Italian Food Sayings

When you are traveling, it’s important to stay fueled. If you are traveling in a foreign country, that makes knowing how to inquire about food rather important. Eating out is also frequently a fun part of your experience, so it’s helpful to get a handful of food-related sayings under your belt. Knowing how to order food at a restaurant, or asking for assistance in a grocery store, is a great place to begin. Here are a few key phrases:

  • I’ll have pizza please. = Prenderò la pizza per favore.
  • I am hungry! = Ho fame!
  • I’m ready to order. = Sono pronto per ordinare.

And if you find yourself at the grocery store, these will come in handy:

  • Fruit = Frutta
  • Vegetables = Verdure
  • Meat = Carne
  • Milk = Latte
  • Bread = Pane
  • Water = Acqua

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.

I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!

I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
