"Thanks so much and I have to say...GOD, I LOVE YOU GUYS, LOL...Have a Happy and when I can afford to finally visit my family's homeland I will be sure to come and get my cookies baked fresh, Lol..."   Susan C.  Vernon, New Jersey 
"I do want to tell you as I told Sal, the cookies were really delicious and my family and guests truly enjoyed them when I served them for the holidays! I will certainly consider future orders from your bakery and I also enjoyed my conversation with Sal. He seems like a very personable, friendly and interesting fellow! Best regards to you and your family for continued success with your bakery. A satisfied Italian-American customer,"   Alberto T.  Seven Hills, Ohio
"The cookies are the best. In the past I have ordered my cookies from New York but last year I ordered them from Adriana's and they were far better than New York."   Mary T.  Oklahoma City, OK
"Caro Leo, Buona sera e grazie mille per la sua e-mail. Si, ho ricevuto i biscotti per la Natale e tutte la mia famiglia le piacciono molto bene. Lei parla bene inglese. Mi dispiace ma non io parlo bene l'italiano. In questo momento io imparo perché mi piace molto l'Italia e tutto italiano. Amo la storia, la cultura, la gente ma soprattutto, il cibo! Ho visitato il nord (lago di como) tre volte. È molto bello e in il futuro io spero visitare Roma, Firenze, Venezia e anche altre città.

Anche in futuro vorrei acquistare più biscotti da 'cookie da Italia', perché mi piaceva molto molto. Cordiali Saluti,"  
Linda F.  Glasgow, Scotland, UK

"Hello Adriana! For the past couple of years my husband and I have sent an arrangement of cookies to our dear friends Alexandra and Tom Clancy. They LOVED your cookies so much. Alex informed me that they have decided to use for gifts to their friends and family also. I am happy that they are using your company because your products are so wonderful. Happy Holidays and we will be placing a few orders with you as well. Best Regards!"   Barbara Simonian P.  Manlius, New York
"We received them yesterday and they are WONDERFUL! Thank you so much! I am really glad I found your website...I'll pass it on!"   Kimm H.  Chicago, Illinois
"I want you to know I ordered cookies from you over 5 years ago for my son's wedding. They were delicious and thus my other son is getting married on the 5th of September. We had to carry on the tradition of you great cookies and thus the 2nd order. They will be used for the rehearsal dinner on Friday, September 4th. My dad was raised in Sicily and he stated they tasted like he was back home. I think that is the highest compliment you can get. He even said some were better than his mothers.

When I visit Sicily again, I would love to stop by your bakery and thank you in person for giving us a special memory, since my dad has passed away. Somehow the cookies will bring him back to us, if even for a little while. Grazie!"  
Angela Palazzolo M.  Goodrich, Michigan
"It was a very nice gesture to inquire about how my Aunt Louise Iorio enjoyed your cookies. Your cookies gave her great pleasure and brought back pleasant memories for her 90 th birthday. She loved the fact that they came directly from Italy. (We are of Italian descent.) However, my Aunt Louise passed away on April 5th. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to make her smile. Sincerely,"   Cathy S. Glendale, California
"Dear Adriana, I am just writing to let you know that my cookies have arrived, and they are lovely! Thank you very much. Best wishes!"   Emma R.  Kent, England

Josephine M.,  Staten Island, New York

She really did say it was the best cookies she has ever tasted and trust me, she has experience. I thank you so much for coming through with this order for the Holidays. I have sent my entire family your website and you should see a few orders come from the San Diego area as well as NY/NJ. I will be in touch again soon!"   Jamie D.  Vista, California

I was not disappointed my husband could not stop eating them..

Thank you for confirming my order I am waiting with baited breath for them. I have told anyone who I have spoke to about your cookies. They are excited to have them when they arrive for the wedding with a good cup of coffee. I also love the look when I put out the ones I ordered a month ago. Their eyes light up and say "OH MY GOD!" these are the best!

"I just wanted to say while my food is finishing, thanks for having such a useful website with inspirational recipes, when I don't need recipes.

I am 3/4 Sicilian blood and born the first generation to speak English natively in America (my nana and nanu fled under Mussolini and my American-born mother learned English as a second language). Americans who think the Olive Garden is authentic Italian make me want to scream (sugar in your tomato sauce?! I also think I'm the only person who actually pounds their releases the basil oils. Capisci?!)

When I come home from work, I'm often too tired to look at my refrigerator and come up with anything creative. I cook creatively: you never get the same meal twice. You're the only website that's creative enough and also authentic enough to inspire what I eventually come up with (I'm vegetarian, so I heavily substitute).
Thanks, AGAIN, for the fantastic inspiration, every time I'm too tired to cook. You have no idea how much you mean to me. I love you. Salut!!!"   Snarko,  USA
"I wanted to thank you for the great recipes.  I look forward to your recipes. I just wish I could be in Sicily with you. Tante tante grazie. Un suo amico dagli Stati Uniti."   Lendes, USA
"Ciao, I just wanted to let you know that my father was from Santo Stefano Quisquina... I am very proud to be the daughter of a native from there and a daughter from my mom, (Castellamare del golfo)...

I am ordering a few things...thanks for this wonderful website."  
Maria Giuseppina  USA
"Hi Signor Leo,

So good to hear from you. I am doing very well. "Come stai?" I'm so excited the cookies are in the mail. I'm getting them for my best friend's birthday. She loved the Sesame Cookies. I usually get some from New York... but yours are the BEST! Thank you so much. Ciao!"  
Mary T.  Oklahoma City, OK
"I just would like to compliment your company on the interesting and lovely recipes that we receive in your newsletter. I always look forward in receiving the newsletter. Just a  suggestion, would it be possible also to include the measurement/quantity in metric? Many thanks and all the very best for 2009."   Mena R. UK
"Dear bakery, I ordered cookies to be sent to my son in Kuwait (he's in the Air Force). You sent me an e-mail that you usually didn't send to APO addresses, but if I still wanted you to you would. Well, I did and you sent them and he was thrilled. He said they were awesome!!! Thank you for doing such a generous thing for me and my son."   Jo D.  Maumelle, Arizona
"Buon Giorno Leo, I wanted to write you and let you know how much we enjoyed the cookies we ordered. They were delicious and so fresh! We will definitely be ordering cookies for our daughters wedding in August. (Aug. 13) When do you think we should put the order in for the cookies? We will probably be ordering 2-3 trays.

I look forward to hearing from the mean time we are enjoying the delicious cookies. My Mom in NY even placed an order for Easter! Grazie!"  
Debbie M.  Charlotte, North Carolina
"Thank you so much for the email. The cookies were fantastic!!!

Let me ask...if I want to get cookies for the Christmas Holiday when should I order them from you? Thank you again. Kindest regards!"   Mary T.  Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
"Your cookies were very important to our family over the holiday season. With the disaster of Hurricane Katrina, it was very important to us to save one tradition.

"Yea, on Friday the 29th is fine. I am dying for these cookies. I ordered them before and ADORE them. No Italian bakeries even make them in Jersey. They do in Boston, Mass, but it is only a little cheaper than ordering them from your company and no one and I do mean no one matches the taste and quality of yours. I LOVE 'EM.

"Thank you for your gracious note about the order I placed for my nephew's engagement party last November. Hopefully you'll find a picture attached and you'll see the cookies on the left side of the dessert table (which by the way is my Grandmother's table, 1930's). The cookies were the first to go...everyone enjoyed them so much. I want to thank you again for helping me out with such prompt delivery! I most definitely will order again...and if I can, I'll send you a wedding picture as it turned out, the wedding was also at my house!"   Marianne D.P  Mesa, Arizona

"I am just writing to tell you how much all of my family liked your cookies. I had ordered the Party Assortment Tray just prior to Christmas and received it in plenty of time. It was beautifully wrapped in red foil wrapping and tied at the top, which I thought added such a nice touch as someone had taken the extra time to do this.
I loved all the cookies but my favourites were the almond ones – one was a round white cookie with almond filling and the other was also round and had pieces of almonds on the outside. They were delicious!
I have been meaning to write for weeks but have only just managed to get round to it as I’ve been so busy with being back at work etc. I just wanted you to know how much we all loved your cookies – they didn’t last long as they were all eaten very quickly!
Attualmente, imparo l’italiano ma non parlo bene. Parlo soltanto un po’. Mi piace molto l’Italia e tutto italiano – È un molto bel paese! Amo la storia, la cultura, la gente ma sopratutto il cibo! Tanti saluti,"   Linda F.  Glasgow, Scotland, UK

"Grazie, grazie, grazie! I cannot believe how quickly you were able to send an answer for my question!

I am familiar with fennel, and I do enjoy it in its fresh state. I had no idea it is also used as a dried vegetable, and I am amazed, since I have been cooking for more than 30 years, and I have never seen it as such in a recipe! I will be sure to try this recipe now!

And I will definitely order some of your company's cookies, for my family to enjoy in the coming Christmas season. Thank you for your excellent email newsletter. I enjoy it and then I forward it to my 89-year old father, who then enjoys it, too! Grazie tanto and buona salute!"  
Elaine W.  USA

When the package arrived, I noticed that you are located in Agrigento. This is a very small world, as my grandmother came from Bivona, Agrigento over 100 years ago. Are you located near Bivona. 

I was in Agrigento 5 years ago, and it was just as beautiful and my Grandmother described. I'm hoping to return to beautiful Sicily in the future. Thanks for the wonderful cookies. Ciao!"

Finally, I got to taste them since she and my cousin Christine have been raving about them. They were delicious. Thank you for making her birthday special.

I want to pace a order for myself but will do this once you return from your holidays. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday. Warmest regards!"

"Buon Giorno Leo! How nice to hear from you my paisano from so far away! (I am 100% SICILIAN!) Unfortunately, my parents did not teach my sister and I the Sicilian language. However, we do know a few words...(some good, some not so good!) :-)

I pray this finds you well and doing great...summer has been very, very HOT here and we are looking forward to FALL. God bless you for the wonderful products you offer us AUTHENTIC ITALIANS who long for the 'OLD COUNTRY', OUR ROOTS, AND WHERE ARE HEARTS WILL ALWAYS BE... Ciao! Ciao!"  
Frank A.  Antioch, California
I regularly receive your newsletters and also those from 'Oregano from Italy' and 'Only in Italy' which I have to say, makes me laugh out loud when I read some of the stories in it. I am also a subscriber to a very popular magazine called 'Italia' which is all about Italy, the people, the culture, the food, the wine and for those able to afford a holiday home, the property. I buy this magazine simply because I love everything about Italy.
I have only visited three times so far but I hope to make many more visits in the future. The magazine staff like to hear comments and suggestions from their subscribers, so I recently wrote to them and told them all about the 'Cookies from Italy' website and your delicious cookies so I hope that by doing that, you get some extra business coming your way from some more of their readers.

I have already eaten two cookies today with my afternoon coffee and look forward to eating lots more, along with the rest of my family of course! Kindest Regards and All the Best for 2009!"  
Linda F. Glasgow, Scotland, UK  
Dear Salvatore and Adriana, I just received the cookies and once again they are perfect. My Mom will be delighted to see your wonderful cookies again. Thanks so much for having your website for my family to enjoy our heritage. We are four generations enjoying your cookies from age 92 down to 11 years old. I will surely share with my friends as they truly enjoyed your cookies from my last order. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Ciao-Ciao e grazie!   Christine C.  Pleasanton, CA

"Buon Giorno Signor Leo! I must say you just made my day and I am so happy. The cookies I ordered just arrived by the postman. I do appreciate your hard work to get them out to me on time for my dear husband's birthday. Thank you again so very much. Ciao-Ciao!"

"Thank you so much for getting back to me. Your baking operation sounds so great you start with fresh ingredients and that makes all the difference. I really love them...I will be happy when Christmas is over. It makes some Americans here so rude, and nasty. Oh well, wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy 2011! I can't wait to dive into these cookies! ;) Your loyal customer,"

"Your recipe "Polpette di Uova" is very similar to a dish my father used to make for us. He called it Frogia (not sure how you would spell it). It consisted of eggs, grated romano cheese, bread crumbs, cooked cauliflower, salt and pepper. He made into little patties and fried them. Our family came from Aragona. Thanks for the recipes."   Mary K. Amato H.  Winchester, Virginia

Polpetti di Uova. My mother used to make this. The recipe sounds like what she used to do. I wish I had her original recipe, but this sounds like hers. I will make it soon, thanks for reminding me of it. I assume its Sicilian cause that's what my mother was and she was the best cook. Keep sending these great recipes."   Annette  USA

I am recovering from a triple bypass heart surgery and not able to buy anything now but please keep me on you list and I appreciate your posts. If I can't buy I like to see what is offered. My father came here from Sicily and I am 75 yrs old now so your posts are welcome and I like everything you got there but I don't have the money to buy now. My very best regards!"   Niko, USA
