These bowls were exactly what I was looking for. After doing a search on the internet and in stores for pasta bowls, I found that there really isn't much of a choice out there. The color is rich and bold and more vivid than it appears in the pictures. The size is perfect for pasta, soup or salad. The weight is solid and not fragile. Recommend handwashing. Any food presented in these will have that "wow" factor. Very pretty!
The same as picture, looks hand-painted which means they are not perfect. They will chip if handled roughly. I got two very small chips in the glaze but since then I have handled them carefully and have had no more. I wash them in the dishwasher and they're fine. They're just what I wanted.
I really liked the bowls online but when they arrived (beautifully packaged) they were even nicer than the photos. My husband and I love the looks, the size and the weight (not heavy which I feared). I put them in the dishwasher with no trouble too. Highly recommended. Thank you.
These bowls are just as they appear on the page although the most important thing to note is that the color can vary widely between bowls. That mainly applies to the color red which can vary from light salmon to the deep Orange Red that you see in the picture. In addition, there are many different artists at work on these bowls and it shows. I don't mind the variation but if you are a stickler for uniformity, these will make you crazy. One bowl is missing the repeat pattern of a small color completely.They hold the same amount of pasta as my old bowls from Italy and I am so happy to have something at a reasonable price that is not from China.
If you like the photo, order them. Red is a little brighter than photo, but that's what I was hoping for. Was a little concerned they might be a little too busy, they aren't. And even though they make sure to note that these are handmade so nothing can be EXACT, they are darn close; I didn't noticed anything 'off'. Buy them!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Very close, red was even brighter which is what I was hoping for.

You are not just buying dinnerware but works of art. I am in awe how beautiful each piece is and each one is a bit different. Amazing how fine a studio Le Souk is to produce such fine craftmans and the work they do.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? better
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
I have a feeling that the best craftsmanship and detailing were not done on this set. They are OK, but having seen other pieces from the region - I know there are a lot better designs out there. I am not going to return them, but I wouldn't buy more pieces of this same design.
