When you want good Italian food, you just go to Little Italy, right? If only it were that easy. Much like the name would suggest, Little Italy is filled with Italian eateries, and its hard to choose between the authentically delicous places and the tourist traps.

A plentiful variety of cheese grace the plate (smoked cavallo, fontina) and sliced meats (prosciutoo, capicollo, sappresata), along with duck vasetto (think duck pâté), giardiniera (Italian-style pickled veggies) and homemade focaccia. Or go exotic with the Il Picco salad/tomato tower with panko crusted, pan seared heirloom tomatoes, smoked mozzarella, arugula and prosciutto with balsamic vinaigrette.
