I am definitely in the "I love cibo Italiano" camp.
It would seem logical that in a place by the sea, the specialty would be seafood. Our food experience here in Positano has been simply "delicious". From the tomato, mozzarella & basil puff breads picked up at the local Italian bakery accompanied by morning espresso .... to one of the best meals I have ever had, enjoyed at Ristorante Max. The angel hair pasta with lobster was truly 'squisito'. TezzaEd tried a Tiramisu that he said equaled mine - maybe even better than mine. "Mmmmm, really?" I suggested. I think he adjusted his opinion back to it being equal to mine by the end of the serve !! Haha !
Now, I appreciate that food is an experience that can be more than just about taste buds. It is emotional & may be influenced by our current state of mind, stress or relaxation factors. It may be cerebral and involve a process of analysing organic, locality and diversity. It can be physical that you are so hungry your tummy is aching and your dessert tummy is always empty. (One of DC's personal life theories). Simply, it may just be that the look, smell and taste are great.
One of the people we spent a few days with here (guest at the wedding) was not into food - she ate because she needed to. I confess the concept of not being into food is a foreign concept to me - just as she did not get my passion for food. Allora !
Do you like Italian food or not?
