Modena-based Osteria Francescana has once again clinched a top spot in the annual awards for the world's 50 best restaurants. The restaurant lost out only to Renè Redzepi's Copenhagen-based Noma which reclaimed the number one slot and Spain's El Celler de Can Roca which came in second.

Last year the four-time Danish winner lost out to the Spanish eatery, breaking its winning streak which it continued between 2010 and 2012. First opened in 1995, Bottura's Osteria Francescana was awarded its first Michelin star in 2002, a second four years later, and a third in 2011.
