Best Italian Soul Food

Corso

The simple rustic dishes of Tuscany and its capital of Florence warm
the body and soothe the spirit like few other cuisines on the Italian
peninsula, and the region’s richly soulful culinary traditions are
beautifully exemplified at Corso, a friendly Shattuck Avenue trattoria
from Rivoli’s Wendy Brucker and Roscoe Skipper. Take a seat at the big
communal table and dig into a bowl of warm polenta ribboned with lush
mascarpone; a thick, hearty chowder of ham, mustard greens, and
potatoes; or a platter of fresh papardelle pasta draped with a rich
ragout of braised duck and Gaeta olives, and you’ll stagger away a
happy paisano. A rich, juicy Niman Ranch braciola and a sweet,
earthy mushroom pizza fragrant with truffle oil are equally
soul-stirring. Meanwhile, the house panna cotta is a silky,
satisfying dream, and there are plenty of Italian vintages to truly
inspire that Tuscan dream state.
