"I loved When In Italy. I've always been timid of making mistakes in Italy. Those waiters can be very intimidating, but now I've even had one smile at me and suggest that, as I was obviously someone in the know, he'd like to suggest a special dish for me. I feel like I've arrived at the mountaintop! Thank you Ms. Plantamura!"

"I consider myself to be an expert on Italy as I have traveled there many times. But on every page of When In Italy, I found information that I didn't know. I had many "ah ah" moments while reading it and look forward to testing it "in the field" when I return to Italy this spring. PS. Lots of laughs, too."
