Cà D'Oro alla Vedova

If you’re looking to fulfill the cliche of eating at a restaurant that feels like your zia’s cozy living room, look no further than this spot right off the busy Strada Nova. Along with the lace-covered light fixtures and copper pots hanging from the ceiling, there are fantastic heavier dishes like fried meatballs made with shredded slow-cooked beef and the wonderfully firm polenta cicchetti topped with baccalà mantecato. Sure, you can pop in for a quartino of Italian wine and some snacks, but you should stay for a full meal and get some spaghetti alle vongole or spaghetti alla busara with tomatoes, chili, and prawns.
