Many fans couldn't decide on a favorite dish and commented that they loved anything Italian, while others got creative with "dish" and let us know their Italian crush -- Giada De Laurentiis, Sophia Lauren, Antonio Sabato Jr., James Gandolfini, Jon Bon Jovi (is he Italian?), Al Pacino and someone named Sergio at a neighborhood pizzeria.
