While it's nice to have anyone of the above mentioned dietary/food allergy translations cards while in Italy or when traveling anywhere, one should exercise due care and diligence when you are eating out just like you were at home. It is critical to make sure that not only the waiter/waitress understand that you have a dietary/food allergy to certain food items and products but to convey that urgency and understanding to whomever is preparing your meal in the kitchen.
