News _ Marchio Ospitalita' Italiana



What is it about

Italian cuisine has always been an important tool for the promotion of Italy and has effectively promoted not only Italian products but also the Italian economy and culture the world over. Italian cuisine is appreciated by Americans and local restaurants serving it are often preferred destinations for a fine dining experience. Thus restaurants have a significant role to play in this promotional exercise and thus it is required that those serving authentic Italian cuisine are recognized.

It is with this purpose that Unioncamere and Assocamerestero in collaboration with Federazione Italiana Pubblici Esercizi and with the support of Istituto Nazionale Ricerche turistiche - ISNART have constituted the certification "Ospitalità Italiana - Ristoranti Italiani nel Mondo" - a seal of quality, to be conferred on Italian restaurants around the world.

The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast (IACCSE) collaborated with the organizers in the selection of local restaurants in South Florida serving authentic Italian cuisine, for the certification and seeking participation of those eligible for the "Premio Ristoranti Italiani nel Mondo", Italian restaurants in the world award 2010, which is conferred on the best Italian restaurant annually.


  • To develop and promote the traditions of Italian food products and upgrade the culture of Italian food and wine;
  • To enhance the image of Italian restaurants abroad that guarantee respect of the quality standards of Italian hospitality;
  • To create an international network, providing for the realisation of promotional events of Italian productive excellence.
