While Marcella's deserved to be voted the best Italian restaurant, it also could have won in the Best Place to Share a Meal category - if such a thing existed. The fresh-baked, oval-shaped pizzas and beautiful plates of cheeses and cured meats are easily split between friends, allowing everyone to try more of those delectable dishes. Even if you don't initially plan on sharing, after one bite of the Braised Veal Meatball you'll be telling your dining companion, "Oh my gosh, you have to try this!"

Runners-up: Basi Italia, Giuseppe's
