What they're saying about shopping in Rome with Natalia and Dolce Rome Personal Shopper

March 2009

Dear Natalia,

It was wonderful to have you guide me through the most amazing shops Rome has to offer. It was not my first time in Rome but it was definitely the most memorable. You introduced me not only to the previously unknown shops and brands, you have given me a crash course in what Italian fashion is all about. I learned so much about what is 'in' and about the subtleties of dressing with an Italian twist. Of course, it helped a lot that my teacher in Italian fashion was someone blessed with innate exquisite taste. I am dreaming about coming back soon for more. Hope to see you soon!

Take care,
Natalia, Cairo / Egypt

I’ve been visiting and shopping in Rome for 10 years. On my last two visits, November 2007 and this May I used the services of a personal shopper Natalia Bianchi at dolce Roma.  Natalia has access to private ateliers and designers that cater exclusively to Roman women and she knows where to find the best of everything. Zip  arround Rome with her in her smart car and along the way find out about the best restaurants, chicest bars and current art shows. Her restaurant recommendations made my concierge’s eyes light up and resulted in some of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. I live in Beverly Hills where we have great shopping and fine dining and I’ve already emailed Natalia my arrival date this November. If you’re going to Rome contact Natalia.

Very truly yours,
Judith Rubins

Dear Natalia,

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful day we spent together in Rome. You did not just take us to shops and stores we sure would not have found ourselves, but you also gave us a brief explanation of the historical places we passed by. My husband was a bit reluctant at first to have this shopping tour, but now that it is all over and we are safely back home, he says that the day he enjoyed the most in Italy was the day spent with you! Everyone back home loved the clothes I came back with! and it was a pleasure just to meet and know you! The taxi you sent to pick us up to the airport was wonderful, the car was clean and the driver was nice. My husband is already making plans for next year, he wants to rent an apartment from you because he thinks you are a modest and nice person.

My best regards,

Ciao Natalia,

We so enjoyed spending time with you and appreciate your expertise and energy! You display top notch customer service, and we would recommend you to anyone headed for Rome.

We also checked out your apartments on your website. They are darling, and we will be sure to let others know about them.

I have not carried my purse yet, but I receive constant compliments on my ring. I get stopped all over town with people wanting a closer look. Please let Paulo know that meeting him and purchasing my ring was definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

Hope all is well with you, and that you aren't working too hard.

Thanks again!

Dear Natalia,

Our stay recently in your apartment in Campo de' Fiori was fabulous. The location was perfect and made it so easy to get around the city. Your help on the first day in getting "our bearings" was great with your maps, transportation information and restaurant recommendations. The apartment was quite spacious and well equipped. We felt right at home. But---the most spectacular part of our stay was the day you spent taking us on your private tours to the Benedictine Abbey in Farfa Sabina, the winery of Tenuta Santa Lucia, the family who made the Pecorino cheesesand the visit to Luciana's estate and finally, the visit to Casperia, the medieval castle village. Each of these tours by themself, let alone the opportunity to see all of these with you, were unforgettable. Sharing the foods, wine and spirit of the Italian people made our vacation truly memorable. We had such a wonderful time and appreciate all your help in making the arrangements so easy. We will certainly recommend your apartment and services to our friends!

Dear Natalia,

I was on a trip in Roma for my birthday and because I turned 30 this year my husband wanted something special for me. He knows I love to go shopping and have not so much time anymore because we just had a baby. This is how I met Natalia. My husband asked her to be my personal shopper in Roma. For me, it was the best birthday present I have ever had. First we discussed what I wanted to buy and see. Then, she took me in various and accurate places. She offered me the possibility to go out of Roma to get tremendous deals. At the end of the day we went to luxury shops where I discovered new Italian designers. She also brought me in this lovely baby shop where I found the cutest outfit from the Simonetta label. But what I appreciated the most was that Natalia gave me advice all along (colors I should where, style, prices,  ... ). It was much better than when I go shopping with my mum or my friends. She is a professional and she has a new "look" on you. She optimised my style: "you should wear good classics but with a little something aggressive" ( I will remember this). When I look back there is nothing I regret having bought and my husband could not believe how much I got for a reasonable budget !! I strongly recommand Natalia, she is a very reliable and friendly person. I hope I would have another opportunity to go shopping with her ...before my 40 birthday !!!!!

Dear Natalia,

Donald and I can't thank you enough for your help on our recent trip to Rome. We had been to Rome once before but, as magnificent as the city is, it is too complicated and diverse to enjoy without guidance. You took the time to understand our priorites and, in one day, showed us more than we could have seen in several days on our own. Your knowledge, energy and natural warmth are exceptional. Again, thank you. You gave so much more than was expected. To be sure, we will return shortly for another Roman holiday -- with you as our guide, of course.

I highly recommend Natalia Bianchi as a personal shopper in Rome. My daughter and I spent a thoroughly enjoyable day with her in February. She is friendly and very informative – you really get a little tour of Rome as you shop. Natalia’s keen sense of style is evident right away and she not only knows where to go, she also offers advice on what looks good and what is a good price.

But, the shopper is always in charge: Natalia never presses you to buy something you don’t want to.

Her good relationship with storekeepers makes you feel very welcome in every shop, but note that Natalia does not receive a commission on purchases her clients make. Natalia knows those hidden gems - stores the average visitors to Rome would never find in her own. She will save you time and money. Thank you Natalia for a lovely day and a great shopping experience.

Dear Natalia -…….a vary big thank you for all your help with friends in Rome.

You are the best personal shopper …..

I could not have done the shopping that we did without your expert contacts that you took us to….I have been in Rome myself shopping but with your help it was the most successful shopping….

I know that we could not have hoped to save the amount of money and also go to places like Bulgari and the fur wholesalers.

Restaurant recommendations were excellent and my partner say that was the best meal he had in Italy..

So once again a very big thank to you…….

All the success with your new venture (I already know you will be successful) and as a local you know all the best places and the right prices….

My sincere gratitude
