A useful little gem,
This review is from: The Rough Guide Phrasebook Italian (Rough Guide Phrasebooks) (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.
