These dishes are much better than I expected . We were looking for something new - neutral but stylish, that was good for everyday. The color is a nice warm yellow ( I was afraid it might be too bright). Both the dinner plates and bowls are larger than most. And they're not too heavy or clunky . I'd definately use these for special occassions. I wish there was a completer set in the same color, but the Rio completer set comes only in white which compliments all the Rio colors. I'm planning to buy it anyway. I've made many purchases on Overstock, and am always delighted with the quality and the delivery time.
