Riccardo Michi sends out the real deal—authentic Tuscan and northern Italian food in his charming trattoria. Start with something as mellow as fava beans with a crumble of black truffle pecorino cheese or as offalicious as classic honeycomb tripe florentine. Pastas are a must, notably the veal ravioli with creamy porcini meat sauce and spaghetti chitarra carbonara. Veal and ricotta meat loaf with porcini cream sauce and Tuscan fries is pure Italian comfort, while grilled prawns circling bacon-wrapped sea scallops in lobster bisque sauce with green lentils is a tad rich—like most of Michi’s fare. But hang in for panna cotta with passion fruit coulis. Fairly priced Italian wines.
