Leonardo Iza

Chef de Cuisine

Short bio

Chef Leonardo’s career has let him cook for people he has always admired and never dreamed of knowing personally, including Naomi Campbell, Roberto Carlos, Ivete Sangalo, amongst others. It’s his perspective that a good meal is one of the greatest pleasures one can experience in life, whether it’s part of a special moment like a wedding or just an everyday occasion. And being able to be a part of that moment – the experience of eating – brings him immense joy and satisfaction.

Chef Leo possesses an eagerness to be a part of unforgettable moments in people’s lives, and to make them feel special, has been Chef Leonardo’s biggest motivation in his career. He puts his absolute best in every dish he cooks, and even more so when it’s part of a special occasion. There’s no better sound or energy for Chef Leonardo than the moment that people put his food in their mouth and go, ‘wow’.


Sincerely, nothing in particular. Whenever I reach or exceed my expectations, I am proud. I always try to impart my best efforts in every dish I create.

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Chef Leo was great, and the food was brilliant. Though the prior organisation wasn’t ideal. I’d filled in the form online but didn’t get a confirmation of what had been selected (which is difficult to remember when it’s done a few months before the event). Also, due to that, I had a calendar invitation for 6 pm but Chef Leo had been told to get there for 5 pm and we weren’t home. Besides that everything was great.

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fantastic menu, customer servicing and event organisation. The food was divine and there was something to cater for everyone’s dietary needs which made it easy, everything went down an absolute storm, there was nothing left! Thank you so much Chefin!

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Chef Leo was delightful. A beautifully prepared meal. Would have liked the courses a little more spaced out – they were served close together. Kitchen was left spotless.
