Interface & Usability:
Appropriately enough, ItalianFriendFinder
is designed with the red, white and green flag theme throughout.
It is extremely easy to navigate with all the main features displayed
across the top of the screen. This website boasts many of the same
Features as the other friendfinder sites, except they are geared
towards Italians. For example you can view the site in English or
Italian. The chat rooms are also Italian dedicated and are as follows:
- Northern Italy Room
- Southern Italy Room
- Italian Language Room
- Italian Practice Room
- Seaside Room
- Club House
- Thirties Room
Searching through member profiles is easy, fast and well laid out,
but to view members large detailed photos you will have to be a
paying member as the basic membership account only allows you to
view small photos. You'll also have to sign up if you wish to read
Over all this is a well designed, professionally laid out website.
It loads fast and has a lot of features for members to communicate.

What we liked about the site:
|You're spoilt for choice as
regards features and things to do. You can communicate with people
in multiple ways and for multiple reasons.
You're not just limited to dating, you can make a circle of friends
and organize events for your group if you so wish.
Although there are some restrictions when using the basic member
account, you can get access to most advanced features by using the
points system and you can even claim prizes if you accumulate enough
points such as a free months membership at silver or gold level.
Easy to navigate, easy on the eye. Text is a decent size and so
are members photos.
Quick 2 page sign up process.
You can get access to more advanced features by building up your
credit points. This is easily done by fully completing your profile
etc. You can also win prizes such as a full membership in the monthly
Handy downloadable instant messenger with webcam/video/audio features.
There's also an online instant messenger but it has no video features,
Free chatrooms and instant messenger chat.
What we didn't like about the site:
communicate with members via email or view profiles in the free
account, some features restricted. But then again, most dating sites
are like this, they have to stay in business somehow.
You'll be searching for days unless you narrow your criteria down.
Fortunately ItalianFriendFinder provides excellent search features.
But most of the advanced search features are restricted for paying
members. Hey, you get what you pay for!
ItalianFriendFinder is an
excellent Italian Dating site. As its fairly new its numbers aren't
as big as some sites but the 78000 members that have joined so far,
are mostly Italian, there's 3000 people from Italy alone. If you
want to date an Italian and you cant find someone out of 78000 people
err :-/ You're in trouble.
This site has many features, is fast loading and well laid out.
The online members magazine is great with many articles and tips/advice
by members for other members. If it's Italian dating you want (and
the site can be viewed in the Italian language too) this site is
If you want to date outside the Italian race or get access to a
wider membership base, join Friendfinder instead as it was available
for a much longer period of time and hence Italians, pre-ItalianFriendFinder
have signed up with it, but FriendFinder is only available in English.
Friend Finder Customer Testimonials
||Dear ItalianFriendFinder, I just wanted to thank you
for your services. I have met the most wondeful man thanks to this
site. I love him very much and this has brought me alot of joy. I
didn't know what "true love" was untill this experience!
I got totally hooked on Italian culture when I lived there, and now
that I'm back Alberto really keeps me smiling! I'm so glad we lucked
into each other!
Dear ItalianFriendFinder, I was always cynical about personal ads
and I didn't have much faith in trusting fate, but after placing my
ad with your, and receiving a reply from someone who was also advertising
on your site, I have now met the man I have always been looking for.
We've already moved things onto a better stage and we have more to
look forward to. Thank you very much, Nicky Sommerville
My name is Megan, my partner's is Jon. A couple of months ago, Jon
and I both happened to meet in the Screen Room on your site. Jon admits
he had only gone there a couple of times but as for me, I was a frequent
visitor. I love to go into a room and talk to people. I have made
some wonderful friends there. Anyway, Jon and I started talking about
art. He had seen me talking with someone else and I had said I was
an art teacher. Well, Jon is a painter. We struck up a conversation
and the rest is well, more like a novella than a story. Since our
first chat, Jon has visited me in Ohio, and I am actually writing
this from Jon's hometown in California. We have since spent countless
hours together. If we hadn't met on ItalianFriendFinder, we may never
have ever gotten the chance to meet at all. We consider our meeting
to be one of the best things to have ever happened to us. And, who
knows? I am coming back to California in June, and we will be making
a stop in Vegas. And there are those cute little marriage chapels
there...Best thing is, Jon's and my story will continue, hopefully,
forever. --Megan Boy Propps (meganboy)
Hi, My name is Legal2 on ItalianFriendfinder, I am from Nevada. I
started searching for someone to be in my life - it took about 4-6
months and thanks To ItalianFriendfinder they sent me a profile that
has turned out to be so wonderful! He is from Canada and we started
Emailing back in November of 2001. We spoke on the telephone for the
first time on New Years night 2002 and it was a wonderful, exciting,
somewhat nervous time for both of us. We both decided we wanted to
meet so he flew to Nevada in March of 2002 and has been with me ever
since. We are so much in Love and so very happy. We are planning to
marry one day. But we both just want to say Thank You Friendfinder
for bringing us together, if it wasn't for you guys we would not have
found each other. I believe that everyone who are members of ItalianFriendfinder
can find the "special someone" to be in their life. Just
don't give up, continue to search and I am positive you will find
that person just as we have. Good Luck to you all, and a BIG THANK
YOU, Friendfinder, keep up the great job in helping people to find
that special person for their life...Sincerely...Legal2
