Concierge.com's insider take:
If you can't stand to look at another fondue, try one of Valerio's pizzas. This Italian restaurant has all the classic trattoria trappings (Chianti bottles, red-and-white checked tablecloths) and an enormous following among locals and visitors alike since its opening in 1983. Colorful owner Valerio Comazetto fusses over his cherished wood-burning oven as if it were a vintage Ferrari. It's not all pizza, however, don't miss the spaghetti with king prawns or the beef carpaccio with crumbled Parmesan. Comazetto also makes a mean margherita.
Open noon to 11:30 pm.
