{Living with GUSTO}

Hi ladies , how are you?

I’ve been two days in Rome to visit my friend for her birthday. We had a great dinner with her fantastic family and than today she took me around that magic, noisy, fantastic city.
Like in “La Dolce Vita ” she took me everywhere driving a vespa.

I asked her to take me to “GUSTO” that for me that I love to bake and cook it’s like Disneyland for a kid. It was a while I didn’t visit the store but it’s always the same… Beautiful and unique. It’s an emporium and a bookstore too, a restaurant and a wine bar, a pizzeria and an “osteria”. I found beautiful little gift for christmas and interesting books. I was sure to find some gifts…and so I did!

The Emporium bookstore
, open from 10.30 am till 1.00 am, sells kitchen utensils and many other things. Tablecloth, cutlery, saucepans, place setting, accessories.

I took some pics with my cell ‘cause they didn’t want, please forgive me for the bad quality!

The Kitchenaid my dream… I wrote it on the letter for Santa…

A window separate the emporium to the pizzeria…

Gusto – Emporio Libreria
Piazza Augusto Imperatore, 7 – 00186 Roma

Tomorrow I will post other pics about my visit…

Kris I think you are the winner…let me wait till the end but I’m defenitely thinking to send the gift to you!

Love you all

  • This place looks divine! I love the pink Kitchenaid mixer! I just got one in silver!

    Kitchen shops are just my favourite places to be - I could (and do) spend hours in them. I'll have to visit Gusto when I'm next in Rome - it looks like heaven.

  • My darling I wish you and yours all the joy, love, hope, blessings, peace, laughter, miracles, good health and boundless wealth during this holiday season and always.

    Love & Hugs

  • Gaia Dear, it is Monika again...

    I am taking a little holiday break (too much going on, so I can't even think straight!).

    I wish you a wonderful Christmas, girlie, and I can't wait for more fabulous posts from you in 2010!

    Happy, happy! OX, Monika
