EATING IN ITALY

In Italy you can enjoy food at its best, but with VITOR you will learn how to eat as an Italian.

First of all, we invite you to take your time! Italian food tastes really great and so worthy of wasting a few hours; furthermore, when eating out, courses are many and service is slow.

Each of the different geographical regions within Italy has a different style of cuisine, based on what is readily available in that area: northern Italian cuisine uses more rice than pasta, and risotto and polenta dishes are most popular; central Italy favours olive oils and cheese, beef and wild boar, as well as stuffed pasta; southern Italian cuisine frequently uses tomato sauces and olive oil, and is famous for the best pizza; coastal regions are often known for their seafood dishes.

Bread is not an eat-alone food: use it as the main tool to "fare la scarpetta", i.d. clean up your plate after a meal or to pick up whatever your fork can't do!

Pour olio d'oliva (olive oil) and aceto (vinegar, even balsamic), of which there are plenty of sorts, as sole condiments for salads: Italians like to enjoy the exceptional flavour of what they're eating, and not mask it with other toppings!

Sip caffè espresso (black coffee) at breakfast and after eating, and even as a break in the afternoon. And taste great gelato artigianale (home-made ice cream) in any sort of flavor, from dark chocolate to figs!

Finally, please remember: before starting to eat, Italians always wish a good meal by saying “Buon appetito!”

Message from the CEO
Dear all,
in these very difficult days for all of us, for Italy and the whole world, we hope that you, your families and your loved ones are well and are making the most of your time.
It feels like the entire world right now is on edge. It seems like the world has paralyzed, our lives have suddenly changed, it’s so difficult to adapt to a new reality, some people we know are leaving us forever.
There is also a lot of fear about what will happen. No one can make predictions.
But there is a beginning and an end to everything.
There are thousands of doctors, researchers and scientists who are working on a solution.
We are reacting with strength, determination and cohesion without forgetting our deep humanity, joy and creativity. Human beings have already overcome difficult times like this, so we must look ahead and keep on living. In this period let’s try to do things we have never done, to rediscover our families, our loved ones and friendships. Let’s use this period to improve ourselves internally, to think about the gift of our lives, to love, to embrace, to smile, to tell each other things that we would never have said.
To our friends who like travelling and exploring….
It's very difficult to be world travelers stuck at home. We must stop and get through this exceptional chapter safely, and we miss travelling. But please, keep on dreaming, with the same positivity, passion, curiosity you had before. On our side, we are here at work with the same passion and professionalism, with the same desire to continue to share emotions, stories, projects with our friends. We are working for a tomorrow made of new services and new ideas, to make your travels even more pleasant, more comfortable and more intense. It is a new challenge, which we never expected to face but, with your help, we will start again, stronger than before and always close to you.
And soon the time will come when once again we will swim together in our beautiful lakes and seas, walk together in our cities, cook together in our kitchens, eat together at our trattorias, sip together a glass of wine at our cellars.
Until then, I want to thank you for your support and understanding. Take care of yourself, we can't wait to give you a warm welcome back to our fantastic country.
Grazie e ciao,


Marcello Cordovani
Founder and CEO
