Osteria La Madia Restaurant Review

: The soaring, enclosed glass wine cellar is a highlight of Osteria La Madia’s interior. More than 75 varietal selections from the likes of California, Washington, Chile, France, Italy, Germany, Austria and Spain are housed for guests to order by the four-, six- or seven-ounce glass, or, alternatively, the bottle. Sip a cocktail such as the Aperol Spritz or Negroni. As for the seasonal menu, start with fire-roasted artichokes or bruschetta with wild mushroom. Choose from an array of formaggio, prosciutto and salumi. An affordable and filling meal can be had with one of the pizzas, made to order in the wood-fired oven; we’re partial to the grape and Tallegio version with prosciutto, an inventive sweet-savory blend. Gluten-free crust is available. House-made pastas include orecchiette with chicken sausage, eggplant, tomato and olives. Baby carrots and risotto pair with short ribs braised in Chianti. For dessert, try the chocolate polenta cake. Arriving in a cast-iron skillet, it is doused in confectioner’s sugar and features a molten lava center.
