He prepared some mouthwatering dishes on board and we got to know some very important tricks about Italian cooking.

To start it he started with the Risotto Di Funghi, done with carnaroli rice with porcini mushrooms. It was so very delicious, cooked right on spot, fresh and delicious.

From the salad we tasted the Octopus Salad, done with taggiasche olives and red onion. The Octopus was so well done, soft and tender and the olives made it more flavorful and delicious.

From the mains we had Bone in Rib Eye Steak.The Beef was served in 2 different flavors, 1 fresh and the other dried for 30 days and then grilled in front of us and served.

I must say the dried ones was so very delicious and I am definitely going back for it.
