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).
Gorgonzola salad -- baby wild arugula, caramelized walnuts, brown pear, imported Gorgonzola ($8.95).
Tagliatelle bolognese -- veal, pork, sausage, tomato sauce ($15.25).
Ravioli burro e salvia -- spinach and ricotta cheese ravioli in butter and sage ($13.95).
Torta della nonna -- custard cream tart ($7.50).
For a more detailed (and far more immediate) reaction to the food, go read Starchy Marie!
I want that ravioli.ReplyDelete
My favorite Italian restaurants always make me feel like I'm in someone's home.ReplyDelete
Love Osteria Mamma! Been craving that squid ink pasta with bottarga. Must go back soon!ReplyDelete
I feel like I drove by there recently, but I have no idea why that would be the case.ReplyDelete
That was a great story I just told.
This explains the unusual number of visits I got out of nowhere! Ha. I've been meaning to go back!ReplyDelete

No BBE, but they are on restaurant.com though they kinda charge way more than other restaurants, so gotta wait for the 80% off sale!
