Spaghetti can be with Napolitano sauce and onions and capsicum in a sort of sweet sauce in one place, and be traditional spag bol in another. Pointing at a picture of fried crumbed fish may lead to you receiving grilled fish with a rich tomato sauce. A Hawaiian Pizza may come with not only ham and pineapple, but also peaches and glacier cherries.

Be as specific as possible when ordering and if there is a picture go for that – but just be aware that you have a 60% chance of getting not only the correct item but also the English interpretation of the food.
