I hired Chef Tola as a gift for my wife. Words cannot describe how incredible and talented he is. His knowledge is amazing, the food was delicious, and the price was great. I have already hired him again for a future dinner. If you are looking to hire personal Chef. You should definitely hire Chef Tola.

We had a terrific dinner with Francesco. He was very professional but very personal in our interactions with him. It is easy to see his passion for his craft. The food was simply excellent. From the salad where the olive oil took the word "salad" to the next level, to the smoky potato soup that made you wonder how that much flavor could be in one bowl, and to red snapper that makes you wonder why fish hadn't been made this way before. And the tagliatelle? Holy moly, the best Bolognese you will ever have! Beginning to end, a great experience and a wonderful evening. If Francesco performs his magic for you, you will enjoy yourself and have a meal to remember. Thank you, Francesco!

Since indoor dining is shutdown in Michigan I had to come up with a creative idea for my husband’s birthday. I thought about renting an igloo at a restaurant, but the minimum was ridiculous regardless of your party size and honestly who wants to have dinner in 30 degree weather? Not me, so I decided I would bring a chef to us and that’s when I found Chef Francesco Tola based on reviews on thumbtack. I’m so glad I did! Chef Francesco Tola was absolutely amazing. He responded quickly to my request to plan a dinner for two for my husband’s birthday. He was very accommodating with the arrangements and gave us exactly what we wanted. He arrived early and went straight to work. He did everything from cooking to serving to removing & washing our dishes. We opted for a five course traditional Italian dinner. It was beyond delicious! You can tell he takes extra care when selecting the freshest ingredients. Everything was cooked perfectly. The pasta was the best I’ve ever had. The hamachi fish melted in your mouth and was flaky on the outside. He made his own vinegar and used olive oil from Italy for his very flavorful vinaigrette. You can definitely tell he is passionate about his cooking, because it shows. We could have not asked for a better evening and would highly recommend this very talented chef. My husband said it was the best birthday gift. Thank you, chef!

I hired Francesco for my fiances birthday dinner and it was amazing from start to finish. My fiance couldn’t believe we had a private chef over. Francesco was amazing, early, super clean, and cooked amazing food! We would 100% have him over again! We had a 5 course meal and the flavors of every dish were amazing! Thank you so much Francesco!!

Chef Francesco cooked a 5-course meal for my husband's birthday, and it was delicious! He was responsive, professional, courteous and came up with a great menu for our dinner to make it special. The food was amazing, and he did a thorough job cleaning up when he was finished. From start to end I had a very positive experience with Chef Francesco and highly recommend him.
