Hello, Alessio and Giovanni here. We are both from Italy and we both live in NY with our families. After long discussions on the reasons why much of the best artisanal Italian food is not easily available in the US, we decided to start-up Italynthebox. We want you to have a chance to taste these culinary gems and to know their stories in a simple and convenient way.
Instead of asking you to explore each Italian village for the most palatable delicacies, we are bringing them to you with two simple subscriptions:
- 1 box every 4 weeks: $22/month (find great deals in the rewards section)
- 1 box every two weeks: $40/month (as above)
Each box is a curated collection of six hand-picked products by our Team in Italy. You will find about two servings of each product in your box.
It will take you one bite to start a gastronomic expedition that will make you feel you are there.
We don't lock you in. You can pause or cancel at any time.
- Pick your subscription and receive a box every two or four weeks;
- Receive your box and enjoy the two servings of each of the six delicious products. Learn their origins on our blog.
- Order Full Sized Products. Use our app, website or text us to order your faves in the quantity you desire.
Every box is different. We are traveling Italy to pick artisanal products across a broad spectrum of flavors. Our inspirations will be seasons, festivities and regions.
Examples of what you will find include, but not only: bread products, honey, cheese, chocolate, cookies, cold cuts, sauces, dips, cakes and much more.
Typically, you will find two servings for each product.
Your support will allow us to source from more places in Italy and to bring to the US more authentic, delicious, 100% Italian food.
Italynthebox is a members-only service with two subscriptions:
- 1 box every 4 weeks: $22/month
- 1 box every two weeks: $40/month
Don't miss the great deals below, those are exclusive to Backers. This is great for gifting as well!
A donation to us does not lock you inside an ongoing subscription. After you receive your reward, you can become a Italynthebox member if you'd like!
$35,000 and receive 1 case of Portofino Lemonade
At this milestone, all our Backers will receive a case of sparkling lemonade made with Portofino lemons (twelve 8.45 Oz bottles).
The bouquet is dominated by the intense aroma of lemons followed by elegant notes of elderflowers. The bubbles on the palate go well together with the strong tang of the lemons, which ends in a sweet finish. Forever delicious and refreshing. Don't miss it!
Once funded and activities start, for every transaction Italynthebox will donate to one of the following charitable organizations who fight hunger in the US:

Artisanal, locally produced food represents the best of Italian excellence. Knowledge is orally transmitted through generations of skilled craftsmen, recipes can date back centuries and attention to quality is unparalleled. Often, ingredients come in small quantities and production only allows for small batches resulting in the large majority of these incredible products being unknown to the US audience. Still, they make some of the best memories of any traveler to Italy.
Risks and challenges
Giovanni has a multi-decade experience in food production, distribution and delivery. A logistic platform to store, handle and ship boxes is already in place as well as a team in Italy to source products. A long enough list of culinary gems and agreements with vendors is also in place.
We do not really see significant challenges, however we will never cut corners and we'll always deliver on our promise of bringing to the US 100% Italian, outstanding and artisanal food solely.
