Forget Balduccis and other places with fancy prices and less than superb food - get this and wow your friends and family without knocking yourself out - or hurting your budget. I have already tested several of these recipes and they are superb! Full-color photos of every recipe on every page and great directions. These are the real thing, too, everyday cooking (as well as fancier, more expensive recipes if you like) for true culinary feasts, Italian style. All the pasta dishes you'd expect, plus a wealth of seafood recipes - from seafood marinara to calimari. There's even a recipe for Duck Casserole which I'd like to try soon. If you find a copy, you'll probably pay a pretty penny, but you won't regret it. Worth every penny I've paid and I'd gladly pay double the price for this one!

My sister had this book and made the Manicotti Crepes and meatballs for a family dinner. I liked it so much, I bought my own copy of the book. Elodia's recipes are great, they are old-fashioned good but suited to the busy working cook.

I love this cookbook!!! Her recipes are just like my Grandmother used to make. Unfortunately all of our family recipes are not written down. So whenever I am unsure of how to make something I check with Elodia!

Mrs. Rigante and my husband's grandmother were aquaintances in her Brooklyn neighborhood; they lived just a few blocks from one another. Grandma didn't write down a lot of her recipes, so Mrs. Rigante's cookbook is a lifesaver. Their recipes are so similar it's like having a bit of home every time you open up the book. We can't look through it without getting hungry! Every recipe we've tried is excellent, and I love the family anecdotes and pictures. This is a staple for every cookbook collection.

I borrowed the cookbook from my Sister inlaw and loved it. I had to get a copy and luckily I found one! The recipes are fantastic I really love the book. I am italian and these recipes remind me of my Grandmothers cooking. Elodia is the best! Buy it if you can find a copy.

I love this cookbook. It reminds me of my own family. My father was from Italy, and he used to cook like this all the time. Unfortunately he passed away when I was very young, so I never got to ask him about certain recipes. When I read the reviews on this cookbook, I knew I had to have it. I'm so glad I decided to get it, because the recipes that I have tried so far are great. I also like the little stories that she has, it reminds me of pictures of my family as well.

This is the best Italian cookbook I have used. The recipes are direct and simple to follow. There are also pictures of almost all the recipes. If you enjoy simple down to earth good Italian food, this is the cookbook for you. It reminds me of my Grandmother's cooking.

Take it from me, this is one of the best Italian cookbooks out there. We have had this book for ~ 2 years now and are looking for more to give to friends. This book needs to get back into print!!
