I cannot even begin to describe how delicious the food has been here. Not only are the unique dishes amazing but even simple dishes like spaghetti and marinara sauce are truly unique and mouthwatering. It is noticeable how small the dishes are here compared to home but that is because the food is that much more satisfying. One of the dishes that I love is pear ravioli; i strongly recommend trying these if you are ever given the chance...it sounds interesting but it truly is to die for. Below is another kind of ravioli, walnut which had really rich sauce and it was quite the perfect combo. 

The Cappuccino's are beautifully designed and a lot stronger than they are at home. They go perfect with all the homemade pastries to and are really cheap, a lot cheaper than Dunks or Starbucks. 

Below is just a simple spaghetti dish with garlic sauce that honestly was amazing. I even saved some so I could eat it again for dinner.

It's REALLY hard to find food here that is not satisfying and it's even been fun learning how to cook more having our own apartment. Shopping is another interesting concept because everything's in Italian so it's sometimes a guessing game to what you're buying like we had to find out Aglio is garlic, so we could make some garlic bread and trying to make sure we were getting the right kind of milk took about 20 minutes...it is worth it though and it's so helpful to learning the language! Hope I didn't make you too hungry talking about the amazing meals here!
