Italian Food

Food in Italy is a true expression of every Region and its culture.
Every traditional regional product is made by natural ingredients that you can find only in that region (sometimes only in one town!). Every food comes with its flavors from the past.
Regional Food & Wine:

Italian Wines


These products are part of the historical, cultural and social heritage of every town and of the whole region.
It’s exciting to know that there are places where you can still eat foods prepared in the same way for centuries. In this way you can enjoy the same food of your ancestors and you can feel the same taste.
For the pleasure of your “Italian Side” we added the typical products for every Italian Region. (list constantly updated)

That’s why Italy, with its Regions, is trying to protect the authenticity of typical food, preserving the product names and their uniqueness from any imitations and abuses.
Typical regional products today are identified and recognized by Italy and European Community as
Denominazione di Origine Protetta (DOP) or Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and Indicazione Geografica Protetta (IGP) Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).
This designation serves on the other hand as a protection for consumers all over the world. It provides them with the guarantee that the information about the origin and quality of the products corresponds to the truth.

To read the lists of typical foods for every region, click the region on the map or the name list below.
(remember that same food can be protected in different regions: it means that all those regions were recognized to have the same product)

    I was in Cucegilio Italy last August. I bought 2 bottles of wine from there. I am in hopes of finding this wine again. I live in the USA and so far cannot find it. Is there anyway that I can buy it through your site and have it shipped. Grazi
