Trattoria Toscana

We’re reluctant to give up this little storefront gem, but its ribbons of house-made pappardelle and tender raviolis are just too delightful not to share. The bubbling braised tripe and perfectly charred tagliata are right out of Nonna’s Tuscan kitchen—which is fitting, since the wood tables, simple wine selection, and servers with alluring Italian accents could be, too.
