“Love this magazine for its unique take on luxury. The post on pets made my day and I agree that the best dog deserves a luxury bed from Good Night Dog, and no expense should be spared to provide a good night's sleep for your favorite canine! The food and wine sections are fabulous, and my wife always reads the fashion pages. This is a hit in my house!”
- Carlo Spinelli, Isla Vista, CA

“Bravo, In Buona Salute Magazine! This is the best thing that has happened to the Italian-American culture in years.”
