Gambero Rosso - wine and restaurant guide for Italy
Although the wine world immediately thinks of the wine guide established in 1988, as soon as Gambero Rosso is mentioned, it is a publishing house. Actually, it is the book Vini d'Italia, which year after year provides information about the best wines from Italy. In addition, there is a restaurant guide from the Gambero Rosso publishing house, which promises no less delicacies from Italian hands. However, the significance of the book Vini d'Italia is so enormous that Gambero Rosso has established itself as a synonym for the annually published book.
The rating system of Gambero Rosso
Being listed in the Vini d'Italia book is an honor in itself. All the wines in Gambero Rosso are of above-average quality. But here, too, a lush discrepancy opens up between above-average good and exceptional. So what do the Gambero Rosso glasses say?

2 glasses a very good wine
2 red glasses a very good wine that made it to the selection process for 3 glasses, but failed to convince there.
3 glasses the Tre biccieri are reserved only for exceptional wines. Gambero Rosso has expanding a separate list where you can find wines with 3 glasses for under 15 €.
L'Osteria Gambero Rosso - the red crab restaurant
In Italian literature, the somewhat naive and good-natured Pinocchio has a firm place. On his way between puppet theaters and school corridors, he also finds himself in the company of the deceitful alliance of cat and fox. The two vagabonds in aged frocks are after Pinocchio's 5 gold coins, but first want to feast at the expense of the wooden puppets at the Red Crab Inn. Despite all the faked stomach ulcers and diets, a rich meal of food and drink soon piles up on the table, although Pinocchio's order exudes frugality. But he is left with the costs. The fox and the cat are long gone, but the bill is not. Relieved of some of his coins, he leaves and leaves the l'Osteria Gambero Rosso.
