Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the Michelin Guides said: “This year, the 367 addresses distinguished by our teams of inspectors make a vibrant tribute to the richness and regional diversity of Italian gastronomy, which is a gastronomy of products, terroirs and authenticity.

"It is also always fascinating to note how much the chefs and artisans at the head of these restaurants are living and evolving the Italian culinary scene, oscillating between respect for tradition and gourmet innovation.”
