Overview


Buon appetito! Mangia bene!

Welcome to Nonna's kitchen where good food, good stories and an Italian grandmother's straight-from-the-heart advice are available to all who wander in.

During World War II, little Vincent Iezzi wandered in constantly to pull up a chair and satisfy his heart, soul and stomach at his grandmother Nonna's table. Vincent's father was away with the troops and his mother worked, but Nonna was always on the spot with a funny story, an encouraging tale, a cup of coffee and a plate of biscotti.

Nonna's South Philadelphia neighborhood was a slice of Italy, and her house, crowded with aunts, uncles and cousins, was a little village. Sometimes an oasis of peace with vigil candles flickering constantly in silent prayer for all in harm's way and sometimes a scene of bedlam with a dozen live crabs escaping from the grocery bag and dashing for the living room, Nonna's house was home to many hearts.

Come to her table now and join in the laughter, wisdom and warmth of family and friends.

    What a great book!!

    I loved the new book just as much as I loved the first one. I think this book may have been even better. I couldn't wait to read the next story. What a great woman Nonna was and what a beautiful family she had! I purchased 6 books and sent them to my family! They loved them and couldn't put their books down. I would love to hear more stories from Nonna!

    What a delightful book! So easy to read and so easy to be transported to the story line and the joys of growing up again. Warm. Loving. Respectful. Family. All wrapped up together and totally, completely, enjoyable. Highly recommend.

    More Coffee with Nonna: Stories of My Italian Grandmother

    This book is the delightful continuation of COFFEE WITH NONNA. In this book the author, Vincent Iezzi, makes Nonna and his family come more and more alive. Nonna's stores again enthalled and mesmerized me and again I was taken back to the past and closer to understand life and God. Her stories are parables - like a modern Aesop - GREAT - GREAT BOOK! A book all should read. 5 stars easily.....
