Fodor's Expert Review Osteria del Tempo Perso

$$ Ravenna Italian Fodor's Choice

A couple of jazz-, rock-, and food-loving friends joined forces to open this smart little restaurant in the center. The interior's warm terra-cotta-sponged walls give off an orange glow, and wine bottles line the walls, interspersed with photographs of musical greats—but the food is what counts. Here you'll find nicely done classics—like cappelletti prepared three different ways (sauced with butter, with a meat ragù, or in brodo)—as well as more contemporary fare. The medaglioni di rana pescatrice arrostiti (roasted monkfish with artichokes) is an absolute winner. The carefully culled wine list includes many local wines, and service is stellar.
