Contrary to popular belief, there is really no such thing as a national “Italian food”. Rather, what Italy offers is a variety of foods with distinct regional influences. Our travels through Italy have allowed us to sample foods from Piedmont to Puglia, and many points in between. Join us for a culinary journey through some of Italy’s most famous foods.
Each of these restaurants holds a special place in our hearts. Often, it’s more than just the food itself. It’s the richness of culture, the wonderful people behind the scenes, the way a spot makes us feel at home.

Our Favourite Foodie Resources
Maribel Tastes of Italy
We met one of our favourite Italian instagrammers “in the real” on our visit to Bologna. Maribel teaches pasta making and does great food tours in Bologna.
Lori and Angelo are a travel writer and photography team who have been “slow travelling” Italy for ten years. They are a wealth of information on food travel in Italy.
Eponymous magazines are always a good starting point for travellers, and this is no exception. Their food recommendations and commentary are well worth a look.
