Gio's love of food began at an early age, as he helped his grandmother in the kitchen of her restaurant. She taught him all the secrets of genuine and authentic Italian cooking, passed down from generation to generation. Most pertinently, he learned the importance of sourcing the freshest ingredients and its centrality to Italian cuisine. Since moving to London, he worked as a chef in several well-respected Italian establishments. Now, he is more passionate than ever about producing his speciality hand made pasta dishes for his patrons. He is not only an expert in Italian food, but he also has a diploma at Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in London, where he have been studying french cuisine. Recently he took a course in Italy with the famous Gualtiero Marchesi, for him the "father of modern cuisine, and today he is a proud member of the slow food organization in Uk, he is also one of the few chefs that are member of the slow food Chef Alliances. Gio is studying to become a master of wine after achieving a diploma as a Sommelier from the Italian Sommelier Association. The perfect way to enjoy a great meal is with great wine and Gio can recommend bottles to perfectly accompany the menu at a range of prices. Read all Hide

All our guests enjoyed the food and presentation. GIo explained each course and was very flexible with the menu
We had a fantastic evening. Was a real treat, felt like celebrities for a night. Food was delicious, presentation too added a bit of glam, and Gio was lovely and gave us some really interesting context and background on the dishes.
You test parfait ! Merci beaucoup . Magnifique chef
Gio was very flexible and the food was excellent!
Firstly, Gio stepped in as a replacement the night before but was more than happy to take on the original menu but with the added bonus of tweaking it to play to his strengths.
We weren't disappointed. Gio turned up, was exceptionally polite, friendly and enthusiastic which is exactly what you want. We hadn't used this service before so weren't sure what to expect, but the 6 of us were all mightily impressed. The food was to a very high standard indeed, each course being explained in detail but not too much as to be over the top. Gio was more than happy to field questions along the way, of which there were plenty!
And when all was finished, the table was clear and the kitchen was clean and clear....just the ticket!
great service and really fun way to dine in. would defo recommend.
Gio was fantastic. His food was delicious and he made the evening a great experience for us all. I have already recommended him for our next family event.
Top all around
Food was absolutely delicious. Gio was both professional and friendly, creating a perfect balance in ensuring a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Mum had a fantastic birthday meal. Would highly recommend.
What a lovely evening we had and Gio was wonderful. Very professional, always smiling, genuinely enjoyed cooking, food delicious, help with pairing the wine. I can't say enough great things about the experience. It was a top notch evening and enjoyed by all. Thanks for making it special.
Everything was great!
The lunch went very well! Thank you for everything.
Chef Gio was an extremely knowledgeable chef - we loved hearing about the history of dishes, and it was an even bigger bonus that he is abstained sommelier as well so was interested in and could tell us about the wines he had recommended to us. We had a really good evening and some great food. Thank you Gio!
Gio provided an excellent evening to our family. a couple of our guests are fussy eaters and before the meal we spoke and he very kindly agreed to swap out some of the parts of the dishes. The food he prepared was outstanding and the family all commented how much they enjoyed the food. We also enjoyed hearing about how he prepared the dish and how he had tailored it to his regional roots. He managed to make his way around our kitchen with no need for questions and left it cleaner than when he arrived. Thank you very much, we hope to see you again soon!
Gio was great. Not only was he a good chef. He was also organised, clean and extremely personable. He was a fantastic addition to the event.
Chef Gio was amazing. he presented each course and provided some useful information on the food.
He had great personality and everyone was thrilled with the whole experience
What a fantastic evening. Gio settled in and was the perfect host, interacting with us but also leaving us to enjoy a wonderful stress free evening. Very impressed with his cooking and presentation, much better than any local restaurant and so nice to be able to relax at home!! Will definitely be seeing him again :)
Gio is an absolutely incredible chef; we all agreed that his three dishes were some of the best we had ever tasted. The seabass was divine, the risotto was rich and creamy but not especially heavy, and the panna cotta was to die for. Gio explained quite a bit about each dish he served and was a wonderfully laid-back, charismatic guy. We are already wondering what we can book him for next!
It was great all around!
Gio arrived on time - extremely nice and personable chef. We had a chat with him and he made us some drinks too and also brought some wine he recommended I couldn't find in time. The food was delicious, he explained all of the courses and as an anniversary present to my parents they were extremely impressed. I would thoroughly recommend Gio to anyone looking at using his services.
Chef Gio was fabulous. The meal was just as we hoped it would be, light and tasty. Gio was very unobtrusive and yet is clearly passionate about the food; his descriptions of each course were great. The kids absolutely loved his fresh pasta. I would definitely recommend Chef Gio and hope to use him again soon.
Chef Gio was amazing. The initial menu called for veal but as my guests did not eat veal he quickly re-worked it to include a beef starter, a riossotto saffron dish as a main.
He arrived, like a true gentlemen, right on time, had everything prepared for 8pm and gave all the guests an introduction to the food being prepared and a personal story which made the food taste all the better.
We were also able to sample some fresh pasta made by him which was excellent, the beef starter was divine, the rissotto was fun, light and a beautiful color. The dessert was the best part! It was the chef's family recipe and was an all round hit. I would highly recommend this chef!
Did i mention he left my kitchen cleaner then it was and didn't mind answering all our questions :)
We had an excellent evening.
The chef was very friendly and made the night very interesting and enjoyable. The meal was very good but disappointed that we had no potatoe dish with the main course. I will always remember my 60th birthday thank you Gio!
Gio is a really pleasant and personable chef and the food was good (but not outstanding)!
Gio was lovely and professional, and we enjoyed his description of each course as he was serving, and he did a great job clearing up. The food was all good, particularly the beef which was delicious, and the mushroom appetiser and burata starters were very tasty too. Minor points- the pastry was undercooked on the dessert and the polenta was a little bland. I would thoroughly recommend the service and Gio for a special occasion.
Our evening was fantastic. We will differently book him again in the near future.
Booking was easy and straight forward, and the whole experience was great. Gio was thoroughly professional and struck the perfect balance between being friendly and quietly unobtrusive. He was right on time and left the kitchen immaculate at the end.
Having a chef cook dinner for us in our house was absolutely wonderful! It was a present for my partners 30th birthday from his friends.
Gio was extremely professional but very easy to talk to. His passion for food was very obvious and he gave us great cooking and restaurant tips! We will definitely be trying a few of his suggestions. He wasn't protentious either- he said the best mozzarella he's found for pizza he makes at home is from Morrisons! Definitely going to try that one.
Food was prepared with no fuss but great attention to detail. Good portions!
Highlight was definitely the shallot sauce that came with the steak. Absolutely incredible! And the steak was cooked to perfection. Quite impressive saying he was using our rubbish ikea pots and pans!
Everything was left cleaner than it was before despite our protests for him to leave the washing up.
Overall a really exciting and fun experience, I'd recommend Gio to everyone!
Absolutely incredible service and a memorable evening. Aside from the excellent food, the description and walkthroughs of each dish took the overall dining experience to new heights.
Highly highly recommended!
Wow wow wow we were soo impressed with the whole experience what a wonderful chef he was.. explaining what things are and such delicious food, thanks for make this such an experience for my mum on Mother's Day.
Gio provided us with the most wonderful evening of delicious food in our own home in celebration of my husband's birthday. We could not fault his professionalism, efficiency and talent. Will certainly book again!
I enjoyed the dining experience overall, the chef was very professional and excellent cooking, and very pleasant. Great explanations about each dish as well. Personally I think just being two people at home with a chef was a bit awkward, would have been more fun with more people perhaps. I didn't like the marketing team calling me up to chase me for a review during working hours - that was only after 1 review prompt email. It's way too full on, I didn't like being bothered at work for something like this with a call, and the guy started asking me to give reviews directly, without first checking if I have the time. Didn't like it.
The food was amazing and Gio was passionate about every dish on his incredible gourmet taster menu. His descriptions made the food come alive. He was professional yet friendly and relaxed from start to finish.
He is welcome back to our kitchen anytime!
Gio was great, lovely food and a very helpful pleasant guy. We had a great night.
Gio was very charming and we really appreciate that he took the time to explain all the dishes to us. He was also really flexible with the menu and let us make changes. Really great!
Chef Gio is extremely friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend Gio to anybody who is loking for a great experience
The Chef was very professional and informative. He had a passion for food and it showed. Before every course a proper explanation was given that made the experience highly enjoyable. The children had a different menu to us and they thoroughly enjoyed everything too. Nothing was too much trouble for Gio and he was very flexible on timings too.
Gio's dinner party for 14 was brilliant!
Gio was very nice, pleasant and punctual. Overall a great experience!
Great experience, Chef Gio was lovely and very professional. The food was lovely!
Great all round experience. Actually felt bad about not engaging with him as much as we might have done - reflecting how much he let us have our own time around the table without having to play a host role and disappear off for something every few minutes.
Gio was fantastic! He was very accommodating prior to the meal with dietary requirements and menu changes. He arrived on time, was discrete whilst cooking and gave wonderful explanations of the dishes he made. The food was delicious and everyone had a brilliant time. Gio not only cooked, but washed up everything and left the kitchen immaculate. There were 12 of us celebrating my dad's 60th birthday and it worked really well. Would highly recommend Gio. Thank you so much!
A lovely evening overall. The Chef was very passionate and we enjoyed hearing about the background of each course. The Chef was a pleasure to have in our home, very courteous and left the kitchen in an impeccable state. Thanks!
Chef Gio created the perfect evening for us - a surprise birthday dinner. Gio was incredibly professional and a pleasure to speak with. Each course was prepared with care and the whole meal was delicious and to such a high standard. He gave an introduction for each course, about the ingredients or history of the dish. This added a wonderful element to the experience. The kitchen was spotless - he cleaned everything up. We would definitely have chef Gio come again - very highly recommended!
This chef was absolutely fantastic, prompt and the food was delicious and well seasoned. We definitely recommend him and will be using him again. Lovely lovely💕💕💕💕
Gio was great! On time, very friendly and told us all about each course. The food was amazing, especially the steak but all the courses were great and all my guests had their favourites. He even washed up!
I would definitely recommend Gio and the experience
Thank you very much
It was fantastic to meet Gio, and we enjoyed the experience very much. He made himself at home - in a good way - and left the kitchen spotless. A treat!
I honestly could not have wished for better on our first anniversary. Chef Gio was absolutely superb - his polite demeanour, his enthusiasm for the food and ingredients, his attention to detail...he was superb, in every respect. And as for the food, my wife commented that it was up there with the very best meals we've had out, ever. I feel sure we will be asking Chef to come back again. Truly, he was absolutely outstanding. Molto Grazie Chef Gio!
Absolutely delighted with our meal by Gio. The food was delicious and Gio was friendly, polite and incredibly tidy. The kitchen was left spotless and we had a wonderful evening. Would highly recommend Gio and will definitely be using La Belle Assiette again.
Great chef. Friendly. Good food
Fantastic evening, great service and food.
Gio was brilliant he arrived well in time the food and service ,was 10/10 he explained every
dish as it was served the whole evening was a success and i would recommend Gio
without hesitation regards Ianand his Menu From rome to paris was the business
We have a young daughter, and wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary, so instead of the hassle of babysitters and going out we decided on the in-home service, and were very pleasantly surprised. Chef Gio did a wonderful job and made our wedding anniversary extra special. The food was wonderful, it was the best pasta we've ever had (including compared to Michelin starred restaurants), and Gio's warmth and enthusiasm for the food he was cooking was infections and made the evening all the more special. Our kitchen was left absolutely spotless after he left, we couldn't recommend Gio highly enough. It was also reasonably priced.
Great Food, professional, left kitchen clean
Really fantastic food, our guests were talking about it for days after!
This was a prize for a winner of our competition which we ran at www.mollymojo.co.uk and the winner fed back she had the most wonderful time. They felt completely spoilt. Grandma was there too and the 8 course meal was delicious. With a newborn baby it made for some 'quality time' and they could not sing the chef's praises enough.
Gio explained everything about the dishes and where in Italy they came from and as the little one wasn't going down he was also extremely patient and accommodating.
Gio is a 5 star Chef. This was our third experience with La Belle Assiette. All have been wonderful. However, Gio made our daughter’s birthday dinner a truly fabulous occasion. Even though there was a great deal of traffic he arrived promptly. He was both relaxed and professional. All the dishes were delicious and distinctive. The explanations added to our enjoyment. We cannot pick a favourite dish because they were all perfect. Our whole family had a wonderful evening and thank Gio so much for a unique dining experience.
Gio was absolutely wonderful. He made a fantastic meal followed by a gift of homemade limoncello! Everything was seamless and delicious.
Gio was friendly and helpful. He adapted the menu without fuss for some of the diners who had specific requirements. The meal was delicious and very filling. it was great night.
An absolutely fantastic evening. Thoroughly recommend.
I would definitely recommend chef Gio. The food was excellent loved slow cooked beef and starter were amazing. I wanted to surprise my husband and it definitely worked. It was a nice experience for us having someone looking after you. I felt more relaxed and did enjoy my food.
What a fabulous experience, superb food and all round fantastic chef. Gio was a pleasure from start to finish, taking control of the kitchen with the absolute minimum of fuss, creating a stunning meal with surprises throughout, and taking the time to explain his wonderful dishes with a history, provenance and how they were constructed. It was our wedding anniversary, and we would highly recommend Gio in any private dining circumstance.
Gio is obviously passionate about making the experience as best as it can be - he's very enthusiastic as well as a great chef. I strongly recommend him !
I wanted to surprise my wife with something special and all my expectations were met. The food was lovely, rich in flavour but still delicate and light. The fresh pasta was unbelievably good (and we are from Italy so we know what good pasta looks like!). Chef Gio was great in explaining all courses and also sharing some of his stories. All in all, we highly recommend him.
Excellent food. Every course was tasty, well presented and interesting. Gio was also enthusiastic, really seemed to enjoy presenting his food and keen to ensure we were enjoying the experience (which we were!).
We had an amazing meal with our friends. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. The flavours were wonderful. Even our friend who is not keen on fish enjoyed everything and cleared his plate! Geo explained the food he was serving us and his passion for it was obvious. He and his lovely colleague looked after us all evening even opening and serving our wine for us. They also left the kitchen spotless and everything put away in it's place. I would recommend them to anyone! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Gio and his talented assistant cooked and served-up truly genuine and authentic dishes sourced with the freshest of ingredients. Our guests where impressed and we had a wonderful evening. I did not have to lift a finger during the meal (except to pour wine!) and the kitchen was left cleaner than when they started.
Gio prepared two dinner parties for us.
Both times he was very professional and well prepared. The food was delicious and the kitchen left slick and span.
He adjusted the menu to accomodate my requests for the second meal and brought his delightful girlfriend along to help out. They worked together as a great team.
A super experience. Thank you.
Gio Renzo Fioraso is lovely! The food was absolutely amazing and he's such a nice guy. Best valentines day ever ❤️
Absolutely fantastic! Food was delicious and catered to our requirements, very personable experience. Gio was exceptional.
Excellent service. All went very well and smoothly. Would recommend Gio.
Thank you Gio for a fantastic meal, we all loved the food and having you there enabled us to have a very relaxing Christmas.
Very professional and friendly! Gio made the experience amazing! Everyone was so happy with the quality of the food and favours! Thank you! Would recommend and will definitely had another party :)
Everything was perfect: the food, the atmosphere and the professionalism of Chef Fioraso. Me and my boyfriend were really able to enjoy the evening: we didn't have to lift a finger: Che Fioraso cooked for us a beautiful meal, took it to the table and then cleaned the kitchen that was left spotless. It was like having a Michelin starred restaurant brought to your house. Not only was the food delicious but also accompanied by very interesting introduction by the chef who gave us some information about every dish. You could really see his passion: for him it isn't just a job, it is what he loves.
What a fantastic experience - we have a little baby so find it hard to get out so what a great way to celebrate a special day within the comfort of your home. Gio and his assistant were professional, enthusiastic and the food was delicious. We wanted to change the dessert from the original menu and Gio catered to our request without hesitation. One of the nicest Tiramisus we have had in a long time!
The kitchen was left immaculate after they were done cooking. We would definitely recommend and book again in the future! Also love the little touch of sending us the menu in advance for the dining table. Great service overall.
Fantastic food and fantastic service. We had a first class night
Excellent private dining experience. The chef told us a lot of information on all the food and was really fun. The kitchen was left spotless.
Gio, or Joe as we called him, was prompt, friendly, and everything about the evening was fantastic. I can honestly say it was one of the nicest meals we've had, and had our reservations before, but was in fact worth every penny and more, and will definitely be using him again, it was amazing, thank you so much Joe :)
Really gorgeous food cooked by a charming enthusiastic chef. Kitchen left beautifully clean at the end too.
Gio Fioraso prepared a fabulous meal from beginning to end! He surprised us as well with a courgette frappe to go with our Prosecco cocktails before dinner. The started was a totally different and fresh take on Aubergine Parmesan no heavy sauces, just pure nature flavours to tantalize the palette. The presentation for this as for all the dishes was delicate and elegant. The Sea bass Ravioli was fresh and delicious and the portions were generous. In fact one of my guests said " this is like going to a first class restaurant but better"
Gio also served each dish to the guests in a charming manner explaining each course. He cleared away everything and the kitchen was perfect when he left. He and his partner are both delightful and I would not only recommend them but I will certainly use them again. Thanks Gio!
The food was exquisite and virtually everything had been prepared by the chef himself, right down to the tagliatelle and the pastry in the millefoglie. Gio had obviously put a lot of effort into the meal, having been out to buy many of the ingredients earlier that day. The menu was obviously personal to him and each dish came with its own backstory. Additionally, we learned a lot of interesting bits of information that sealed the evening as a foodie's dream. I would highly recommend La Belle Assiette and particularly Gio to people considering this sort of dinner party in the future.
What an amazing chef.
He was so polite and understanding. So happy to tell us all about the wonderful food he had cooked and where it came from. It tasted like I had been transported back to Tuscany and it was heavenly. I certainly hope I can have him again. Perfection!
My star dish is definitely fresh pasta, so I will go with handmade tagliatelle with asparagus and ricotta cream sauce.
Obviously the most important thing for me is the word "fresh": the three ingredients will be fresh tomato, a great base for all the sauce; extra virgin olive oil from Italy and the last one will be Flour 00 - without it, I would be lost.
I am a private chef, because I believe in authenticity and devotion. When I am cooking, I am not just preparing a meal but I am giving away a little piece of myself. Real food is like art: everybody can paint, but few people make a masterpiece.
