The Italian art of taste
Discover the taste of Italy
My father was a very good artist-painter as a hobby. Therefore I was, as child always surrounded by beautiful art. He had also the habit at least once a week to go for a dinner with the family in town and then we had always something special for dinner. He was an owner of several fashion shops in Amsterdam. A very artistic man with a great sence of humor but specially he loved good food.
After many years working for law firms, working for serveral partners, children on their own, I decided to do something I liked very much. I wanted to be busy with delicious and beatiful things.
We import our products from Italy, specially from all parts of Italy.
We import Balsamic vinegars from Toscany, Modena and Reggio. Those are the regions where the balsamic is made and certified. Those balsamics you can buy in two categories: from the barrel into the bottle or from the barrel with a little bit vinegar into the bottle. You can taste in our shop those products.

Special pottery from Rome
Our ceramics we import from Rome. Modigliani. When we were in Rome and we were walking the Via Condotti, we saw the shop of Modigliani. We were directly in love with this ceramic line but also their glass. It is all ;handmade, and hand shaped. That’s why it is so unbelievable beautiful. We went in and we talked to one of the ladies, working there, and they told me to come back the day after. That day one of the ladies was in and could tell us more about the possibilities. From that day, 15 years ago, we do business with Modigliani and we hope to do business more years. It is always a surprise when new items are arrived.
