    This was a boutique experience, Nathalie was wonderful, and there were just the two of us, it was a very personal experience. The fare was outstanding, the cheeses and the accompanying relishes and home made bread, superb. Getting to know Italy isn’t all about museums, experiences like this is about history to be sure, but about real Italian life.

    Our guide was extremely nice and knowledgeable about the products’ history and origin. She gave us a lot of information about how a tasting should go and what to pay attention to. The cheese itself was delicious, and we got to taste some wine and balsamic vinegar as well. Would definitely come again for different tastings. The stores are very authentic.
