These 2 Italian Eateries in CA and OR Made the ‘Best in America’ List
Italian cuisine is one of the most sought after foods in America. Some of us are obsessed with pasta, even if we aren’t Italian by birth. Others of us are infatuated with pizza. Although some might say, “But pizza is one of America’s favorite foods,” remember that pizza originated with the Italians.
AMERICANS ARE OBSESSED WITH ALL THINGS ITALIAN
From the food, fashion, American-made movies and TV shows about Italian immigrants, to the fashion, luxury sports cars, opera, gelato, wine, and art, you have to admit, we are kind of OBSESSED with all things Italian. (I’m old enough to remember us being hypnotized with Season 2 of White Lotus. Americans flocked to that fancy coastal Italian resort in Sicily.)
