A restaurant in Italy won the 2016 World's 50 Best Restaurants award. The award is like the Oscars of food. Italian food is loved worldwide, but this is the first time an Italian restaurant won the prize. The chef (and owner) was very happy. He said: "I want to thank everyone….Our job is all about art…in the kitchen."

The award is good for business. The restaurant is fully booked six months ahead. Customers will fly to Italy to eat at the restaurant. The chef won for his creative and original food. He makes amazing shapes with cheese. One of his desserts is called, "Oops, I Dropped the Lemon Tart". The chef drops it from half a metre onto a plate.
