3 Italian Restaurants That Are Also in the US 🇮🇹🇺🇸

It may be some time before you can travel to Italy but you can still get your Italian fix in atleast 3 restaurants in the States!

1. Bonci Pizzeria – Chicago, Illinois
161 N Sangamon St, Chicago
1566 N Damen Ave, Chicago

Chef Gabriele Bonci brought his incredible Roman-style pizza al taglio to America and blessed Chicago with two locations! This pizza is cut with scissors and sold by weight. They offer many different topping options and takeaway is available! Find them on DoorDash, Grubhub and Ubereats. Tip: Order the Suppli!

2. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele
1534 N McCadden Pl, Los Angeles

Another Italian pizzeria has made it to the States! L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele was made famous by Julia Roberts in the movie Eat, Pray, Love. This legendary pizza and other delicious appetizers, pastas and entrees are served at the Los Angeles location. They offer takeaway, delivery and are available on DoorDash, Grubhub and Ubereats. Tip: This pizza is not €4 like it is in Napoli *sad face* but it’s just as good. 

3. Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura
347 N Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills

Opened by Florence’s Michelin-starred chef Massimo Bottura, this gem is situated in the Gucci store on Rodeo Drive. Although it is temporarily closed due to Covid-19, it is worth the splurge when it reopens. A 5-course tasting menu here is $135 and side orders are in the $20 range. Tip: Order Massimo’s famous Tortellini in Parmigiano crema.
