Don't worry, I didn't forget to document the many culinary delights we encountered in Italy. We attempted to stay away from any place that catered too much to tourists, as those establishments tend to have less delicious fare (just like anywhere else). With the help of personal recommendations and preferred guide books, we had many memorable meals.

Pasta alla carbonara in Rome

Spaghetti con ragĂș alla bolognese...pretty much my favorite food ever. Italy didn't disappoint.

How our plates looked after every meal

Pizza in Florence. The globs of mozzarella don't lie - Italy does pizza right.

The set-up of our "splurge" meal in Florence at Osteria di Giovanni

Chickpea salad, a complimentary starter at Osteria di Giovanni

Bistecca alla Fiorentina...the ultimate porterhouse steak

Braised rabbit with greens...Yeah, that's right, bunny is delicious!

Indulgent panna cotta

"Cicchetti" in Venice, a sampler of sorts, featuring seafood appetizers - octopus salad, prawns, crab salad, and sardines

A new favorite found both in Croatia and Italy - squid or cuttlefish ink sauce over pasta. It tastes salty and buttery and is absolutely divine.

In Milan, ossobuco with risotto alla milanese

Grilled tomino cheese (which I have been unable to find at home) with zucchini and eggplant
