We were raised on the Mediterranean Diet, one of the healthiest ways  of eating in the world: pasta, bread, fruit and vegetables are our  daily choice. We prefer to eat together because a shared table is an everyday celebration. We do it with pleasure because our food is Good for You and Good for the Planet. That’s why eating well in a Barilla Restaurant comes naturally. Because we prepare the same recipes that Italians eat every day, 7 days a week
