An undying favorite of yuppies, families and tourists alike, A16 is known for rustic Italian cooking and a vast selection of delicious, unusual wines from all over the boot. Dinner reservations are indispensable, especially if you want one of the prime counter seats facing the open kitchen and wood-burning pizza oven.
The menu’s pies, pastas and antipasti change with the season, though the delicious maccaronara with ragu napoletana is a staple. Come summer, the zucca pizza is spot on with its wonderfully chewy and blistered crust topped with summer squash, fior di latte, and Grana Padano. And those scissors, just right for slicing it all up, make for a fun bonus. For dessert, look no further than the fig crostata with vanilla gelato.
