Best Italian Food

1st Place: Draganetti’s Ristorante

2nd Place: Mona Lisa’s Restaurant

3rd Place: Olive Garden

These three eateries finished one-two-three, in the same order, in this category last year. And while I could just reprint that write-up, journalistic integrity means I needed to do new research. Someone has to do it. Five-time winner Draganetti’s is the first place I take out-of-town guests, who in turn rave about their pizza, chicken parmesan, and fettuccini alfredo. Mona Lisa’s constantly changing menu draws a large crowd down on Water Street. This is where my wife and I go when we have the need to get gussied-up. And on the occasion that I need to ingest vast quantities of breadsticks, salad, and a monster item called “Tour of Italy,” I head to Olive Garden. And then I go to my happy place. — RR
