However varied and exciting your culinary travels tend to be, it is always nice to come back home. Italian food is so much a part of the traditional Maltese kitchen that it can also claim a major share in the Maltese way of life.
In the generality of Mediterranean cuisine and in the philosophical attitude to food presentation and intake in general.
No one needs telling that Italian cooking is among the richest and most varied anywhere, with dishes perfect for every occasion, from the quick late night snack to the sumptuous four-course meal. Italian cuisine has evolved extensively over the centuries.
Although the country known as Italy today had not officially formed until the 19th century, the cuisine can claim roots going back as far as 4th century BC.
Through various influences throughout the centuries, including neighbouring regions, conquerors, high-profile chefs, political upheavals as well as the discovery of the New World, a concrete cuisine has developed into what is known today as one of the premiere cuisines in the world.
And it is highly represented in Malta where Italian restaurants by far outnumber the rest. From the tiny trattoria and rustic bottega to the fashionable glittering restaurant, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to Italian cuisine in Malta.
Treating yourself to a fantastic Italian meal in Malta means going out and enjoying a variety of traditional Italian foods in places where quality and simplicity are the flavour of the day. It is also where, alternatively, you can sit, relax and enjoy a bottle of red or white wine.
When it comes to style, the Italians have it made. And, thanks to the vast array of Italian restaurants available on the island, so do you.
