I bought this set after nearly a year of looking at dishes to replace my old set. I worried that I would get bored with the plainness, but after 14 months of use, I have to say I love it. It looks good with everything. I have a number of colored pottery serving dishes I use with it, and it looks great. You can put any color with it. and it can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. No matter what I put with it, it looks wonderful. Even food looks more appetizing on it. The color is slightly off-white - a very light cream - which gives it a rich look. The durability it excellent. I've banged it numerous times without chipping. After over a year of daily use, it hasn't shown ANY sign of use. Buy this set. You won't be disappointed.
Great china set and fantastic price. Can't beat the Mikasa quality. The set arrived with some broken plates and Overstock immediately shipped replacement pieces, what great service! If you are looking for an everyday set that is stylish enough for even a more fancy dinner, this is the one. The design makes this a very versatile set because you can certainly make it feel casual, and then dress it up for a more formal occasion. Lastly, I want to point out that I located this pattern on Mikasa's website and I can purchase all the "extras" to match very easily, this is not the case with most china sets.
We bought this set for our second home. The set offers a contemporary feel with classic lines and works with any home style. Each items feels substantial, yet light. Absolutely love it. We have granite countertop in the kitchen and I actually banged plates and cups accidentally on the edge while loading then into the dishwasher and was happy to see that no damage resulted to the pieces - no chipping! Great value and style. Would not mind having the same set in our primary home.
I just received the 45 piece set of Mikasa Italian Countryside dinnerware. I love it, put it straight away into the dishwasher for cleaning before use. It came out beautifully and is even prettier than the pictures. It is slightly off white, so if you are looking for a "true" white dinnerware, this is not it. The set was packaged very securely and arrived in perfect condition via UPS. I highly recommend this set.

These dishes are lovely, and such a great value, especially the 8 place setting set. The pattern is just as shown in the picture; not too frilly, just very appealing. I love that they are both dishwasher and microwave safe. The color is just a bit off white and goes perfectly with my other dishes.
Really like this dinnerware. It has a very nice look for every day as well as special dinners. The cups could have been a little larger and the salad plates a little smaller....but all in all, very pleased with the set.
I love, love, love these dishes!!! I have been admiring them for a while and finally purchased. You will not find these anywhere for a better price! They look and (so far) wear beautifully. They are great for everyday as well as more formal dinners.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great

I'm very happy with these dishes but they are larger than I expected. My kitchen cabinets are about 20 years old and the dinner plates are too large to fit inside the cabinet. I had read other reviews explaining that the bowls and mugs were not what was in the set so I knew about that. Beautiful dishes, I would recommend them.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? dishes are not as white as the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is fine
How accurate was the on site description of the product? bowls were rimmed (not the bowls shown), mugs are teacups and saucers
After having the same dishes for over 16 years, I was ready for a change. An upcoming big dinner party seemed like perfect timing. Overstock had the absolute best pricing. I ordered two different sets. They arrived timely. Of the 61 pieces received (this set and a smaller set) only one salad plate was broken. Customer service was excellent and sent a replacement pronto.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good Description

A further observation to your picture--I believe your picture is of a 16-piece set that does come with the non-rimmed bowls instead of rimmed bowls that come with a 45-piece set. The 16-piece set also comes with mugs verses tea cups & saucers that come with the 45-piece set. Another large difference in the 16-piece set pictured as the 45-piece set is that the 16-piece set comes with no accompaning pieces, ie platter, vegetable bowl, creamer & sugar. Your picture is clearly misrepresenting a 45-piece set.vhaalen2003 on Mar 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I am very interested in purchasing 2 sets of these dishes, however, the picture shows soup bowls w/o a rim and also shows mugs instead of cups & saucers. I am interested in non-rimmed bowls and mugs. Can I get 2 sets that way, but that doesn't make 45 pieces either does it. I have also read the full description of this set and it talkes of cups & saucers & rimmed soup bowls, but that is not what is pictured. Can you explain exactly what I will be getting with this set? I'm confused. I have read the comments by customers and some mention that the picture doesn't match what they received when it comes to the bowls and mugs shown in picture. Please clarify and maybe you need to change your picture. Thank you.vhaalen2003 on Mar 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I will send a request to get the picture updated. Here is a link to the item on the manufacturer's website that you can use for a reference.

soup bowls in photo do not match description of " 9 3/8 inch rimmed soup bowls"
I am interested in soup bowls in photo. NOT a "rimmed" soup bowl. Can I get the bowls in the photo?
