Osteria Papavero is a gem of an Italian restaurant tucked away behind the Capitol building in Madison, Wisconsin. Have lived in Italy, I can honestly say that the food here is as good and as authentic as anything you'll find there. Everything is freshly prepared (the place has its own garden and cures some of its own meats) and served with style and elegance. Plus, everything from the antipasto platters to the desserts is simply delicious. The excellent wine (and beer) list can provide you with something that beautifully accompanies anything on the menu. The atmosphere is pleasant, the wait staff friendly and professional, and the price is well worth the quality and quantity of the food you're getting. Highly highly recommended.
