There are therefore 378 Italian starred restaurants, a snapshot of the excellence of a sector that has overcome the pandemic and is looking to the future.
In the ranking of stars by region, Lombardy maintains its leadership thanks to 56 restaurants (three 3-star, five 2-star and 48 1-star) and 4 new starred restaurants. Campania, on the other hand, holds the annual record for new restaurants (7), taking second place with 48 restaurants (eight 2-star, forty 1-star). Consequently, Piedmont, with 1 new entry and 45 restaurants (one 3-star, four 2-star and forty 1-star), drops to the lowest step of the podium, while, with one new entry and 41 restaurants (one 3-star, five 2-star and 35 1-star), Tuscany climbs to fourth position ahead of Veneto, which, with a total of 36, is the second most awarded region in 2022, thanks to 5 new starred restaurants (one 3-star, four 2-star and 31 star) in the guide.
Among the provinces, Naples remains first with 30 starred restaurants, followed by Rome, in second position with 20, and then Bolzano, third with 19 restaurants. Milan slips to fifth position, with 16 starred restaurants.
“Our inspectors have observed a surprising energy, because despite all the difficulties that the restaurants have gone through and the challenges they are still facing, the level and quality standards are so high that they have the highest number of starred restaurants ever in Italy, and we can be very confident for the future considering the number of young starred chefs in this edition”, commented Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guide.
“It is a pleasure and an honor to host the protagonists of culinary excellence - said Silvano Brescianini, president of the Consortium of Franciacorta, which protects one of the most prestigious Italian sparkling wine territories, and which will host the presentation of the “Rossa” for the next three years, as a “destination partner” of the Michelin Group - on behalf of its 121 member wineries. Haute cuisine is the spearhead of an agri-food system that includes farmers, artisans, cooks, restaurateurs and a whole supply chain that enhances Italian cuisine around the world, in the glass and on the plate but not only. We producers are also called upon to improve, working on biodiversity and sustainability”. Sustainability that the Michelin Guide will enhance, from 2021, with the “Green Star”, which went this year to 17 restaurants (after 30 in 2021): Ps Ristorante - Cerreto Guidi Firenze, Mater Terrae - Roma, Lerchener’s in Runggen - San Loreno di Sebato, Antica Locanda Al Cervo - San Genesio, Agritur El Mas - Moena, Osteria Enoteca Gambrinus - San Polo di Piave, Venissa - Venezia, Sanbrite - Cortina d’Ampezzo, Le Trabe - Paestum, Singum - Salina, Aminta Resort - Genazzano, La Cru - Romagnano, La Preséf - Mantello, Casamatta - Manduria, Terra - Sarentino, 1908 - Stephan Zippl - Renon Soprabolzano, Fradis Minoris - Francesco Stara - Pula.
