Massimo Bottura triumphs. 50 Top Italy, a completely free online project by LSDM

On Monday, December 2nd 2019, at the Teatro Eliseo in Rome, the final awards ceremony for the  Best Italian Restaurants 2020 according to 50 Top Italy was held.  It is a free online guide dedicated to the highest standards of the Italian restaurant sector.  It is a project by LSDM (an annual gourmet cooking congress held since 2008 in Paestum) and is curated by its creators, Barbara Guerra and Albert Sapere, in collaboration with the journalist Luciano Pignataro.

The Italian classification is a follow-up to the international ranking which was presented in October.

Those awarded during the ceremony included the top three contestants of the Best Italian Restaurants Worldwide 2019, the international section of the guide, which is curated by Guido Barendson.  He was able to witness the success of his restaurant Passerini in Paris, directed by chef Giovanni Passerini. The second and third positions went to Don Alfonso 1890 Toronto in Canada, e Heinz Beck Restaurant Tokyo in Japan.

 

The Italian 50 TOP ITALY guide is innovative because it divides the Italian restaurant sector into four categories:  Over 120 euros, Up to 120 euros, Trattoria/Osteria and Low Cost.

The top spots of these four categories went to: Osteria Francescana, in Modena, with chef Massimo Bottura; L’Argine a Vencò, in Dolegna del Collio (GO), led by Antonia Klugmann; Antica Osteria del Mirasole, in San Giovanni in Persiceto (BO), by Franco Cimini; and Panificio Bonci, in Rome, by Gabriele Bonci.

In second and third place for the category Over 120 euros were Uliassi, in Senigallia (AN), by chef Mauro Uliassi, and the St. Hubertus restaurant in San Cassiano (BZ), by Norbert Niederkofler.  In the Up to 120 euros ranking, second place went to Lido 84, in Gardone Riviera (BS), by Riccardo Camanini, and third to 28 Posti, in Milan, by Marco Ambrosino.  Instead for the Trattoria/Osteria category, second place was awarded to Trippa in Milan, by Diego Rossi, and third to Roscioli Salumeria con Cucina, in Rome, which is owned by brothers Alessandro and Pierluigi Roscioli.  Finally, in the Low Cost classification, second place went to Anikò, in Senigallia (AN), which is directed by Moreno Cedroni, and third to Generi Alimentari Da Panino, in Modena, by Giuseppe Palmieri.

 

“What comes out of this – affirm the three curators – is a valid and authentic picture of the entire Italian restaurant sector.  It is a sector which, despite various difficulties, enjoys continued success.  This is primarily due to the fact that we have the fortune to live in a country where every single territory is the custodian of a unique and precious food or raw material.  It is no coincidence, in fact, that almost all of the regions of Italy are present in the guide, from the North to the South of the peninsula.   The rest is made up of the work, the passion, the competence and the flair of the women and men who participated in this contest.  The division of the guide into categories represents our desire to create a project from the point of view of the reader.”

 

There are a total of 200 restaurants reviewed by the guide, 50 for each category in 50 Top Italy.  A panel of judges composed of 130 inspectors visited the restaurants anonymously, gave their review autonomously and, obviously, paid the bill.  The parameters used for judging are revolutionary.  They include a significant mark given to the service and the welcome which are fundamental elements for a restaurant that treats its guests with care.

 

Finally, an array of Special Awards were conferred to important figures in the Italian and International enogastronomy.  Among the most significant were:
