5.0 out of 5 stars The essence of good italian cookery.
I have had this book for many years, and it is one that I keep coming back to. It is a no frills book that distils Italian cookery down to really simple recipes packed with flavour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really what I expected...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply delicious, 23 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
The River Cafe is one of the most sensational restaurants in London and this, the second book published on this trendy Italian eaterie, is just as good. There are recipes for everything--from poltenta to shellfish to frittatas--and every one is a winner. You'll never feel bored by this book. In 20 years time we'll look back at this one as a classic.
