Dining in Italy
In Rome the best areas for dining in Rome are the Trastevere and the old Jewish quarter. Check out the carciofi alla romana (artichokes), puntarelle (chicory salad), buccatini alla amatriciana (pasta dish), abbacchio (lamb chops), cornetti (sweet pastry) and of course pizza.
In Pisa go into one of the neighborhoods and experience the local flavor of Tuscan cuisine. Milan has a lot of cafés and pizzerias offering simple and affordable food, thanks to the huge number of university students in the city. For fresh gelato in Milan, check out Officine de Gelato. Dining is the number one reason to come to Italy’s food capital, Bologna. In Bologna there is only one type of food suitable for eating, Italian. Wine is always served at meals, so don’t even think about ordering a soft drink. Taste the Piedmont wines in Turin. When eating out remember one important thing, take your time! In Italy meals can go for up to three hours. In Sicily try the cannoli alla ricotta, which you may have tasted before, but not like that in Catania.
