Must-Orders at Osteria Mozza?

aching May 21, 2008 12:23 PM

I know there have been a zillion posts on Osteria Mozza, but I didn't see one that seemed to cover this exact topic. I just scored a res next month (long-time drooler, first-time eater), and I'd like to know which dishes are stand-outs!

TIA!

        i like the grilled beef tagliata and the orechiette.

        bombolini is great for dessert too

          I stick with the mozzarella bar: grilled octopus, tripe, and burrata with artichoke are my favorites. The butter lettuce salad is also very good.

          My favorite dessert is the olive oil cakes with gelato.

            Anything from the mozzarella bar. From the pastas, my favorite is the orecchiette with sausage and chard, though the gnocchi with boar ragout is not far behind. Among the secondi, I am very fond of the guinea hen, the quail, the beef brasato and the lamb shank.

              The burrata with bacon, marinated escarole & caramelized shallots is a must, if you're into burrata. Also, agree on the orecchiette w/sausage.

                it appears that we have a similar palate. i also recommend the orechiette, the gnocchi and the guinea fowl/hen. the roasted pork loin with the fat cap is quite good as well.
