Things We Love about Italy and Carlsbad: The essence of dining. In Italy, dining is a fine art. One that is slow, well timed and purely relaxing and entertaining. A traditional dining experience for us was between two and three hours. It began with an appetizer and bottle of wine and sparking water, then entrees, coffee and dessert, great conversation and fun people watching outside on the city streets. Each evening, we would lose ourselves in the handmade pasta and rich tiramisu. It was an indulgence that was rich in food and pleasurable in the company and the comfort. Italians become absorbed in the food and the atmosphere. Family and tradition are so critical to happiness in Italy and food it at it’s center.
