toptable diners reveal their top 50 Italian restaurants in the UK Local neighbourhood restaurants trump the list

toptable reveals today their diners’ top 50 Italian restaurants across the UK for 2011. The list demonstrates the versatility and popularity of Italian cuisine with the inclusion of restaurants covering the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.

“Italian cuisine is one of toptable diners’ favourite cuisines and one that they are familiar and comfortable with”, comments Lucy Taylor, Head of Restaurant Relations.  “The list includes such culinary stars such as Angela Harnett’s Murano and Theo Randell but it also features many popular local neighbourhood restaurants proving that wherever you are in the UK, you are not far from a good Italian restaurant.”

Owner, Leo Pierotti and Manager, Andrea Graasso of the ever popular family run Italian restaurant Piccolo Mondo in Glasgow which tops the list commented, “We are obviously delighted to be included in the list.  Italian cuisine is not only delicious but it is the ultimate comfort food.  When this is coupled with a warm Italian welcome and great value you have a very popular formula.”

The rankings are based on over half a million reviews submitted by toptable diners for more than 3000 restaurants across the UK between October 2010 and November 2011.  Based on toptable diners’ feedback the following 50 Italian restaurants received the highest ratings.
