The tour was informative and it would’ve been even better if we could see the whole milling process in action.
Jessica did a great job. Owner Ann was also available to answer questions. Ron too joined our tour and provide more insight into the milling and producing of olive oil. Really enjoyed the chickens and roster along with seeing the baby chicks. Overall a GREAT experience.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The tour and tasting were very informative and I didn’t feel rushed. All our questions were answered.
Very interesting organic farm Oliver grow and oil production. It is beautiful and peaceful place to visit
Very interesting tour, tasty tasting, and hospitality was great.
We enjoyed our tasting and tour very much! I think it was a challenging day to visit as it was raining and cold, so I suspect the "flow" of the visit needed to be altered. Our only suggestion would be to seat the guests somewhere inside while you are presenting an overview and history of the farm-it was awkward standing in the entryway for the lengthy introduction. The only other feedback I received from my guests was there was too much technical information to absorb it all. Overall, we enjoyed the farm, the staff was exceptional and we felt a warm welcome from all! Everyone in the group purchased products so I believe it was successful visit!
Everyone was so friendly. I loved the education from following the little Olive from tree to our tasting table. Questions were gladly answered And understood. It was our first time actually tasting olive oil. Charcuterie Plate was delicious and the wine was perfect For our nibbles. I will let all my coworkers and friends about you. And I am Going to sign up for your cooking classes. Thank you for a great day rain or shine it was perfect. Faith and Mike Hornbek
Enjoyed learning the whole process. Appreciated the food pairing with the oil and vinegar tasting
Educational, informative and interesting tour with a very tasty finish.
This was a great day led by Ann, Ron and the Il Fiorello team... we were treated to great foods, oil tastings, and given such a comprehensive tour. It was such a personal and wonderful time. Thank You!
Mary was delightful! She gave an informative and cheerful tour.
I did not have a pre-conceived idea of what to expect so was pleasantly surprised by the property, the tour, the product and the knowledge and information gained. Thank you!
Tour is very educational and the guide very knowledgeable. Answered all our questions, very informative and the grounds are beautiful and peaceful. Was a little put off when having our wine and Charcuterie in the outside patio, as some guests had 3-4 yr olds running around causing commotion. Staff had to come out and ask that the children not run into the orchards. But this is no fault of Il Fiorello. I just think this is no place for kids under a certain age. The charcuterie was very delicious and recommend having. I was surprised of the stone ground mustard with lavender. So many combinations of flavors you can make with that plate. The wine pours are very generous..... I would be back. Also used the Leccino as a finishing oil in some Frutti di Mare which I made the next day, it was a perfect pairing.

Third time taking tour and tasting with different family members. Learn something new each time and always happy & surprised at how impressed everyone is with the tour.
Tour was given by the owner and a new employee who were both excellent. It was extremely detailed, in depth and comprehensive. Worth every penny and the tasting is fantastic.
Gained a great deal of knowledge about olive oil we used it for cooking but little else. Joe was great and I am sure we will be using olive oil much different in the future!
My husband and I had a great visit at II Fiorello Oil company! Our guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. There is so much more to Olive Oil than I knew and we both enjoyed learning about the subject and getting to taste test several of their products. Anne, one of the owners, was also very helpful with her knowledge and we enjoyed getting to talk with her a bit about olive oil as well as Italian cooking. It was a fun day and I highly recommend it.
They are great hosts and very informative.
We learned a lot, we were given ample time to view the property (including the olives, the mill, and the other plants), and all of our questions were answered. Our children were treated respectfully (whereas, at some places, it's obvious that children aren't really welcome). The olive oils and balsamic vinegars were delicious. It was a great experience for our family! And everything that we ordered was well-packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Thank you!
Our guide, Cara (sorry I can't remember her name, but she said she's worked there about a year!) was very professional, informative and fun all wrapped up together. Your grounds are beautiful so that made the day and experience that much better.
Our T-bird club had a wonderful time touring the facility and enjoyed the olive tasting with wonderfully prepared appetizers. Our club is always looking for exciting destinations and your grounds were beautiful and the stories were very enjoyable. I hope other automobile clubs will take advantage of your hospitality.
Welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable staff and customer service, amazing olive oil and food in a lovely visitor center in gorgeous natural setting. Thank you, we had an amazing time and will definitely come back!
Outstanding tour. It was very informative and our guide was excellent. We really enjoyed the tasting and food pairings at the end. The tour was about the right length and pace.
The grounds are beautiful, the olive oils and balsamica very good, and our guide was delightful.
What a great afternoon out!!! I learned a lot, had great treats to eat, topped off w wine. See what I mean!?! Take the tour def worth the time and money spent. Superb!!!
On a perfectly beautiful Saturday, we shared our tour and olive oil and wine tastings with five other congenial people. The tour of the property and olive oil press area was very interesting and informative, as were the olive oil tastings.And we got to go home with some of your lovely olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top of all that! We had such a good time that we decided to stay on and relax on the patio with a charcuterie board and a glass of wine, followed by some olive oil gelato. To top all of that off, we got to go down to the mobile chicken coop to meet the hens and check for eggs. It was just such a pleasant way to spend the day. Thank you!
Very interesting Very knowledgeable people. Fabulous olive oil Especially liked jalapeño lime olive oil
Not only was the tour and tasting very enjoyable, it was also very informative. It was an A+ experience.
We really enjoyed our tour with Ron, learned a lot about olive oil and enjoyed the tastings. Thanks for a great time!
Personalized tour, great tour guide, yummy sampling of oils and food pairing.
Very educational, the grounds are very nice Joe was a great tour guide. I will be back with friends.
I learned more about olives and the difference between the different types of oil
It was an amazing tour at the Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company! Thanks to Groupon that we discovered this hidden gam in our neighborhood. We took a couple from NY there. All four of us felt it exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Joe was very courteous and knowledgeable. The oil tasting with carefully paired food followed by wine tasting was quite enjoyable and interesting, and the experience educational. The highlight was the conversation with the owner Anne who shared some of her extensive knowledge with olive oil and food industry with us. We appreciated the tour experience and would highly recommend it! Other than tasting tours, the company offers verities of events and activities (information available on their website). Our feeling is that everyone should be able to find something interesting in attending one or more of the events/tour programs. We will certainly go back and join some of them.
I had no idea this beautiful facility was right in our own backyard! The friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, staff made our visit quite enjoyable. Quality products for sale, gave us an opportunity to take memories home with us and share what we learned on tour with others. I am looking forward to visiting again and possibly taking a class/classes in the future.
