Ristorante Alla Borsa: "When to eat?" Top 5 Page for this destination Valeggio sul Mincio Restaurant Tip by matcrazy1

Valeggio sul Mincio Restaurants: 55 reviews and 54 photos

by matcrazy1

A lunch and a supper (breakfast surely, too) is served at strictly determined time bracket of a day especially in more developed and richer in culinary traditions countries.

In Italy, restaurants are open twice during the day: in the early afternoon for a lunch (say. 12.00 am - 2.00 pm) and again in the evening for a supper (say, 7.00 pm - 9.30 pm). Many (most?) restaurants have bars which stay open much longer, always with a break though (say, 9.00 am - 3.30 am and again 6.00 pm - 11.30 pm).

So, typical Italian eating time is the following:
7.00 (or 8.00) am - 9.00 (10.00) am for breakfast
12.00 am (1.00 am) - 2.00 pm (3.00 pm) for lunch
7.00 pm (7.30 pm) - 9.30 pm (10.00 pm) for supper

Most Italian restaurants are closed at least at one day (different) of a week, never on Saturday or Sunday though as these days are the busiest. Sometimes a restaurant is additionally closed in the evening hours at another day. Italians love days off :-), who doesn't?

Generally, more to the South ---> longer lunch break, especially in summer but less days off for restaurant staff.
