After each watched episode, I can feel my face has a beaming smile stuck on it. I haven't seen such a beautifully made family friendly TV series in a long, long time. Casting is perfect and the characters are easy to warm up to in a matter of few episodes. I've missed an episode once and felt miserable to miss out on great acting and amusing Italian culture. If you love Italy, this one is a must! The story telling is effortless, and while some plot twists are predictable, I couldn't see most of them coming. The characters evoke empathy and cheering, and once you get hooked, getting up to fetch a cup of espresso will be mission impossible. You can feel the writer put their heart into the dialog, and missing a single second of it is a sin.
