V is for Vegetarian In Italy

When thinking of Italy I never think of a vegetarian diet.
I enjoy the meat sauce, vitello (veal) and pollo too much.
There must be 30+ ways Italians prepare port products but those are not my favorite.

When I lived in Sorrento I passed a vegetarian restaurant every day.   It may have been the ONLY V restaurant in town.

When I returned last year the restaurant had moved to a larger location and now included a grocery story.
You can eat in or take food ‘away’. Take away is not a common practice in Italy.  I have seen it in pizza restaurants and small stands that sell croquetta  I  have also been told that you don’t take the remaining food home from a restaurant.
Perhaps service dishes family style helps prevent this.

Yle with Yltour.com in Lecce, Italy, was my first encounter with an Italian Vegetarian.  Her  travel company even offers planned  vacation breaks for you to learn to cook vegetarian while visiting    See my post at:  http://tinyurl.com/b4jl2rr
