Italian Food Menu

A full menu is composed of a “delicious starter, Side Dish, cake, fruit and yummy cheese.” No one is capable of such a feat on any given day. Most meals are of two classes, a “first” (pasta or rice) and / or a “second” (meat or fish) and a “contour “(contour) together.

Never in the same plate

Meals are usually closed with fresh fruit, cheese and coffee often.


Cappuccino is only served for breakfast, never at the end of a meal. If you are not able to resist the urge to ruin a good meal with milk, a “cafe ‘ macchiato “coffee with a drop of milk is good.

Drink milk

Drink milk for lunch or dinner is just unheard of, kills the taste of everything you eat and the relationship with the waiter.


Drinks are acceptable during a meal wine, mineral water, beer, and, just for kids, soft drinks.

No cheese on seafood

Spray or rub cheese with fish or seafood. The strong taste of cheese would kill ‘ taste of seafood. Try at your own risk, most of the restaurants will disclaim all responsibility for the results.


Most of the best Italian dishes start with a “fried”. And, “usually with finely chopped onions, carrots and celery and fried in a little olive oil.
