Product Description

The stunning simplicity of this dinnerware will lend elegance to any tabletop. Ribbed accents and a scroll border trim combine for tactile interest. Set includes 8 dinner plates, 8 salad plates, 8 soup plates, 8 cups, 8 saucers, 1 vegetable bowl, 1 buffet platter, 1 covered sugar bowl and 1 creamer.

Mikasa combines pleasing texture with a solid white finish to create an enduring classic, Italian Countryside dinnerware. Made of hard-wearing ironstone for everyday use, the dinnerware also exudes enough panache to serve brunch or dinner for a more formal gathering. Fine ribbing accentuates the plate borders, as well as the sides of the sugar bowl, creamer, and teacup, while a scrolling, bas-relief garland decoratively bands rims and edges. Glossy and handsome, Italian Countryside makes a fine gift, especially in this all-inclusive 45-piece set.

The eight place settings in the set include one of each of the following: an 11-1/8-inch dinner plate, 8-5/8-inch salad plate, rimmed 9-3/8-inch soup plate, 8-ounce teacup, and 6-1/2-inch saucer. Matching the place settings are four accessories: a 12-inch round platter, perfect for cakes, hors d'oeuvres, a roast chicken, and more; a round serving bowl for vegetables or potatoes; a sugar bowl with a handsome domed lid and oval filial; and a creamer with a gracefully pronounced spout. The sides of the sugar and creamer are fluted as well as ribbed. Conveniently safe for the microwave, dishwasher, freezer, and oven warming at low temperatures, Italian Countryside is exceptionally worry-free. As with most fine dinnerware, sudden temperature changes should be avoided to prevent breakage. --Ann Bieri

  • Perfection!
    This transaction was sheer perfection from ordering to unpacking this incredibly beautiful set of dishes! I have never ordred anything as special as a set of dishes on line before, but the price was so good, I had to take a chance! The experience was so positive, I went ahead and ordered a second set, product and service on second set was excellent as well.
    Thanks Amazon! I hate shopping in department stores, this is the way to go for me from now on!

  • The best!
    This dinnerware set is elegant and casual at the same time. It is durable and will compliment many different decorating styles. The packaging was excellent. I received my set in perfect condition. There were no chips or missing pieces. The price is just right too. You can't go wrong purchasing this set. ...more info
  • Elegant, versatile and useful!
    I am so pleased with my purchase of this dinnerware! It is such a tasteful and elegant pattern that can be used for special occasions as well as everyday. It's not as heavy as stoneware which is nice when doing dishes, but it is fired to be tough enough to withstand, oven, dishwasher, and family use! It's great!! We are thoroughly enjoying it....more info
  • Countryside Pleaser
    Mikasa Italian Countryside 45-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 8
    I had been looking at this set for some time and was pleased to see the great price online. The set is even better than I expected. The dinner plates are a little larger then usual, the weight is good and the off white color does make you think of Italian pottery. I have already added berry bowls and the other style soup bowls that are large enough to be used as serving dishes. I am totally pleased with the set and enjoy using it everyday....more info
  • Perfect set for entertaining!!!!
    I love this set! Absolutely beautiful! Just wish it didn't cost so much because I need to buy another whole set to have enough for the whole family at the holidays.......more info
  • Quality control is TERRIBLE
    I was extremely disappointed that BOTH the 45-piece sets I purchased were defective. There are black speckles, brown spots, even a green spot in the glaze. This is on nearly every single piece. I have contacted Mikasa by their 800 number and was told they were aware of the problem and would send me good sets, but so far nothing has been done. This is creamware and it should be creamy white with no dirty looking spots on it. I love the pattern, the size of the plates, everything but the quality. They really need to address this problem at the factory, and not sell seconds as top quality china!...more info
  • Love the Mikasa Italian Countryside!
    This set of dinnerware arrived promptly and at a great price. I had been pricing around and this was by far the best price! All contents were in perfect condition when they arrived! I will certainly be looking for pieces to add to the set!...more info
  • love it
    I have been eying this set for a while when macys was selling for 199 +tax on supposely 400$ retail price...but then again..whoever pay retail?
    finally I check it up at the store and it was beautiful and not too heavy and not too light and also no metal chrome on the last set had those metal chrome and microwave hates it and heats up the plates....
    Those were fancy but cannot use microware is trouble for re-heating food.
    I checked amazon and it's selling for $167 and no tax no shipping!...can't let this deal I bought it last week.
    it arrives through UPS today and I can tell you it's a huge huge box and is heavy.... opened it right the way and all pieces are good! no broken plates and no broken cups.
    I am happy.
    $167 for 45 piece of mikasa...
    now I am going to look for some other pieces to complete this set....more info
  • Beautiful Dinnerware!! Broken pieces :(
    I LOVE this pattern! It is very simple and elegant. I fell in love with Lenox Butler's Pantry, but couldn't find it in a complete set, and the Italian Countryside came in a close second, so I ordered it. I'm very pleased with the quality. There are a few minor flaws in the glaze, but nothing I can't overlook.
    The only downside was that upon arrival, three pieces were totally shattered. Amazon sent a replacement set, I traded out the three broken pieces, and returned the rest at no cost (although a little inconvenience) to me. I also found several pieces in the replacement set were broken, so there is obviously an issue with packaging and/or shipping.
    Overall, I am very pleased with my new dinnerware! Beautiful!...more info
  • None of it broken
    Because so many have complained of broken dishes, I'd like to report mine arrived completely intact.

    I like the set, although the dinner plates are quite large, as is the fashion now....more info
