What my guests say about me

Michelangelo knows how to cook a proper, authentic Italian meal. Traditional dishes are simple, but when done right, it is filled with class and flavor.

My favorite dish was the homemade gnocchi. You could taste the labor of love.

He offered seconds - I wish I could have eaten more but my stomach was too full.

The freshly made strawberry sauce was so delicious, I nearly wanted to drink the bottle.

Instead, I drizzled it over my panna cotta multiple times.



Extra special experience never found in a restaurant.

Lots of special care was much appreciated.

I'll be back.




Chef Michelangelo was awesome! Such a fun experience for my girlfriend and I.

Making delicious pasta with insightful tips and stories not to mention the sheer generously of Chef Michelangelo's character.

He made the entire morning a birthday she will never forget and it was so fun!




Awesome night with Chef!

His food is clean, fresh and perfectly prepared to my desired menu.

Highly recommend him!!!

He cooked for a sit down Italian meal for 12. Amazing.




Chef Michelangelo was very patient, helpful, and knowledgable.

As we were preparing the food, he would tell us about the food history and why it should be prepared this way to bring out the best flavors.

The workplace was clean and comfortable.




What a fantastic experience!

Chef Michelangelo was enthusiastic, fun, and an excellent teacher.

The pasta was so delicious!

Would recommend his class to anyone!



I enjoyed every moment leaning from chef Michelangelo.

He has a great personality that make us fell comfortable.

I will for sure recommend him to my friends.

Thanks Chef Michelangelo for your patience on teaching me.




My daughter and I attended this class, it was a lot of fun and very helpful.

I can make pasta now!




Michelangelo was great! Very patient and a very good teacher!




Michelangelo was so great! He had a fun personality and great sense of humor.

His home was very welcoming and clean. I took my boyfriend as a surprise for Valentine's Day. Tons of parking outside of his apartment. We started right on time. There was one other couple and a single in the class with us.

We spent the majority of our time making the dough and the pasta itself. Michelangelo had prepared the ravioli mixture, sauces and dessert.

It was so much fun and SO delish.

Would love to do this again with a few close friends. The small group setting is nice and intimate!

Can't recommend Michelangelo enough!!




It was wonderful to learn pasta-making with Chef Michelangelo.

I recommend this very highly.




Chef Michelangelo was fantastic!

My twin sister and I took his pasta-making class for our birthday. We had so much fun.

Chef was warm and welcoming, and had a great sense of humor. He was also a great teacher.

The pasta was excellent, and we left feeling like we could implement the techniques easily on our own.

I highly recommend this to anyone looking to learn something new, and have a great time doing it!




Such an amazing experience.

The food was amazing, the experience of having him come cook was even better. Made our night perfect.

Worked with us to create the perfect menu, the food was like we were eating in Italy.

My husband and I throughly enjoyed everything about Chef Michelangelo.

He had a great personality, great sense of humor, and was clean, neat, and extremely professional.

We definitely plan on utilizing him again in the very near future.




Chef Michelangelo cooked a delicious traditional Italian meal. Not only did he explain what made it traditional, but he explained his culinary background. Chef Michelangelo not only provided us with an amazing meal, but he was also the entertainment! I highly recommend booking with Chef Michelangelo!




What's not to say about Chef Michelangelo?! I loved his personality the minute I heard his voice. He is full of enthusiasm and genuine love for food. The meal he coached us to make was the best I've had all year (fresh-made spinach and ricotta ravioli with a butter sage sauce). Michelangelo is very proud and passionate about his authentic Italian cooking style and really teaches you to cook with the flavors you love most, understanding that everyone has a different pallet. He is patient and encouraging, I'd recommend him to anyone. Truly a pleasure!




We booked Chef Michelangelo's pasta making class in Los Angeles and it was the best cooking class that I have attended so far. We made tagliatelle and ravioli from scratch, prepared several sauces, and finished up with a delicious creme brulee. If you are in Los Angeles and are looking for a fun and educational cooking class with an exceptional chef, I can definitely recommend chef Michelangelo.




I spent the best time Ever! Michelangelo have amazing cozy apartment and outstanding personality.

I was enjoying every course and my plate was always empty. His chicken was so soft, it melted in my mouth.

Thank you so much. Highly recommend.




Great food and in great company! I went to Chef Michelangelo's home with my sister for his Taste of Italy dinner, and I had a great time.

Chef Michelangelo is extremely friendly and charismatic and most importantly he had delicious food.

I would encourage anyone to go and I will certainly be back.




Food was amazing, real Italian food. Atmosphere and host great!

We made 2 new friends as well. So if you are looking for authentic Italian meal, eat to Michelangelo.




Michelangelo was incredible - one of the best dining experiences of my life. He was a pleasure to talk with and made incredible food that was healthy!

Would love to have a Michelangelo meal every week!!!




The food was perfectly prepared and so delicious! Chef Michael Angelo was a great host. My three sons (aged 12,14 & 22) were in attendance as well as my husband and I. Every course was quickly devoured by all of us!

Every course was absolutely delicious, my personal favourite was the fresh from scratch prepared Gnocchi, melt in your mouth!

Thank you Chef Michelangelo for a perfect end to our day!




Michelangelo was fantastic, friendly , helpful - positive and his food is incredible - we will ask for him again for sure :)




Chef Michelangelo and his sous chef were great. We had them prepare an Italian feast for us and we requested they make it with true authenticity to replicate what we would find in Italy. They gave us that experience and much more. The food was very flavorful and fresh. From the burrata cheese to the pastas. The filet mignon melted in our mouths and the tiramisu and sorbeto was a great finishing touch. They were pleasant and made sure we were comfortable and enjoyed the food. I would definitely use him again for my next event.







Michelangelo was a dream to work with from start to finish. His food was fabulous... all of my guests were thrilled with his preparations. He was extremely personable, flexible regarding the items I had for plating, and left my kitchen spotless. I would hire him again without a moments hesitation.




I gave this dinner as an anniversary gift to a very special couple. Having no prior experiences with this, I had my reservations. Chef Michelangelo was very prompt in his correspondences with me and very accommodating to my requests. He was very easy to contact and made wonderful suggestions.

Because this was a gift, I did not have an opportunity to taste the delectable-looking selections but based on the rave reviews I received from the recipients of my gift, Chef Michelangelo did not disappoint. They thoroughly enjoyed the Risotto de Mare and described the Tiramisu as, "It was like eating a cloud."

I am truly grateful to Chef Michelangelo for providing such a great experience to a very deserving couple. It is without hesitation that I would recommend his services to any willing participant. Thank you very much.




Michelangelo was great! He arrived on time. He was very professional and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented! I recommend him and would definitely hire him again.




Professional, on time, perfectly executed and the food was AMAZING!




Michelangelo is great! My family had a good time, a great mother's day dinner in the comfort of our home, and the over-all experience was amazing!




I purchased a dinner as a gift for a friend who was recently married. From the very beginning, Michelangelo was amazing. His communication was superb. The options he provided were plentiful. His wine recommendations were spot on. His preparation was impressive. He was on-time, friendly, and totally professional. I was not able to enjoy his cooking but my friend said that it was amazing. He was totally stuffed by the end and he said that he had never seen his new wife enjoy dinner as much. I have no reservations wholeheartedly recommending Chef Michelangelo. He's the best!




In an intimate dinner party for 6, Michaelangelo was charming, amusing, and very patient with a group of rowdy fantasy chefs who crowded him to watch his preparations. This made for an evening (by design) which was both gratifying to the senses--when the delicious 6 courses were served--and the intellect for those who were serious about the culinary arts! Superb!




I hired him for my husband birthday dinner. We had a great experience. He arrived on time with a great energy and personality. He found his way around the kitchen and quickly went to work. We had 5 yummy courses, I loved the mussel spaghetti and the dark chocolate cake. My husband ate everything on his plate, he loved his meal and also the experience. As a true chef should, he told us about the ingredients and sometimes the origin of dishes. We definitely plan to have him back, when we host a bigger group.




Though my experience didn't follow through with Michelangelo due to my party, Michelangelo was amazing to work with when it came to drawing up a menu for dinner and catering to any specific concerns and needs I/my party had (we're mostly vegetarians). Incredibly fast with replies, great to work with, highly recommend Michelangelo, he's a great person to work with!








Fantastic! Would work with him again any time!




Chef Michelangelo gave us an authentic Italian food experience.

The food exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely dine with him again.

The presentation of the dishes was professionally done, and his kitchen and place were very clean.

I highly recommend him.




Michelangelo was excellent! He was quick to respond, arrived promptly, and was very professional! His food was delicious and had a beautiful presentation. We had his pre-planned menu and it was authentic Italian yummy food! We would highly recommend Michelangelo!




Loved having Chef Michelangelo! He helped me come up with the perfect menu and was very accommodating and super personable. I will definitely use his services again - what a unique experience and a great chef! Also, the food was AMAZING.




This was the first time we had a chef come to our home to prepare a meal. It was a special occasion as we had a total of eight people, four of whom were celebrating December birthdays. We intended this dinner to be a birthday/Christmas gift to our friends and to my wife who is one of the birthday celebrators. Chef Michelangelo was an excellent choice for us. He communicated well and promptly before meeting with us. He met us at our home to plan the meal, taking his time and great care to understand what we wanted to accomplish and make suggestions. He has a great personality, of course, he's Italian! Chef Michelangelo is also very aware of the food he prepares and selects only those ingredients he feels will meet the expectations of him and his clients. He made suggestions for wines that we purchased to pair with the meal. He arrived on time the day of the party and went right to work. He took care of everything, the shopping for food, preparation, serving, timing, and cleanup of the food preparation pots, pans, etc. Chef was very concerned that our dinner party be a success and, in his words, "everything must be perfect". We were NOT disappointed. The meal was wonderful, the time was perfect, and our guests had possibly the most fun dining experience to date.We felt as if we had been transported to Italy and were experiencing an authentic Italian meal. We're all still talking about how good the food was and what a pleasure it was meeting the Chef and enjoying his dinner. We HIGHLY recommend Chef Michelangelo!

Thank you Chef!




Really outstanding food, can confidently say maybe best Italian I've had in Los angeles!! Highly suggested.




Chef Michelangelo was excellent! From the beginning of the process to the end, he was professional, highly organized, on-time, funny and a pleasure to work with. Oh, and his food is really delicious. Authentic italian with lots of love! I highly recommend him!




Chef Michelangelo is truly a master of his craft. 

I was planning a surprise proposal dinner in the backyard of our house. From the very outset Chef Michelangelo was very easy to communicate and plan with. As it was a surprise I couldn’t always pick up the phone. Chef Michelangelo easily transitioned conversations between voice, to text, and email keeping all the details organized. He came out to the house before hand and we sat down and planned the menu. It was great to have him guide me through the creation of a really special menu for my big night.

Although he did mention to me that if the day’s selection of ingredients did not meet his quality standards, we would make last minute changes. I really appreciated this, as at each juncture he took great care to make sure the food would be created to the highest standards.

On the day of, Chef Michelangelo arrived in plenty of time to get prepared and set up. His attitude was uplifting and energetic and I felt relieved to have the dinner in his hands. We worked out the few last details of the night, and everything was perfectly into place.

Once I popped the question and we sat down to dinner (she said yes btw). It was when we were treated to the Chefs sublime culinary creations, one course after the next prepared in authentic Italian tradition. The crescentine fried bread he made us to start was out of this world, followed by pumpkin gnocchi, and the most amazing tender loin. Along with beautiful side dishes and a special berry tiramisu the dinner couldn’t have went more perfectly.

Chef Michelangelo is an exceptional Chef and his client service is second to none. We recommend him 100%.




Michelangelo was amazing and so was the food. Truly authentic Italian with such amazing flavors. The starters wet perfect... especially the polenta crostini with blue cheese! The tuna tartar was so light and perfect with the citrus, the mushroom risotto was to die for.... everybody wanted seconds. The branzino was cooked to perfection. The fruit and the a unique taramisu was the perfect endinh. Truly an amazing meal. Everybody also loved Michelangelo's personality warm and professional.




"Excellent" would not be enough to describe Michelangelo's work! We had a 30 people event with foodies from the US, France and Romania and every single person was delighted with the food! Amazing! Highly recommend!




What a fantastic night!!!

The lasagne was absolutely amazing! It melts in your mouth.

I have a new Italian favorite!

The panna cotta with strawberries was divine... Heaven!

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

You are such a wonderful Chef and very entertaining person to have in the kitchen.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!




Michelangelo prepared a dinner for 5 to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary. He's a delight to experience, very personable, and he shared stories of the food and his growing up in Italy. His food is heavenly. His home made pasta was better than any other home made pasta I've had. It had just the perfect bite and the ragu was delicious. His brushetta transcended simple, moving it to amazing, and we're still talking about it today. His filet mignon was so tender, it melted - not need for steak knives or any type of knife! at all. His salad was dressed with just the liquids from the vegetables, resulting in the freshest salad ever. Throughout the courses, he gave us tips and all in all, we had the perfect evening. I can't wait to do it again!




Great Person and great chef, would HIGHLY recommend Michelangelo.




Had a surprise dinner for my mothers birthday. I live 600 miles away so it was all on description and appearance of the product. Mom was extremely pleased. Hope you can enjoy a meal by Michelangelo.




Michelangelo is a Master Chef!

Precise, perfectionist, creative, good humor!

Meanwhile we were having a wonderful, delicious and exquisite meal, he was always ready to surprise us with an amazing smile.

Thank you Chef!




Michelangelo is the best private chef we've ever experienced.

Everything was sooooo deliciuos.

The polenta and rice were the best that I ever had.

Michelangelo's cooking was amazing. It took me back to Italy. The food was very flavorful. Each course was better than the next.




Michelangelo is more than a talented chef.

He is an amazing host, a super friendly man who brings happiness into your home with a lot of interesting stories about his beautiful country and culinary traditions.
His food? Simply divine! ;-)




Michelangelo is a top chef! My experience has been outstanding. Excellent food, cordial, professional, very enjoyable presence. I did not think one can find this quality of Italian food outside of Italy. As an Italian born, I know that very well! Highly recommended!




We had the pleasure of attending a party catered by Michelangelo, I can't say enough on how delicious and creative every dish was.

My only complaint was that I just wanted more.

Michelangelo you are a great chef and a most wonderful host.




Incredible food taught and prepared by an amazing Chef!




I have worked with Chef Michelangelo and am able to call him a good friend. When I think of outstanding Italians and Italian food I think of Michelangelo! His dedication to his art, knowledge of food and presentation is outstanding. I have had two Home Italian Dinner Parties Designed by Michelangelo. I was also a guest for a private homecooked lunch!

I am happy to report that everyone at the dinner parties were so impressed with Michelangelo. The service was impeccable and he had is pocket watch in view... as to not be delayed or late on any course. From Crostini ~ Antipasti to Primi, Secondi to Dessert and Apertivi ~ It was a night to remember!
