Osteria Francescana's Ragu and Spaghetti Cetarese

Osteria Francescana, a three-Michelin-star restaurant based in Modena, Italy, has been listed in the top five of the world's best restaurants since 2010. Owned by Italian chef Massimo Bottura, the gourmet eatery specializes in creative reboots of classic Italian food.

"At Osteria Francescana, I look to the past all the time, but not in a nostalgic way – in a critical way, to bring the best from the past into the future," Bottura told DuJour. "Contemporary Italian is not a cuisine of revolution, it’s a cuisine of evolution."

Should you not be one of the lucky few to snag a reservation at Osteria anytime soon, you can still sample Bottura's answer to the classic spaghetti bolognese. Called ragu and spaghetti cetarese, it features onion, carrot, pancetta and a pesto glaze that is nothing short of "bellissimo."
