Taste Top 12 Italian

This is a list of three halves! First you'll find old school Italian restaurants, then a new wave of more rustic representatives, big on pasta, and finally, the pick of the cutting edge pizza joints (check out our Top 10 Pizzas, too), whose chef/proprietors have no Italian origin at all, just a passion for dough an toppings.

Note: Cicchetti is here representing all the Stefano family's restaurants (San Carlo, Bottega and Fumo) that are one of the city's huge success stories, while on a smaller scale the original Salvi's gets the honour on behalf of all Maurizio Cecco's other establishments (The Cucina, Rosticceria, Pizzeria Napoletana).
