Nothing can make a trip to Italy more enjoyable and rewarding than a great dining experience. This guide not only helps you find your way around a menu written in Italian, but also will help you find great places to eat in Italy. Even if you speak Italian fluently, we'll bet you a plate of 'stinco' that you'll still need this guide. There are always strange and unusual items on a menu. With this guide tucked inconspicuously in your pocket, you'll know where to dine in Italy and boldly go where you once feared to enter. This guide includes: A great (and down-to-earth) restaurant guide. The most comprehensive Italian menu reader available. Advice on restaurant etiquette. A short Italian pronunciation guide and opinions on everything from what to eat and where to order it.
