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!
