My name is Flavio Miccoli.
I am an Italian guy grown in Imola (Italy), Known for F1 Race, but famous to be the Core of Good Italian Food as well.
Infact, It is located in County of Emilia Romagna where, well-known and Exported in whole world Italian Product as Wines, Parmigiano, Lasagna, Piadina, Hams (Mortadella, Row ham ec..) and much more, had birth.
I have always had a passion for cooking and I delight to cook by myself and experiment new dishes. Is from here that, with my twin brother Gabriele, We had a brilliant Idea about an Italian Gourmet Food & Beverage Project: "EATALIAN DREAM".
Me and my twin at Restaurant
It would be an original, warm, friendly and unique place in wich offer tasting of Quality Italian wine, hams, cheeses, Jams, Nutella... along side good hand made bread and tipical Romagna's Tigella (pronounced Teejella in English) similar to Piadina.
Besides tasting all that, there will be a room where all products (Hams, cheeses, wine and so on) can be bought, safely packed, to taste them comfortably at home.
In addition, an E-commerce will offer the opportunity to buy them from home whenever you want and with incredible promotions, discounts and Voucher to be used in our Bitstrot.
Moreover, We would offer catering service at your own home and cooking lessons.

Our target is creating a brand that means Italian guarantee of quality and open more and more national (and who knows... international, by franchising) retail points starting from Oxford or London.

Then I moved last January in UK, nearby Oxford, separating myself from my twin brother still living in Italy. This choice to advance in our project. Infact it was essential that I knew better British culture and its market before starting something up in here.
After almost 1 year of experience in working in Food & Beverage environment, catering and so on... I feel ready to proceed furtherly on my project and realize my dream, Step by Step!
I know that it is a big project that involves a huge exertion of time and money, That it's why I prefer to be careful with all details and make sure it had success.
