When we think of Italian cuisine, we tend to imagine one singular cuisine representing the entire country. In reality, Italian cuisine is made up of 20 diverse regional cuisines, each with its own unique ingredients and culinary philosophy. We at Beaches look at Italy from a regional point of view. Our Italian restaurants feature the gastronomy of Veneto, Emiglia-Romagna, Toscana, Lazio, Campania, and Puglia, so you can enjoy a tour of Italy without ever leaving the Caribbean.
