1. Belli Osteria 2016 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704 (Berkeley)

The menu's pretty much exclusively Northern Italian, with starters like honey chile-soaked grilled eggplant, and a cheese & salami plate with a Kentucky ham that's similar to speck, but the grandest portion is dedicated to everyone's childhood favorite: Earthworm Jim pogs! No, wait... raviolis! Awesome noodle pillows include a squid ink number filled with prawns, Parm & gorgonzola; a belly and arugula-stuffer in a pork reduction sauce; and a duck-packed job with figs, gorgonzola, and shallots.
