3 Italian Foods That Are Perfect for Picky Eaters, Bronx, New York

Whether they’re five or 50 years old, if there’s a picky eater in your family, you know how difficult it can be deciding what to eat for lunch and dinner. Thankfully, if you’re in the mood for Italian food, there are many options available for all palates. Here are some popular choices you can easily find at Italian restaurants.

Italian Foods Even Picky Eaters Will Love

1. Pizza

With variations ranging from light and crisp to doughy and saucy, there’s a pizza for everyone. You can get a classic Neapolitan with just tomatoes, mozzarella, and a drizzling of olive oil, or something more substantial with delicious toppings, such as buffalo chicken. Depending on the restaurant, you can mix and match, or even omit certain toppings from a specialty pizza.

2. Caprese Salad

This classic Italian dish is also on the simpler side, relying on only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, so it's perfect for a plain palete.

3. Pasta

Like pizza, there's no shortage of pasta dishes when it comes to Italian food. They can be made with a variety of proteins, such as chicken, sausage, or seafood, or they can be omitted entirely for vegetarians. If someone prefers creamier dishes, they can pick pasta items with alfredo or bolognese sauces. For those who prefer something with more bite, they can order a traditional marinara or tomato sauce.
