Paganelli's Risotteria

Andrea Boscherini, the head chef at Paganelli's Risotteria, once known as Romagna Mia, introduces palates to the fare of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, where he grew up, by making traditional Northern Italian sauces, pastas, and pizzas by hand. He also whets appetites with charcuterie plates of house-made cured pork and beef through his duties as salumiere—an Italian term that roughly translates to "meat wizard." Visitors can even bring the tastes of the eatery's delicious meats home by grabbing a pound of Paganelli's pancetta or salami—made from naturally raised meats from family farms. The Italian traditions continue in the dining room, where families gather around candlelit tables to tuck into award-winning risottos, Romagnolo-style seafood stew, and shanks of veal paired with imported Italian wines.
