It's no surprise that “homesick” sounds better in Italian since ― duh ― so does basically every other concept humanity has invented. Say it with us, and use your hands in the wonderful Italian fashion: avere nostalgia di casa! Nor is it surprising that so many people feel a longing for sun-splashed Italy, where every meal's an exquisite feast, every sentence's a soaring aria and every moment's proof of the good life.
What may surprise you, however, is how much of that longing for the bona fide Italian experience, from calcio to cacio e pepe, can be satisfied right here in the New World ― specifically, New York. (And no, we don't just mean Little Italy.) You just have to keep your eyes open for the hidden gems and the little delights in the everyday ― the ones that will give you a true taste of Italy, stateside. We partnered with Sanpellegrino® Sparkling Fruit Beverages and its new Delightways app to find how and where you can live the authentic Italian life ... without ever leaving Manhattan.
