I explore the countryside, read, play with my dogs and do researches on old Italian recipes to adapt them to the modern life that requires light and healthy dishes and dream of South Africa and Namibia where I have spent wonderful long spells fishing on the Okavango river cooking on camp fires and learning to spot the zodiac in the sky. I also teach Italian cooking at my own place, at The Cooking Alley school ( former Jogwan ) in Quarry Bay and at Pantry Magic in Sheung Wan.
First of all I was thankful that Fiorenza took on our booking so last minute. (The morning of) The location itself was way out of our usual whereabouts so it was nice to be at a quaint part of Hong Kong. We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and Fiorenza's hospitality. The food was a homemade affair and absolutely delicious. My friend who doesn't like the HK style creamy carbonara loved the one that was served - an authentic Italian recipe without all the cream. The chicken was tasty and she makes very generous portions; enough for us to take some home too! We liked that there wasn't fancy side plate decorations and presentation but authentic home style cuisine that we thoroughly enjoyed. We also had time to interact with Fiorenza as well as privacy to ourselves in her warm and welcoming living room. Thank you for such a wonderful meal.
The host is very nice, warm, and knowledgeable lady who has a real talent in cooking. We enjoyed the food and the conversation which makes the dinner a perfect relaxing time. Would definitely revisit! Thanks!
My daughters say "GO HERE IF YOU LOVE FOOD and LIKE EATING!" My kids took a cooking class and made gnocchi. They loved it.
I took 7 of my friends here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a three course meal. We were able to enjoy a great night uninterrupted by servers and not having to worry about serving anyone. We were served and served well. The food was light and beautiful. Sicilian chicken, buretta pasta was fresh and a variety of bruschetta with veggies. She is a true Italian gem in this village. I highly recommend to treat yourselves.
I had the pleasure to dine at Fiorenza's table with my friends and my family a couple of times already and we had a great time. The ambience is nice and very quiet and the food really delicious. I'm Italian so I have really enjoyed the familiar taste of home dishes not commonly found in HK. The prices are all very reasonable and I would definitely recommend it to everybody! Well done Fiorenza, I will see you soon.
The food was good and cooked as my mom would have cooked it. We enjoyed not only the flavors of the real Italian dishes but also the interesting conversation with Fiorenza and her knowledge of the ingredients. Overall an excellent experience to be repeated.
my first dinner in a private house was great. Fiorenza's house is very clean and welcoming. The food is just wonderful !!!! My family and I enjoyed the whole ambience and experience very much. The food was simply beyond expectations. Fiorenza is also a very friendly and sweet loving host and we had a very pleasant evening. Highly recommend her kitchen to everyone!!!!!
