In Italy, 343 restaurants are marked with a red Michelin guide, of which 8 are awarded 3 stars. Coming in first place, France has 616 Michelin-starred restaurants.
The annual presentation of Guida Michelin Italia once again confirmed the gastronomic superiority of the northern regions over the southern ones. The same trend is also relevant for restaurants with three Michelin stars.
Interestingly, in 7 of the 8 best restaurants the chefs are men. We talk about the best restaurants in Italy, and also offer a comparison of their prices from CupoNation. Continue reading
What do you want a spree tourist? Right, eat! What to eat in Rome? Right, pizza! Skillful cooks turn a piece of dough with something up there into a true poem. Tender and elastic dough is infused for three days, pizza is baked in a wood oven. The rejection of this method of baking was once one of the conditions for Italy to be admitted to the European Union. Italy neglected this condition. But the taste of national dishes is not neglected here. On this occasion, I can only say one thing – Buon appetito! It is especially nice when in good weather you can take a table on the street or an open veranda (I do so). From morning to evening, no pizzeria in Rome, of course, works, most often open closer to lunch, or even to dinner. Want to learn how to make real Italian pizza? We recommend hosting a master class in a real Roman pizzeria with a guide with Vladislav Doro.

On the third day of our stay in Sicily, Mario and Antonella invited us to a pizzeria. I personally really looked forward to this evening, because I was eager to see the authentic institution, where the Sicilians themselves go, and try the local cuisine. And she, by the way, is very different from everything that we tried in other regions of Italy. In Sicily, seafood and garlic, which is present in almost all dishes, are especially honored, and pizza is no exception. So, our table was booked for eight in the evening – the very time when absolutely all the local population is having dinner, so almost no cars or even pedestrians came across our way. Outside, the Calvino pizzeria, founded in the distant 1946, looks very simple and doesn’t really bother visitors. But this is not necessary – from eight in the evening a line of those who have not booked a table in advance begins to accumulate here, which in itself already attracts random tourists.
