2. Piastra Italian Cuisine
Location: Downtown Salt Lake Marriott
220 South State St.
Salt Lake City, UT 84111
Fine Dining at the Marriott City Center. "I was staying at the Marriott City Center by myself on a recent business trip and was very pleased to find such a fine restaurant in the Hotel. I stayed here for four nights and ate at Piastra 3 of those nights. I highly recommend trying this place, the food was high-end, with reasonable prices. The chicken kabobs were fabulous and I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the chocolate crepes were. My last morning there I stopped by the restaurant for the breakfast buffet and was not disappointed, the hot food selection was plentiful and the omelet station was a nice addition. If you find yourself in this area of the city treat yourself to a nice meal at Piastra". A traveler/diners review.

5. Rovali's Ristorante Italiano
Very rarely do we get up to the Ogden, except to play Valley View in Layton, one of Utah's best golf courses. But after getting hints about an italian restaurant that we just had to try, we gave it a shot. Drove 40 minutes north to a family owned restaurant in Ogden called Rovalis. Didn't tell anyone working there as usual, don't want special treatment nor free food. Here are some of the dishes we tried. The linguini w/ clams, delicate baby clams sauteed in fresh garlic, herbs, extra virgin olive oil, with a touch of crushed red pepper. The pesto w/ fresh basil, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese tossed with spaghetti. And the chicken marsala, juicy boneless chicken breast, tossed with a herb breading and sauteed with marsala wine, olive oil, mushrooms, and herbs. All three dishes were excellent! They have a full service Espresso & Cocktail bar with a wide variety of drinks to choose from. The service is exceptional, the food is moderately priced and well worth the drive from Salt Lake!
Located in Ogden at 174 Historic 25th St. - Phone: 801-394-1070
