Livia(Italian) and Michael (English), between the two of us we speak English (native), Italian, German, Afrikaans, and Dutch.
Michael’s career is based on 35+ years in the hospitality industry.

His understanding of customer service, satisfaction, and people is what turned these restaurants into landmarks. Over and above this he ran another company alongside this which dealt with assisting other restaurateurs with their finances and businesses.
Livia began her professional career by founding a successful interior decorating/home staging company in Cape Town. This gave her many experiences in managing projects, liaising with contractors, and good customer service.
