COMMENTS ON THIS PACKAGE FROM OUR GUESTS


This is an email we received from Jen and Bob from the USA:

Dear Massimo & Arianna,

No worries about the gifts!
I'm sorry we did not get to see you one last time Massimo and I'm even more sorry that we were not able to come to your party! We were really honored that you invited us and would have really loved to come!
We just want to make sure that you know we really enjoyed our 7 Night Dinner is Ready Package - it really exceeded our expectations! Our trip to Italy would have felt superfificial without this part of the trip. The location of Selvino was lovely and a perfect place to relax in between our trips to Rome and Forence. It was also centrally located, which made it perfect for exploring Tuscany. We also learned so much about the Tuscan cuisine and culture during the cooking lessons, they were perfect! Marissa & Esther are just perfect and so much fun. One of the best parts was meeting the both of you - it was fun and interesting to learn about life in Italy from your perspectives. We are amazed that you have put together this company at a young age and are reccommending you whenever we can!
Honestly, if you ever need a place to stay in Chicago, please contact us through e-mail or phone.

Take Care,

Jen and Bob
