Mario Batali's Favorite (domestic) Italian Restaurants

Food & Wine asked the ubiquitous Croc-footed super chef, Mario Batali, about his favorite Italian restaurants in the U.S. Among those on the list are  Salumi (Seattle), Vetri (Philadelphia), Porchetta (NYC), Pizzeria Picco (Larkspur, CA) and Pizzeria Bianco (Phoenix).

If you're in the Big Apple, we'd recommend stopping in at Batali's latest venture,  Eataly. Though slightly overwhelming at first, this enormous, bustling temple celebrating all things Italian cuisine will tantalize your tastebuds with 6 restaurants and a market boasting fresh fish, wine, a butcher, countless cheeses, pasta-to-go and much more. The rooftop bar, Birreria, offers stellar views and beer brewed in house (at rooftop prices, of course).
