Fodor's Review

In the back room of the Salumeria Giusti, established in 1605 and reportedly the world's oldest deli, you'll find four tables in a room tastefully done with antique furnishings. You'll also find some of the best food in Emilia Romagna—perfectly executed takes on traditional dishes. The gnocco fritto (fried dough) with salumi (cured meats) arrives as little clouds of lightly fried dough, topped with pancetta, or prosciutto, among other things. The anolini

in brodo (tiny cheese-stuffed pasta in broth) might feature the most fragrant broth in the world—inhale the aroma before tucking in. If you're tempted by too many things, half-portions may be available. Just leave room for dessert, especially La Tassina: served in a little espresso cup, it bursts with chocolate, anise, and egg. The wine list is divine, as is the staff. Reserve well ahead.
