The Best Italian Fine Dining Experience

Just because Italians are known for the world renowned pizza and mouth-watering sandwiches does not mean that Italian cuisine is just all about that. The best Italian dining experience does not have to be confined in some pizzeria or paninoteca. Although those places are wonderful for discovering the true flavors of Italy in a more informal setting, Italian cuisine can also be enjoyed in more upscale ristorantes that provide an ideal atmosphere where family and friends can talk and bond over delicious, authentic Italian dishes. There are just a lot of dining experiences awaiting everyone, it only takes a keen eye to find a nice Italian restaurant and a discerning palette to judge whether the food was an original remake of a Mediterranean classic dish or an American version of what was once Italian.

Restaurants with Italian names or Italian ambience have sprouted in almost every city of the world. The Italian cuisine is becoming more and more popular with the huge crowd of diners and almost everyone wants to sample Italian fine dining. Although, you may receive the best service in some Italian sounding restaurant, remember that it is not just all about the experience of eating Italian style, but it should be about the food as well. If you are not eating authentic Italian dishes, even if your servers wear traditional costumes, your dining experience is not at all worth being called Italian fine dining. But the question is how do you know that you are eating authentic Italian food or not?

You have to keep in mind that Italian cuisine is all about balance. All their dishes are seasoned with restraint so that one ingredient does not overpower all the rest. Italian cuisine is all about preserving the natural flavors of every individual ingredient. They do not try to mask the flavors by using too much garlic powder like what most Americans are used to. A great way to know that you are eating authentic Italian food is to order a salad. If th dressing is too robust for the greens then it is probably not done traditionally as it is in Italy. Italians are also about using crisp ingredients and serving food as fresh as possible. Look at the bread served in your chose Italian restaurant. If they are already warm and possibly day old when they reach your table, chances are you may be dining in those American-Italian restaurants. Most authentic Italian restaurants will serve bread straight from the oven. You can really smell fragrant scent of newly cooked bread that is crusty in the outside, but puffy and light on the inside.
