The Michelin Guide to Italy 2018 has been released and the big news is that there is a new three-Michelin-star restaurant for gastronomes to get excited about.
Chef Norbert Niederkofler's St Hubertus, which is located in San Cassiano in the shadow of the Dolomites, close to the border with Austria, joins the now nine-strong, three-star club, having held two Michelin stars since 2007.
There are also three new, two star restaurants on the list – Vun in Milan, Magnolia in Cesenatico, and La Siriola, also in San Cassiano – and 22 new stars. That means Italy now has a total of 356 stars, second only to France.
In other big news, both Carlo Cracco and Claudio Sadler have been demoted from two to one star at their eponymous restaurants in Milan.
