It was put to better use by Chef Johann and Anna who prepared a memorable and delicious meal served on the terrace. Laura was readily available and helpful before and during our stay. She coordinated with Chef Johann and customized a boat tour for us that we boarded at the villa...

MAY 2016

 

The Private Chef, Johann and his lovely wife from lacenaperfetta.com prepared one of the best meals we have ever had. They arrived around 6 pm and took over. White linen table cloth service, food presentation to rival any US restaurant and every bite was an orgasmic experience!!!!! We had three appetizers, two pastas, Sea Bass or Veal Saltimbocca and finished with an apple pie "Tarte Tatin" with caramel, fresh berries and whipped cream. We all agreed that this was the highlight of our trip. We all felt like we were on the lifestyles of the rich and famous - our private chef in our fantastic lakeside Villa!

DEAR JOHANN, ANNA AND THE REST OF THE TEAM

 

I just wanted to say a massive thanks to all of you for making sure that we had the perfect wedding feast at Villa Navalia on 3rd September. It was truly the best meal I have ever eaten and every single course was tremendous. Both our families loved the food and have been raving about it back here to friends and family. It really was the perfect end to what had already been an amazing day and it far exceeded our expectations. You really did ensure that everything was perfect and setting the table up on the terrace was a great decision on your part. We loved meeting you all and when we met with Louise from the villa the following day we were telling her just how fabulous everything had been with the meal. We would not hesitate to recommend your company in the future. If you have a feedback part of your website then I would be happy to write a glowing review.

 

Thanks again for everything!

L and C M. Tripadvisor villa navalia, Menaggio.
