    Hahaha my favorite part of this video was between Marisa pinching the Farfalle and grandma hitting on Dan! I laughed out lout!

  2. Connie

    I loved watching the family sit down to eat together- seems like we never do that as a family very often- I must work at this more.

  3. Mary

    Ahhh… Loved how her Mom was there to help make the pasta. I love my mom and wish she could come everywhere with me!

  4. Robynne

    My favorite part was watching the way mother and son worked in the kitchen together. It was so fluid, and beautiful!

  5. Valery Bunnell

    I love the authenticity of it all! Great food shared between friends and family is priceless.

  6. Lindsay

    I wanted to taste the cheese! It would be so fun to ride bikes around Italy, too. I so want to go there!

  7. Nancy J

    This is such a fun giveaway, I would LOVE to join you in LA. That would seriously be a dream come true. It would be so much fun to meet Rocco (I even watched his reality show a few years back) and get to cook and have a dream little vacation, pick me!

    Okay my favorite part of the video was when they played the game in the cheese shop, I thought that would be such a fun game to play!

  8. Joanna

    Rocco with that “shiv” was too funny! I can’t believe they guessed correctly on the cheeses! I never would have ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Brandi

    Wow! What a wonderful opportunity!

    It was all wonderful. Italy looked beautiful, the coffee in the piazza was picture pefect. Them riding bikes and twinkling the bell was funny. As was carrying the giant round of cheese. And who doesnโ€™t love pasta with parmasana regiana?? And the wonderful end to a day sitting and chatting with family? Beautiful. I had no idea that was how they pinched the pasta and I would never be brave enough to try to flip it like that!

  10. Linda

    This reminds me in a nostalgic way of when I lived in Italia. Very authentico- it truly is la vita bella. Fave part: tanto tanto formaggio- delizioso!

  11. Gwen

    So I love that Marissa’s mom and family show up. Nothing pairs better with food than family. And I so want to pinch some farfalle now!

  12. Johnna

    Ok, besides the beautiful scenery, the quaint cheese shop and the yummy Rocco, I love Marisa’s Italian boots!

  13. Pam Ivbuls

    Jenny, my favorite part of the video is how good Italian food always brings the family together. I also enjoyed watching two different kinds of cooks (chefs and Mamma!), learning cooking techniques from each other.

  14. Katie

    I liked the scenery. I would love to travel to another country as I never have before. I guess I would settle for L.A.

  15. Lynne Saltz

    The pasta! The Cheese! The Company! Who knew that a taste of Italy is as close as your grocers freezer! A little bit of heaven in every bite!

  16. shelly (cookies and cups)

    Watching them make the cool, also Dan carrying that cheese, that thing was HUGE ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Rose

    My favorite part of the video was watching Vito’s mom pinch the pasta. A very close 2nd favorite was the plastic animals!

  18. Jennifer

    I agree with some of the other posters that this was very “Amazing Race ish”

    I loved them picking out the cheeses and Rocco not wanting to pick, but keep eating instead ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, what an opportunity! I would love to come!

  19. Diane {}

    I loved seeing Marisa and Rocco in the kitchen with Vito’s mom, it’s so true you can learn so much from someone who has been cooking for many years. What fun a day in LA would be, with you Jenny and amazing food! What a FUN giveaway!

  20. Ginny Fisher

    Sooo much fun in an Amazing Race sort of way! I love it!! Can’t wait for tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Shannon Scorse

    Well now I want to go to Italy and hang out with Marisa Tomei ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and eat delicious pasta. Fun video-I love that it is like Amazing Race!

  22. Julianne

    My favorite part was seeing Italy!! I’ve been to Italy 3 times and watching it made me want to go again!
