Dear Mr. Matteo Renzi, Esteemed Prime Minister,
My name in Birinderjeet Singh and I am originally from Chandigarh in the Punjab State, India. It has only been a few days since I became an Italian citizen and I am writing to you to express my gratitude to this country and to the city of Florence that have welcomed me.
I arrived in Italy, and to this city in 1993, with a suitcase and a heart full of hopes and dreams. The largest of these was to be able to open a restaurant of my own, since in India I had studied hotel management.
In these 23 years, working hard and with passion, I was able to achieve my goal and now I am the owner of an Indian restaurant and a catering company that has ten people in its employ. This was made possible thanks to the economic and moral support that I received from many Italian friends. And how can we forget the support that comes from my wonderful family, with my wife Rubel and my children Lina and Vir who were born in the maternity ward at Careggi hospital!
Today, I can say that I, too, an Italian in full right, feel a very strong desire to thank you, this city, Florence, and this country, Italy.
I promise to always do my best to deserve the trust that was given to me all these years and to continue to give my small contribution in making this country even better.
Sincerely yours, Birinderjeet Singh
Thank you, too.
It is good to know that there are positive stories of immigration that make your heart leap.
Our children were born at the same hospital. Together we can build an Italy in which they can live happily.
Matteo Renzi, President of the Council of Ministers

Dear Mr. Giotti,
I wish to congratulate you on the organization and management of the party for my son Edoardo’s holy communion, which took place in Santa Maria a Vezzano on May 24. To be complimented for the idea of an “Indian” corner and for the quality of the food offered to 350 guests is not something that happens every day; for this I wanted to share with you my satisfaction.
Best regards. Francesco Bertini

My name is Kalu Agbese and I live in London. I would like to take this opportunity to offer my enormous thanks to Giotti Singh and the entire staff at Haveli Catering. Last December they organized the catering for my sister’s wedding, which we celebrated in a location in the countryside just outside of London.
I would like to emphasize the exquisiteness of the food prepared. All of the guests were enthusiastic about the quality of the dishes and the service. The staff was incredibly efficient. The result? Empty plates and very happy guests!
Finally, I would give special thanks to you, too, Giotti, and to your team. I will definitely come back to enjoy your services and will recommend Haveli Haveli Indian Catering to all my colleagues who want to organize a party with an exceptional dinner.

My dear friend Jyoti,
Having you on board my yacht was an enormous pleasure for me and my guests, enchanted by the beauty of the island and the beautiful dinner you prepared on board. I heartily thank you on behalf of myself and all of those who enjoyed, thanks to you, a highly successful blend of cultures and traditions. To have paired your art in Indian cuisine with the sunset and the colors of the bay of Antisamos made an evening special and an atmosphere unique.
We will do it again.
Thank you so much
