The Love Italian Life Awards are proud to announce that Vitantonio Lombardo Ristorante led by chef Vitantonio Lombardo himself has been awarded The Best Contemporary Restaurant in Basilicata 2019 Award.
Vitantonio Lombardo has won a final place in The Love Italian Life 2019 Awards in Dublin on November 19th which is an international ceremony celebrating the best contemporary Italian restaurants and their authentic chefs across Italy, UK & Ireland.
The nominated Michelin Star restaurants in Basilicata and the rest of Italy were selected by an independent panel of Italian food and beverage experts excelling in all key criteria including the quality of ingredients, recipe innovation, contemporary Italian cooking techniques, dish presentation and wine pairing selection.
The typical food of Basilicata is based on a few local products blended with traditional dishes. Durum wheat homemade pasta is an important ingredient along with minuich and tria. Just like other regions, pepperoncino is a key element and known as diavolicchio (little devil) locally. Lamb dishes such as cazmarr and cutturiddi are very popular while lucanica is a famous sausage made with lean pork meat and goes down well with the locals. A vegetable dish highly reccomended is the piatto d’erbe alla lucana which is made with onions, eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, garlic, basil and parsley cooked together and seasoned with olive oil.
Due to the fact Vitantonio Lombardo Ristorante has won The Best Contemporary Restaurant in Basilicata 2019 – they will attend The Love Italian Life 2019 Awards in Dublin on November 19th with the chance to win the following extra two awards:
1) The Best Contemporary Restaurant in Italy 2019
2) The Best Male Italian Chef in Europe 2019
