Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristyJ Can't recommend highly enough
I've had the Mikasa Italian Countryside dinnerware and many of the accessories for years. I had put off purchasing the flatware as I already had a nice Reed & Barton set, also purchased from QVC, that went well enough. But I finally decided I wanted to complete the look. Having not seen them in person I was a bit skeptical as my R&B was more ornate and these looked so simple. However, when they arrived and I saw them in person and held them in my hands, I was sold. They are so much weightier and more impressive than my R&B (which is still a fine set) but there's just no comparison. And they look better in person too. The picture doesn't do them justice. You have to feel them. And I love the concave level/depth of this spoon. Most others have a far more gentle and flatter depth. Wish I'd bought it years ago.

Love the Italian Countryside pattern in both stoneware and flatware.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cap48 this is a set I'll be building on for some time
The Italian Countryside is a beautiful, never to be outdated, classic. It is so elegant, and yet, usable for every day. Combining it with place settings of solid color makes a beautiful table. I love the spring floral and Christmas plate add ons too.
