The owner, Paolo Fonte, is a master at his craft. We needed a new kitchen, among other cabinetry, and needed help with the design and creativity. We found Five Star Kitchens through word of mouth in the industry and decided to ask them to see our location and get some ideas. Paolo is a hard working, immigrant and is easy to deal with. He's listens attentively and is quite passionate about his work. After asking us some questions he came up with a design which we loved. We hired him and went to see how the cabinets were coming along at his shop during the process and even made some changes as we went along. His work is outstanding, reasonably priced considering the quality and other competitors, and his installation crew is also very good and respectful of your home when working to install the cabinets. Paolo also visits on site to check on the work to ensure it meets his standards.
Paolo is a creative entrepreneur who is so passionate and proud of his work, he won't leave your place unless he's completely pleased with his work and to ensure you're pleased, or else he'll continue working until you are pleased.
The only negative is his delivery time, he's known to be late on his delivery and I suspect that's because he's in such high demand now because of his reputation of being an excellent cabinet maker, and also because he gets personally involved in each project to ensure it meets the high quality he demands. If you can tolerate this, he offers the best value in my opinion. I would give him 10+++ across the board but I had to discount that rating because of his missed delivery schedule. I will always recommend Five Star Kitchens to anyone with the proviso you have to be aware he might be late in delivery, if you can live with that, you will be rewarded with the best quality workmanship in the industry.
