    I've been to all of them except #10 Il Bacareto. However for #8 Shibuya and #5 Trattoria Angiolino, I've only been once to those places.

    Like most rankings, specially these based in culinary accomplishments, the opinions are fairly biased and relative. Most people are bound to disagree with these as everyone has their own different gauges of what constitutes a good restaurant. Additionally, it is hard to compare different types of foods and different price levels, etc.

    Having said all this, I think the list is pretty solid. I wholeheartedly disagree with La Cassina even being a top 5. I believe it is extremely pricey for what they bring to the table. Almost every single time I've been there I have left disappointed. I think most of these restaurants are getting more notoriety due to being "flashy" and "upscale" rather than for the quality of their food (the quality of their food is good, nonetheless).

    I strongly agree with Nipau, I think it is a very good & solid restaurant and I am happy to see it in this list. I agree with Pat'e Palo as well, very solid restaurant. The rest you could argue.

    Keep in mind though that when sitting peacefully in one of these establishments some thug can ride up on a motorcycle and rob or shoot you in the back.

    I can never get in the place. The parking lot is always full of Ultra expensive vehicles. Seriously.

    If you wondering if a place is good and expensive, just check to see how many govt. jeepetas there are in the parking lot.

    Meanwhile, back at the cafeteria, thousands of dollars of expensive food is tossed every day. (But that's another thread)

    I have been to Pat e Palo several times and every single time I think it is terrible. The last time we went my food was cold and my colleague was served fish which had definitely gone off. While we were waiting for replacement dishes, having not eaten anything at all, the waiter returned and asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. A lot of people I know are saying that it has seriously gone down.

    I think that Buche Perico is far better for food quality, ambience and value for money. I'm surprised they didn't make it onto the list.
