This centro storico restaurant's simple and spartan ambiance is what makes it elegant. For example the lighting: bulbs on wires hanging in staggered arrangement from the ceiling.
The food is tasty, mostly Roman fare, often classics revisited or with a simple variation. Galletto with red peppers...
Creamy carbonara with homemade tagliolini and shaved Parmesan. So creamy it seemed as if each serving was made with half a dozen yolks.
Our pecorino antipasto came with three different homemade jams: crunchy red onion and clove and persimmon were the tastiest.
Fruit & crostata for dessert.
The restaurant owner has opted to not have a website and as Osteria is always full, well, who needs one!
