When you are traveling, it’s important to stay fueled. If you are traveling in a foreign country, that makes knowing how to inquire about food rather important. Eating out is also frequently a fun part of your experience, so it’s helpful to get a handful of food-related sayings under your belt. Knowing how to order food at a restaurant, or asking for assistance in a grocery store, is a great place to begin. Here are a few key phrases:

  • I’ll have pizza please. = Prenderò la pizza per favore.
  • I am hungry! = Ho fame!
  • I’m ready to order. = Sono pronto per ordinare.

And if you find yourself at the grocery store, these will come in handy:

  • Fruit = Frutta
  • Vegetables = Verdure
  • Meat = Carne
  • Milk = Latte
  • Bread = Pane
  • Water = Acqua
