About Me

Chef Massimo Fedozzi, is a graduate of the Marco Polo Culinary Institute of Genova, Italy. While growing up in Northern Italy, Fedozzi was intimately involved with food from a young age. He learned about pasta and antipasti at his parents’ salumi shops in Genova and delighted in the meals and aromas while his family gathered around the kitchen table. Fluent in English, Italian and Spanish, he was expected to become a translator, but followed his true passion and attended the Marco Polo Culinary Institute in Genova. Fedozzi’s career began in the kitchens of some of Europe’s most renowned establishments including: The Savoy Hotel in London, England; Le Chantecler at the Hotel Le Negresco in Nice, France and Grand The Gstaad Palace, Switzerland. At Ristorante Aladino in Genova, following the step of his mentor Gualtiero Marchesi, Fedozzi became one of the first chefs in Italy to present Nouvelle Cuisine and the youngest Italian Executive Chef.
He always strives to share his enthusiasm for taste and presentation and lives by the philosophy that “THE QUALITY OF INGREDIENTS IS EVERYTHING AND SIMPLICITY OF EXECUTION IS A MUST”.
Before moving to Long Island in 2009, where he opened “Palio Ristorante” in Jericho and “VERO” in Amityville, Chef Fedozzi spearheaded the opening and operations of all back of the house functions as Culinary Director for “I Tre Merli”, “Barolo”, “La Focaccia” and “I Tre Merli Bistro” in Manhattan.
In 1995 he became the Corporate Chef for Jimmy Schmidt in Detroit where he ran the Back of the house operations of Chianti restaurants, Stelline in the Somerset Troy and The Rattlesnake Club.
In July 1997, Massimo was hired by “Sofo Foods” as Spokesperson and Vice President of Research and Development, where he represented the company at major food events and developed recipes for various restaurant chains.
In February of 2000, Massimo joined the culinary team at the Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando, a Loews Hotel, where he focused on authentic Ligurian cuisine.
Five years later, Chef Massimo took the helm of the kitchen of Portobello Yacht Club in Downtown Disney, Orlando. Chef Fedozzi moved to Arlington, VA, where he spearheaded the opening of the Hotel Palomar Roslyn and the Palomar Georgetown with Kimpton Hotel and Restaurants as property Chef. Chef Massimo Fedozzi was recognized with various awards including the AAA Four Diamonds, the Mobil Guide Three Stars and many, many stars from Long Island’s Newsday. Chef Massimo has extensive experience in private cooking for celebrities including the House of Saud, Francis Ford-Coppola, Sylvester Stallone, Madonna, President George W. Bush, VP Dick Cheney, Senator Bill Nelson, Gene Simmons, Sammy Hagar, Mark McGrath, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Robin Williams, and Private Residences, he can easily adapt to different diets and personal preferences considering his large breadth of culinary styles.
Chef Massimo is available to travel if you have the need for Personal Chef services.
“Chef Massimo doesn’t play around; in a sea of Sunday gravy, deep fried cutlets and pizza joints, he is a jutting promontory of satisfaction. Fedozzi puts out the genuine article, bona fide regional Italian cuisine that will make your mouth water like a Pavlovian dog and your head spin like a top. Like a true artisan, he is a passionate soul: a lover of life, and clean, earthy food and flavors, which he masterfully weaves together into a consistently beautiful and delicious finished product”.
“Massimo is not only one of the most creative chefs I have had the pleasure to have worked with, he is also talented with knowing what his clients want and promoting those thing that they don’t yet know they want.
His ideas about reaching the customers are adaptive depending on the market in which he is working. From authentic neighborhood Italian restaurants to large tourist centric establishments, Massimo has excelled in having this customers return again and again.
On a personal note, I have known Massimo since his days working in the Orlando theme park where getting return patrons is quite difficult however not only did the locals go to his restaurant, those visiting the theme park on an annual basis would list eating at Massimo’s as part of the reason they returned.
And, he is a nice guy as well. Go figure! Some guys have all the right things going for them.”
“Massimo is the consummate professional cuisinier and a pleasure to work with. I’ve worked with him on a number of restaurant projects and appreciate his talent, professionalism and communication skills. He can cook; he can dream, and he can take those visions to reality. He’s a creative force steeped in classical technique. Bravo!”
“I have known Massimo for over 25 years. His passion for food, quality, and a combination of Classic Italian and today’s trends including Farm to Table are fantastic. He understands the business side and will provide creative food, understands service and loves to meet guests. Massimo is a proud, capable chef and restaurant professional.”
“When Chef Massimo Fedozzi worked in Orlando, he was one of the top chefs on the circuit. As an editor of visitor and lifestyle magazines, I covered him extensively in the early 2000s when he worked at Portofino Bay Hotel at the Universal Resort. His food, creativity and professionalism were impressive. We were sorry to see him leave.”
“Massimo is the chef with the best tasting food and the biggest heart, which he puts into every dish! For Massimo, food is love!”

  • What can I say except- UNBELIEVABLE. Chef Massimo exceeded our expectations with not only his food, but his company. His wife and him were absolutely wonderful to have in our home, cooking one of the best meals we have ever had. We are a big Italian family, who LOVES FOOD, and when I say the pesto gnocchi was a gift straight from Heaven above, I mean it! every single bite of every part of that meal was delicious. We all had our own favorites and in the end we all agreed- everything was a 10/10.

    We are absolutely recommending chef Massimo to our friends, family, even to random people on the street…. and we will for sure be inviting him back to our home in the near future!!! I highly recommend him. In fact, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else except him and his wife.

  • It became a four course meal for 9, exceptionally delicious, outstanding food, and beautifully presented. The Chef left the kitchen to describe each course and ingredients which delighted the guests. He does not leave the kitchen to pour wine at table, or pass hors d’oeuvres and drinks when guests arrive. He nicely did it for me, but this is not something he ever does. I will be prepared to have someone on hand to do that next time. A memorable evening.

Second was the main course, gnocchi in bolognese sauce with mushrooms. And lastly we had cheese cake with fresh berries and pomegranate sauce all made by the chef. As someone that is well traveled and has been to Italian restaurants all across the world this was by far the best Italian meal I've ever had.

  • Chef Massimo is terrific. He cooked a fabulous meal for a 10-person dinner party and was incredibly professional and kind throughout all stages of the process. He was responsive and worked with me to customize a menu. He was on time, responsible, and totally self-sufficient, leaving me the freedom to interact with my guests. The kitchen was spotless at the end of the meal. i would hire Massimo again without hesitation.

  • The meal was fantastic. Massimo was very flexible and creative creating the menu. He had lots of great ideas and was able to tweak things to make the entire menu gluten free. Great communication throughout. He made the prep for 18 people look effortless. The food was fantastic - from the appetizers through all five courses. Tara, his wife who helped with service did a great job. We definitely plan to use Massimo again and would recommend him.

  • Massimo and his wife Tara were amazing. We held a party last night that set up, executed and concluded without any glitches. The aroma that was coming from the kitchen when I arrived home was amazing. That was only the beginning of what was an tastefully planned night of food, presentation and detailed description of everything we were about to eat. If I were to have to pick my favorite course I would have to say ALL of them. Each course was paired perfectly with ingredients that made each dish another wonderful experience. Massimo’s nearly 40 years of experience in high end restraunts shows in everything he does. Massimo and Tara are very friendly and made cooking another entertaining event for me and my guests to watch. If you are planning an event or special celebration, I would highly Recommend Massimo !!

  • Chef Massimo and his wife were the perfect team to pull off our dinner party hosted in our apartment. We have a very small kitchen and moved the dinner from outside to inside at the last minute, but Chef Massimo was able to adapt without a hitch. The food was delicious, but almost more importantly, Chef Massimo was so hospitable and warm, and took all of the burden off of me and my husband so that we could actually enjoy the evening. We had a few children at the party, and Chef Massimo was great with them. He was also very accommodating to several guests with bad allergies.

    We will definitely consider using Chef Massimo for another event in the future!

I cannot recommend them more highly and cannot wait for my next event to hire him again!

  • Chef Massimo was amazing! Everything went off without a hitch! He was so easy to work with to create the perfect vegetarian menu for my mother’s birthday! His freshly made gnocchi are unbelievably delicious, and my mother is still talking about the cacio e pepe and eggplant caponata! Him and his wife Tara are friendly, professional, and very accommodating I cannot recommend Chef Massimo enough! I can’t wait for another event so that I can hire him again!

He arrived when he said he would, with his wife Tara, and they were both very friendly. The food was incredible - a summer fruit panzanella, freshly made gnocchi in bolognese sauce, and delicious striped bass, along with great veggies. Everyone couldn't stop talking about it the next day. Will definitely have Chef Massimo back in the future!

  • Chef Massimo was great. He arrived promptly with everything he needed. I was having a birthday dinner for my wife with my young kids there. He made a wonderful simple meal for the kids - while my wife and i had a delicious 3 course meal. His gnocchi w meat sauce was awesome. The ingredients were all very fresh - steak, burrata etc. Would definitely recommend him and hire him again. Also a great guy to talk to and get some cooking tips from

  • I had requested a private chef to prepare a dinner for 7 at an Airbnb in NYC for the first night of a Bachelorette weekend. I wanted to be able to hear my friends and catch up without the restaurant BUT I wanted a nice restaurant meal, not take-out.

    I had never heard of Table at Home or used it but it was so easy to use: I received so many proposals from different chefs who were all incredibly helpful, responsive, and offered unique menus and varying price points.

    I ended up going with Massimo and would hire him every night if I could. Massimo was a true professional, friendly but not intrusive, he accommodated last minute requests without issue, he arrived on time, dinner was served on time, and the kitchen was spotless by the time we finished dessert.

    But most importantly - the meal was perfect. The execution, the flavors, and preserntation were all perfect.
    We had a great time and Massimo has sold me on this service.

    • Worked on February 4, 2018
  • Chef Massimo arrived with his wife who assisted him, Tara, and from the start they both were professional, in control and lovely to work with. Under a difficult situation (my dinner party was delayed a full hour), they handled the delayed timing without a hitch, and the dinner party was a tremendous success. The food was superb and all my guests were delighted and complimentary throughout the meal.

    Chef Massimo has a way of combining spices, herbs, sauces and the freshest of vegetables and fish that were a delight to our palate and created a culinary sensation.

    My holiday dinner party was amazing and I credit Chef Massimo and Tara ! Thank you!

  • I cannot say enough about Chef Massimo. He was helpful, friendly, professional and his presentation and cooking was unsurpassed. I am so thankful that I was able to have him make my brother's 60 birthday a success!

    • Worked on March 1, 2018
  • My challange was to host a 6 person dinner party centered around a specific and special Italian wine producer. The bottles were all unique so needed the food and experience to match.

    Table at Home connected me with Chef Massimo who did an amazing job preparing a menu to match our wine selection.

    On our night, Chef was punctual and began his work.

    The course timing worked perfectly and the entire meal was excellent. We were able to fully enjoy the wine and our guests without having to worry about anything.

    It was likhaving a Restaurant in my home.

    Chef also had a wonderful table side manner explaining the courses.

    The night was a total success.

  • Outstanding experience with Chef Massimo! He arrived on time with all the ingredients and made himself at home in our kitchen. He whipped up a memorable dinner for me, my husband and our guests. There were so many highlights from watching him prepare and cook our meal, the best was the made-on-the-spot fresh gnocchi that he boiled for 2 minutes and then smothered in rich and delicious Bolognese sauce. Five stars! I can't wait to do this again.
