His name became famous due to his encounter with Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the bestselling book Eat, Pray, Love. He is none other than the character ‘creatively’ named... Luca Spaghetti.
When Luca Spaghetti (yes, that's really his name) was asked to show a writer called Elizabeth around Rome, he had no idea how his life was about to change. She embraced his Roman ebullience, and Luca in turn became her guardian angel, determined that his city would help Liz out of her funk.
Filled with colourful anecdotes about food, language, soccer, daily life in Rome, and culminating with the episodes in Liz's bestselling memoir told from Luca's side of the table – this is a book that every traveller to Rome will find enriching and no fan of Eat, Pray, Love will want to miss.
'Luca writes with as much charm and warmth as he speaks – [he] is not only one of my favourite people in the world, but also a natural-born storyteller… This [is a] marvellous book, which I cannot recommend highly enough' Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
