I’ve been really lucky to visit Italy a few times over the past couple of years & I was recently asked by a friend, ‘Out of the places you’ve been… where had the best pizza?’
This question made me realise that every place was completely different & had its own food culture. Everywhere I have been has had amazing food, but which city you should visit, could really depend on which types of Italian food you love the most!
I have to start by saying, the food in Rome is ridiculous. I soon realised I’d never tasted proper tomatoes or artichokes until I ate here. Most restaurants use the freshest ingredients and offer tasty/simple Italian food. The food here is rustic & always felt homemade. It might not photograph well, but it tastes amazing!
The foods Rome do best:
Bruschetta – Any pasta dishes – Pizza
Milan has some of the best food I have ever eaten. The food here is much more refined than Rome & offers a wider range of choices.
Things to try in Milan
Panzerotto – Risotto – Anything stuffed with ricotta cheese – Sfogliatella
Me & Venice had a love hate relationship. But one thing I can’t deny was the seafood was some of the best I have tasted!
Things to try
Any seafood dish – Gelato
