Tips

  • Italians have an inherent sense of style and elegance so dress appropriately for the occasion.
  • Avoid calling anyone between 2pm and 4pm as this is their ‘pisolino’ or nap time.
  • Avoid saying ‘ciao’ or ‘hello’ when greeting strangers; use ‘buongiorno’ instead which means ‘good day’.
  • It is considered impolite to use first names so use the family name accompanied by ‘Signore’ or ‘Signora’.
  • You can never go wrong in selecting fish, pork, beef and chicken. Ask for the meats to be served alongside pastas.
  • Try some caffe macchiato or espresso after your meal. Italians prefer cappuccino only for breakfast.
  • Male relatives or friends often embrace and cheek kiss rather than handshake as is custom in Italy.
  • When eating with the locals, say ‘buon appetito’ which means ‘good appetite’ before you start a meal.
