Prezza is far enough from Hanover Street that you won’t have to deal with packs of tourists, but close enough that you can make your way over there for an espresso and cannoli at the end of the night. For dinner, you’ll get respectfully done, old-school Italian food in a candlelit dining room that doesn’t force the ambiance with too much viola music. We recommend starting with the burrata and ending with the tagliatelle.
