    My daughters and I have made more than half the recipes and loved them all. Delicious well spiced dishes with easy to follow instructions. You don't have to be a vegetarian to get enjoyments out of this book the flavors will make every the hardcore carnivore wish for more.

    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.

    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.

    A great guide to expand your Italian repertoire. It is more about good food and less about how to do without meat.

    This book rarely sees a shelf - it's always in our kitchen! Reliable recipes that are full of flavor.

    Every recipe I've tried in this book is excellent. It offers many options that do not include the traditional pasta, such as gnocchi, risotto, and polenta.

    I looked and looked and looked but I could not find a single recipe that I wanted to try out. Disappointing.

    Vegetarian cookbook that non-vegetarians will enjoy and many recipes can be made vegan! <3

    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!

    This is one of our family's go to cookbooks. We use the risotto section all the time. A great addition to any kitchen.

    Everything I made from this cookbook was delicious and easy. The recipes are simple, with only a few ingredients. For example, a pizza with only a crust and sauteed onions and rosemary - it was actually really good! I made pizzas, pasta dishes, panini, polenta, risotto, and salads. The only problem I encountered was with the pizza crust recipe, which I couldn’t get to rise properly and ended up substituting a different crust recipe. I suspect that the book’s recipe does better in a warmer climat Everything I made from this cookbook was delicious and easy. The recipes are simple, with only a few ingredients.
