AllMusic Review by

Released in 2007, The Best of Paolo Conte gathers 20 of the Italian pianist and singer/songwriter's biggest hits from his 30-year career. Adding a modern twist to the European cabaret sound he grew up with, this remastered collection includes breakthrough single "Un Gelato al Limon," Italian football fan favorite "Azzurri," and tracks from his previous album Una Faccia in Prestito. Featuring a combination of jazz, pop, and Latin, it also includes his own versions of tracks he penned for other artists in the '60s (Bruno Lauzi's "Genova Per Noi"), and several songs that garnered attention in the U.S., thanks to their appearance on various movie soundtracks ("Come Di," "Via con Me").
