As an Italian food lover, I have always been fascinated by each dish’s rich history and culture. We love cookbooks, but we find that some of the best and most personal food writing is happening on food blogs.
Italian food has something for everyone: from the simplicity of a classic Margherita pizza to the complex flavors of a hearty lasagna, this is some of our favorite food!
After months of research and countless hours spent in the kitchen, I have compiled a list of the best Italian food blogs out there.
These blogs are not only informative and well-written, but they also offer a unique perspective on Italian cuisine.
Paola Maggiulli’s Italian roots are clear in their name and The Tiny Italian is a blog which is packed with Italian recipes, reviews, travel tips and more.
One thing we really like about it is that the blog is really well laid out and finding your way around to the perfect recipe is child’s play.
The Pasta Project
Jacqui was born in Britain but opted to emigrate to Italy and her passion for the Italian life and, in particular, pasta is reflected in her excellent blog.
She wants everyone to enjoy her journey to try every single type of pasta that has ever been invented, you’ll be amazed at how many pastas you haven’t tried, yet.
Memorie di Angelina
This is a blog with family roots in Italy and Frank Fariello is an Italian chef who shares his own recipes and those handed down over generations.
Everything on this blog feels authentically Italian and we really rate Frank’s vegan recipes which really stand out from the crowd.
The Italian Dish
Elaine brought a taste of Italy with her as her family moved to Michigan and she wants everyone to experience Italian cuisine in a living, evolving fashion.
The photography on this blog really stands out and it comes with some really handy tips and advice on cooking as an art form too.
She Loves Biscotti
Maria Vannelli is based in Montreal but She Loves Biscotti is based on the love of Italian food passed down by her mother.
She’s also a professional dietician and her blog provides a nicely balanced diet if you cook the recipes and follow the tips and advice that she offers for eating and preparing Italian food.
La Bella Vita Cucina
Ros has been writing about Italian food online since 2008 and this blog is absolutely packed with brilliant recipes, ideas and more.
We love the little stories she shares about her exploits with her husband on their travels and the information she offers about the origin of each recipe.
Ciao Chow Linda
Linda’s parents were born in Italy but she grew up in New York, so, she decided to spend a year in Italy herself and that’s where her passion for the food was ignited.
Her blog is a cross between a travelogue which explores Italy as a country and a high-end foodie blog with amazing recipes and it’s fantastic, if this blog were a book it would easily make our top Italian cookbooks list.
Marisa’s Italian Kitchen
Marisa hails from Italy but has moved to Canada and her obsession is the Italian dessert and if you love sweet stuff, you’re going to love her blog.
We could spend hours going through Marisa’s cakes which ought to appear in every authoritative Italian Cookbook.
Half Australian and half Japanese Emiko Davies flits through the world motivated by the idea that “Italian cuisine: it doesn’t really exist.”
This gives her permission to try a completely refreshing and unique take on everything Italian and the results are incredible.
Marcellina in Cucina
Marcellina started cooking Italian food under her parents’ watchful eyes as a child and her passion for it has only grown.
She draws not only on her own considerable experience making Italian food but also that of her Italian family and her blog brims with authenticity for it.
Italian food is comfort food and preparing it makes even the lowest spirit soar. It’s nice to be able to separate American from Italian because while we love American food, it can obscure some of the best Italian food too. These bloggers make it easy to escape to Italy in the kitchen and do it well.
