Chef Michael Pirolo spent years traveling and cooking at Michelin-starred temples in Piedmont, Lombardy, Bologna, and Campagne. When he returned to the United States, he linked up with Scott Conant and eventually led the opening of Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach before debuting his own Italian restaurant, Macchialina. Pirolo's arsenal is as vast and precise as that of a championship basketball team. The veal and pork meatballs he calls polpettine are lighter than manna from Heaven, and the veal parmigiana arrives with bubbling cheese and tangy tomato sauce. Insider tip: Thursday evenings, Pirolo offers a selection of his pasta dishes for only $10.
