Villa Crespi named Italian best restaurant by Tripadvisor

Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel guidance platform, today announces its final Travelers’ Choice Award for 2023: Best of the Best Restaurants. As Tripadvisor’s latest seasonal travel data indicates, food is the most exciting factor of upcoming trips – over two-thirds of travelers will prioritize food (67%) during their fall travels. To help guide those planning with their stomachs, Tripadvisor is delivering this year’s best places to eat in top travel destinations around the world.

“Restaurants provide a great way for travelers to get immersed in a destination’s history and culture. This year’s Travelers’ Choice Restaurant winners—whose diversity and geographic reach reflect the fact that the last remaining pandemic-era travel restrictions have lifted—are especially exciting. We know Tripadvisor travelers seek out first-hand intel and guidance, and that’s exactly the spirit of these lists: All of our winners were selected not by professional food critics or editors, but by real diners who have left their feedback on Tripadvisor within the past year.” 

Sarah Firshein, Head of Editorial at Tripadvisor
