The night that Filippo and Andri came to our rented villa was one of our best nights in Tuscany. We were a group of 4 families (including 8 children, aged 2-10) and the planning process leading up the meal was seamless and pleasant. The meal itself was perfect - they graciously accommodated the non-meat eaters in our group, and the result was some of the best food any of us had in Tuscany. It was creative, fresh, and elegantly plated and served. When at our villa, Filippo and Andri graciously and patiently worked around our children; their flexibility, positive energy and enthusiasm contributed greatly to our wonderful experience. Finally, the value for money of this experience was phenomenal - they could easily get away with raising their prices!


Filippo and Ingrid gave us a wonderful cooking lesson in the comfort of our own villa! Both adults and children alike were encouraged to participate, so everyone had a great time. We had a vegetarian in our group, which they easily accommodated within the menu. The meal itself was delicious! I would definitely recommend the Eatalianist for a memorable Tuscan cooking experience.


Dear Ingrid and Filippo, Thank you so much for the delicious meal you made for 16 of us at Villa Eleanora on October 23rd. The food you prepared was excellent, and we all enjoyed a very special meal. We were impressed by your efficiency and the beautiful way you presented everything. It was the best meal all of us had in Italy and will be remembered as a highlight of our holiday. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others and we wish you all the best for the future.

MESSAGGIO DA: Sarah & Scott

Thanks so much Ingrid and Filippo for a great dinner at Toretta Monaldeschi last week. We had not used the services of a private chef before and were thoroughly impressed. Your service ran very smoothly from menu discussions online to the delivery of a very tasty meal. Ingrid & Filippo were also very tolerant of our 6 month old daughter who decided to delay proceedings for a while. We were also thrilled to find the remaining Tiramisu in the fridge which was yummy. All round a great evening and easily the best meal of our holiday - thank you.

MESSAGGIO DA: Merce Carroll

Filippo prepared the best meal we had during our vacation in Italy! We were looking for a chef to come prepare a meal for our group of 10 at our rented house and Filippo prepared the most delicious 6 course meal for us. Every course was plated beautifully and the table service was impeccable. They also accommodated special diet needs of our group with no problem. The preparation and quality of the food reflected the local flavors perfectly. Highly recommend the Eatalianist!

Dear Ingrid and Filippo, Thank you so much for the very special birthday meal you cooked for our family at the villa Casale Belforte. It was such an amazing and very special evening with stunning food, hospitality, wine and a chance to experience fine food from Umbria. Every attention to detail was given by you both, such a dynamic couple. We wish you all the best in your business. You deserve lots of success. Geoff & Amanda


The meal we cooked with the Eatlianists was one of the best I had during my entire week in Tuscany. I can't wait to try my new skills at home and look forward to many return visits.

We enjoyed meeting such a charming couple, being shown how to cook lovely food such as courgette flowers in batter and having truffle treats among others. We have now made our first genuine risotto and it tasted really good. Thank you Ingrid and Filippo - we'll never forget you.

MESSAGGIO DA: Phillip and Tracy Pacetti

Our wedding week began with a delightful welcome dinner, next evening was a wonderful collection of regional wines. But, 30 September 2011 marks the date for the most exceptional 5 course meal I have ever experienced. Each dish was divine in taste and presentation. Ingrid and Filippo kept our 22 guests moaning with every bite. And, if you are lucky enough to meet them you will know their food is prepared with love. Thank you for making our wedding week something we will never forget!

Desidero esprimere a nome di tutta la mia famiglia i miei più sinceri e ringraziamenti per tutto quello che avete "creato" durante il nostro soggiorno toscano. Soddisfare 15 Stern, tre volte al giorno, non è un'impresa da poco, eppure, ci siete riusciti, e per questo vi sono infinitamente grato!
