1. Don’t ask for 'fettuccine Alfredo'

This dish really doesn’t exist in Italy, or at least not under that name. "Fettuccine Alfredo" reportedly got its name from a restaurant in Rome, where the dish originates from. But what got lost in translation as the American tourists who visited the restaurant in the 1950s brought the dish back to the U.S., was that the original "Alfredo" doesn't include cream, just butter and Parmesan cheese.
