In Italy, this style of piatto fondo (deep plate) was found in countryside homes and used for every course since the 1800s. Today, you’ll still find this kind of plate in every Italian kitchen. This collection is affectionately known as A Pranzo dalla Nonna – “Lunch at Nonna’s” – because that’s exactly how your grandmother would dish out multiple servings of fresh handmade pasta during a big Sunday lunch.

 

Choose from five hand-painted Italian phrases:

  • Domani inizio la dieta – I’ll start my diet tomorrow
  • L’appetito vien mangiando – a traditional Italian saying, meaning “Eating awakens the appetite” – OUT OF STOCK
  • L’ingrediente segreto è l’amore – The secret ingredient is love – OUT OF STOCK
  • Ho ancora fame – I’m still hungry! – OUT OF STOCK
  • L’amore passa, la fame no – Love fades, hunger doesn’t

What to know:

  • Enamelware made in Slovenia, then custom hand-painted in Italy
  • Handwash very gently! Only warm water, no abrasive sponges or sharp tools. The painted phrases are not glazed.
  • Never put in the microwave or dishwasher

Enamelware with hand-painted phrases.

Care Instructions

These dishes can get hot! Handle with care when serving your soups or pasta in brodo. To keep your dishes in good shape, hand wash in cold water with a non-abrasive sponge and gentle dish detergent. Note: the hand-painted phrases are heat-treated but not glazed. Abrasive sponges and sharp knives will scratch the hand-painted decoration. To protect the hand-painted designs, dishwasher cleaning is also not recommended. Nota bene: never put your enamel bowls in the microwave.

Festive and fun

I gave them as a gift and the couple loved them. Check them out on Instagram under SpencerAnnArbor.

Gorgeous

Exactly what I wanted them to be and more. They are tin so they hold the heat of the pasta as beautifully as they display it. Perfect size. Pretty enough to display but too good not to use!

Enamel bowls

So adorable! And the perfect size for pasta too. I love how lightweight the bowls are, and even though they can't go in the dishwasher, it's really easy to clean them with warm, soapy water.

The cutest piece of Italy in my kitchen

My Italian phrase bowl makes me almost as happy as the pasta I put in it! It’s perfect. I want them all.
