Winner of the OpenTable Diners’ Choice award in 2015, Tutti Matti has been downtown’s definitive destination for high-end rustic Italian for more than a decade. The tenets of true Tuscan gastronomy are evident in dishes like house-made pinci pasta with artisanal pork sausage, fresh peas and Pecorino Toscano or a sous vide rabbit with fennel, lemon and polenta. Tutti Matti may not be the most decked out of dining rooms; in fact it’s pretty old-school ordinary. But foodies flock there because chef and owner Alida Solomon⎯one of a handful of local female chefs⎯delivers some of the most robust flavours in the city. Everything is made in house, including fresh breads. Solomon is the recipient of the prestigious L’Eccio D’Oro for Osteria of the Year in 2009, an award also won by Mario Batali and Alain Ducasse.
