2008 BEST Italian Restaurant, Affordable

Trattoria Toscana

This ’07 winner keeps its crown for another year, and deservedly so. We adore the relaxed intimacy of the teeny Fenway trattoria, especially the everyone’s-a-regular welcome from owner Zamir Kociaj (who’s Albanian by birth, but very much Italian by nature). The menu isn’t strictly Tuscan, but no matter: It all tastes wonderful, and the informal vibe makes first-timers feel right at home.
