Italian Restaurants That Rank Among the Best

Michellin star rating

Connoisseurs of good food know very well what it means to visit a restaurant accredited with Michellin stars.

The hallmark of fine dining and restaurants is reflected in the Michellin star rating.

These stars make it very easy for us to recognize the best in the trade today. The Michellin Guide’s star ratings are to food what Oscars are to movies. There’s not one restaurant that would risk losing the star ratings, as it can have significant impact on their business. Since the early 1900 Michellin, which is originally a tire company, has been reviewing restaurants. Today, it is the gold standard in fine dining.

In this post, I’ve used Michellin stars as guide to make a list of some famous restaurants in Italy.


Osteria Francescana

In a very short time it has earned three Michelin stars. If that is not enough, it has also been ranked as the best restaurant in Italy. This non-descript restaurant in Modena is serviced by Massimo Bottura, the wonder chef and culinary genius. People from the UK, Singapore, Chicago and Australia throng this restaurant that is rated higher than the best American restaurants.
