Some dozen Istrian restaurants have been included in the celebrated gourmet guide “Le guide de l’Espresso – I Ristoranti d’Italia”. The guide is just one of the publications published under the l’Espresso name by the international publishing house RCS Media Group. One of the largest publishing houses in Italy, RCS Media Group operates in daily newspapers, magazines and books, as well as in multimedia.
Although the guide primarily covers the eating establishments of Italy, it also includes several Istrian restaurants reviewed and rated by Italian food and wine experts. Printed in 110.000 copies, I Ristoranti d’Italia lists 3,000 restaurants selected from across the Apennine peninsula.
