The best Italian restaurants on island, Virgilio’s serves up Sicilian classics and homemade pastas and risottos, including a hearty “Lasagna de Maria,” from a Virgilio family recipe. You can also get traditional veal and chicken dishes, as well as a sprinkling of fresh-made pizzas, including a terrific pizza del mare, with shrimp and calamari. The restaurant’s old-world charm is enhanced by wood beams and vaulted brick. Paintings in ornate frames line buttery-yellow walls. Look for Virgillo’s tucked in a alley between Main and Back streets.
