It is with great pleasure and satisfaction that today we want to make all our loyal customers participate but also those who still do not know us well about an important change that represents a turning point for The black sheep. But first we want to talk a little about you, who we are and what we do, which is why many of you have chosen us as the best guide in the food and wine sector.
La Pecora Nera publisher
La Pecora Nera is a publishing house specializing in the food and wine sector. Already from the name we want to convey our intention to represent a voice out of the chorus in the world of gastronomy. And what might have seemed like a utopia to us has become a reality thanks above all to the excellent success achieved right away. Let's now know our story before mentioning an event that marks a significant turning point for the publishing house.
We founded the publishing house in 2005 which has always specialized in the food and wine sector and is active in Lazio, Lombardy and Piedmont. Through visits in real anonymity a group of food critics (who pay the bill like any other customer), draw up guides in which they report their experiences in detail trying to focus on all those aspects that interest the reader. The kitchen, of course, but also the service, including incorrect behavior towards the customer. As a summary data the vote is used.
"When using a guide like this - says the President of the Lazio Region, Nicola Zingaretti -, you don't browse a directory, let alone a price list. A journey takes place that unites the environment, history, people, products and therefore the very identity of a territory".
Much of our paper production is also declined on digital media so as to allow the user a more immediate and mobile use of the contents.

It is with great pride that we want to share with you our turning point represented by an important decision: that of merge into one guide the three annual publications published so far regarding Rome (Roma nel Piatto, Saporario Roma and Rome for the Goloso). Rome of La Pecora Nera is the new unified guide that suggests to the reader the tables of the region in which to eat, the tasty breaks during the day and the shops in which to make a quality shopping in the capital.
