Apart from delicious Italian food, Italian restaurants are usually romantic too. When you imagine sitting in a charming and cozy restaurant with a violinist singing a song, what comes to your mind? The best food in the world is what you think! Italian food is romantic food and most Italian restaurants play up that romantic feel.
One of the places in Chicago that became one of the most romantic Italian restaurants is Italian Village. This restaurant is a staple in Windy City and a must visit if you are ever in the Midwest. It features three different restaurants. The top floor is romantic with a private dining booth and a mural-painted ceiling. You will feel as if you are dining under the stars in Venice. The restaurant upstairs is mostly Southern Italian cuisine.
The entry level restaurant features more modern cuisine and so does the décor. And the restaurant downstairs serves more traditional Northern Italian food. Whatever type of food you like, you can find it in Italian Village.
For a restaurant chain, Buca di Beppo is one of the most popular Italian restaurants in the United States. This big chain has the best Southern Italian cuisine around. Newcomers to Bucas, as is well known, were treated to a kitchen tour, where there was a special booth reserved for VIP guests. Anyone can book this booth and eat in the kitchen if you call ahead.
Each room has a theme and is decorated in the kind of flashy decor that adorns most of my relatives’ homes. However, Bucas is charming and brings back memories for anyone of Italian descent. The atmosphere at Bucas is loud, lively and fun and the service is usually very good.
You can get dishes like Fried Calamari, Bruschetta, Veal Parmesian, Ravioli, Spaghetti, Chicken Marsala and others. The list of entrees and entrees is extensive, but be sure to only order one or two as the portions are huge. You usually have plenty of Italian food to take home.
Every city has a popular Italian food restaurant. Some Italian companies are family owned and some are chains. Take a look and try different types of Italian cuisine and you will soon find your favorite.
Pizza is not considered Italian food. Pizza is an American invention. However, you can find food similar to pizza in many authentic Italian restaurants. Most Italian restaurants have their own way of making the sauce and will serve either Northern or Southern cuisine. Some Italian food restaurants will feature a bit of both to please all tastes.
Italian food is a way of life so be sure to enjoy it to the fullest. My wife is Italian and we are spoiled for delicious Italian cuisine in our family!
Enjoy and enjoy delicious Italian cuisine. It is one of the best in the world.
