  • 6th for a 10g jar of curry when there are flowers of online and non-online shops (a historic and a newer one also in Rome itself) that at the same figure give at least 40g of high quality curry. Ask for prices before spending more on spices than for the rice (or chicken) you want to cook.

  • A year ago I bought a coupon on groupon for a sushi course for two people, as an anniversary gift for my boyfriend. More than a month before the deadline I tried to call the "official" number that appeared on the coupon, to book the course, unfortunately to no avail because the number was non-existent. I then searched on fb, where I found a second phone number that I was able to write about on whatsapp. One girl answered me, saying that the courses that month would not be there and that I could still take advantage of the coupon even after the deadline because I had informed her in time. To my "then I wait for you to contact me?" I was answered "relax". Two months later no one contacted me, after I wrote several times I was given different and confusing information. When I managed to find the date for the course I was asked for the coupon code, I sent it and immediately I got a message from the "official" number that it was written that my coupon had expired. I called and was told that I would have to say the code right away so as not to lose the coupon, but no one had asked me and I couldn't know!!! The gentleman I spoke to also let slip a "eh these are the tricks of the trade" (?????) then told me that I could still do the course and that I would be sent the available dates as soon as possible. On November 27th the girl contacted me to tell me a wrong date when in truth there was no availability. Since that day I have tried several times to send messages asking for information and no one has ever answered me. At this point I give up, I'm really sorry because I thought I had relied on the right people to make a nice gift, instead I made a figure and I feel teased.

  • We took a spice course from him and opened up a wonderful world, a kind of country of the balaclavas all to discover and have fun in. He travels the world in search of lesser-known spices or even the best known, but of the best quality. Huge passion and enormous expertise, I strongly recommend to go there.

The gentleman with whom I spoke was also allowed to escape a "Eh these are the tricks of the Trade" (?????) then told me that I could do the course anyway and that I would be sent the dates available as soon as possible. On November 27th I contacted the girl to tell me a wrong date where in truth there was no availability. Since that day I tried several times to send messages to ask for information and no one has ever responded.

  • A small pharmacy managed with love and sincere passion by Franco Calafatti, Master of Spices and Giramondo. In addition to selling spices and mixes of its creation, Franco holds courses on the use of spices and on the creation of sushi, with great competence and ability of involvement. Not to be missed!

  • Well it is an experience that must be done. Franco Calafatti, the Manager, is a type that cannot be that ... him to handle a similar situation. Very personable and expert in the field of spices, knows all and describes the properties in great detail. Who goes there, enjoy the intense perfume of spices that you feel as soon as you enter: unique. Recommended

  • Bad experience.... Not to say disappointing and catastrophic... I recommend to the owner to take more seriously appointments and events booked in order not to find his customers in a cellar crumbling and dusty. A hen party ruined.
