Via della Porcellana, 9/r
Located just behind the Excelsior Hotel, 13 Gobbi (13 hunchbacks; Italian superstition says they're good luck) has a charming inner courtyard in which to dine on Enrico Verrecchia's light and flavorful Tuscan cuisine. The stew-like peposo is a tender cut of beef, simmered for hours in wine and black peppercorns, while the eggplant parmesan is a favorite of vegetarians. Desserts are incredible, too; try the yummy homemade cheesecake! Reservations recommended; make them by e-mail, to the attention of Sig.ra Gabriella.
