This past weekend I happened to pick up a copy of edible magazine which profiled Osteria. Decided tonight was the night to go out and try. The restaurant totally reminded me of the restaurants in Italy. Smaller, homey and a feel that it is hard to describe. It was not a busy night and we were seated immediately, a nice corner table with a view of the restaurant. The bar area had a full house, but we decided a nice quiet table would be best.
We asked the waiter for his recommendations and what his favorite was. He immediately said the butternut squash tortellini...so we knew that had to be ordered. We ordered a savory spinich pie for and antipasti and then on to tortellini....and the duck leg with an amazing side of greens.
The waiter was great knew we wanted to savor every bite and the bottle of sangiovese we ordered. The savory pie was fresh, flaky and the sauce was so yummy. We took some time between and then he brought on our main entree.
I would definitely have the tortellini again. Home made and delicious. We had it with the sage butter as a sauce. It was absolutely wonderful. The duck was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside... the sauce was a white wine sauce that was subtle, but very tasty. The greens were done to perfection...could have ate a whole plate of just greens.
AHHHHh...still remembering how tasty. For dessert we ordered the italian cookie with biscotti bites. I am not a tiramasu fan nor do I like custard which they did have amaretto custard...
the cookie was AWESOME... we would have licked the plate had no one else been looking.
Overall I rate the restaurant as excellent!! will absolutely head back. Just know this is Northern Italian food... you will not find many dishes with lots of garlic or tons of meat sauce. Very authentic and worth the visit!!
