Be a gastronomic adventurer in Durham's Italian restaurants
You'll find pizzas, carbonaras, bologneses and risottos at almost all of the Italian restaurants in Durham. However, if you're for looking dishes you don't normally try, you'll find more obscure culinary creations in several of the city's eateries. Perhaps you'd like to try a Milanesa, which is a breaded meat fillet, usually served with salad. Another lesser-known dish from Italy is Cacciatore, which is made with chicken or rabbit, tomatoes, onions and bell peppers. These authentic dishes are available at places such as Bistro Italiano on Claypath, where there's an unmistakable family feel to the dining experience. Other Italian restaurants in Durham that serve genuine fare include Oro Italian Restaurant on Farm Road and La Spada Ristorante on Front Street.
