Dear guests

Associazione Italiana Ristoratori, A.I.R., Union of Italian restaurants was founded in 1998 after 5 years of preparation.

The manifest of the new union war marked on the 10th of june 1998, with the presentation of the first sign at Ristorante SanGiovanni in Aalborg. It was the Italian ambassador in Denmark at the time, Giacomo Ivancich-Biaggini, that presented the sign.

Giovanni Volpi has, in collaboration with former vice-consul Virgilio Zennaro and Comites’ member Giuseppe Tatti, been the people behind the union, and with support from the Italian embassy and the Slow Food movement.

The purpose with the union is to protect the genuine Italian “cucina”, from a trattoria or a pizzeria or a 3 star gourmet restaurant, and to give the guests an assurance that the chosen place is Italian. You can find a list of all our members on the site.

The sign is made out personal to the member, and is a circle with the Minerva holding an olive branch, and that I our guarantee for a true Italian restaurant.

Best regards

Giovanni Volpi
