TASTE “CREATIVE” FOOD

    Bettina Holm

Riccardo is an incredible Chef! His Italian background together with so many years abroad have allowed him to develop a unique combination of presentation and culinary skills. I strongly recommend Riccardo for any needs you might have.

       OLIVIA CASA MONDAY

Riccardo has been catering all my parties and all my dinners for the last 4 years. His talent is incredible, he has been able to create something new for all my guests every time and I have always received compliments. We also created the so-called "A Tavola Club" in Denver, where 6 to 8 couples used to get together once a month for a gourmet dinner, and every month Riccardo prepared a special menu for us... everyone has always wished to come back for more of his dishes!
