Italian professor Sara Platto is so happy that she can enjoy Italy's authentic cuisine at restaurants again in Wuhan, Central China's Hubei province, after a months-long suspension of dine-in services.

Platto and her son, Matteo, recently went to Jia Kitchen, an Italian restaurant at a five-star hotel in Wuhan and chose their favorite food, which made them feel like they were in their hometown.

Platto, an associate professor at Jianghan University's School of Life Sciences, chose to stay in Wuhan at the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, even though she could have returned to Italy.

During the past months, she insisted on sharing China's anti-epidemic practices and useful experiences with her Italian family and friends to help them fight against the novel coronavirus.

"We have lived here for many years, so it's our home," she said. "I had to spend more than an hour every single day to calm my mother down. I told her I was quite safe here."

"Thanks for your support to Wuhan and people in Wuhan," said a restaurant staff member. "We also feel quite honored that we have faced the epidemic together."
