The Birra Moretti Best Authentic Italian Restaurant Awards 2011
For 150 years Birra Moretti has been synonymous with authenticity and quality for Italians. So naturally, Birra Moretti seeks to endorse those chefs across the globe who best advertise the values of authentic "Italianness" first of all the quality of the raw materials and the know-how, but also the warmth of true hospitality, and the pleasure of fine eating in good company.
It's here that the partnership with Restaurant magazine, creator and organiser of The World's 50 Best Restaurants programme, and the idea of The Best Authentic Italian Restaurant came into being not simply as an award for the best Italian cuisine abroad but something different and, in our opinion, more important.
The Best Authentic Italian Restaurant Award is an acknowledgment of those who, in every continent, have best demonstrated the ability to offer the essence of the Italian art of eating; where diners can enjoy fine Italian food and good company with whom to share it. It is a simple pleasure that has always been an indispensable part of Italian culture, a precious moment which Italians export to many countries around the world.
