Philippe is extremely professional and experienced. His food was amazing with authentic products. Highly recommended!
I wanted to surprise my guests and I certainly did. The mushroom risotto and truffle was spectacular.

What a treat to enjoy Leo's cooking! We'll be repeating the evening for sure.
At first it was a bit strange to have a stranger in our kitchen, but we soon connected with Toni and the both the dinner and evening were incredible. The food was spectacular, especially the risotto…
The best experience with food I've had in 2016. The Chef spent 6 hours at home to make everything a success.
Congratulations on such good service! I have become your very own commercial, I cannot recommend you enough.
