The much-awaited World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2024 was announced last week, with 4 Italian restaurants on the list.

Spain topped the list with Disfrutar in Barcelona, with another 2 restaurants in the top 5. There was a huge showing from Asian restaurants, from Hong Kong to Tokyo and beyond.

Italy’s restaurants were scattered throughout with Uliassi in Sinigallia at no.50, Piazza Duomo in Alba at no.39, and Reale in Castel di Sangro showing at no.19. The top placed Italian restaurant was Lido 84 on the Gardone Riviera which came in at no.12.

This is what the World’s 50 Best Restaurants website had to say about the restaurants.

No.50 Uliassi

“The menu sees 10 new dishes added every year and features a mix of classic and innovative plates. Treats including the iconic foie gras wafer and kir royale set the tone for a feast that also includes seared cuttlefish and red shrimp with orange peel.”

No.39 Piazza Duomo


“Every bite blends the flair of French cuisine with Italian passion and Japanese precision, all enjoyed in a historical building with views of Alba’s stunning Piazza Risorgimento and its marvellous duomo.”

No.19 Reale

Castel di Sangro

“The restaurant places huge emphasis on the world of plants, with a cuisine style that looks to leave guests in awe. The minimalism on the plate belies the complexity of flavour at play.”

No.12 Lido 84

Gardone Riviera

“Lido 84 serves quintessentially Italian food – just not as you know it. In a charming old building on the shores of Lake Garda, diners enjoy Riccardo’s almost poetic ode to craftmanship and the highest-quality products.”
