    Roast Dinner

    How would you translate the word/phrase 'roast dinner' into Italian, referring to the typical English Sunday roast with meat and veg?

    Thanks

    Re: Roast Dinner

    I'd just like to point out that Sunday dinner is usually served at midday (or early afternoon), and not in the evening, so I wouldn't translate it as "cena," but as "pranzo." Anyway, "dinner" refers to the main meal (which can be served at midday or in the evening). "Lunch" and "supper" refer to lighter meals (not a "roast dinner").

    Ciao.
    A parte il fatto che è servito a pranzo, come ha detto Curiosone (quindi ci sarebbe da apportare una correzione al dizionario WR), Roast dinner viene di solito tradotto semplicemente con "arrosto della domenica" o, nel caso di guide culinarie, più estesamente con "pranzo domenicale a base di carni arrosto e verdure".

    Agree with Curio and Connie: è da correggere il dizionario.
