Where to sample the best Italian food this side of the Atlantic, whether you’re craving pizza or a chef’s tasting menu starring prosciutto and truffles.

Vetri, Philadelphia

15 of 30

Philadelphia isn’t always given its due, but when it comes to Italian food, the country has a lot to learn from James Beard Award–winning chef Marc Vetri. He studied in Bergamo, Italy, before opening this 40-seat namesake restaurant in 1998 in a brownstone with hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams, and candlelit tables. All he’s done since is garner some of the highest accolades from the most trusted critics and sources. The menu changes frequently, but some signatures to seek out include the spinach gnocchi with brown butter, the sweet onion crêpe with white truffle, and the baby goat with freshly stone-milled polenta.
