Craving veal osso buco but can't find any Itaian restaurants with the dish listed on the menu...

I know about the restaurant named Osso Buco but have been discouraged from trying it. Have seen lamb osso buco recently listed but would prefer the veal. Can anybody help with some recs?

  1. Villa Mosconi has it. Solid (if pricey) old school Italian.

    1. re: boccalupo

      With prices for regular entrees ranging from mid-teens to mid-20s I would not call Villa Mosconi "pricey." I agree, solid, old-school Italian. If you want to get ripped off, Da Silvano is a much better choice. As foodwhisperer observes, ossso bucco is usually a special.

    2. Many restaurants have Osso Bucco as a special and not on the regular menu. Too bad Joe's and also Ennio and Michael's closed, they both had excellent Osso Bucco on Sundays, and the Osso Bucco sauce was great over pasta. D'Andrea has a lamb shank on the regular menu that is very good. Da Silvano has Osso Bucco on the regular menu. Osso Bucco Restaurant upper east side and the one on University both have it on regular menu. Gigino has it as a special sometimes, Girasole has it sometimes too.

        On the dinner menu at Casa Nonna:

        On the dinner menu at Gente:

        On the dinner menu at Sotto Cinque:

        Has anyone ordered Babbo's Deconstructed Osso Buco for 2 lately?

        I've found the "find-a -food" search feature on Menupages to be useful. Kathryn pointed this feature out to me when I was looking for blintzes south of 42nd St, and I've been using it ever since.
