Ordered this Ser Jacopo bulldog (my 1st bulldog) over the weekend. It was in Italy on Monday and it was in Arkansas on Wednesday. I was impressed with that shipping time! The pipe arrived thoroughly protected and gift wrapped. Shipping was $11. I registered/made an account with the site and received a 10% discount on what I felt was already a good price. I’d rate this purchase experience 5/5 stars. I’d definitely purchase from AlPascia again. 2200BC68-E3E3-4B5C-8A61-CEAADBEF1069.jpeg

I’ve purchased one pipe from them too, their service is nice.

Tabaccheria Corti also has great service, I’ve bought two pipes from them, free shipping and also arrived in a few days.

I’ve gotten to know Luca there too a little over the years, so I only look for pipes now from them.

Nice pipe, enjoy it! :)

I was very shocked by the shipping times the first time too! I was in disbelief how quickly they got it from Italy to my front door.

Love the way they wrap and package each item, attention to detail is a really nice touch too.

Tabaccheria Corti has equally good service and a great selection of hard to find Castello shapes (and smaller sizes we don't get here via US vendors)

I purchased a SER JACOPO from them and got it here in Florida in 5 days.
I am very impressed with their shipping. I purchased another SJ from them in January.
I believe I bought it Sat night and it was on my porch on Wednesday. That’s pretty great for $11 shipping.
I feel like their pricing on Ser Jacopo pipes is really good and for some reason pipes tend to stick around on their site for a while.

Bought a beautiful Radice rind at their shop in Milan last year. What a wonderful place! Great welcome, attentive and so many beautiful pipes! And got to practice my Italian and got a reference for a wonderful bakery in Lucca! Highly recommended!
