Fodor's Expert Review Osteria da Carmela

$ Centro Storico Italian

Conveniently close to the archaeological museum, yet surprisingly off the tourist beat, this small eatery is patronized by professori from the nearby Academy of Fine Arts and theatergoers from the Teatro Bellini next door. A specialty here is the blend of seafood with vegetables—try the tubettoni con cozze e zucchini (tube-shape pasta with mussels and zucchini) or paccheri al baccalà (large pasta with codfish). If you prefer meat, try the brasato alla Genovese (onion and meat sauce). The service at Osteria is both swift and obliging, and they have one of the best wine lists in the city.
