Italian Restaurants

Italian cuisine is well known for its bold flavors and abundant use of vegetables, pastas and meats. Wine is a big staple of Italian cuisine, of course, and it's not uncommon for Italian restaurants (especially those in America) to have thousands of different bottles maturing in their wine cellars and on their wine racks. Italian restaurants are likely to offer a variety of delicious pizza pies and fresh toppings, as well as noodles like spaghetti, ziti, fettuccine, lasagna, gnocchi, macaroni, orzo, ravioli and rigatoni. When noodles are combined with bountiful sauces, vegetables and meats, what results are popular dishes like carbonara, linguine with clam sauce, chicken cacciatore, spaghetti with meatballs and much, much more.

Some common Italian cuisine meats include capicola, mortadella, pancetta, prosciutto, salami and sausage. Italian restaurants can offer these meats alongside cheeses and breads to create a slew of Italian appetizers and lighter main courses. Cheese options are aplenty when it comes to Italian food, and on just about any Italian restaurant menu you can find provolone, ricotta, asiago, mascarpone, Gorgonzola, mozzarella and Parmigiano-Reggiano, to name just a few. Are you hungry yet?

No mention of Italian cuisine would be complete without talking about the wines. Italy is a country that's seemingly filled with vineyards that produce arguably some of the finest wines in the world. Popular white wines include Asti, Frascati and pinot grigio, and it's also common to see Chianti, Barolo and other red wines listed in the menus of Italian restaurants.
