Exploring the Italian cuisines is an irresistible thing for food lovers. It’s fresh, flavourful, and delightful aroma is dolce vita on the plate. But, for finding the best food in a country with such fabulous regional gastronomy, the best advice would be to forget about restaurants that serve “ingenious” fare, and just stick to the local, time-honoured specialties. The traditional Italian dishes are strongly rooted in their culture, and recipes are often carried down among generations and are cherished for their authentic roots.As a passionate food lover, I have listed down
Five delicious food you cannot miss to have if you are in Italy:
- Pizza Napoletana
Basically, a flatbread pizza topped with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, sprinkled with extra virgin olive oil. Making of this pizza is truly an art and is made with just three to four ingredients. The essence of the Italian cooking sums up with fresh and high-quality ingredients which all together create an authentic pizza.
One of the world’s oldest pasta recipes, lasagna is a traditional Italian delight made by alternating layers of pasta sheets, meat, cheese, vegetables and different varieties of sauces, such as the ragù, béchamel or tomato sauce. The dish is definitely a perfect appetite for everyone.

The history of Italian gelato comes from the lanes of Renaissance period, but who exactly created this creamy frozen dessert no one knows. Real gelato is made daily by the artisan, and unlike regular ice cream, it has less fat, less air, and much more natural flavouring. Italy has around 37,000 gelaterias throughout, but best are said to be found in Rome, Florence, and Bologna. A visit to Italy is incomplete without having a gelato.
Ribollita is traditionally known as a poor man’s food. In Italian, it means Cucina Povera. Ribollita was discovered by servants who collected unfinished food, such as bread and vegetables from their masters before boiling these components in water and then to make a meal. Affluent and generous, Ribollita is regarded as one of Tuscany’s most important dishes.
Torrone is a classical nougat which is found in Italy, Spain, and France. The word torrone is originated from Latin and comes from “torrere” which means to toast. It is creamy and sticky. It is made of ingredients like honey, egg whites, toasted nuts and citrus zest. Thick slabs can be commonly found in cafes and candy stores throughout Italy.
