The Love Italian Life Awards is proud to announce the nominees for The Best Authentic Italian Restaurant in London 2019 Award which will be decided by public vote shortly.
The shortlisted restaurants will have an exciting opportunity to win a final place in The Love Italian Life 2019 Awards in Dublin on November 19th which is an international ceremony celebrating the greatest Italian restaurants and their authentic chefs across Italy, UK & Ireland.
The restaurants in London 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.
With a population of 8.7 million people and hundreds upon hundreds of so called Italian restaurants to choose from in the capital – finding truly authentic Italian cuisine dining experiences can be a challenge the further away from Italy you go.
This is why the British public are so eager to see which of the following London nominees will celebrate victory by winning the ‘Best Authentic Italian Restaurant in London 2019’ award.
The city is holding its breath to see whether Roberto Costa and his Macellaio RC restaurant group along with their executive head chef Matteo Riganelli can retain the coveted top spot for the second year in a row.
Central Italy waits in anticipation to discover if the 2017 winner Igor Iacopini and his marchigiani team from Rossodisera in Covent Garden can be victorious.
Emilia-Romagna features heavily this year with the two restaurants Via Emilia from Christian Pero and Stecca by Stefano Stecca both representing the food valley as the latest 2019 nominees.
The south of Italy are well represented by Calabrian Chef Patron Francesco Mazzei of Sartoria in Mayfair with his third nomination in a row for the top culinary prize in London for Italian restaurants.
Like Francesco, Masterchef Italia judge Giorgio Locatelli of the Michelin starred Locanda Locatelli in Marylebone celebrates his third successive nomination for the London accolade.
The shortlisted restaurants and their chefs are:
Locanda Locatelli | Giorgio Locatelli
Macellaio RC | Matteo Riganelli
Rossodisera | Matteo Lorenzini
Sartoria | Francesco Mazzei
Stecca | Stefano Stecca
Online voting links for each of the restaurants featured above will soon be open to the public to cast their vote on which shortlisted nominee should become ‘The Best Authentic Italian Restaurant in London 2019’.
The winning restaurant will then be announced at The Love Italian Life 2019 Awards in Dublin on November 19th.
