About Parla Come Mangi
ParlaComeMangi è una Bottega-Enoteca tradizionale all'italiana. Conosciamo il nostro Mestiere da sempre, che si è tramandato nelle generazioni della nostra famiglia. Abbiamo negli anni raccolto conoscenze preziose tra i migliori produttori della penisola. La nostra è una vecchia Scuola, quella del bottegaio artigiano che sceglie, viaggia, discute dei prodotti, li assaggia, li affetta, li confeziona a mano per il suo cliente. Il nostro miglior prodotto è la coerenza di aver scelto prodotti (dal formaggio, al cappero, alla confettura, al prosciutto...) che stiano in armonia tra loro, perché sono tutti prodotti con grande passione e talento e che i prodotti di questi artigiani tu possa trovarli sempre sui nostri scaffali, perché in loro crediamo e ne siamo diventati amici.
