Italian restaurant decisions someone should have been fired for
As a professional eater, I happily declare that authentic Italian food tastes like a dream. Deeply flavorful, subtle, and complexly satiating, the dishes bring together traditional cooking techniques, classic preparations, seasonal produce, and top-quality ingredients — all of which result in warming culinary experiences that stay with you long after the meals have ended. On the flip side, the popularity of Italian cuisine has created a saturated market in which authenticity and quality have taken a dive.
If you are indeed seeking to experience the divine nature of good Italian eating, I strongly recommend steering clear of some widely available yet not always satisfying "Italian" menu items. Who decided these were a good idea? You're fired! (Only sort of kidding.)
