La Vita è Dolce is a peach of a book, which makes you feel that life is sweet, at least when you have a gelato in your hand. Letitia Clark, whose first book Bitter Honey, celebrated the food of Sardinia, has an extraordinary feeling both for the food of Italy and for sweet foods, from biscotti to panna cotta, from fruit tarts to green lemon posset. The recipes and photographs have a sunny kind of magic to them. Reading it put me in an instantly better mood. ― Bee Wilson
