Given as a gift. Got excellent feedback from the recipient. When we ran into issues with the delivery service for one of the packages, customer service was amazing... Super responsive, nice and quick to resolve the issue!
I purchased a 3 mos subscription for my Sicilian father this Christmas. He has no idea what to expect but both my mom and dad loved getting a monthly surprise in the mail. I was so happy to see how excited they were. It’s really nice to get my dad something he truly enjoys and doesn’t have to cook. It’s a no fuss, easy box.
It arrives in a sturdy box in the colors of the Italian flag - as though it was shipped internationally. Products always taste fresh and wholesome. I wish the products could be ordered individually from your web site - that would give you a 5 star rating.
I bought a gift subscription for my parents and they are loving each package. They are very well curated with a variety of tastes, flavors and items in each box. On top of this, the company is very responsive and helpful with questions. I highly recommend this as a gift or a personal treat.
As an Italian American I'm blown away by everything in this box! I love it so much I had to go ahead and get both subscriptions. Grazie mille!
Thank you Tara. We're glad you're enjoying Gusto di Roma!
It’s so beautiful! The packaging just makes it even better! It shipped SO fast and came quickly. I emailed them asking a question and they responded same day!
We used the jam to make thumbprint cookies and they are delicious!
It brings us both back to Italy
A little on the pricey side, but the items are great quality and delicious! Would recommend for any foodies out there, and it makes a great gift.
I had such fun opening this box. It can with a bitter soda which was much loved by my hubby & I. I am looking forward to the next box and sorry I signed up for every 2 months. I want one every month!!!
Bought for my husband for Father's day! We already opened and he loved everything inside. He can't stop eating the biscotti. The shipping was super fast and none of the products were damaged.
I received my first box as a gift. It was so incredible, I just had to get the monthly deliveries. The box presentation, quality of the food items, and recipes totally impressed this Italian girl! These boxes will now be my go to gifts for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc. Thank you Gusto di Roma!
Frances, thank you for the kind words!
My husband and I are foodies! I was looking for a subscription box we both would enjoy opening and experiencing together and I am SO GLAD I found this one. I gave it 4 stars for curation simply because I am not a big sweets person, I love the savory items. What a wonderful surprise and late night snack that comes to our door once a month.
Courtney, we're glad you found us, too! Thanks for being a Gusto di Roma customer.

It brings all the comfort foods and tastes that made your Italian vacation so special and packages it conveniently into a curated group of items that will please your palate and remind you of what you loved most about your Italian adventure.

Mitzi, longtime customers like you make Gusto di Roma proud -- Thank you!
Box is amazing. Love the selection and it was packed perfectly - great presentation. Look forward to next month’s box.
Alexandra, we're so happy you enjoy our selections of Italian goodies!
My Italian, New Yorker, mother in law loved getting these boxes!! She’s a huge snacker, so the items were perfect. She’s trying to hunt down a few of the items in store so she can restock! She also said they would be perfect to have out at a party, and she’s going to reuse the packing at Christmas time! I would totally repurchase at the next special occasion!
Stephanie, if you're mother-in-law is happy, that makes us happy – Thank you!
I have been a customer for many wonderful boxes. Most of the contents are gone in days, but a saved few jars in my pantry help inspire me. I like the recipes and suggestions that come with the items.
Amy, thanks for being a longtime customer!
Absolutely a delight to give and even better to receive!! Gusto Di Roma are truly hand packaged, always elegant, and exceed my expectations every time!! Truly the best gift (and easy!) for those who love Italian and looking to expand their palate with authentic selections by Matthew De Bellis! It’s a trip to an Italian market in a box!
Alexi, thanks for this great review!
These boxes of Italian delicacies have been a great way for us to follow up a trip to Florence -- fine black olives, artichoke tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil, etc. What treats!
Thank you Charles!
I’m super busy, and shopping and cooking can take a lot of time. Gusto di Roma helps me eat healthy and indulge myself with authentic Italian food. And I can host guests on the fly. They also send me recipes in email newsletters. The food is always delicious and the wrapping is super fancy
Thank you Heba!
If you're looking for a box that will provide you with a great Italian picky-plate meal every month, then you should try this box. It took us a minute to figure out what the Balsamic Vinaigrette was, because the packaging is all in Italian. Lots of olive based foods in this box, so might not be good for people who don't like olives, or have friends/family that would have the olives and olive pate, but otherwise is a great value for anyone interested in a great culinary experience.
David – Thanks for trying Gusto di Roma!
Always a joy to receive this monthly package.
A nice mix of sweet and savory. Fun to find new and unexpected items to enjoy.
Greg, thanks so much!
I shared my box of Gusto Di Roma treats with friends at work and they absolutely LOVED it! Easy to put together the tasty treats and the quality and taste of the products are unmatched.
Diana, Gusto di Roma IS perfect for company meetings ... Thanks for your kind words.
Sent this as a gift and my family was disappointed. I hoped it would bring joy, but it just made my parents wish for something better. They mentioned that the box contained a can of tomatoes, an artichoke spread, and mini-breadsticks. Things they could have easily found at a local grocery store. I feel hustled- I wanted to do something nice by sending this as a gift, but I came across looking cheap.
We're sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Here's a $10 coupon code – VENICE – good toward any of the many packages we have on our Gusto di Roma website.
I expected this box to have some really cool foods from Italy that my mom could use and enjoy. However, the foods delivered were usually odd or easily found here. At one point we received a can of crushed tomatoes; granted they were from Italy, but obviously not unique nor worth the price. Save your money and get Italian products you actually want from your local grocery store.
Sarah, sorry we disappointed you :-(
