Trattoria Il Migliore is a neighborhood bistro tucked in a tiny strip mall, where traditional Italian fare is given a modern twist. The urban décor is felt immediately, thanks to exposed brick walls and pulsing rock music, though old black and white movies are always playing along one wall. The menu is equally esoteric, with highlights that include homemade Kobe meatballs, reimagined fettuccine, tagliatelle and gnocchi. Tableside bread service is familiar and satisfying, while the dessert tiramisu is the perfect ender to the evening. With large portions, it may be best to share a dish or two, but no matter what, guests should opt for the Tuscan fries – cut in-house, fried with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and then tossed with a pinch of Parmesan cheese and crunchy herbs.
