This Italian restaurant is so good it manages to be both subtle and hearty — exactly what you want from the finest Italian cuisine. The braciola di maiale Valdostana dish consists of three pork cutlets pounded thin and rolled with prosciutto and fontina — you might dream of it weeks after eating. Try to leave room for dessert, so you can share the thin crust Nutella and strawberry pizza — it's just as good as it sounds.
