What Italian Food Could You Eat Forever?

So… keeping up with the Italian theme, some of the most popular dishes in the world originate from Italy. But which of them would you never get tired of eating?

I think mine would be spaghetti with lobster (or prawns) and obviously swimming in sauce (I’m a sauce freak). What I realised whilst in Italy was that picking where you eat is very important. Because honestly, the same dish can taste completely different. Some restaurants won’t season the dish very much, whereas others will make all the flavours come alive and it’s almost like you’re living out the scene from Disney’s ‘Ratatouille’!

This was one of the lobster spaghetti dishes I consumed and this one was amazing, but not as flavoursome as the one I had a couple days after somewhere else. But the restaurant I had the below photo in was magnificent, and I would go there for the vibe and atmosphere alone! The pizza there was better I think, but that’s me being incredibly nit-picky!

The pizza’s in Italy were splendid but I think if I could only have one type of Italian cuisine, it would be a pasta dish as there are endless foods you can serve within the dish. And parmesan on top of the pasta tastes like you’ve fulfilled your foodie fantasy… for now!

Which Italian dish would you eat forever? If you’ve visited Italy, which of the dishes made there were your favourite? Are you a cheese fan? If so Italy is for you! The mozzarella balls are phenomenal! Do you have any Italian restaurants you’d recommend? Comment below!

  1. I am second generation Italian-American and by far pasta with my mamaโ€™s homemade sauce I could eat everyday. She called her sauce suego and we would sneak dips of bread in it throughout the day as it slow cooked on the stove! Mangia!

    1. Ratatouille!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ and the rat in the guys chef hat was unbelievable but a childโ€™s fantasy๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I even tried to do it with someoneโ€™s hair! I can assure you IT DOESNโ€™T WORK๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. I saw the film when it first came out. It was great. I was once a chef and have worked a lot in hospitals after that so I was naturally a bit perplexed by a rat preparing food in a kitchen. Lol

      2. Same! Ahh it’s such a legendary film. Hahaha it is a very puzzling film, but what Disney film isn’t? The most confusing part is how he managed to get the guy to cook just by yanking the guys hair here and there! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Let’s not even speak about the hygiene aspect behind the film and a rat cooking in the kitchen, then after kids watch it, it’s then their fantasy to have a rat cooking for them haha!

  2. Looks delicious! I never had the two together before. If I could eat any Italian dish forever it would be spaghetti. It’s affordable and also versatile. You can have it as an appetizer, side dish or main meal.

    1. Itโ€™s incredible! You must try it. I agree spaghetti is very versatile, there are so many things you can do with pasta in a dish. Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s such a classic!
      Great minds think alike!๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

  3. Splendid choice, Antonia! The pasta with lobster looks achingly magnificent, and your vivid descriptions make the stomach growl.

    I can think of fates far worse than dining as you did rest of my life.

    Still. my choice would be ravioli with garlic. halved cherry tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Drizzle with a little olive oil – magnifico!

    1. Ohh I’ve never heard of that but I’m guessing the dish involves scallops? I’ve never had scallops either but I must this year! They look delicious!

  4. Great post, Antonia! I love Italian food, being part Italian myself. There are just too many to list as my favorites. I really want to try a Trapizzino loaded with red wine tomato sauce and fillings. Have you had one?

    1. Oh really? That’s amazing! Do you make homemade Italian dishes then? Italian food is delicious, Trapizzino looks mouthwateringly good, I’ve never had one. But I’d for sure have all the fillings and tomato sauce as you said, minus the red wine as unfortunately I don’t drink.
      I’m now thinking about a Trapizzino non-stop!

    1. I haven’t had salami in ages but you’re right it is amazing! There isn’t a difference between hard salami and salami? Is the hard one just unsliced? I’d love to know!

  5. Hands down, Italian brick roasted pizza. The ingredients are just so much fresher than anything we have in America. Itโ€™s not processed. Loved the lobster on pasta. Looked to die for. I miss Italy. I think it may be time for another vacation there.

  6. I’m not a great fan of Italian food, but pizza is good sometimes. We go to a restaurant called Olive Garden here, I always get cheese ravioli with meat sauce, and it’s always really good. Plus, they have a great mixed salad with Italian dressing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. There is a lot of different Italian foods and I’ve probably only had a tiny taste into the many different options they have, so I wish if I could say if I’m a die hard Italian food fan or not, but I agree, pizza is always great! Especially in Italy. Ahhh I love Italian dressing but I think I’ve only ever had it from a bottle in England ๐Ÿ˜‚!

    1. I couldn’t agree more. There’s so much you could serve with pasta, and pasta compliments a wide variety of ingredients! Especially seasoned well, is there anything more satisfying?

      1. Who knows abut the secret sauce, my mother is quite the deceiver……So all my life I might have been thinking this was her “special” thing and actually came out of a supermarket can. Iยดll let myself be deceived, itยดs damn good those spaghettis.
        You too have a great day.
