After queuing for more than half an hour in front of a well-known trattoria we were finally accommodated and had a sumptuous Neapolitan lunch. A meal which involved the constant hurrying to and fro of red-shirted waiters, shouting god knows what incomprehensible words to god knows whom and an out-of-the-blue appearance of an unlikely singer which c...

In Italy, coffee is just as essential, if not even more important than water. As Eataly so cleverly puts it, in Italy, your day centers around the coffee you drink, not the meals you eat.

As a former – and long-time – resident of the British Isles, I like reading Irish and English newspapers. During the first, 2020 Covid-19 lockdown I forked out for two subscriptions, one for Dublin’s Irish Times and one for London’s Daily Telegraph: both of them remain among my cherished, early morning, first-coffee-of-the-day readings. Just about...

The historic cafés of Italy aren’t just places for drinking coffee; having retained the atmosphere and traditions of times gone by, they represent the memory and identity of those times and, therefore, of a part of Italian history. Not that the coffee and treats they offer should be overlooked. They are just as popular for their identity as they ar...

Cappuccino is the Italian beverage for excellence, consisting of Espresso coffee and steamed milk. Italy is the largest consumer of Cappuccino in the world. This is traditionally eaten during the morning, at breakfast or sometimes in the afternoon, but never during meals. The Italians in the morning are divided between those who have breakfast with...

In every Italian city, the day's rhythm begins at the cafe. But in Trieste, a city on Italy's north-east coast, that rhythm comes with a twist.
