Viaggiatore Gourmet

Recommended Posts

For those who love Italy and the great, authentic Italian food, check out Viaggiatore Gourmet at: http://www.altissimoceto.it/. Though mostly in Italian, it gives readers a virtual tableside seat at most of Northern Italy's great restaurants and quite a few elsewhere, together with complete menus, wonderful photograhy and periodic video presentations that will introduce you to owners, chefs and the preparation of meals. Be sure to go to the archive to find the restaurants you know (and investigate those your read about) and then keep track from there. The site is updated with new reports (and reports on wines) several times each week.

There is juts one problem with this website: I have yet to find one single negative or really critical review...

Nice as the website with all the pictures is, it seems more like a sponsored guidebook to me (and the guys obviously never dine anonymously - Especially the sicilian "correspondent" is horribly pompous, judging from some of the pictures on his blog, where he resides on his table with huge notepads etc).

All true. Would never make decisions on where to eat in Italy based upon the Viaggiatorre portraits. However, what an archive for menus and pictures! And in fairness, some of the places surveyed look like they might add to the core inventory of target restaurants for folks like us.
