Forgive me for another ignorant question, but is it expected that each person order an antipasto as well as a first and second course at restaurants? That would seem like too much food. Unless portions are typically tiny — are they? (I am coming from the US where portions are large by European standards, but even correcting for remembered portions in France, three courses seems a bit much.) What about a couple sharing the antipasto, then ordering first and second courses and sharing those as well? Is sharing frowned upon in Italian restaurants? Thanks once again for the pointers.
