Dining Out with Kids in Italy

Travel Tips

Even kids with finicky appetites will find things they like on most Italian menus if they know what to look for. This menu guide for fussy young palates can make mealtime easier during your family’s travels in Italy.

 

Antipasto

An antipasto platter comprises salami, ham, prosciutto, olives, vegetables and cheeses; order one for the family to share as an appetizer and the youngest ones are sure to find something they like.

 

Pasta

Listed as a separate course, pasta comes in servings to make more than a generous meal for a child. Spaghetti Bolognese is served with a meat sauce, or you can always order any pasta “al burro” — with butter only. Any pasta served “carbonara” will have a light sauce with bacon.

 

Polpetti

What kid doesn’t like meatballs? They are normally served in a tomato sauce.

 

Caprese Salad

Fresh, juicy tomatoes and slices of mild mozzarella cheese can be the perfect meal; kids can leave the basil leaves if they don’t like them and you can ask for it “senza balsamico” to skip the dressing.

 

Pizza

 A word dear to any kid’s tastebuds, pizza is always available, although not in every restaurant. Stop for pizza first so the younger kids have already eaten (they can just order dessert at the restaurant).

 

Calzone

 Pizza in a pocket, and less messy to eat.

 

Tiramisu

Popular all over Italy, this creamy dessert is wholesome as well as sweet.

 

Gelato

You can find it in shops and at street-side stands; it’s always good for an energy boost, especially in the summer.
