Italy equals pizza and pasta, right? Wrong. Yes, if you go to Rome you definitely must eat carbonara and if you go to Naples you have to try Pizza.
But there is way more than that! In the north you have meatier dishes such as cottolleta alla Milanese
(breaded veal cutlet).
In Florence you have bistecca alla Fiorentina, a hefty steak that will have carnivores begging for more. Risotto is another dish not to miss.
In the south fish dishes are king, and do not overlook the amazing Sicilian food!
And, OK, you are forgiven if you have more than one dessert per day. After all, in the birthplace of gelato, tiramisu, and cannoli, who wouldn’t?
