"Great ingredients" Italy Restaurant Tip by acemj

Italy Restaurants: 272 reviews and 262 photos


Don't get me wrong, I always liked Italian food, but prior to coming to Italy, I would not have put it on my list of top cuisines of the world. Wow, was I wrong. I think the reason that Italian food is so incredible is that the ingredients are always homemade and fresh.

One day, I'll return and visit the South and sample some of that region's cuisine, but the variety in the North is enough to keep you satisfied for a lifetime. The rustic simple cooking in Rome is very different from the more artistic, French-influenced cooking of Tuscany. Venetian cuisine introduces the sea into the food with satisfying results. The bottom line is that Italian cuisine is much more than pizza and pasta and offers something for everyone.
