We sought out this little Restaurant tucked away just behind one of the main streets in Aosta after reading reviews on Trip advisor, as it seemed to be the type of establishment in which we are comfortable, offering good value interesting food. Yet again Trip Advisor reviewers came up trumps.
On our first night in Aosta we arrived for dinner without a reservation just after they opened and already there were a number of diners installed. However we were greeted very warmly and were fortunate enough to get a table for 2 immediately. Our waitress was really kind and friendly, and although she did not speak much English, and our Italian leaves a lot to be desired, with the aid of a menu with English translations, and a lot of smiles we were able to order and enjoy a beautifully prepared and tasty meal in pretty and interesting surroundings. Service throughout was excellent despite a crowded restaurant.
We were planning to visit another recommended restaurant on our 2nd and final evening in Aosta, but it turned out that this was the one day of the week when they were closed. So no contest - we returned to Osteria dell'Oca, again without a reservation, but this time before opening time. Again we were lucky and again welcomed warmly, only this time it was clear that we had been remembered from the previous night and it was almost as though we were old friends. Another delightful meal ensued although my wife could not complete her main course as the helping was too big!
For those who, like me, did not previously know the word "Oca" it is "goose", and the decor of the restaurant is goose themed, which gives it a slight quirkiness. However the meals are truly the "Golden Egg"; well-cooked, tasty and excellent value. The whole experience was an absolute delight.
