Best Celebrity Spotting and Flatbread (2008)


Obscurely located and with a darkened interior, Malatesta is a favorite of slumming celebrities. You won't break the bank with the lusty fare from Emilia-Romagna, including a delicious oven-baked flatbread called piadina, which comes wrapped around a handful of fillings (my favorite: spinach). A certain tow-headed star who distinguished himself as an acting tour de force in the blockbuster The Beach has been spotted here repeatedly.
