The weather was cool, 42 degrees upon arrival in Stonewall,Tx. The landscape was very much to our liking. upon entering our room, OMG! it was breath taking! The room was warm, Christmas tree was lit, and our cheese tray was to die for. It was, '' Bellisimo!''
We enjoyed our stay in late December, just before Christmas. Buona Sera was beautifully and tastefully decorated. It was also very clean! Attention to detail was given! I liked the album full of information on the local restaurants and winery's and theaters, our comfort was on the Inn Keepers mind when they designed our stay. Having breakfast at our leisure in our room was both delicious and thoughtful. Thank you, we hope to visit you again soon.
We stayed in the Amore. Although it is located across from a feed store (not the best view), the Nannis have made a great effort to make you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. A nice touch was the lighted Christmas tree to add to the holiday feeling. Very cute-nice furnishings, comfortable beds and plenty of space. Our grandchildren came over for the day and enjoyed playing in the back yard. The patio area was a plus with a fire pit to sit around under the stars. Bill and Amber were extremely friendly and were accessible but we didn't feel like they were hovering over us. The only drawback are the bath facilities and that's only if you are a larger person.There's a teeny shower that was fine for us but not for a claustrophobic, so we opted to give our friends the room with the big tub and handheld shower sprayer. It would be nice if a curtain was put around the tub so it could be used as a shower also. Amber's breakfasts are delicious and such a nice thing to not have to get up and drive into town for. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay and WILL return again.
We had a wonderful visit to wine country in Fredricksburg, TX and were delighted with our stay at The Italian Place. We stayed in Bueno Sera. It was a lovely one bedroom, one bath with a small kitchen area. It was just perfect for my husband and I. We met Amber, our host, very briefly. She was very nice. This bed and breakfast is definitely one that I would recommend if you are looking for one that is close to the wineries. Breakfast was placed in our room the night before, coffee is available for you in the morning, everything was very convenient. We were very satisfied with our stay!
I called Amber and requested her assistance in creating "an experience". We had birthdays to celebrate and needed a kitchen table around which to gather and connect over food and drink. The Amore and the Bona Sera comfortably accommodated 6. The full kitchen in the Amore was our gathering spot. We prepared and ate our first evening meal in home-like comfort. Amber and Bill filled our refrigerator each evening with food for breakfast at our convenience. In the mornings, we gathered at the Amore kitchen table for quiche, or breakfast Burritos, muffins, yogurt, fresh fruit and coffee, coffee and more coffee. We had more food than we could eat. The accommodations are perfectly appointed -- interesting and uncluttered. The jet-tubs and fireplaces were appreciated. The mattresses are firm and comfortable and the bedding perfect for a good nights rest. The Inn Keepers are the best! Bill and Amber have the ability to be present and available but they don't insert themselves into your experience. They are gracious and kind. We used the bicycles for a beautiful ride along the Pedernales River, and enjoyed a late night around the fire pit that Bill ignited for us. I am looking forward to returning soon.
My girlfriend treated for a surprise-visit to the Texas Wine Country and our first experience in a B&B. All I can say is that I was completely impressed by the experience we had at the Italian Place. From the moment we arrived, Bill and Amber, the owners, greeted us like friends and introduced us to the rest of the guests, which were also very friendly. We only stayed for one night and while we had dinner reservations ready, we really appreciated how Bill and Amber took us to the Stonewall Fish Fry along with their friends and made us feel very welcome. In terms of the rooms, the ambience is cozy but still elegant and very romantic, and the pre-prepared in-room breakfast was delicious and convenient since you can eat it at your leisure. It was an overall great experience and just wish we would have planned to stay longer.
This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it was a great one! We loved the house. It was a chilly, rainy weekend but we enjoyed watching some DVDs cuddled up in the living room. The attention to detail in every corner of this home is astounding. They didn't miss a thing. We hope to return again soon and doubt our future experiences at other bed and breakfasts will compare to our first with you guys! THANK YOU!
This place was very cozy, clean, and charming! The owners were friendly, I loved the bikes, and breakfast was delicious! I would def. recommend this to anyone staying in that area. Just 15 min from Fredricksburg and close to many wineries it was a great location! I would love to stay here again!
We have stayed before and always love it. This trip was not a pleasure trip but we still enjoyed our stay at Amore. Lots of room and charm. Part of our family stayed with us and loved the place as much as we did.
Our recent weekend to the hill country was a pleasant experience thanks to The Italian Place. Our room, Bellissimo, was more than we expected. We arrive on Friday afternoon, helped ourselves to the room and headed to the winery. We returned that evening around 7 pm only to be greated by Amber Nanni. Soon after she delivered the special breakfast she prepared for our consumption the following morning. I must say the food was excellent. My only problem wiht the entire weekend was it ended too soon. Next time we might choose a differnt room. The shower and toilet area was a little small in Bellissimo and those stairs are brutal after a long visit to the wine tasting room. I would recommend this stay to anyone looking for accommodations near the wineries.
For our first B&B experience The Italian Place set the bar high! It was such a relaxing environment with the great outdoor space. Our hosts were so friendly and excellent chefs! We got to eat at our leisure and the portions were incredible. So many different breakfast options from fruit to burritos to yogurt to quiche. Stonewall is the perfect location to wineries, Luckenbach and Fredericksburg. We were able to experience the hill country within a few minutes drive to all the local events. I highly recommend this little bed and breakfast for anyone, including dog owners! Our little pup got along great with the 2 poodles who live here. I hope to be back in the fall or winter to use the gorgeous fireplace in our room. Thank you very much for our weekend getaway :-)
My husband and I got to stay at the Italian place just overnight; however, I would've stayed there for DAYS if we had the opportunity to! We very rarely are able to take any time away from our busy work schedule of providing Wine Tours to the Texas Hill Country, so when the opportunity to get away for one day presented itself, we took advantage -Fast. Booking with the Italian Place was so easy. We stayed in the Bellissimo, and from the minute we walked in, we could not have felt more at home. As a service company, we know that "The Experience" is what keeps clients coming back again and again. The miniature bottle of Prosecco and absolutely huge fruit and cheese tray that greeted us were lovely and artfully arranged. All the furnishings we welcoming and cozy. We could literally feel our stress level from the workday, dissolving away. Amber popped up to introduce herself and welcome us just before we headed out to visit a local winery. She made sure we had everything we needed and let us know that our breakfast treats for the morning would be in the fridge when we returned. Everything was just as she said it would be and we could not have been happier. We would highly recommend the Italian Place for anyone who wants a romantic and comfortable get away for two, close to Fredericksburg. We hope to have a chance to stay again soon.

Our whole stay was so relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. Breakfast was always really good, our room was very so inviting, I haven't slept that well in a long time and it was a nice treat to walk out and see sheep next door each morning (don't worry, they are very quiet). Bill and Amber were wonderful. They suggested a few places for dinner, plus the "Welcome" book was really helpful. We hope to visit again.
Shariffah and Carmelo Canino. We love this place and already planned to return before the trip was over. We have recommended it to many friends already. All the reviews we read before we booked it were true.
We found a quaint, peaceful spot in Stonewall at The Italian Place. The hosts, Amber and Bill were wonderful and made us feel welcome. I especially appreciated the wonderful breakfast left for us in the fridge. It was great to get up, make coffee and have breakfast available when we wanted it. And it was delish!!
We really enjoyed our stay in Amore. The unit is so spacious and beautiful! We also loved that it was pet friendly... it was great to have a good spot for our pooches. The breakfast was delicious and enough for breakfast and lunch too! Being located so close to several wineries was a definite plus and just a short drive to Fredericksburg. Amber and Bill are the best hosts! We will definitely be back and will recommend it to our friends!
I cannot begin to describe this place other then giving the feel of a home away from home. It is simply adorable with curb appeal plus. The couple that run it, Amber and Bill.....are the BEST! We have come back as a result and I now consider them friends. The breakfasts Amber prepares are simply scrumptious (quiche, burritos, muffins, fruit, juice, coffee). And on our departure she made up the cutest little chocolate kiss choc covered cherry mice with almond slivers for ears! The grounds are well kept and the rooms are very clean. We have stayed in all three units at this point and recommend all three of them depending on your needs. I look forward to my next visit! Thank you Amber and Bill for once again making our stay fabulous! Cheers!
Bill and Amber were excellent hosts who helped make my wife's birthday extra special. Their attention to detail as well as the super cleanliness of the room made our stay very memorable. The breakfasts were remarkable. My wife especially enjoyed the quishe. We will stay here again, and recommend it to anyone we know. Thank you mr. And mrs. Nanni.
This was a last minute reservation because we initially wanted to stay in the town of Fredericksburg. So glad we ended up in Stonewall instead. We LOVED this B&B and plan to go next year when we pick up our son from camp. Never get rid of the treehouse - my boy loved it!
My wife and I were looking for a place to stay near Luckenbach so we wouldn't have to deal with a long drive after the day. Our room was small and private and just perfect for a quiet night. My wife was worried about this place being so out of the way, but by the end of the trip she was already talking about coming back.
My wife and I stayed here to experience the 290 Wine Trail. This was a perfect location to visit a number of wineries. The place itself was extremely charming and very comfortable. I love the fact that breakfast was in the fridge in our room the night before so in the morning my wife and I could take our time and enjoy breakfast in bed with coffee. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for a great stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Italian Place. Everything was wonderful. The breakfasts were great! We loved everything about it! Friendly people and loved the animals! We would highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be back!
