SHANGHAI -- If you start from China, it takes some effort to visit Da Vittorio, a three-star Michelin restaurant, outside Bergamo in the hills of northern Italy. You have to plan and make your reservations weeks in advance. And you may need a detour: It does not fit easily into the standard whistle-stop tour of Italy, usually focused on Rome, Florence and Venice.

But so many Chinese travelers have made the culinary pilgrimage to the hillside village of Brusaporto, where Da Vittorio was founded over 50 years ago, that the restaurant has decided to come to them -- and has opened a branch this summer in Shanghai.
