The latest TripAdvisor market research, which polled 7,665 people across Europe (including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain), has seen Italian food crowned as most popular choice of cuisine.

Foods such as pasta, pizza and dolce desserts have been voted as the preferred cuisine among Europeans, including even the French – 40% of respondents from France said they preferred this type of Mediterranean fare, compared with 38% who chose their own traditional dishes and 27% who voted for Thai food.

Spaniards were found to be the most enamoured of cuisine from Italia at 62%, followed by Germans (55%) and Britons (52%). Interestingly, only 48% of Italians voted their cuisine above others.

Meanwhile, French cuisine, once highly esteemed, has slipped down the European list of favoured foods, with only 16% of the surveyants naming it top.

The TripAdvisor survey findings are backed up by a global poll of 27,000 people conducted earlier this year by, which also saw Italian fare emerge as most favoured cuisine.
