Tel: 372 644 0470's insider take:

Controvento's location—down a narrow alleyway in Old Town—is so impossibly charming you'll think you've stumbled onto a stage set. More traditional than Bocca, this Italian-owned restaurant is the place to go for hearty bowls of pasta and excellent thin-crust pizzas. From the pomodoro e mozzarella to the cannelloni con ricotta e spinaci and the obligatory tiramisu, there's nothing surprising on the menu. But you come here for old favorites, not experimentation. In the summer, try to nab one of the outdoor tables; if it's crowded, you can usually squeeze in at the bar to eat.

Open daily noon to 10:45 pm.
