At 10Best, we're always on the lookout for Memphis's best restaurants, and while we appreciate places that have a broad culinary range, we can't help but adore restaurants that specialize in a given cuisine.
Sure, we are known for barbecue around these parts. But when we're in the mood for Italian food in Memphis, which is quite often, we have a range of fabulous restaurants from which to choose. By far the best-known and likely the most talked about in the city is Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, where you definitely need a reservation and should be prepared to try whatever the waiter recommends. AMIK's chefs have two more eateries on this list, too - more casual yet still amazing spots to try. Midtown's Bari Ristorante e Enoteca - a reader favorite - and the old-school Frank Grisanti's - and any of the restaurants on our list - to be fantastic options for Italian cuisine.
