Three Brescia restaurants were among the award-winners in Rome at the presentation of the 2016 Gambero Rosso guide to the restaurants of Italy, the most highly regarded guide in the trade.
The “Tre Gamberi” (“Three Shrimp”) award for “traditional cookery” went to Maurizio Rossi of the Osteria della Villetta 1900 in Palazzolo and to Michele Valotti of Madia in Brione while Lanzani in Brescia took home the “Tre Bottiglie” (“Three Bottle”) award for one of the guide’s best wine bars.
Mauro Piscini of Miramonti L’Altro in Concesio also won the special prize for his cheeses.
Barone Pizzini’s Silvano Brescianini was also in the capital as sponsor of the guide’s regional cuisine prize.
Brescia and the township of Provaglio d’Iseo, where Barone Pizzini is located, will make another appearance when the editors’ wine guide is presented. The winery’s Franciacorta Brut Nature 2011 has already been named as a recipient of the “Tre Bicchieri” (“Three Glasses”) award.
