On last Tuesday, February 21st, Dubai has been the amazing and modern setting that held the first date of the 100per100 Italian 2018, the evening dedicated to the made in Italy, organized by I Love Italian Food.

In the heart of the Gulf, our cultural Association announced the names of the professionals who have stood out in promoting the real Italian food in Dubai, selected by our network of made in Italy lovers and experts.

“Our missions is spreading the culture of Italian food worldwide, involving the people who want to do this with us, through a 100per100 Italian network and creating connections and relationships with all the professionals of the sector, that actually are the real ambassadors of our cuisine.” said Mr Alessandro Schiatti, CEO and co-founder of I Love Italian Food.

Let’s talk about the awards, the six 100per100 Italian mentions given during the 100per100 Italian Gala.

For the category 100per100 Italian Menu, through the recommendations of our network, the

mention has gone to Il Borro Tuscan Bistro, Italian restaurant which offers a menu that is totally free from any other culinary culture contamination.

Then it was the turn of 100per100 Italian Gelato gone to Massimo’s, important restaurant of Massimo Lapeschi, who recently launched a new project, 800Gelato to offer the experience of a real homemade Italian gelato abroad.

The real Italian pizza couldn’t miss as well, prepared according to the tradition with 100% made in Italy ingredients: Ronda Locatelli is the right place if you want to eat it in Dubai, and this is why it received the 100per100 Italian Pizza mention.

And what about a 100per100 Italian Espresso? Our network has no doubts: Golositalia is the perfect place to taste the real Italian espresso, but also to enjoy a moment of relax and conviviality, in the Italian way, with Sebastiano Maio, founder of the project.

Finally, two last special mentions gone to two key realities of the made in Italy in Dubai:

100per100 Italian Chef gone to Alessandro Miceli, Head Chef of Roberto’s Dubai, one of the oldest Italian restaurants in the area, and 100per100 Italian Restaurant, gone to The Artisan by Enoteca Pinchiorri, that leaded by Chef Luca Tresoldi, contributes to the diffusion of the real Italian cuisine in Dubai.
