That's me.... using a spoon just feels clumsy. I'm better at eating Chinese with chopsticks than I am with a spoon and Italian.

I've only ever seen it used in American style Italian restaurants. My best friend's father was an Italian immigrant.... I ate various types of spaghetti and linguine there many times and never saw anyone use a spoon except to get the last of the sauce after the pasta was all gone. I twirl a few strands against the plate.... seems just as effective to me, and far less complicated.
