Italian Restaurant

Near my house opened an Italian restaurant, Italian cuisine as it is? It is Italian food. I was so happy to find this – most Italian restaurants in the United States are interpretations of Italian cuisine with local ingredients. How authentic it is depends on specific restaurant. I lived in Italy for the last 12 years – some restaurants in the United States approach than others. If your local restaurant serves pasta with chicken in it, then it is not very authentic, but it is not a bad place to eat. Where I live in Italy things like tortellini in brodo, Tortelli di Zucca con burro e salvia, spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino and tagliatelle with rabbit are fairly common. We have lots of pork dishes and including things like zampone and sausage. Each region of Italy has its own specialties well.

    I live in Europe, where Italy est.Mon experience in the United States is that of a restaurant "Italian" can be anything from a place where the food is so good he would most restaurants in Italy to shame, to a place that is nothing more than a pizza takeaway.
