Nice shop and fair* prices - but don't ship

This is a nice shop with an excellent assortment of great ceramics from around Tuscany and Umbria. Prices seem fine ... as long as you don't ship. In fact, treat most anything... read more

Visited in October and loved the shop and in particular, a large hand painted platter. After a couple days shopping around Tuscany we returned to buy the platter. It wasn't cheap at 190 Euro, but they offered to discount it to 170 Euro to help defray shipping. They estimated US shipping with insurance to be 50-60 Euro for that size... More

This store has the cutest ceramics ever! The man working there was very friendly and helpful with choosing which one to get for my mom as a gift. And he wrapped it up for me afterwards!

This is a nice shop with an excellent assortment of great ceramics from around Tuscany and Umbria. Prices seem fine ... as long as you don't ship. In fact, treat most anything Roberto tells you about shipping costs back to the U.S. as pure fabrication to make the sale. We bought a 24" oblong platter and olio dispenser and it... More

The owner was very friendly and helpful as I looked for some Tuscan pottery. He shipped it back to the U.S. And the packing was phenomenal. It all arrived in tact within 2 weeks of purchase date.

We placed a custom order with Roberto on our visit to Sienna and are extremely pleased with our pottery. Roberto was always kind, helpful and responsive to my email inquiries, and he communicated extremely well in English. We received a beautiful platter that was exactly what we wanted! We will definitely visit Gift Shop 5 on our next trip to... More

I ordered a large ceramic platter to be custom made and shipped to the US. It arrived damaged. Gift Shop #5 used MailBoxes Etc to ship. MBE used Fed Ex. FedEx denied the claim because there was no external damage to the box. Gift Shop #5 and MBE won't even respond to my emails. I paid over $400 for the... More

Selected a few small items and a large bowl during our visit in late October 2013. And had shipped. Definitely a bit nervous with a large purchase yet did not want to handle purchases for our return flight to the US. Items arrived in less than a month without damage due to well packaging. Worth the money as to its... More

We visited Tuscany in May, 2013 and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in Siena. We stopped by Gift Shop #5 and ordered an oval platter, discussed the specific design we wanted on the plate, and paid the bill. When I got home, the charge appeared on my Amex card for $660.50. I'm still waiting for the platter and it's been 120... More
