I purchased this book for a recent trip to Italy and I couldn't have done without it.

The menu reader was excellent as was the section on travel. Many Italians were just impressed I tried.

Many of the words were also put into useful phrases and the more difficlt words were spelt out phonetically for ease of pronunciation.

I would reccomend it for any trip around Italy.

We took this guide with us on a two week road trip through Italy and found that the lay out was very useful with the different sections and the phonetic pronunciation encouraged us to speak the words with more confidence than we would with a normal dictionary. Unfortunately we gave up using it after a while as we found that words on the menu were not in the book and there were words that the Italians themselves did not know, such as mosquito repellent. I would not depend on this book alone and would recommend using it in conjunction with a proper dictionary.

Format: Paperback
This is a very useful (& compact) companion on a trip to Italy.

The book is compartmentalised into useful sections (split in alphabetical order)such as Banks, Car Hire, Restaurants etc.

It also has a reasonably sized English - Italian section with some key phrases already mapped out & the corresponding Italian - English version as well.

Perhaps best of all is the 19 page "menu reader" which should help you either get what you want when you go to a restaurant or at least understand what is on offer.

There are some elements for the more advanced user who has perhaps forgotten many of Italian's grammatical features in the "How The Language Works" section.

Very good value & well worth the investment.

I bought this for our recent trip to Rome. We had no prior knowledge of Italian (I have a Latin 'O' Level from many, many years ago) and this 'Rough Guide' provided all the essential words and phrases we needed.

OK, in a city like Rome, English is 'la lingus secondo' and almost all the restaurants we came across in the heart of the city have menus in Italian and English, and yes, you can get your burgher and chips, just don't go to McDonalds, you'll miss out on some freshly made food.

This little book gives you everything from apple to zucchini and leaves out the bits you don't need. If you're planning on waterski-ing, don't buy it but if you want more than just to survive, it's a must.

I could write a lot more but I think you get the message.

Ciao,

Pete C

This little book was very handy on our recent holiday in Sardinia. The menu and drinks section were particularly useful. It is a good size to carry everywhere. Will certainly be using this book again.

This was invaluable. We used it most for translating menus and road signs. Would definitely recommend!

Very handy short & small booklet to learn basic Italian. Small enough to fit in your luggage or shoulder bag & very good value for money.
