Steakhouses vs. Italian - best of the best
I'm looking for your votes for your favorite steakhouse and italian restaurant... and your favorite dishes there! (Looking for an overall vote considering taste and ambiance, however with more emphasis on the food, of course!)

Mistral isn't an Italian place, while Taranta is actually a fusion of Italian and Peruvian. Other Boston city limits Italian contenders not listed above would include Trattoria Toscana, Sorellina, and Carlo's Cucina outside of the North End and Giacomo's, Pagliuca's, Daily Catch, Maurizio's, and Marco, among others, in the North End.
I'd add Vinny's for 'old school' Italian and depending on my mood for a particular 'cut' of steak, I might choose A&L for bone in fillet, Oak Room for Chateau Briand for 2 or CG for Porterhouse.
