(ANSA) - Rome, August 7 - Only seven restaurants in Italy -
including a roadside pork-sandwich cart - made it into the
European chapter of Newsweek magazine's top 101 restaurants in
the world.
The newsmagazine, based in the United States, collaborated
with online news outlet the Daily Beast, to ask top chiefs
around the world to compile a list for each continent.
From Italy, two of the seven top picks are in the Tuscan
town of Cortona, made famous by Hollywood's 'Under the Tuscan
Sun' romance flick.
One of the choices from Cortona is a porchetta truck.
The best spaghetti alla carbonara, according to Tim Love,
Lonesome Dove Western Bistro chef of Fort Worth, Texas, is to be
found in Florence's Caffe' Duomo.
Jamie Oliver, famous for his work in Britain to support
better nutrition for youth, raved about a restaurant in downtown
Bari which specializes in deep-fried polenta.
"There is a very old woman - I think she has just one tooth
- and she sits on a low stool with a pile of polenta that looks
like a stack of gold bar," Oliver says in the Newsweek listings.
"In front of her is a cauldron of hot oil. She clanks up
one of the bars, deep-fat-fries it, and serves it in a paper
cone with sea salt. Amazingly delicious".
Italian chefs were left scratching their heads over some of
the choices, questioning whether street vendors should be lumped
in with fine-dining establishments.
