Osteria flies under the radar but the restaurant does excellent, home-style Italian fare in a sophisticated yet relaxed and inviting environment. The traditional cuisine has won over many homesick Italian expats. The pizzas and pastas are done with respect to classic, authentic recipes without being tired; the recommended spaghetti mancini is a satisfyingly hearty dish loaded with fresh seafood and tomatoes. Starters also hold their own—the beef carpaccio is tender
and flavorful, and the other favorite starter, Ligurian octopus salad, is a balance of delectable chewiness and delightful herby freshness from the basil pesto.
