Italian

Located inside the Hilton Embassy Suites, this old-school eatery serves authentic Northern Italian food like fettucine alfredo, eggplant parmesan, veal piccata, and oysters Rockefeller. It's the signature outpost of the Grisanti family, veterans of the Italian dining scene in Memphis, and regulars know to order the "Elfo Special" -- a heaping plate named for one of the family's patriarchs, consisting of spaghetti, shrimp, mushrooms, and decadent garlic butter. It might not be the fanciest spot in town, but you can't beat Italian hospitality; from the moment you enter to the second you ask for the check, the staff genuinely want you to have a good time.
