Stanley Tucci’s cocktail tutorials were winning over fans in early quarantine, and it looks like his new show, “Searching for Italy,” is giving them even more to swoon over.

The six-part CNN series follows the award-winning actor as he travels through Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Rome, Bologna, Milan, Tuscany, and Sicily.

And yes, he’s technically there to eat and talk about food. But he’s also impeccably dressed and showing off his “sneaky cut” physique, which generated plenty of buzz on Twitter.

Viewers took to Twitter to gush about the show, Italian food, and Tucci’s bod

After the show aired its first episode focusing on Naples and the Amalfi Coast on Sunday, Twitter users flocked to the social-media platform to show their support for the actor.

While some simply enjoyed watching his culinary and travel adventures, others took a more direct approach and raved about how good he looks.

Beyond Tucci’s looks, some fans simply appreciated that this show provides the exact kind of escapism they’ve been craving during the pandemic.

This isn’t the first time fans are showing Tucci some love

The resurgence of Tucci appreciation started in April when the “Julie & Julia” actor showed off his real-life bartending skills.

Tucci showed fans how to make his version of the perfect Negroni, to which one Twitter user, Mark McDevitt, said, “Nothing — and I mean nothing — has soothed me in the last six weeks quite like the way Stanley Tucci making a ‘Negroni’ on Instagram has.”

Following the viral success of his makeshift mixology classes, Tucci made a quarantini on brother-in-law John Krasinski’s web series. He then took on another cocktail, the old fashioned, in October, and in December, he made a Christmas cosmo for his family.
