    The lady who carried out the tasting was very nice, personable and had the best knowledge of traditional Italian products, especially oil, their production and also about wines. In addition, she, a native Russian, speaks English very well. There was a generous, appetizing platter with various hams and cheeses for the olive sample. The atmosphere was very pleasant, informal and unobtrusive. I can highly recommend it!

    I have a wonderful experience with Nathalie. She was very friendly and she explained to me everything about olive oil even some things about wine, and acceto balsamico.
