Lots of great recipes - as authentic as I can possibly imagine (see, Nonna - Italians don't have to eat meat in everything)! I just wish there were more photos - the images really make a cookbook special for me.

The recipes are simple and the outcome is delicious. Many of my favorites are only 3-5 ingredients. I taught myself to cook by working my way through this collection and serving the results to friends in 2005-6. Fritattas, sauces, vegetable side dishes, risottos. The leek and tomato sauce with thyme is a great starter for soup. Now that I am starting to bake, i get to explore new chapters! Jack works for America's Test Kitchen now.

This is one of my very favorite cookbooks! Everything is so delicious, it might as well be gourmet, but so easy to cook it's my go to cookbook for busy nights. I've even thrown an elegant dinner party with these recipes, and it never fails to impress, and has never let me down.

the recipes in this cookbook are quite authentic, which is saying a lot since italian food usually contains meat. the dishes are simple & delicious and no matter how few ingredients i have on-hand, i can almost always use a recipe from this book and have a tasty meal.
Loraine
Pesto, pizza, polenta and lots and lots of vegetarian dishes of the finest kind are in this book. If I had any space I would buy it and add it to my kitchen bookshelves. Yum!
Liz
This is one of my favorite cookbooks. To me, the tomato tart recipe alone is nearly worth the price of the book. I have yet to make a single bad recipe from this cookbook.
Tiffany
Every recipe I've tried from this cookbook has turned out to be delicious, and many have become family favorites.
Adrian Piazza
A great guide to expand your Italian repertoire. It is more about good food and less about how to do without meat.
Andrea
This book rarely sees a shelf - it's always in our kitchen! Reliable recipes that are full of flavor.
Kecia
I looked and looked and looked but I could not find a single recipe that I wanted to try out. Disappointing.
Ellen Stroud
An essential cookbook. Everything recipe I have tried has been both delicious and beautiful.
Amelia
I just checked this out from the library and am really excited about a lot of these recipes, yum!
