Eating is not only calming down the rumbling stomach, but in Italy food is synonymous of conviviality, of being together, drinking a glass of wine and accept a slice of salami or a piece of cheese, it means being able to enjoy the time in good company.

Italian cuisine has ancient origins and has spread around the world with
products and dishes of its culinary tradition: pizza, spaghetti, ravioli, lasagna, Parmiggiano Reggiano parmesan cheese, prosciutto ham, ice cream (IT: gelato), espresso and more. The most requested and imitated food.

Flavors, wine and laughter: at the table you have to laugh. Eat with gusto!
The Italian culture of food is about living the kitchen every day, how to join good food and ancient traditions to a greater awareness of the use of food.

digestible and in most cases light and healthy. Because of these properties is the basis of recommended diets by physicians (Meditterranean Diet), for the prevention of many diseases.
