Travel to Italy with Food Allergies.

Puri | Feb 28, 2011 01:29 PM

Hi, We are travelling to Italy in March for a week. We will be in Rome and may go to Venice for a night. My 5 yr old daughter has severe peanut/tree-nut, egg & soy protien allergy. (Soy Lechtin and Soy oil are fine for her) I have made a letter in Italian listing her allergies requesting that her food be free of contamination too. I have memorised the italian words for what all she is allergic too.
Any other advice from anyone with food allergies ? How aware are the restaurants about food allergies ? Also is egg-free pasta available at the restaurants ? And is Lupin dough flour mixed in for pizza/pasta dough ? She might be allergic to Lupin too as peanut & lupin are similar. Any recommendations of any stores/restaurants where we can eat. ? Are all the packaged food products labelled for ingredients ?
I am very worried about the trip.
