The Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia » Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia: Il Pittore
No, Chris Painter’s elegant namesake restaurant, Il Pittore, isn’t cheap—but it’s a damn good way to spend your money. You’ll find yourself craving the duck agnolotti from this longtime Stephen Starr chef days after you eat it, and the wild boar ragu is truly memorable, despite the fact that everyone seems to be cooking it these days.
Don’t miss: The four-day suckling pig. The skin is crisp, the flesh is succulent, and the pear mostarda accent is divine.
