Italy

I’ve had a fascination with Italy for as long as I can remember – I truly think I was Italian in another life.  You’ll find that this is the section with the most recommendations for restaurants, hotels and experiences because it’s the European country I’ve visited and loved the most.  Salute!

  1. I’m sure you already know this, given the savvy traveler and foodie you are – but Obika has a stand in NYC. My mom and I went when we were there this past Fall. Not sure how long it’s been there, but just read your entry on it, and figured if (for some unknown reason) you don’t know about it, you should :).

    • I’ve absolutely been there! It actually opened not long after my first trip to Italy in 2007, and I was so excited. I tend to hit it more on the way to the office more than anything for a cappuccino and a focaccia nutella. 🙂 The one in Rome is much more of a restaurant/wine bar. Love. Love. Love. Thanks for commenting, Tara!
