At some point in your life, you have heard someone say, “Mercury is in retrograde” and had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. Mercury goes retrograde a couple of times a year and this year one of those times is happening now, from February 17 until March 10. 

When this happens, be ready for things to change. But don’t worry because the foods you love can provide comfort during this time of need specific to your zodiac sign. The dining expert at OpenTable has created a list to reveal the best-suited cuisine to your horoscope!

Aries & Capricorn – Italian

Italian food

You just can’t get enough pasta! Pizza is your go-to meal choice! Your love for Italian food reveals your friends and family are probably at the centre of your life, after all, it’s not an Italian feast if the whole family isn’t dining with you.
