Stanley Tucci hosts a six-part travel and cooking show currently airing on CNN.
"Searching for Italy" follows the star through different Italian cities and regions.
While the scenery is breathtaking, some fans are more focused on how good Tucci looks.
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.

Some comments took a turn for the blatantly sexual.

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.
