This cobblestoned foodie enclave in the centro storico has gotten even more delicious in the past year. Lucio Sforza’s Tuscan roots are front and center at L’Asino d’Oro (73 Via del Boschetto; dinner for two $78), where you’ll get revamped classics such as duck ravioli with a cardoon purée. Part cooking school, part bakery, Tricolore (126 Via Urbana; lunch for two $29) serves decadent sandwiches—try the poached organic eggs from cult purveyor Paolo Parisi, served with truffles on corn bread. Up the street, Aromaticus (134 Via Urbana; lunch for two $20) is where urban farmers go for their gardening needs. Plants and tools take up the front room, while a small kitchen in back serves herb-filled salads and baccalà carpaccio. A five-minute stroll away, Antico Forno ai Serpenti (122 Via dei Serpenti; lunch for two $15) resurrected the name of an 1800’s bakery that once occupied the marble-lined space. Grab a loaf of pane di campagna to go, or stay for a warm pumpkin-and-gorgonzola panino, one of the seasonal specials.
