Loved the artisanal feel and the leather goods were well done and absolutely beautiful. The shop owner was wonderful! We found a lovely belt that was a tad too long and she re-cut and finished it to fit to perfection!

This is a wonderful shop, a rare find, centrally located off the Via Veneto. Though she sells beautiful leather handbags, briefcases and accessories of her own design, the owner, Ilaria, made a purse to my own specifications and was so easy to work with. She also designed and made a beautiful man's wallet for me, all for a reasonable price. She is a real artist and perfectionist. Truly pleased with everything I purchased there. I plan to return whenever I come to Rome.

I had an opportunity to visit Grecale about a year and a half ago. We had rented an apartment directly across the street from the shop and I was intrigued the minute I saw it.
If you like high quality handmade leather goods that are designed beautifully, this is the store for you. When we were there, the owner had just returned from her summer vacation and she did not have a great deal of stock in house. However, I purchased a beautiful red pocketbook and many of her key rings. This year, I wanted to buy more of the key rings as holiday gifts and as much as I avoid ordering things online from overseas vendors-this purchase could not have been easier. The owner answered my emails promptly and she could not have been more helpful.I live in New York City, and we have lost many of our artist or family owned businesses--the kind of places that make New York unique. When I saw Grecale, I was reminded that wonderful store/workshops still exist in the world. Bravo Grecale!

My husband and I were meandering down from a morning spent at the Villa Borghese when we accidentally came across Ilaria's beautiful little leather shop. She has an small but beautiful selection of clutch bags, bigger hand bags, cosmetic pouches all made from the choicest leathers and the workmanship and designs are fabulous.
Ilaria also tells us that she can custom make for clients - colour, type and size to suit.
Certainly recommend this beautiful little Artisan shop to anyone wanting a great product of excellent value.

My wife is delighted with the handbag she ordered from Ilaria's workshop. At the time we visited there weren't many products available to buy but Ilaria was happy to spend time going through lots of styles and colourways for a handbag to make and then ship to the UK. (We were leaving the next morning otherwise we could have collected it within 24 hours). My wife says the craftsmanship, as well as the quality of the leather, is superb. The price for such a quality product is excellent. Also handmade belts and cosmetic bags. My wife is now looking forward to the winter collection as you can order online. Birthday and Christmas presents sorted!

It's very close to the Barberini metro, or 15 mins walk from the Spanish steps.

This is exactly the kind of Artisan shop you dream of finding in Italy - but seldom do. Absolutely beautiful handmade leather goods of the finest quality, at very reasonable prices. There is an amazing selection of colors and leathers - all first rate. And the workmanship is fabulous. We had Ilaria make several custom pieces for us, and each one was exquisite.
We were very lucky to find this shop, because we were staying just up the street. It is just off the Piazza Barberini, but on a quiet street off the "tourist path"
We'll definitely be returning here!

We discovered this wonderful little shop quite by accident as it is 100 meters up a side street. The owner is very friendly and makes handbags and leather goods to order. I was very impressed with the range of personalised handbags on display. (many different types of leather, styles, colours, and accessories etc.) In my case she copied my wife's favourite bag which was getting a little worn and the result was excellent. If you want a elegant handmade handbag at a reasonable price this is the place to come to. Everything worked : payment/deliverey etc were as promised. Highly Recommended.

Ilaria is wonderful and so is her work. Every detail is perfection and she is a total delight. Our visits with her at her lovely shop were a highlight of our trips to Rome and the things she made for my wife and myself are beautiful...we love them!
