Fine dining and Italy go together. It has the world’s best food places. In praise, CNN wrote:

“Italian food has captivated taste buds around the globe for centuries, with its zesty tomato sauces, those clever things they do with wheat flour and desserts that are basically vehicles for cream. It’s all so simple. Get some noodles, get some olive oil, get some garlic, maybe a tomato or a slice of bacon. Bam, you have a party on a plate. And it is all so easy to cook and eat,”

Younderbound is captivated by the colorful Italian foods. The website writes:

“The secret of the cuisine is not in a sophisticated preparation process, it is more in the freshness of the products.”


This food is awesome whether you eat it at an expensive restaurant or roadside food stall. The Top Tens opines:

“The only problem is that real authentic food with real authentic ingredients can only be found in Mexico. What you get outside the country is a poor rendering of what Mexicans really eat at home,”

“The French are famous for the importance they attach to food — it’s not uncommon in France to take two-hour lunch breaks for three-course meals.”

The French foods, macarons, escargot, and baguettes are specially popular. And baguettes are fresh with no preservatives or additives. It has only four ingredients: salt, wheat flour, water and yeast.


It is a food lovers haven with its world famous eating outlets. AWOL states:

“The country of Spain came away as the real winner, with the largest share of restaurants in the top 50. Seven of the [world’s] 50 best restaurants are located in Spain, dotted all over the country from Girona to San Sebastian to Axpe. This proves that the home of tapas, paella and churros really is the king of culinary countries.”

Further, My adventures Across The World warns:

“This is a place where people still take their time to eat — though be prepared, meal times are really late. People enjoy having business meetings while savoring some of the best fish caught in the Bay of Biscay; and they accompany their meals with a glass of good wine.”
