It’s not just what you eat, it’s who you eat it with. In the same survey participants were asked to give their top 3 people to eat with. Results found that Italians preferred most of all to eat with their romantic partner (51%) followed by parents (42%) and friends (37%).

Less desirable dining companions aregrandparents (10%).Only 4% of Italians reported feeling happy eating alone.

A questionnaire probably wasn't needed to know that pizza bringshappiness. But now that we "officially" know where Italians stand, what about theUnited States?
