Italian chefs and grandmas rely on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Ingredients and dishes vary by region and cities, which make this prodigious land even much richer and probably one of the richest countries in the world. 

One of the main reasons why Italian food is loved internationally is because there are no surprises, when you go to an Italian restaurant you know what you are going to eat. It is true that we can find variety on the menu, such as a porchetta, some risotto ai funghi. But generally, those who go to an Italian restaurant want to try their pizza or pasta, dishes that are easily welcomed by everyone (regardless of age or nationality) thanks to the simplicity of their composition.
