Osteria

Modern Italian

  • 87
Overview

Since 2007, Osteria has charmed its Spring Garden neighbors with authentic Northern Italian fare prepared by co-owner and 2010 James Beard-award winning chef Jeff Michaud. Set in a rustic dining room marked by reclaimed woods, brick walls and a glass-enclosed courtyard, guests dine on dishes like rabbit casalinga with pancetta served atop soft polenta, ravioli with royal trumpet mushrooms and thyme or wood-fired polpettini pizza with lamb meatballs. Drink offerings include international wines, craft beers and house cocktails like the Sicilian Lemonade (housemade limoncello, mint, lime).
