Thank you, 2roadsdiverge!
This wonderful trip report pushed us to return to Osteria; we hadn't been there since it first opened.
It was one of the best meals we've had in years.
Every course was outstanding: our pizza (Lombarda), our grilled octopus, our rigatoni with chicken livers, our corn gelato.
Our friends had the Parma pizza and the veal pasta special, and were equally impressed.
The menu was so enticing that we can't wait to return and try other selections. Then again, it will be hard to resist ordering some of the same items.
