Bocca, Tallinn

9 Olevimägi
Estonia 10123
Tel: 372 611 7290's insider take:

Tallinn has several excellent Italian restaurants, which isn't surprising considering that the town attracts a lot of Italian tourists. But Bocca, located in Old Town, is easily the most stylish. The interior juxtaposes exposed brick and a vaulted ceiling with furnishings that look as if they're straight out of a B&B Italia showroom. Similarly, the food adds a new twist to traditional staples, such as salmon carpaccio with an avocado-and-strawberry salad, lemon-and-cinnamon- ricotta–stuffed ravioli, and lamb sweetbreads cooked in Parmesan. There's also a bar with an extensive list of cocktails, including the earthquake—a blend of gin, whiskey, absinthe, and grenadine that's so potent, Bocca has a one-per-customer policy.

Open daily noon to midnight.
