How User-Friendly is The Website?Website 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 members profiles.

Over all this is a well designed, professionally laid out website. It loads fast and has a lot of features for members to communicate.

These Features Get A Thumbs Up :-)Pro's

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 competitions.

Handy downloadable instant messenger with webcam/video/audio features. There's also an online instant messenger but it has no video features, just text.

Free chatrooms and instant messenger chat.

These Features Get A Thumbs Down :-(Con's

What we didn't like about the site:

Can't fully 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!

Well, Overall What Did We Think of The Site?Overall Verdict:

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 for you.

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.

Hear what satidfied customers have to say!Italian 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! Sincerely, Cheryll
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
