When You're Here, You're Family: Osteria Mamma

This is not Olive Garden. This is Osteria Mamma. This is good.

I came here with Starchy Marie quite awhile ago. We had a Blackboard Eats 30% off deal...back when Blackboard Eats was still free. *sigh*

Because it was so long ago, I will simply say that I enjoyed this entire meal. I feel like Starchy Marie and I went to an Italian grandma's house and had a wonderful time. I definitely have fond memories of this night!

Polipolata -- grilled octopus, fresh celery, lemon, extra virgin olive oil, potatoes ($9.25).

  1. My favorite Italian restaurants always make me feel like I'm in someone's home.

  2. Love Osteria Mamma! Been craving that squid ink pasta with bottarga. Must go back soon!

  3. I feel like I drove by there recently, but I have no idea why that would be the case.

    That was a great story I just told.

  4. This explains the unusual number of visits I got out of nowhere! Ha. I've been meaning to go back!

  5. Looks like a delicious meal to me too! I love Italian food!

  6. oh, that bolognese! that pasta looks so damn good. what can i say, my tastes are simple.

    but you knew that already.

  7. I'm finally gonna go tonight! :)
    No BBE, but they are on though they kinda charge way more than other restaurants, so gotta wait for the 80% off sale!
