We chose to eat early and not have to struggle with reservations on a Friday night. Especially since we had been turned away once. The expectation hanging over the place was inevitable. We sat down to efficient and professional service from who we guessed is probably the lady owner. If not, they probably have some great incentive scheme going for their employees. Iced water was poured promptly and drinks orders taken while she left us alone for a little while to pore the menu.
A typical menu of a casual Italian eatery, offering up appetizers, pastas, pizzas and a small selection of meats/seafood.
|Caprese alla Bufala|
Buffalo Mozzarella with vine ripe tomatoes
|Cartoccio di Mare|
Seafood wrapped in tin foil
|Wagyu Beef Cheek braised in a red wine sauce|
I didn't have dessert since I was distracted by the durian mooncakes available 2 shops away. Overall, it's a comfy laid back joint, and I might go back. If I do, I would try the other items on the menu since what we ordered didn't really blow us away. Bruno's is still my choice Italian joint in the East but Osteria has some potential. The chefs are really quite good, as long as the produce they have to work with improves.
