Eating & Drinking In Italy

The most complete Italian-language menu translator available, plus great restaurant picks for Italy’s major cities and towns!

It isn’t the chicken you thought you ordered. It’s a plate of cold brains. Nor is it the delectable slices of beef braised in red wine; those are veal kidneys. These are the pitfalls of ordering off a menu in a foreign country. To prevent just such accidents, we give you Andy Herbach’s "Eating & Drinking in Italy." This guide offers the most complete Italian-language menu translator available, plus great restaurant picks for Italy’s major cities and towns! Menus written in a foreign language are confusing and filled with slang and idioms. Uccelli scappatti are skewered sausages grilled with sage, but the word means “escaped birds.” Stinco is braised veal or pork shank. Nothing can make a trip more enjoyable and rewarding than being able to order a great meal without having an anxiety attack. The new 7th edition of Eating & Drinking in Italy includes:
• A great (and down-to-earth) restaurant guide
• A comprehensive Italian-menu translator
• Advice on restaurant etiquette
• A short pronunciation guide
• Opinions on everything food-related, from what to eat to where to get it…
