  1. Two Italian restaurants that are short walks from the Westin are La Traviata and L'Opera. Both are quite good. A short taxi or bus ride away (small red buses, line A) is a more highly regarded Italian restaurant, Michael's on Naples, which might fit the foodie definition better than the other two

    La Traviata

    1. If you haven't yet decided, I would highly recommend La Parolaccia. Not walkable from the Westin, but a short car or cab ride. Great thin crust pizza, excellent pasta, and a perfect Chowhound restaurant.

      If you want closer, Ringo's 1st two recommendations are definitely appropriate.

        WENT TO La Parolaccia last night. Nice food. Had a truffle cream penne pasta dish LOVED it. Pizza was okay. Also had the eggplant app. Good value. Thanks for the recc.
