Thanksgiving is almost upon us, and many Americans abroad are looking forward to a taste of home during the festive season.

If you're spending your first festive season in Italy, have no fear: with a little effort it's perfectly possible to create your own authentic Thanksgiving at home.

But perhaps the idea of sourcing for the all right ingredients for a home-cooked dinner makes you feel exhausted; or maybe you plan to celebrate with a large group.

So what are the options if you prefer to dine out? If you're in a major Italian city with a sizeable American expat population, you may be in luck.
