"Luca Spaghetti is not only one of my favorite people in the world, but also a natural-born storyteller. . . . This [is a] marvelous book." -Elizabeth Gilbert

When Luca Spaghetti (yes, that's really his name) was asked to show a writer named Elizabeth Gilbert around Rome, he had no idea how his life was about to change. She embraced his Roman ebullience, and Luca in turn became her guardian angel, determined that his city would help Liz out of her funk.

Filled with colorful anecdotes about food, language, soccer, daily life in Rome, and Luca's own fish-out-of-water moments as a visitor to the United States-and culminating with the episodes in Liz's bestselling memoir, told from Luca's side of the table-Un Amico Italiano is a book that no fan of Eat, Pray, Love will want to miss.

I slogged my way through almost 3/4s of this boring memoir before giving up. In short: "Who cares?"

This book is an interesting spin off of Eat, Pray, Love. In which Luca Spaghetti (featured in the above novel) tells his life story and version of events. I found that though generally the book was interesting, there were parts that I found a little slow and my attention would wander. All it all though, a decent read.
