Food in Italian

Ciao! Tutto bene? Welcome to the Rocket Italian Lesson on a topic that’s sure to get your mouth watering - food! Today we’re going to learn some of the most common words for food in Italian.

It’s important to know some basic vocabulary for food when traveling in Italy. You’ll find it handy when going out to eat or when shopping for food in a market. Talk about what you like, ‘Mi piace...’, what you don’t like ‘Non mi piace...’, or perhaps you have a food allergy you need to tell your waiter about, ‘Sono allergico/a a...’.

Let’s tuck in to this lesson!
