Low carb Italian food

Both my partner and I love Italian food so the choice of restaurant for a dinner out was never difficult.

Since I started the low carb diet I have stayed away from Italian places. For obvious reasons, I thought. But yesterday I was tired and boyfriend wanted pizza (surprise) so I gave in for the our Italian around the corner. And it turns out there are quite a few dishes to choose from. If you are dying for a pizza (and hardcore LCHF), have the topping and leave the bread. But no need to go to such extremes. In the salad section you should be able to find low carb meals but among the pasta dishes there is something for us! Real Italians don't serve that much pasta anyway but you can ask to substitute some of the pasta for vegetables. Sauces are often creamy and rich - perfect for LCHF. Soups are often low in carb as well but stay away from fried food like calamari and meatballs.

Enjoy your low carb Italian food :)
