Alba Osteria Restaurant Review

: Tucked away in the burgeoning area around Mount Vernon Square, this tiny Italian eatery exudes joy brought to you by a helpful staff and small plates, inspired by Roberto Donna. Take the lunch menu, for example: your best bet is to order a sampling plate that will include the pasta of the day, meatballs and salad. And don’t pass up the unique fried bread that comes with an array of cold cuts and Italian cheeses. Larger servings of lamb sausage, spicy shrimp or pork shoulder arrive with their own matching sides. Those with even bigger appetites can try the pasta dishes, especially the agnolotti with braised beef short ribs. As for desserts, the unique snow white polenta with crunchy caramel is a must. Happy hours, brunches and dinners offer patrons more gastronomic treats. Be sure to browse through the lengthy Italian wine list to pair a selection with your meal.
