Pros: Organized, easy to follow, lots of information.

I currently work in an upscale Italian Bistro, and when I picked this book up, it gave me inspiration to creating new ideas with old dishes. This cookbook is layered with pizzas, sauces, antipasti, pasta and tons more recipes that you find all over Italy. It is basically the food bible of Italy, spread with over 2,000 recipes with all kinds of sea foods, meats, game, poultry, marinades and vegetables! Contains a section full of Italian cooking terms. If you love classic Italian and European foods, I would pick this one up!
