Went to La Ricerca today to stock up on marbled paper notebooks. I think this was my fourth visit in 15 years. This is the best paper store I’ve found anywhere. They have traditional and also some unusual designs. Their little square notepads with the...More

This is a lovely shop, full of gorgeous paper and notecards. They're handmade and quality pieces. However the owner was unnecessarily rude to my travel companion, which left a sour taste in my mouth. If the owner does not like tourists, then he shouldn't have...More

This shop is worth looking for. Beautiful paper and hand bound leather books. You can even get murano glass put into your journal, phone book, whatever. And the shopkeeper is a craftsman with tons of passion.

Lovely shop offering wonderful handmade stationery. We treated ourselves to a beautiful album, with marbled cover, but the shop offers a fantastic range of exquisite goods.

I'm so glad to have stumbled upon this treasure. What a beautiful and lost craft. This store sells mostly custom paper, cards, stationary, notebooks, etc. I fell in love with a large original piece of marbled paper with turquoise / aqua tones. It is unique,...More
