The Best Restaurants in Italy

Restaurant in Italy

Restaurants in Italy but more especially Turin, Piedmont and le Marche are almost always excellent. In Turin, restaurants cater for the locals, not for tourists.

Many of the restaurants in Piedmont and Turin are among the best restaurants in Italy.

These restaurants are all those that my wife and I eat in regularly. They offer the finest of dining experiences, are virtually unknown to tourists and in few – if any - guide books.

You will find the prices to be more reasonable and the food better than in the normal tourist traps.

One last thing before we get to the restaurants. Have you ever thought about learning to cook like an Italian?

You have - then click to begin learning the fine art of Italian cooking.
