Best Italian Soul Food

Corso

The simple rustic dishes of Tuscany and its capital of Florence warm the body and soothe the spirit like few other cuisines on the Italian peninsula, and the region's richly soulful culinary traditions are beautifully exemplified at Corso, a friendly Shattuck Avenue trattoria from Rivoli's Wendy Brucker and Roscoe Skipper. Take a seat at the big communal table and dig into a bowl of warm polenta ribboned with lush mascarpone; a thick, hearty chowder of ham, mustard greens, and potatoes; or a platter of fresh papardelle pasta draped with a rich ragout of braised duck and Gaeta olives, and you'll stagger away a happy paisano. A rich, juicy Niman Ranch braciola and a sweet, earthy mushroom pizza fragrant with truffle oil are equally soul-stirring. Meanwhile, the house panna cotta is a silky, satisfying dream, and there are plenty of Italian vintages to truly inspire that Tuscan dream state.
