Crostini are some really tasty Italian appetizers, made of small slices of toasted bread and different kind of toppings. The ones we've tried in Montepulciano only had some olive oil and some really spicy tomato sauce.
Italian gelato is famous all around the world. And even though people know it simply as the Italian ice cream, the texture and taste si completely different. And that's because the normal ice cream has a lot more fat (it is usually made with cream, while gelato is made with milk instead of cream). Gelato has a more intense flavour, a milky texture and a dens consistency. It is probably the best dessert you can have in Italy! Except tiramisu of course :D
