i think italians have a relationship with their food, its more than just food to them, look at how they cook and enjoy their food. i work part time at an italian resturant (trattoria rustica, norwich) and i must admit my italian boss loves food and enjoys seeing people enjoy food.

Food is highly valued as a commodity in Italy, but it's probably the way we eat rather than what we eat that the Italians find repulsive. A Meal in Italy is an event; a social gathering with a large selection of home-cooked treats. A meal here is throwing food down our throats, and the fast-food industry really embodies this approach. It's not surprising then that the Italians aren't too keen on being taken out for dinner rather than enjoying some quality time with their hosts.

I love Italian food. If I lived in Italy and ate that sort of food all the time I too, would probably turn my nose up at being taken to an English resturant. (apart from the local chippy)
