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.

Domenica, New Orleans

No, “John Besh” doesn’t sound like the kind of name you’d expect from a chef at one of America’s best Italian restaurants, but with his restaurant Domenica (“Sunday” in Italian), this Mississippi-born, Louisiana-bred, former Marine Corps reservist proves that’s no obstacle to excellence. Also credit chef and partner Alon Shaya for the success of the homey food at the renovated historic Roosevelt Hotel. You’ll have a hard time choosing between the 15 or so different pizzas made in the Pavesi pecan-wood-fired oven featuring top-notch ingredients like cotechino, clam, speck, roast pork shoulder, anchovies, and peaches. Save room for the homemade pastas (specifically the tagliatelle with rabbit ragù), and end your meal with the Gulf fish with peperonata.
