The 100 best restaurants in Italy according to Yelp

Yelp‘s rating of the one hundred best places to eat in Italy has arrived, and the top ten spots belong to the cities of Naples, Rome and Florence. The San Francisco based company, which was founded in 2004, bases its ratings on the reviews of Yelpers, who contributed more than 95 million reviews this past year alone. With over 135 million visitors to its site each month, Yelp is a direct competitor of TripAdvisor. Using the reviews of Yelpers, both local and international, the site was able to collect the names and rankings of the top restaurants in the country.


In first place is Naple’s historical pizzeria L’Antica Pizzeria – Da Michele open since 1906 and is followed in second place by another Neapolitan eatery Sorbillo. The third place spot moved north to Mercato Centrale located in Florence – a restaurant specializing in the best of Tuscan cuisine.

The fourth place ranking went to Open Baladin in the country’s capital of Rome – an eatery also known for its vast variety of beers. The rest of the top ten can be found again in the beloved city of Florence. Surprisingly, Italy’s northern metropolis, Milan, did not place in the top ten.


The reviews of our users, who enjoy discovering new places and businesses, are the best way to find local gems,” declared Kristin Grancaric, head of Yelp in Italy. “Our list of Top 100 in fact confirms that quality restaurants aren’t the prerogative of exclusively luxury locales but are really within everyone’s means if you know where to go.”
