Let’s face it, we travel to Italy not only to see the Roman Forum, the Vatican and the Colosseum. We go because we want to eat authentic Italian food: pasta, pizza, chianti and birra! Just like Julia Roberts’ character in Eat, Pray, Love did.
We’ve heard many times that people often get disappointed with the food in Italy, not enough flavor, not a lot of red sauce, small servings, extremely al dente pasta. And that dear readers, is all true. If you are expecting eating the same dishes you get at Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill and Carrabas, you are in for a big surprise.
