    Had a good time but would have been nice to see more Italian vendors there. Enjoyed the music and pretty good production-style food. Nice to see sfogiatelle and napoleons in Charlotte!

    Thought that we would be there a couple of hours, but went through it in 20 minutes. No seating to eat, only a few tables of items. Nada's table was good free samples of tasty food.

    Loved it but it would have been extra good if the vendors there would have been selling more "Italian" items. Like the artist that was there: I would have loved to see some paintings of Italy for sale.

    Brought most of our family to this event and we planned on spending a few hours there. 1 sister from Maine, 1 sister from Michigan, one daughter from Greensboro and one daughter from Charleston. We were through the event in about 10 minutes. Very difficult to find the event building as directional signage in the many, many parking lots were not there. Hopefully the vendors did well, we thank the organizers for putting this together, but we do not plan on making a special trip next year as we are 1 1/2 hours away.

    Had a great time .... hopefully next year it will be alittle better organized as there was no signs to tell you where to go in and maybe more seating too. The food was good and great entertainment!!
