New York is the city that never sleeps, but to keep you awake, do you know where to find authentic espresso? On a hot summer afternoon, walking through Central Park, would you know where to find a real gelato to cool off? And an authentic Neapolitan pizza for an outing with friends or a plate of real spaghetti for a date for two?

The answers to all of these pressing questions has been answered on June 24 thanks to I Love Italian Food, who has launched the 100per100 Italian Food Guide of New York: a compilation of over 100 places in the Big Apple that offer authentic Italian cuisine.

To do this, we involved 150 professionals, Italians, NY residents, real ambassadors of Italian food who voted for four categories – Restaurant, Pizza, Gelato, Espresso – suggesting the places where margherita pizza is seasoned with real mozzarella and where the carbonara has no cream among its ingredients.

A new piece for I Love Italian Food in the promotion and protection of the 100per100 Italian, created thanks to the collaboration of friends and ambassadors. Above all, thanks to the hard work done every day by the true warriors of Made in Italy: the chefs who introduce our products and our traditions in the Big Apple.

The exclusive setting for the official launch of the NY Food Guide was the Annual Party of I Love Italian Food’s partner, Urbani Truffle. An evening to celebrate Made in Italy, which gave over 600 guests the unforgettable experience to cruise on the Hudson River, enjoying the Manhattan skyline and taking home the knowledge of the 100per100 Italian guide in NY.

The 100per100 Italian Guide of New York is also available in digital version at and it is possible to find all the places also included on the Authentico App.

The 100per100 Italian Guide of New York is a project of I Love Italian Food, published by Kaiti Expansion and realized thanks to the support of the following partners: Urbani Truffles, Le 5 Stagioni, Smeg USA, Nonno Nanni, Consortium of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP , Sogno Toscano, Valpizza, DHL Global Forwarding, Granoro and Authentico.
