"A seriously comprehensive guide that shows that Italian food is about for more than just pasta and pizza... One for serious Italophiles."—Gordon Ramsey, The Times

"The most successful Italian cookbook of all time."—The Financial Times

"It’s not so much one more Italian cookbook as the one-volume encyclopedia of Italian home cookery. Lavish illustrations, a helpful glossary of cooking terms and a translation geared to the intelligent layout make The Silver Spoon both pleasant browsing and an accessible manual in the kitchen."—The Wall Street Journal

"Big and bountiful, it’s a welcoming jumble of recipes... And by the looks of it, it may give cookbooks by American celebrity chefs a run for their money."—The New York Times Magazine
