What a great story! The main character is easy to relate to - always worried about her figure. But Dante...oh, Dante... He sees her as beautiful, just the way she is. I'd love to stumble into his restaurant any day of the week. A fun read I highly recommend!

This story is HOT, HOT, HOT. Can't you just imagine what this man is like? Whew. Loved this one as much as the last two. I relate to this girl! It's a girl's dream come true, a hot man and hot food. Yum. You won't be able to put this one down.

Maria and Dante are perfect for each other, but Maria thinks she is in love with her high school sweetheart, Antonio. She is willing to suffer through Chubbie Chums meetings and starvation dieting to reach a single digit dress size. Dante's attentions and intentions frighten her, and she fights her growing attraction to him. Maria still grieves for the betrayal of another boyfriend, and she has no intention of being under any traditional Italian husband's thumb. It takes the discovery of her mother's secret to convince Maria that she can be herself and be married too. Of course, Nonna's "marriage soup" has nothing to do with it! Each chapter features delicious Italian recipes told by the various character's points of view. Shirley Jump's excellent storytelling delivers wonderful characters and warm humor in a delightful love story set in the Italian community in Boston. You'll fall in love with this book!

Starving ourself for the perfect man....we've probably all done that a time or two over the course of our lives. In this book Maria does just that and why not kill two birds with one stone and impress the size two skirts of a long time rival. But what happens when she meets the one man that accepts and desperately wants her just as she is.. she runs or she tries to!

I was hooked from the first chapter. Maria is a character that I just simply wanted to whack with the nearst object to knock sense into her. And Dante is one of those temptations that simply cannot be resisted and needs to be tasted at all costs!

I love how the author incorporates various mouth watering recipes into a tale of 'Out there is the one man that will love you for who you are,even if you don't'.

Maria's family are absolutely hilarious and had me laughing out loud at their sour n' sweet antics. I love how the author made the book almost personal as if trying to tell the reader home is where the heart is...

The Devil Served Tortellini has passion and even a sleazy character or two, which adds to the spice of romance. It is a fun and romantic comedy that left me feeling much like Maria twisted and twined around food for thought.

If you have never read the authors books before your in for a real treat -- go grab a copy of The Devil Served Tortellini before the restaurant is fully booked I mean the book stores sell out!

This book is so good. Maria knows that she is overweight and no matter what she does she can not seem to loose the weight that she has gained since high school. The other things is there is nothing more that she wants than to stick it to the woman who was once overweight and is now skinny. The problems she has found is Dante he is not only hot he is the chef for the restaurant across the street from where she is going to her meetings. The two temptations that he represents are more than any woman can handle so what does she do avoid at all cost. This would work except for her matchmaking mother and his concierge constantly trying to hook them up. This is a book that you will relate to as well as fall in love. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

For some reason, I just could not get invested in these characters. Maria, the heroine, seemed a bit on the slutty side to me. She talked about having sex with everything that moved. Even going so far as to try and lose 25 lbs. before her high school crush, she did him at prom, comes back to town for the 10 year reunion. They have not kept in touch, etc., he just calls to say he is coming and to get ready. So she is going to wild extremes to get in shape for his return. He sounds like a pig to me.

She meets Dante, a very Italian male. I think she wants to avoid an involvement because he represents the male Italian's point of view, keep the woman in the kitchen while he is out with the boys. It seems that way. I don't really know Italian culture at all. But he doesn't seem to want a relationship either, he just wants to have sex with her. Now, she has sex with a guy she met at a cousin's wedding, the same night she met him, a loser with a capital L, but she is trying to avoid this guy. I'm not sure I get her reasoning. Seems like he would be the perfect candidate to end her dry spell. He is HOT, he wants her but doesn't want a relationship. Her perfect man yet she is putting him off. WHY?

It seems her family as well as all the other characters have only one thing on their mind, marry and have children. Something she definitely does not want to do. Not sure why. There is nothing wrong with the story, I just could not get into it. I liked Dante, a chef, but it seemed like his only interest in Maria was her big boobs and lush body. He was so hot for her and didn't even know her name. Maybe it works that way and I am just missing the point. I would certainly suggest you give this one a try and see for yourself.
