Our inaugural Best of Patch contest kicks off this week with Italian on our minds.
Here are some of our favorite places, but if we're leaving one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll add it:
Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments in the section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.
This poll is not scientific, and it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined based on poll results, comments on this page and on ratings and reviews on Patch Places.
Hint: The ratings and reviews count extra.
So tell us what your favorite Italian place is. And don't forget to tell us in the comments below why.
