Home restaurants are becoming more and more popular in Italy. Italians are opening the doors of their homes to share the recipes they learnt from their parents and grandparents. Visitors to Italy can now sample the tastiest and most authentic local dishes cooked by Italians in their own homes.
To help visitors to Italy find these home restaurants, MyItalianFriends has created network of home restaurants, and cooking schools located all over Italy.
Eating in a home restaurant or participating in a cooking class not only allows you try and learn Italian home cooking but most of all it allows you to experience the atmosphere in Italy at mealtimes. A time when people share food, a glass of wine, good conversation and, of course, have a good laugh.
MyItalianFriends is gathering together home restaurants managed by English-speaking Italians who are more than happy to cook traditional Italian food for you. The site not only hosts home restaurants located in many different areas of Italy – it also helps visitors to Italy locate professional cooking classes and wine tasting experiences.
