    This place is ABSOLUTELY fantastic! Owner gives one on one presentation plus makes great deals (even shipped my new cameo home for me) PS My trip was spring 2010 so the previous post has been true for a number of years!

    Looks like you had a great trip. I can't wait to taste the limoncello and mozzarella myself this fall.

    Great page! Thanks for the warning about the hotel--I'm surprised they didn't charge you for looking in the mirror! We also ate at the La Purruchianno in 2007!
