The Michelin guide for Italy 2014 has been announced with the country now boasting eight three-starred venues after Restaurant Reale by chef Niko Romito gained its third star.
There are three new two-starred restaurants in Italy with Villa Feltrineli by chef Stefano Baiocco, the Devero restaurant by chef Enrico Bartolini and Locanda Serafino by chef Vincenzo Candiano all rising from one to two stars.
The Michelin guide for Italy will also feature a whopping 29-new restaurants to gain a star. Italy now has 8 three-starred restaurants, 40 two-starred restaurants and 281 one-star restaurants in the guide.
Speaking at the announcement a visibly emotional Romito said: "It's all about courage. In 2009 when we got the second star I was offered many different restaurants, we could go wherever we wanted, but we had the courage not to leave our little town in the middle of Italy."
Three stars in the guide signifies 'exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey', two means 'excellent cooking, worth a detour' and one star means 'a very good restaurant in its category'.
