Benvenuti! Welcome!


Your first stop before planning a trip to Italy!  
  • Where the language, the culture and the life style of Italians are infused with the flavors of home-made cooking to bring you a taste of Italy
  • Where you will experience what Italians call la dolce vita (the sweet life) right here at home, in the heart of Silvermine! 

The setting where classes are held is the 1826 historic colonial home named after the original owners, Cynthia and Steven Gregory, in the heart of Silvermine, the quaint historic section of Norwalk, CT. 
Cynthia and Stephen Gregory's 1826 historic home has been featured in local newspapers and opened to the public during the "Silvermine Historic Home Tour" in September 2006.

Lee DeMilo was born and raised in San Lorenzello, a rural Southern Italian town in the Province of Benevento, in the Region Campania. This small "paese" (little town) that sits at the base of Mount Erbano and on the banks of the River Titerno and stretches over the hills of vineyards and olive trees is also home to poets, artists and craftsmen.  Although she has lived in the United States for more than 30 years, DeMilo has always shared her love between the two cultures for her soul has never left her roots and her heart has never forgotten the precious memories of her childhood.
