Recent years have seen an impressive development and diffusion of web applications to food domains, e.g., Yelp, TripAdvisors. These mainly exploit text for searching and retrieving food facilities, e.g., restaurants, caffe, pizzerias. The main features of such applications are: The location and quality of the facilities, where quality is extrapolated by the users' reviews. More recent options also enable search based on restaurant categorization, e.g., Japanese, Italian, Mexican. In this work, we introduce Appetitoso1, an innovative approach for finding restaurants based on the dishes a user would like to taste rather than using the name of food facilities or their general categories.
