Italy would not be Exquisite, in English or in Italian, without the food and wine that make its cuisine so well respected and so delicious. While you are in Italy it will be the great pleasure of all of us at EIE to ensure you sample the bountiful culinary delights on offer. We have developed deep friendships with many restaurants big and small, as well as cantinas who will welcome you to their vineyards with full glasses of wine and frantoios where you can see extra virgin olive oil seeping from the press. If you are a foodie at heart, we will be delighted to introduce you to tiny osterias with the most authentic cooking, starred restaurants with chefs who are changing the definition of Italian cooking, and every sort of eating experience in between. Those who want to experience the best of funghi porcini, sample real Roman artichokes, or any other particular speciality will be carefully guided by us so as to ensure your visit comes at the time of year best suited to your palate.
