Lauded by foodies as one of the very best new Italian kitchens in the capital, Osteria Ferrara is the brainchild of the Sicilian-Milanese couple Federica Mancioppi and Fabrizio Ferrara, former owners of the much-beloved Caffe des Cioppi. Fans were relieved when the couple revived their culinary talents at the present-day restaurant, serving regional and traditional dishes that keep patrons coming back again and again.

Try the “pizza fritta”: an indulgent fried dough that's topped with ingredients such as speck, radicchio and pecorino; fresh pastas with a focus on fresh, invigorating flavors; or burrata cheese straight from Puglia, served with fresh, crunchy beets. The wine list features numerous excellent Italian vintages, and the prices are generally reasonable here. 

The one downside? They're not open on weekends, so make sure to reserve your table before they all get snagged during the weekdays.
