Hospitality towards anyone who visits one's house is an ancient culture of many countries. For instance, there were times when people always ensured that their guests never left without their stomachs full of home-cooked meals. Recently, travel and fashion influencer, Lara Severino shared her Italian grandmother's next-level hospitality to someone who visited her house. With over 664K views, the video stole many hearts on the internet.

"Everyone needs an Italian nonna," Severino mentioned in the caption and her 9-second video explained why. Her grandma, whom she referred to as "nonna," was preparing coffee in the kitchen for someone and one would think that it was for a relative or a friend who had visited. Turns out, it was for a repair guy. "My nonna is so Italian that she has to feed everyone including the man who has come to fix her TV," the text overlay read. The sweet grandma walked up to the TV repair guy to serve him the coffee herself. Though this may be a simple expression of hospitality, the fact that many households in this modern world lack this aspect makes it more special.

Severino's adorable nonna received lots of love online and people from other such hospitable cultures could relate to her sweet gesture. "It is my dream to be adopted by an Italian nonna," said @d10mondgurl57. "My Indian mum does this. She actually cooks a whole meal for them. Rice and chicken curry etc. The workers' faces always lit up whenever they came to work at our home," pointed out @aqy76w. "My grandma who’s Irish does the same thing. She tried to give the man who was fixing her electricity bananas, and coffee cake. She made him a sandwich," added @thehistoricalharlot.

In a world where people are too busy to even greet their neighbors, grandmas like these are embodiments of sweetness and warmth. Speaking about her 82-year-old nonna who is now the internet's favorite, Severino told Newsweek, "Having an Italian nonna is the best thing ever if you love food like me. Nothing comes close to her cooking and the fact that she is 82 and still cooks every meal for herself every day is so incredible to me." She added, "To put it simply, nonnas find the most joy when they are cooking for those they love."

True to Severino's words, a grandmother's homecooked meal is a refreshment to the soul because in the never-ending rat race that we're running right now, even one homecooked meal per day is a blessing for many. A few days later, Severino posted another wholesome gesture by her nonna that would make us yearn for our grandmother's warmth and love. The text overlay read, "I called my nonna at 5 pm and told her I'm coming over for dinner and this what she makes." The sweet grandma managed to prepare a "fiore de zucca lasagna" at short notice for her granddaughter proving once again that she was the queen of congeniality.
