What are Charlie Trotter's favorite Italian restaurants in Chicago?
You can start with Spiagga, which is a fantastic place. Or, you can go to a more, 'it's all about pasta' place — there's a neighborhood place in [Lincoln Park] called Pasta Palazzo, and I think my wife and I eat there every other week. The local Coco Pazzo I think does a good job, too. You also have the crazy Italian Village, and that's great because you've got three different dining opportunities in one building, from fine dining to La Cantina to another.
