Facebook Fans’ Favorite Italian Food

Food Network Facebook fans "like" Fettuccini Alfredo

We asked our Facebook fans for their favorite Italian dish today and the response was overwhelming — over 1,000 fans commented! But most impressive wasn’t the number of posts, it was the list of mouthwatering ideas; scrolling through is like reading the ultimate Italian menu.

Many fans couldn’t decide on a favorite dish and commented that they loved anything Italian, while others got creative with “dish” and let us know their Italian crush — Giada De Laurentiis, Sophia Lauren, Antonio Sabato Jr., James Gandolfini, Jon Bon Jovi (is he Italian?), Al Pacino and someone named Sergio at a neighborhood pizzeria.

Other highlights from the post include Italian dishes both classic and unexpected:


Lasagna Bolognese from Food Network Magazine

Giada’s Sausage and Peppers

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Eggplant Parmesan

Fettuccine Alfredo



Giada's Pizza With Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

Chicken Parmesan

Penne With Vodka Sauce

Stuffed Shells

Osso Buco


Tiramisu from Food Network Magazine


Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Pasta e Fagioli


Chicken Piccata

Zuppa di Pesce

One fan commented that it would be easier to narrow down the Italian foods she didn’t love than to pick one favorite. Check out the post on Facebook and add the Italian dish you’re craving. Still hungry for even more Italian? Check out Food Network Magazine’s all Italian issue.
