I see there are two Italian releases of this available. Can anybody advise which has the best picture quality?

Cult Media (Italian and English)
Seven 7 (Italian and French)

Are you certain the Cult Media one has an English track Marc?

Here's an old comparison between NoShame and Seven 7:

Can anyone comment on this?

R2 Italy - Cult Media
Extras:Stills Gallery
2 US Trailers
Subtitles:Italian (x2, one incorrectly flagged as English)
Aspect Ratio:1.33:1
Picture Format: Non-Anamorphic
TV System: PAL
Soundtrack(s):Italian Dolby Digital 5.1
Italian Dolby Digital 2.0 Dual Mono
English Dolby Digital 2.0 Dual Mono
Case type:Keep Case
Notes:Incorrectly authored at 4:3 non-anamorphic, the image is actually horizontally squeezed and contains the original 1.66:1 image, with minimal zooming/cropping.
The English audio track features one line in Italian (no English sub) at 35m04s following the line "We found some Gamma rays in the cave".

The old transfer had severe cropping going on imho with even heads being lopped off...both Italian Noshame and French dvd have the cropping (both reframed to 1.58:1 and 1.62:1 respectively)

Have a look (especially for the "dancing girl scene") here for the old dvd's and lots of caps:
