The 2016 Michelin Guide for Italy has just been released, and with it comes a few surprises and shocks. Overall, the guide contains an impressive eight restaurants with three stars, 38 restaurants with two stars, and a whopping 288 restaurants with one star, making it one of the largest Michelin star-represented countries in Europe.
No new restaurants achieved the coveted three-star status, but two restaurants got promoted from one star to two, Gourmetstube Einhorn in Bolzano and Casa Perbellini in Verona.
Davide Scabin’s Combal.Zero restaurant in Turin was actually demoted from two stars to one. The restaurant, located in a castle, consistently makes the list of the Pellegrino 100 Best Restaurants in the World.
There were also 26 new one-star restaurants that made the grade this year.
