Hi everyone! My name is Michela but you can call me Miky! I moved here to Brooklyn from my home town in Brisighella, Italy, right outside Tuscany, after I graduated from University of Bologna. I live in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, with my husband and son, in my husband's grandfather 100 years old house. My prospective of food is ancient and respecful of each ingredient I manage, as my grandparents taught me. I decided to start Eatwith because I want to share a different food prospective of what you are used to see in restaurants in NY. In fact, if you want a “feel like home” experience this is the right one for you. My food is hearty, handmade, and each dish will tell you a different story from my country. If you want to see more about my cooking, or the preparation for your dinner by me, or even if you are a just a foodie, follow me on Instagram @notyourmotherspasta !

What to expect at Michela's place
First time using EatWith and it has officially converted me! Michela’s knowledge and way of cooking was top notch. I was so impressed by all the organic ingredients she used and LOVED seeing fresh herbs coming from her very own garden. Would highly recommend to people who are looking for truly authentic Italian cuisine!
Such a perfect evening!! It truly is a slice of Italy, in Brooklyn. From the al fresco dining table, set up in the back garden and surrounded with white lights, to the through fully paired cheeses and wines, it was fantastic. The pasta was outstanding, as was the filet mignon that followed. They truly treated us like family, and we will definitely go back, as well as recommending it to friends!
Michela and her husband were kind hostess and took care of all the small details. We set in their beautiful backyard and the food was great. The Italian cheese was delicious but best dish was the fruit tiramisu desert, served in personal jars. I highly recommend the experience. We had a blast. Thank u guys fit having us!
