This charming Italian eatery is garnering quite a rep for its meat-free pizzas. Highlights include the Ariano Irpino (with wood-oven-grilled veggies) and the Bellapigna. Gluten-free diners will be delighted to discover a crust that isn't a disappointing cardboard facsimile.

Best Restaurant for a First Date 2015: Get transported to Southern Italy, complete with a wood-burning oven and a spiral staircase leading to a more intimate setting upstairs. Scour the extensive wine, beer and pizza menus by candlelight to craft a perfect first date meal you won’t forget. Finish the evening with a scoop of homemade gelato.

Best Gelato 2016: Mix-and-match your way to the perfect balance of creamy indulgence. Amid Ariano’s rustic-chic setting, sample house-made standouts like tiramisu, stracciatella and hazelnut. More adventurous palates gavitate to flavors like Nutella crunch and fig.
